Ravens Super Bowl Odds Hit Highest Mark In Two Years

  • The Baltimore Ravens currently sit with +2500 odds to win the Super Bowl heading into their Wednesday matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
  • This is a stark drop off from where the Ravens began the season, with some books having them as low as +450 back in September.
  • The Ravens are currently 6-4 and have lost back to back games.

BALTIMORE – The year is 2019. The Baltimore Ravens are one of the best teams in the NFL behind first time MVP Lamar Jackson.

The 2019 Ravens ended the regular season 14-2, and headed into the playoffs as the number one seed in the AFC. The Ravens won nine games in a row at one point, and had scored more points in a single season by Week 15 than any Baltimore Ravens team in history.

While the Ravens were upset by the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the playoffs, many were excited at the trajectory of the franchise heading into 2020.

Following the 2019 Super Bowl, the Ravens' odds to win the 2020 Super Bowl were around +650 on most Super Bowl betting sites.

The Ravens began their 2020 season with a 38-6 blowout of the Cleveland Browns, followed by a win over the Houston Texans. Their Super Bowl odds just before the Kansas City game were their lowest of the year, at +450.

Following the loss to the Chiefs, the Ravens were able to rebound with three straight wins, putting their Super Bowl odds around +550 until a matchup with the Steelers.

The Ravens were defeated 24-28 to a still undefeated Pittsburgh team that exposed the biggest weaknesses in the Ravens' gameplan. Namely, the struggles of Lamar Jackson.

Throughout the first eight games of the season, Jackson’s highest passing yardage total was just 249 against the Patriots in Week 2. He hadn’t thrown for more than two touchdowns the entire season, and had only rushed for over 100 yards once.

The Steelers' loss put the Ravens at +880 odds to win Super Bowl LV.

While Jackson began to show signs of struggling, the blame could hardly be placed on the defense which ranks second in the NFL in scoring behind all-pros like Marlon Humphrey and Calais Campbell.

The defense had been bailing out the offense for the Ravens all season, much different than the scene in 2019.

Following the game against the Steelers, the Ravens appeared to be back on track with a big win over a good Indianapolis Colts team.

Instead, the Ravens dropped two in a row to the New England Patriots and the Tennessee Titans, bringing their Super Bowl odds to a whopping +2000.

The Ravens had the opportunity in front of them to end all the doubt by taking down the undefeated Steelers until the unthinkable happened.

A positive COVID test for Jackson put the game on pause, leading to the current situation of an NFL game slated to play on Wednesday afternoon.

This brought the Ravens' odds to their highest in nearly two years, +2500 odds to win the Super Bowl.

While the Ravens' trials and tribulations have been well documented, all it takes to prove the doubters wrong is to win football games.

For bettors who believe the Ravens still have it in them, now is the time to lock in those SB55 bets.
