Betting On The Baltimore Ravens To Win The Super Bowl

They haven’t really made that many changed to their team during the offseason besides one that could prove to be a game-changer. This should be one of the favorite bets to make amongst sports bettors as they are poised to have a strong 2020 season. Below, you will find the chances of the Ravens winning the Super Bowl, winning the AFC Championship and winning the AFC North.
COVID-19 and The Baltimore Ravens
The Baltimore Ravens saw two of their players decide to opt-out for the season in kick returner, De’Anthony Thomas and offensive lineman Andre Smith. They have also had to place just rookie safety Nigel Warrior on the reserve/COVID-19 list who has since returned to the team. Other than him, there have been no other reported cases on the team.
There was an attempt to allow just 7,500 fans at games, but that request was denied by the Maryland Governor. For right now, there will be no fans allowed at M&T Bank Stadium during the initial part of the season. The team will continue to make the proper adjustments to allow fans to attend games.

What Are The Baltimore Ravens Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
The Ravens have not been able to capitalize on their powerhouse of a season from a year ago as they seem to have lost the spark they had. They opened up with the season with +550 odds to win the Super Bowl which were the second shortest odds and have fallen back to +1200 since then. Their quarterback, Lamar Jackson, has not been able to make good use out of his surrounding cast which has caused them to drop important games and also drop their Super Bowl odds.
The Baltimore Ravens have also seen their odds to win the AFC Championship slide down as well as they have gone from the second spot on the odds board at +300 down to +650 which is third. They did not take much of a dip, but they have fallen being that they have lost to the Chiefs and Steelers who are sitting in front of them.
The Ravens are currently in second place on the AFC North odds boards but they are far behind the top spot at that with their odds sitting at +575. They share their division with the Pittsburgh Steelers who are currently the only undefeated team left in the league which certainly plays a role in why the Ravens odds are far behind. If the Ravens could capitalize on their games to end the season, they could give the Steelers a run for their money.
Marquis Brown worked out perfect for the Ravens last year so this year’s NFL Draft expects the same from whomever they take a chance on and grab. Bettors who want to get involved in placing bets on Ravens draft plans need to use their online sportsbooks because local sportsbooks have law requirements that doesn’t support them betting on NFL events other than the games. Sign up for an offshore account, and bet on the Ravens’ draft.
Having so much fun and making it look easy last year, Jackson and the Ravens finished with a 14-2 record winning the division and have a first-round bye. With a great season like last year, this team can only go up but oddsmakers have set the over-under wins for the Ravens at 11. Odds have stayed pretty even, so bringing back everyone on their team this team to make a run at the Super Bowl should help the over hit.
2020 Ravens Player Props
The Ravens are among the top teams thought to win the Lombardi trophy in Tampa, Florida this season. Last year’s offense took the league by storm and brought a lot of attention to the team. Most of the confidence in the team lies in the leader of the team, quarterback Lamar Jackson and his offense. Mark Andrews has began to make a name as a top tight end in the league and there are high hopes for the production of these two for the Ravens in 2020.
In his first year starting, Lamar Jackson led the league in passes at 36 touchdowns. The odds of the passing touchdown are set at 26.5 and 3299.5 passing yards, bettors are taking the over for both. The double threat also finished with the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single season after running for 1206 yards. The sportsbooks have set his rushing yards for this year at 919.5 yards and the odds are slightly leaning to the under.
Mark Andrew is another player that had a breakout year last year. He had the second-best receiving grade in the league at 90.2 and now averages 14 yards a reception after only two years. Last year he finished with 10 TDs but his odds are set at 9.5 and the under is favored for this year. The receiving yards are set at 899.5 and his projected receptions are set at 64.5 catches.
