The Baltimore Ravens certainly had an interesting offseason. Negotiations between the organization and franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson appeared to hit the point of no return when Jackson divulged in late March that he requested a trade. But the sides were able to settle on a deal that should keep Jackson in Charm City for years to come.
Jackson looks to finally have the weapons needed to prove his chops as a passer. The team signed coveted free agent wideout Odell Beckham Jr. Baltimore also drafted wide receiver Zay Flowers in the first round of this year’s draft.
The Ravens will have to deal with a loaded AFC, but they are poised to have a productive season in 2023.

Jackson remains one of the most unique weapons in the NFL. Now that he has a multitude of weapons, Baltimore may finally be able to outscore their opponents. That trait is a necessity these days in a loaded AFC.
Playing the schedule game is always tricky. But Baltimore has early home games against Houston and Indianapolis. Both teams are expected to start rookie quarterbacks. The Ravens should get off to a hot start, and they can ride that momentum to a double-digit win total.

The AFC North will be a grind this season, as will the conference in general. But I believe Baltimore will be up to the task. They currently have the fifth-shortest odds in the conference to make the playoffs. Their offensive upgrades will lead the Ravens to their fifth playoff berth in six seasons.
Ravens Futures Prop Bets
Ravens to Win Over 3.5 Divisional Games (+115)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit
Baltimore went 3-3 in divisional games a year ago. But the final four games against AFC North opponents occurred without Jackson. This year’s schedule is a bit more front-loaded with divisional foes.
The Ravens play three AFC North opponents in their first five games and five in their first 11. If Jackson can stay upright, the Ravens will have an excellent chance of winning at least four of their six divisional games.
Ravens to Finish Second in AFC North (+235)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units
As good as the Ravens can be, I wonder if they can dethrone the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North. The Bengals have won two straight division titles and show no signs of slowing down.
While the division will remain competitive, Baltimore is a notch above Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Given the factors at play in the AFC North, this bet represents good value.
Ravens to Win Exactly 11 Games (+550)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.2 units
Baltimore was 7-4 in games Jackson started last season. All four losses came to teams who made the playoffs last year. This is a quality team that should win a lot of games. A sprinkle on an exact win total could prove fruitful in this scenario.

How to Bet on Ravens Games in 2023
How to Bet Ravens Moneylines
NFL moneyline wagers are the simplest forms of NFL bets. All you have to do is pick a team to win a given game, and if they do, you win your bet.
Since winning is the only requirement to cash your bet, the odds for NFL moneylines can vary greatly depending on each team’s implied probability of winning (or losing) that game. Favorites are designated by a minus symbol (-200), whereas underdogs are represented by a plus symbol (+200).
If the Ravens are a (-200) favorite against the rival Bengals, you would have to bet $20 to turn a $10 profit. If Baltimore was a (+200) underdog, you would profit $20 off a $10 bet.
- 2022 Ravens Moneyline Record: 10-8
How to Bet Ravens Spreads
Betting the spread is the most efficient way to wager on NFL games, as it presents two evenly priced options. The spread, which is assigned a value by the books, is the number of points that the favorite is expected to win by against the underdog.
If the Ravens are 6-point favorites over the Commanders, the spread for that game will be set up like this: Ravens -6 (-110) vs Commanders +6 (-110).
In this scenario, the Ravens would have to win by more than six points for you to win your bet. If they were to win by a pair of field goals, your bet would push and you would recoup your initial wager.
Baltimore was the only team in the NFL to cover the spread exactly half the time in 2021, and should be a decent bet moving forward as the roster seems to have improved over the offseason.
- 2022 Ravens Against the Spread Record: 7-9-2
How to Bet Ravens Over/Unders
If you don’t want to pick a side, you can still bet on Ravens games by wagering on the total number of points scored.
Sportsbooks set the amount of combined points they expect both teams in the game to score, and then you can bet on either the Over or the Under.
If you expect Jackson, Beckham, and the Ravens to light up the scoreboard, then you’ll probably want to take the Over. If you think a specific game could be more defensive, then you would bet the Under. Philly’s games exceeded scoring expectations last season, but they should be priced higher this year after the additions to the offense.
- 2022 Ravens Over/Under Record: 6-12
