Baltimore Ravens odds, season predictions and best NFL futures bets Guide 2023

| |

Welcome to The Bet Club NFL Baltimore Ravens betting guide for 2023.

The Baltimore Ravens tackled their major offseason concern head-on when Lamar Jackson signed a 5-year extension in April, resolving what had appeared to be a strained relationship between him and the team. With that chapter now firmly in the rear-view mirror, attention can shift to whether the Ravens can elevate themselves from being a solid team to one capable of contending for another Super Bowl victory.

The Ravens’ past two seasons bore a striking resemblance, as Jackson’s campaigns were cut short by injuries, with Week 13 marking the endpoint both times. Surprisingly, quarterback injuries haven’t been their Achilles’ heel; instead, it’s been the misfortune of running backs suffering knee injuries at an alarming rate during practice. Despite these setbacks, many believe this team possesses the potential to be a formidable force if granted an injury-free run, a prospect that has eluded them in recent years.

The addition of new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, taking over from Greg Roman, whose schemes were often criticized as pedestrian, should provide a boost. However, how well Monken’s more dynamic approach meshes with Jackson’s style remains to be seen.

Now, let’s delve into the odds and prime betting opportunities surrounding the Baltimore Ravens for the upcoming season.

Baltimore Ravens 2022 season recap

The Ravens secured a spot in the AFC Playoffs as the #6 seed, but their postseason journey was short-lived, ending in the wildcard round with Tyler Huntley at the helm. Despite a valiant effort against the Bengals, a pivotal 98-yard fumble-return TD ultimately proved to be the turning point in the game.

Their season started with a streak of inconsistency, as they alternated wins and losses in their first 7 games. However, a mid-season surge saw them racking up 6 wins in 7 games. Unfortunately, this impressive run was interrupted by Lamar Jackson’s injury near the end of it. Despite this setback, the team managed to secure a 3-3 finish, allowing them to achieve a double-digit win total. This was a significant improvement compared to the previous season when the Ravens suffered a precipitous fall from an 8-3 record to an 8-9 finish after Jackson’s injury.

Baltimore Ravens 2023 NFL season predictions

Ravens fans are undoubtedly hoping for a full season of a healthy and content Lamar Jackson in the upcoming season. However, it’s a challenging task to envision the team having made enough strides to contend for supremacy in the highly competitive AFC this year. With that in mind, here are our predictions related to the Baltimore Ravens for the upcoming season.

Best bet: Under 10.5 wins (-120)

The Ravens’ offensive hopes now hinge on the shoulders of veterans like Odell Beckham Jr. and Nelson Agholor, although it’s acknowledged that they might not offer the same level of impact they once did. However, the arrival of new coordinator Todd Monken brings the promise of a more exhilarating Ravens offense compared to recent seasons. The spotlight on offense is squarely on rookie Zay Flowers, who carries the potential to make a significant impact.

The specter of Lamar Jackson’s injury history is an undeniable concern, as he has played only 12 games in each of the last two seasons. Regardless of his contract, there are no guarantees of better luck with injuries this time around.

On the defensive front, the Ravens have bid farewell to experienced veterans like Chuck Clark, Marcus Peters, Calais Campbell, and Justin Houston. Additionally, Pro Bowl cornerback Marlon Humphrey’s foot injury threatens to sideline him at the start of the season. While the Ravens should remain competitive and approach last season’s win tally, expecting them to exceed it in such a competitive division is indeed a challenging proposition. Therefore, opting for the under on their win total appears to be a prudent choice.

Baltimore Ravens season record prediction: 10-7

The Ravens’ early schedule features three physical divisional games within their first five matchups, adding an extra layer of difficulty to their start. Additionally, the scheduling dynamics pose a challenge, with a Week 6 trip to London followed by a demanding home contest against the Lions with no rest.

The December slate, which includes matchups against the Jaguars, 49ers, and Dolphins, promises a tough stretch during the holiday period, regardless of Lamar Jackson’s availability for the season’s final run. Given these factors, it appears the Ravens are poised for a season that aligns closely with last year’s 10-7 finish.
