Baltimore Ravens Betting

It was a disappointing end to the season for the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens were the favorites to win it all per the Super Bowl betting odds for the last two months, but they were one and done in the playoffs after a stunning loss to Tennessee as a double-digit favorite on the NFL betting line. Lamar Jackson’s emergence will ensure that Baltimore is one of the favorites to win it all in 2020, yet there are many skeptics now that Jackson is 0-2 in the postseason in his short career.

Season Recap

Baltimore was the best team in the NFL throughout the season. The Ravens started the season 2-2, but they won their last 12 games to earn the No. 1 seed in the AFC. They hammered division winners like New England and Houston in the middle of their run, and they outlasted San Francisco to become the favorite to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in early February.

Jackson had a transcendent campaign, and he is a virtual lock to be named the 2019 NFL MVP after one of the most impressive seasons we have ever seen in the history of pro football. The former Heisman Trophy winner set the single season rushing record for a quarterback with 1,206 yards on the ground, averaging 6.9 YPC with seven touchdowns. He proved that he can be an effective passer too, leading the league in touchdown passes with 36 scores.

His passing numbers were pretty spectacular, as Jackson completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 3,127 yards, and his mobility wreaked havoc on defenses. He has shown the world what to expect from the quarterback position going forward in the NFL, and that could lead to a revolution at the position in the coming years.

Jackson was the star of the offense, but he wasn’t the only elite performer on this side of the ball. Mark Ingram had an excellent year on the ground, surpassing 1,000 yards in 15 games and registering 10 touchdowns on the season. Mark Andrews was selected to the Pro Bowl after leading the team with 64 receptions for 852 yards and 10 touchdowns, while Marquise Brown had a solid rookie campaign despite being hampered by injury.

The Ravens improved on defense as the season went on too. Baltimore’s defense got much better after the Ravens traded for Marcus Peters, and this secondary had three Pro Bowlers in Peters, Marlon Humphrey, and Earl Thomas III.

Unfortunately for Baltimore, this defense couldn’t stop Tennessee’s old school running game in the divisional round of the playoffs. Ryan Tannehill completed just 7 of 14 passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns, as Derrick Henry was the bell cow once again for the Titans.

Henry has the best numbers for a running back over an eight-game stretch in NFL history. He carried the ball 30 times for 195 yards against Baltimore, and he threw for a touchdown in the red zone too. Tennessee has relied on Henry to move the chains on the ground more than any other team in recent history, and that strategy continues to work in the pass-happy NFL.

To his credit, Jackson had a solid game in the loss. He threw two costly interceptions, but Jackson threw for 365 yards and ran for 143 yards to become one of the few quarterbacks responsible for more than 500 of offense in playoff history. Mark Ingram Jr.’s calf injury left him limited, forcing Jackson to do it all, and he can’t be too upset with his performance.

2020 Season Preview

The key for Baltimore this offseason is getting more targets for Jackson. Marquise Brown showed a lot of potential in an injury-plagued rookie season, but Jackson’s favorite targets aside from Brown were running backs and tight ends. Willie Snead was the second-most productive receiver on the team, catching 31 passes for 339 yards and five touchdowns, so look for Harbaugh to sign a veteran or two here.

Baltimore’s front seven will likely see some changes too as a result of the Tennessee game. The Ravens did well to overcome the loss of a great player like Za’Darius Smith, but the defensive line and linebacking corps could use a facelift. There isn’t much else to fix on this team though, and Baltimore could open the 2020 NFL season as the favorite to win the Super Bowl.
