The Baltimore Ravens 2021-2022 season started and ended the same way: injury-riddled. The Ravens’ preseason and training camp saw key starters go down with season-ending injuries. Then the team ultimately lost Lamar Jackson, and any postseason hopes, in Week 14.
A new season means a new start, but how are odds makers viewing the Ravens for the 2022-2023 season? Let’s take a look at the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl 57 odds.
Ravens Super Bowl 57 Odds
Line shopping is an important, simple task you can do to increase your chances of being a profitable sports bettor. Once online sports betting is live Maryland, checking odds at different sportsbooks will be more feasible than driving to a physical location that may or may not be close to you. This will also be key for finding the best Maryland sports betting bonus offers when the time comes.
Below are the ten teams with the shortest odds to win Super Bowl 57 from Caesars, DraftKings, and FanDuel. Ravens fans will be seeing the Caesars brand often, as the two formed a five-year partnership making Caesars the premier betting partner for Purple Pain.
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+750||+700||+750|
|Green Bay Packers||+1100||+1000||+1200|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+1100||+1000||+1000|
|Los Angeles Rams||+1200||+1200||+1100|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+1500||+1400||+1400|
|San Francisco 49ers||+1600||+1600||+1600|
Caesars is the only sportsbook of the three to not have the Ravens as a top ten team, though Baltimore is just outside with the 11th-shortest odds. While some teams have seen their Super Bowl 57 odds shift significantly since lines opened, the Ravens’ odds have stayed stagnant at +2000.
Ravens’ Offensive Changes
The biggest offseason change on the offensive side of the ball came as a major surprise during the first night of the 2022 NFL Draft. The Ravens traded away top wide receiver Marquise Brown and a third-round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for the 23rd overall pick. Baltimore used that pick to select Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum to shore up the offensive line. The team also added Morgan Moses at right tackle and it looks like All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley should be back healthy this season.
These three players will be significant pieces for the Ravens as they will be looking to regain their run-first offensive identity. The 611 team pass attempts last year were the most for Baltimore since the 2016-2017 season.
Ravens’ Defensive Changes
While Baltimore’s offensive identity has changed over recent years, the defense has remained a constant. Last year’s unit saw the Ravens give up the most points and yards they had allowed since the 2015 and 1996 seasons, respectively.
The Ravens’ secondary went through the most changes. Tavon Young, Anthony Averett, and Deshon Elliott joined new teams. Baltimore made a big splash in free agency, however, signing free safety Marcus Williams to a 5-year, $70 million deal. The team also selected safety Kyle Hamilton with their first 2022 NFL Draft selection, signed corner Kyle Fuller, and brought back defensive lineman Michael Pierce after a one-year stint with the Minnesota Vikings.
A healthy Lamar Jackson and a revamped defense will no doubt keep the Ravens among the favorites in the AFC. They will need to strike a balance between their passing and rushing offense, particularly at the beginning of the season. Running back J.K. Dobbins will be working his way back from a torn ACL, Gus Edwards is still rehabbing, and the depth chart behind them are average to below-average options.
In Baltimore’s favor is a weaker Pittsburgh Steelers team and the impending Deshaun Watson suspension. The AFC as a whole, however, got much stronger with the additions of players like Russell Wilson, Davante Adams, Khalil Mack, and Von Miller.
