What to Know: Baltimore won the division in 2018 for the first time since 2012, but their playoff stay was a short one as they lost to the Los Angeles Chargers in the opening round. Free agency gave this team a new look. All three linebackers — Za’Darius Smith (Green Bay), C.J. Mosley (New York Jets) and Terrell Suggs (Arizona)— left for different teams along with safety Eric Weddle (Los Angeles Rams). But the team did add safety Earl Thomas, from Seattl, one of the best players in the league at his position.
Best Players: Quarterback Lamar Jackson is being counted on to take over the team’s offense. He led the Ravens to the playoffs in his first year. Jackson can really run. He needs to develop his game as a passer. Running back Mark Ingram signed as a free agent from the New Orleans Saints should help the team’s running game immensely.
How to Bet: Baltimore is a pretty consistent team. The Ravens generally win the games they are supposed to win and lose the games they are supposed to lose. So bet them when they are a slight favorite and against them as an underdog. In terms of over/under betting, they tend to go toward the under.
