Last season, in Lamar Jackson‘s first full season as a starter, the Ravens entered the season with an 8.5 win total and blew past that in Week 12 on their way to 14 wins.

Heading into 2020, the club could be primed for another win for over bettors. The team has a big hole with Marshal Yanda retiring but other than that, there are not many concerns on the roster heading into the 2020 campaign, as Peter King of NBC Sports writes in his latest FMIA.

Baltimore got a steal in the draft at No. 55 with J.K. Dobbins (the club has been hyping him up all offseason). They should have a healthy Hollywood Brown heading into the campaign (and may even have his cousin, Antonio) and on defense, they’ve reloaded with linebackers in the draft and All-Pro Calais Campbell through trade with Jacksonville.

King has the franchise sitting at No. 2 in his power rankings, behind only the Chiefs, and he believes 13-3 or better is a reasonable projection.

This year, Baltimore’s O/U is 11.5 (FanDuel) with the under juiced up to -125. The over is just +105.


Ravens’ Schedule

The team’s schedule is really a tale of two seasons. The Ravens won’t need to get on a plane for a major stretch of the season. Cleveland comes to town in week 1 and they travel to Houston in week 2, but after that, the Ravens won’t get on a plane until week 9.

The two road games between week 3 and week 9: Washington, which is a 31-mile bus ride, and Philadelphia, which is a 106-mile bus ride. Yes, there is some travel after that, though the club’s last five contests all come against non-playoff teams from the 2019 season, so Baltimore could have a strong finish as they look to avenge their playoff woes from the last two season.
