While most sportsbooks have the Chiefs narrowly ahead of the Ravens as favorites to win the Super Bowl, there are a few sportsbooks with Baltimore at the top of the list. One book has the Ravens at +400, per Oddschecker. At those odds, the implied probability is 20%.
“The Chiefs have been the undisputed favorites throughout the entirety of the off season but with just days to go until the season begins, the markets have shifted,” Oddschecker spokesman Pete Watt tells Pro Football Action.
“This could be due to a flurry of wagers behind the Ravens, or perhaps some very positive noises coming out of training camps. Whatever it is, if you’re of a Baltimore persuasion then you certainly won’t be complaining.”

Baltimore led the league in DVOA last season behind strong play from Lamar Jackson and a stellar defense. They earned the top seed in the AFC but ultimately, went 0-1 in the postseason, losing to Tennessee at home.
DraftKings has Kansas City at +600 and Baltimore at +650, both in line with the majority of the market. The AFC powerhouses have distanced themselves from the remainder of the conference, as the Patriots at +2200 are the closest team to either of them.
