After missing out on reaching the postseason for the third time in the last four seasons, the Baltimore Ravens (8-8 SU, 7-9 ATS) and head coach Jim Harbaugh may be in for a do-or-die kind of campaign in 2017. If you’re looking to strike pay dirt on some of Baltimore’s games this coming season, then you’re going to get a look at a half-dozen games that Joe Flacco and the Ravens should get some good victories in this coming season. Here is a look at Baltimore’s 2016 stats, followed by the top six must-bet games on their 2017 schedule with the latest NFL odds for each game.

Baltimore Ravens 2017 NFL Betting Guide

Week 2

Browns at Ravens (-9.5)

Analysis: Round and round it goes, who will be the Browns starting quarterback in 2017, nobody knows! The Ravens beat the AFC North division rival Browns by three touchdowns at home a year ago and should be able to duplicate that feat in their collective sleep in 2017 to cover the spread as nearly double-digit home faves in Week 2.

NFL Pick: Baltimore 28 Cleveland 14

Week 3

Ravens (-1.5) at Jaguars in London

Analysis: I really like Jacksonville’s additions of Tom Coughlin as the head of their football operations and to a lesser degree, head coach Doug Marrone, but as long as mediocre signal-caller Blake Bortles is under center, then the Jags don’t stand a chance of beating a solid team like Baltimore, especially after going 1-7 SU on the road last season.

NFL Pick: Baltimore 27 Jacksonville 21

Week 6

Bears at Ravens (-7)

Analysis: I know the Bears are expecting to have a decent campaign out of former Tampa Bay backup Mike Glennon, but Chicago has so many problems at almost every position on the field that they simply won’t be able to put many points on the board against a Ravens defense that was very good last season and has been for the better part of the last decade and a half.

NFL Pick: Baltimore 24 Chicago 14

Week 13

Lions at Ravens (-3)

Analysis: The Lions and Ravens are nearly identical teams that are both pretty good, but certainly not great. Simply put, this is a matchup that Baltimore should win and narrowly cover the spread in at home, particularly seeing as how Detroit went an uninspiring 3-5 on the road last season.

NFL Pick: Baltimore 28 Detroit 24

Week 15

Ravens (-4) at Browns

Analysis: At home or on the road, the Ravens are simply better than the Browns on both sides of the ball. After sweeping the division rival Browns a year ago, Baltimore does it again in 2017!

NFL Pick: Baltimore 24 Cleveland 17

Week 16

Colts at Ravens (-3)

Analysis: Last but not least, I like the Ravens to hold down the fort at home against an Indianapolis team that recorded an identical 8-8 record last season while going 4-4 SU and 4-3-1 ATS on the road. Baltimore should be able to put some points on the board against an Indy defense that gave up 24.5 points per game to rank 22nd in points allowed. it’s going to be close, but I like Joe Flacco and company to get the narrow home win.

NFL Pick: Baltimore 28 Indianapolis 24
