If you’re an NFL betting enthusiast that likes making long-term and potentially bankroll-boosting props odds bets and you’re planning on betting on the regular season win total odds surrounding some of the league’s 32 teams, then you’re in luck. Thanks to my expert betting analysis and prediction on the Baltimore Ravens’ regular season victory total, you’re going to have an excellent opportunity to cash in on Baltimore’s 2018 win total odds.
While the Baltimore Ravens blew a golden opportunity to make the playoffs by losing their regular season finale at home a year ago, Baltimore is hoping to get back in the postseason in a big way in 2018 and it could very well happen. Let’s find out what’s going to go down as I offer up my expert pick on every game on Baltimore’s 2018 schedule.
Baltimore has gone 5-1 in six regular season home openers at M&T Bank Stadium and they’ll get the easy home win over a Buffalo Bills team that has question marks at quarterback with either unproven veteran, A.J. McCarron or second-year signal-caller Nathan Peterman. Win. 1-0
If veteran quarterback Case Keenum can come close to repeating his career year with the Vikings from last season, the Broncos could soar in 2018. However, I’m not sure about that and I think the Broncos blew it in a big way by letting Wade Phillips walk a couple of years ago. Win. 2-1
Week 4 at Pittsburgh Steelers
Sorry, but the Ravens just won’t be their longtime division rivals on the road in this Week 4 matchup at Heinz Field. Loss. 2-2
Week 5 at Cleveland Browns
The Browns made some serious upgrades this offseason and I believe we will see it pay dividends in this Week 5 divisional matchup at home. Loss. 2-3
Week 6 at Tennessee Titans
The Titans have gone 10-2 in their last 12 home games at Nissan Stadium, including a 23-20 win over Baltimore last season. Marcus Mariota leads Tennessee to the hard-fought win in this one! Loss. 2-4
Week 7 vs. New Orleans Saints
Future Hall of Fame superstar quarterback Drew Brees has never beaten Baltimore in his career, but guess what MYBookie NFL betting buffs? That little known fact changes in this Week 7 road date. Loss. 2-5
Week 8 at Carolina Panthers
The Panthers have gone a robust 18-5 in their last 23 home games with cam Newton under center. They’ll get the win again against a Ravens team that I expect to be offensively-challenged again in 2018. Loss. 2-6.
Week 9 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Ravens got swept by the Steelers during the regular season a year ago but sheer desperation will lead them to the narrow home win in this Week 9 divisional clash. Win. 3-6.
Week 10 BYE
Week 11 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
After getting knocked out of the playoffs last season and then losing to Cincinnati in their Week 2 meeting, Baltimore will finally get the revenge they’ve been seeking against the Bengals. Win. 4-6.
Week 12 vs. Oakland Raiders
The Ravens won in Oakland last season, but Derek Carr missed that contest and Jon Gruden was still in the TV booth. Oakland will make a game of this contest, but the travel to the east coast will bite them in the butt. Win. 5-6.
Week 13 at Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan is going to show Joe Flacco a thing or three about how to actually play quarterback in the NFL! Atlanta holds it down at home in this Week 13 matchup. Loss. 5-7.
Week 14 at Kansas City Chiefs
Baltimore has gone 20-8 against rookie or second-year quarterbacks under coach John Harbaugh, but I like the strong-armed Patrick Mahomes to lead Kansas City to victory at Arrowhead Stadium in this one! Loss. 5-8.
Week 15 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, Tampa Bay made a major mistake by not firing lame-duck head coach Dirk Koetter after last season’s nightmare campaign. Win. 6-8.
Week 16 at Los Angeles Chargers, TBD
The Chargers have some realistic playoff expectations and arguably the best pair of defensive linemen in football, not to mention they just look like a different bunch under head coach Anthony Lynn. The Bolts win what will be a huge Week 16 home date! Loss. 6-9
Week 17 vs. Cleveland Browns, 1:00 PM ET
The Ravens have beaten the Browns in nine of their last 10 home matchups and this regular season finale will almost assuredly be another. Win. 7-9
As you can see, I’ve got Baltimore playing under their 8.5-game win total odds. I will admit that is’ quite possible that Baltimore manages to win one more game, but I just don’t see a nine-win season coming in 2018. Play the Under.
