Baltimore Ravens Odds and Futures Bets
Now that you can wager on the Baltimore Ravens from anywhere in the state of Maryland, finding out which market to wager on is the fun part. Popular wagers for Ravens fans will be on the futures markets, such as the Ravens to win the Super Bowl, the AFC Championship, or winning the AFC North. Here are some futures markets to watch when betting on the Ravens.
Ravens Super Bowl Odds – The current Ravens Super Bowl odds are +2800, on DraftKings Sportsbook. This means that if you wagered $100 on the Ravens to win the big game and they succeeded, you would win $2800 along with your wager back. The Ravens have the eighth-best odds to win the Super Bowl, behind the Bills, Eagles, Chiefs, 49ers, Bengals, Cowboys, and Vikings.
Odds to win AFC Championship – If you believe the Ravens will win the AFC Championship, you can wager on them to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl at +1400.
Odds to win the AFC East – The Ravens are +160 to win the AFC East, behind the Bengals at -185.
The Ravens are having a great season so far despite the loss of Lamar Jackson for some time, and are a popular bet for the above markets. If you wanted to bet on the Ravens’ games individually, you can do that too.
What Types Of Bets Can I Place On The Ravens This Weekend?
With Maryland sports betting live, there are tons of betting markets you can place on the Baltimore Ravens.
For their Week 16 matchup against the Falcons, here are some betting markets you are able to wager now that online sports betting is live in Maryland – and how to take advantage of them.
Spread – Betting on the spread is essentially betting on an assigned point spread made by the oddsmakers on the point difference in the game. For Falcons vs. Ravens in Week 16, the current spread is Ravens (-7.5), which means the Ravens are favored by 7.5 points. If you wish to wager on the Ravens here, they would need to win by more than seven points to “cover the spread”.
Over/Under (Total) – The total, also known as an over/under bet is simply betting on the total number of points scored in a given contest. The total for Falcons vs. Ravens in Week 16 is currently 37.5. This means you can bet “over” or “under” 37.5 total points scored by both teams in this game. If you think there will be 38 or more points scored, you can bet the over. If you think it will be 37 or fewer, you can bet the under.
Moneyline – Moneylines are a price point that you can wager on as a sports bettor on a team simply winning the game. In NFL football, moneylines vary by sportsbook quite often, and change frequently. The current moneylines for the Falcons and Ravens games are as follows:
Ravens (-303) or Falcons (+290). This means that if you believe the Ravens will win, straight up, you need to wager $303 to win $100, or $30.30 to win $10. If you believe the Falcons will win, you can bet $100 to win $290, or $10 to win $29. Moneylines are a great way to get value if you believe there will be an upset in a contest.
Game Props – These props are interesting, and quite fun for sports bettors in Maryland. You can wager on markets such as what will happen in the first drive of the game, what the exact score will be, first score method, if there will be a safety, how many field goals in a game, and more. These are fun for new sports bettors to enjoy the game in a different light. For Falcons and Ravens, a popular game prop market may be betting on the first score method to be a Ravens field goal with superstar kicker Justin Tucker.
Player Props – The player prop market is the most popular in America for new sports bettors, as it adds an element of fantasy football – in a betting light. Do you think JK Dobbins will rush for more than 58.5 yards? Do you think that Mark Andrews will score a touchdown? All of these are player props that can be wagered on in Maryland.
Parlays – A parlay is a way that Maryland bettors can bet a little and win a lot, but remember they are very hard to win and sportsbooks make the most money on parlays on a percentage basis, compared to other markets. With that said, you could parlay the Ravens and Falcons games with other events such as college football playoffs, the Washington Wizards games, Washington Capitals games, or more.
Single Game Parlays – Last but not least, single game parlays are a new and unique way to wager. Maryland sports bettors will certainly enjoy single game parlays, as you can place a handful of bets that are spreads, totals, props, or more to form a single bet with a large payout. It’s an easy way to wager a little bit with a large payout, but not have to wait on results from multiple games. Like parlays, they are tough to hit but arguably more fun to follow along.
All of these betting types are available at various Maryland sportsbooks, so be sure to take advantage now that you are able to wager online in the Old Line State.
