Over the last two years, the John Harbaugh led Ravens made the playoffs as a wildcard and have won three postseason games. Now with some key roster additions, the sky is the
limit for the overwhelming favorites in the AFC North. Once know for just a great defense, the Ravens could have an offense almost as impressive. Quarterback Joe Flacco was very impressive in his sophomore campaign and now has an All-Pro caliber receiver to throw to in Anquan Boldin. Running back Ray Rice earned the starting position and immediately made an impact becoming an elite NFL back. Assorted Baltimore Ravens Odds

Key Ravens Betting Trend:
Over the last two seasons, BALTIMORE is 9-1 ATS (+7.9 Units) vs. teams with a
losing record. The Average Score was BALTIMORE 31.1, OPPONENT 9.6

The Ravens seem to have this wild-card thing figured out. While Pittsburgh
and Cincinnati finished atop the AFC North in 2008 and '09, respectively,
Baltimore gained entry to the postseason each season and has a combined
three victories. Could the Ravens' 33-14 dismantling of the Patriots in
Foxboro last January be a sign of things to come? With unflappable QB Joe
Flacco entering his third season, along with head coach John Harbaugh, this
team isn't too far away. The front office made a bold offseason move,
acquiring WR Anquan Boldin (Cardinals), to help achieve the goal of reaching
the next step. Baltimore's running game has ranked among the NFL's best five
in consecutive seasons and elusive Ray Rice (1,339 yards, seven touchdowns)
and powerful Willis McGahee (544, 12) comprise one of the best 1-2 punches
in the business. Flacco, a year after becoming the first NFL rookie
signal-caller to win two playoff games, continued progress with 3,613 yards
passing, and 21-12 TD-Int ratio. The addition of Boldin helps his cause and
allows coordinator Cam Cameron to go deeper in the playbook. The front line
is as solid as they come. Ray Lewis & Co. don't need an introduction, but the
front office felt a little reinforcement for a unit, aging in certain spots,
couldn't hurt. Sergio Kindle (2a-Texas) joins a LB corps that already
included Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Jarret Johnson, and beefy Terrence Cody
(2b-Alabama) will fit right in with Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata in the
trenches. In the secondary, when Ed Reed's healthy and doing his thing, it's
hard to find a better safety in the business. While a wild-card spot would be
nothing to complain about, the Ravens have bigger goals in mind. As long as
the key parts stay healthy, especially on defense, the AFC North is theirs
for the taking. Another double-digit win season and more January action
looks like a safe bet. Regular Season Wins Prop: Over/Under 10

Double-digit wins seem like a safe bet for this team. The real key to how
this team has gotten to the upper levels of the NFL has been the offense.
Baltimore is not a one-trick pony anymore, and has a potent offense to match
its intimidating defense. This is a true Super Bowl contender. It would be considered a disappointing season if they didn’t hit double-digit wins. Take the OVER.
