Ravens favored in every game this season

Point spreads are available for the entire 2020 NFL season, and the Ravens have the unique distinction of being favored in every game.

Caesars Sportsbook lists the Ravens as favored in each game, with the two closest games being 2.5-point spreads at home against the Chiefs on September 28 and at the Eagles on October 18.

“We have the Ravens and Chiefs pretty much dead even on a neutral field,” Caesars Sportsbook director of trading Jeff Davis told ESPN.

The Ravens had the best record in the NFL last year, and their 2020 opponents cumulatively had the worst 2019 record of any team’s opponents. The Ravens also have a favorable travel schedule, needing to travel just 6,310 miles this season, the fewest miles any team has traveled for its away games in four years.

None of this means the Ravens are going 16-0 this season, or even that they’re likely to match their 14 wins from last season. But on a game-by-game basis, no team’s schedule lays out more favorably than Baltimore’s.

    18-0

    That would leave them one win short of a Super Bowl win, if a full season is played.

  2. Poor team doesn’t realize the league has already got that QB figured out. They’ll be lucky to win 1/2 of them. Remember RG3?

  3. Covid 19 is the only one going undefeated.

    Nice try pal it’s currently batting well under .500

  4. I’m actually being serious when I say this: they will lose a game to Cleveland this year.

  5. Of course they are. It’s simple; they are a top echelon team and the tougher games are at home. We will finally get the Chiefs and NE might actually have a chance this time.

  6. “Poor team doesn’t realize the league has already got that QB figured out.”

    The Ravens won 12 straight before losing in the playoffs. Over that time span, they beat their opponents by an average of 16 points.

    In what Bizarro World is that type of dominance called “got that QB figured out”?

    Personally, I don’t like watching running quarterbacks, but the performance that Jackson put on last year was record-setting. Sure, the other teams may eventually “figure him out”….or not.

    But will lose in the playoffs as the limitations of LJ will be exposed once again
    __________________________

    Yeah, 500 yards of limitations, just like Brady’s loss to Nick Foles.

    Well, there is the fact LJ for all his accolades and great TD/INT ratio obviously benefits from their defence and running game, which gives him incredible play-action opportunities in the red-zone and thus the TD passes. He had 8 games where he threw for under 200 yards last year. If you can take away the running game and make him hang around the pocket, he’s just not very accurate downfield. Now, that could change if he grows. But history shows QBs that like to run out of trouble and rely heavily on play-action eventually get exposed. Too early to tell if he was truly exposed but he was downright awful against the Titans in that playoff game.

  9. Lamar drops back checks his first read, and if that guy is covered he runs… not a recipe for success in the playoffs, and his playoff record proves that

    Yup it’s easy to figure out how to stop Lamar. Just find a couple of defensive backs that are faster and quicker than Lamar, and physical enough to play in a NFL defense.

    Good luck with that.

    Defensive coordinators are smarter then any running qb

    Ok, so exactly what DC has stopped Lamar? Wade Phillips? Ahahahaha.

  12. So much hate for the NFL MVP. You keep criticizing Lamar’s passing. Do you actually watch the games? He was the #2 rated passer from the pocket last year and #1 in passing TDs. How can you do that, if you can’t throw? Just because he can run, you discount his passing.
    He lost a playoff game last year. So, what? Not the first QB to do so. This dude is hungry; watch out league.

  13. Ravens are a good team, but IMO Lamar is limited as a passer. We’ll see after an off-season of tape to watch a gimmicky offense, a decent division and a 1rst place sched. Steelers should be very good too.

  14. The Ravens are not even the best team in Maryland. That team is in Landover. The Redskins have a quarterback who can actually pass the ball and the Skins would clean the Ravens clock. Just sayin’ not hatin’.

  15. Ravens and Chiefs should be the AFC representative in the Super Bowl but, neither one is going undefeated.

    I could see either one getting bounced in a divisional playoff game by a (buffalo,Tennessee,Indy or Pitt) team that is tough defensive and runs a ball controlled offense. Also add possible injuries or playoff weather. We all know any team can get upset

  16. I like Lamar a lot. He’s Mike Vick 2.0. Only thing that annoys me about him is him whining and pouting like a baby after a bad play hopefully he gets that under control

  17. Breaking – football team uses strengths to advantage against opponents’ weaknesses.

  18. Every year they pretty much carry over the previous years standings. Last year the Browns and Steelers were predicted to finish ahead of the Ravens. The Bills were supposed to be terrible, the Chargers had a shot at the Super Bowl, the Bears were supposed to be good, the Cowboys were supposed to be great, the Rams were also supposed to be great, the 49ers were supposed to be average. That being said, I think it bodes well for the Ravens that they lost in the Championship game, not so much that Lamar is on the Madden cover though…

  19. This is a important story I think they should present the Super Bowel trophy at the start of the season and then tell all the teams to go home

  20. Didn’t they lose to the Browns last season? I think they split again this season.

  21. Ask the Pats how it feels to be favored in every game and then lose in the Super Bowl. Besides, it appears doubtful that there will be any games in 2020 unless someone comes up with a cure for COVID-19.

  22. Nit2al he man they had a whole offseason to work on this guy I know they relax the holding calls when these guys run but they gonna send him home for the year if he keeps running and the passing numbers are skewed because he only passes to wide open receives because if they ain’t wide open he tucks and runs

  23. Yeah, didnt say they will win every game. Said they are favored. You know, Gambling?

    I think most of you are confusing the two.

  24. Lamar/Baltimore are 0-2 versus Chiefs the last 2 years. We’ll make it 0-3 this year. Mahomes will beat them again

  25. All the keyboard warriors who have Lamar figured out. Yet a DC couldn’t do it.

    Don’t you think Roman and Harbaugh will adapt to their weaknesses? It won’t be the same recipe we saw last year. It won’t be as revolutionary, but won’t be the same.
