The Baltimore Ravens are coming off an NFL season that surprised everyone. The team finally moved on from veteran quarterback Joe Flacco and went all-in with Lamar Jackson and the team hasn’t looked back as they have arguably the most exciting player in the NFL as the new face of their franchise.
With Jackson coming off an MVP season and potentially just getting started in terms of his potential, the Ravens will be a hot ticket in 2020 and apparently oddsmakers are fully aware of that fact. According to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, the Ravens are favored to win all 16 of their regular-season games in 2020.
Analytics and oddsmakers have the Ravens favored to win all 16 games this season. Baltimore looks just as strong or even better than last season, when it won its last 12 regular-season games to finish 14-2. The Ravens return all but one starter from the NFL’s highest-scoring offense and improved the front seven, the weakest part of the defense.
Although going undefeated during the regular season isn’t a feat that is done often in the NFL, the Ravens getting this kind of love ahead of the 2020 campaign isn’t all that surprising as they are a team that is as talented as they come in the league today. Jackson and company electrified crowds on a weekly basis until a disappointing showing in the playoffs against the Tennessee Titans.
It’ll be interesting to see if the Ravens can pull off such a feat with Jackson showing whether his MVP season was a fluke or not.
