The Baltimore Ravens played their most recent game on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals and beat them quite convincingly. This has upped the Ravens odds of making the playoffs from a solid 90 percent to a more promising 94 percent.
With week 11 to week 17 yet to be played, the Ravens are scheduled to take on the Texans, Rams, 49ers, Bills, Jets, Browns and the Steelers, in exactly that order and with each win they manage in these upcoming games, their chances of playing the playoffs get increasingly better. In fact, if they are able to just beat the Texas next, their chance of making the playoffs will jump from 94% to an almost certain 98%.
The Ravens Odds for Super Bowl 54
Considering their recent performances and form, their odds with some of the top bookmakers have improved substantially as well. After their Week 7 win against the Seattle Seahawks, the bookmakers had them at Super Bowl 54 odds of +1400. In the second half against the Seahawks, the Ravens proved they are a force to reckoned with for the AFC and the Super Bowl when they put up 17 points and conceded just 3, making the Seahawks look average at best.
At the end of week 7, the Ravens odds with the bookies came in as the sixth favorite to win Super Bowl 54. The heavy favorites for Super Bowl 54 are still the New England Patriots with odds of +250, followed by the New Orleans Saints who have odds of +500. Third favorites are Green Bay Packers with odds of +900, at fourth position at the end of week 7 were the Kansas City Chiefs with odds of +1000 and just ahead of the Ravens in fifth position are the San Francisco 49ers with odds of +1000.
At sixth position with odds of +1400, Ravens aren’t exactly the favorites, but if they ever had a great chance to go all the way and win it all – this year could just be their golden opportunity. They have been in good form before and after week 7 when the above odds were published and in all honestly are realistically at a much more favorable position to win than sixth.
After the Ravens, the bookmakers had the Dallas Cowboys at +1600. 8thfavorites are the Los Angeles Rams with odds of +1600 and ninth and tenth favorites are Minnesota Vikings and Indianapolis Colts with odds of +1600 and +2500 respectively.

Where do the Ravens go from here?
The Ravens’ next seven AFC fixtures from week 11 through week 17 are games where the Ravens will be expected to win, the only team with higher odds that they will face in the upcoming games are the 49ers who they will play in week 13. However, apart from the 49ers’ fixtures, it is hard to see the Ravens dropping points in any of the other games and should be able to comfortably secure a Playoff position.
Lamar Jackson has improved markedly throughout the season. The Ravens are built for cold-weather football, they’ve proven that they can beat a challenging opponent in a hostile environment when the Ravens took down the (8-2) Seahawks 30-17 and they’ve spoiled the Patriots perfect season.
Add it all up and the Ravens could provide value to the discerning bettor.
