The Baltimore Ravens have found considerable success over the last few years and they remain one of the best teams in the entire NFL.

Since the arrival of Lamar Jackson, they have been perennial contenders competing with the NFL’s best in the postseason. And even before that, the Joe Flacco years were mostly kind to Baltimore.

For that reason, it should come as no surprise that the Ravens remain high on the list of betting favorites to succeed in 2021.

According to WynnBET’s latest odds, the Ravens are the favorites to win the AFC North this season with current odds of +115 to claim the division crown.

Just behind them are the Cleveland Browns who have +140 odds, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers with +400 odds, and the Cincinnati Bengals with +2000 odds.

The Ravens odds to win the AFC North are reasonable and correct

The Ravens have won their division six times in franchise history with two of those times coming in the last three years. After winning the AFC North in both 2018 and 2019, Baltimore fell just short in 2020 finishing second behind the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The current betting odds expect the Ravens to win their third division title in four years, and given the talent on their roster, that seems like a pretty good bet.

Baltimore has one of the best defenses in the NFL with the deepest secondary, a veteran-heavy defensive line, and a young but promising linebacker corps.

And on offense, everything revolves around Lamar Jackson.

The 2019 MVP had a “down” year last season following his MVP campaign but he remains one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL.

Throw in a hopefully improved offensive line and there’s a reason the Ravens are considered to be as good as they are.

WynnBET also has their current over/under win total set at 11 wins. That’s one of the highest figures in the NFL, but the Ravens are a pretty good bet to reach that figure.

They’ve won at least 10 games in each of the last three seasons including a whopping 14 in 2019. Remember, that 11-win mark is a little easier to reach this season with the addition of a 17th game.

The Browns are a fantastic team with one of the most complete rosters in the NFL, but the Ravens likely get the edge due to quarterback play and their stacked secondary.
