The Baltimore Ravens put together a signature win in Week 7 -- blowing out the Detroit Lions 38-6 -- to stay in first place in the AFC North ahead of the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Beating the 5-1 Lions was huge for Baltimore as the offense looked to be the dangerous one we expected and the preseason under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, and the team still ranks No. 1 in the NFL in yards per play allowed on defense.
With multiple road division wins under their belt, the Ravens are trending towards being an odds on favorite in this division, even though they currently have just a one-game lead. Is now the time to jump on board?

Latest odds to win the AFC North
At +115, odds, the Ravens have an implied probability of 46.51 percent to win the division this season. The team has already picked up some crucial wins over AFC North opponents, so it's not surprising that they're favored at this point in the season.
Why Ravens are worth a bet to win the AFC North
There is a hole in just about every single AFC North team, and that makes the Ravens a great bet at +115 to win this division, especially since they're already 5-2.
The Browns have some serous quarterback issues, as Deshaun Watson has a shoulder injury and has been ineffective at points this season. Can P.J. Walker really get this team to a division title if Watson can't play? I'm not sold on that.
The Steelers do have a win over the Ravens, but their offense is still 26th in yards per play and 29th in points scored this season. Kenny Pickett is easily the worst quarterback in the division.
The Bengals are currently in last place, and Joe Burrow (calf) has been banged up this season. Cincy has a tough schedule the rest of the way as well, as Tankathon ranks them No. 1 in schedule strength the rest of the season.
Baltimore only has home games remaining against the division, picking up road wins over Cleveland and Cincy before losing to the Steelers on the road.
While the team has a bunch of tough games left (fifth in schedule strength), it showed it can blow out a good team in Detroit in Week 7. If the Ravens can handle business at home against the rest of the division, they have an inside track to the AFC North title.
