Ravens' 2014 Win Total Odds

Baltimore Ravens 2014 NFL odds Super Bowl

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – One NFL team that could be in store for a rebound this year is the Ravens, who struggled in 2013 after winning the Super Bowl just two seasons ago.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Ravens’ over/under total for number of wins in 2014 is currently sitting at 8.5. They’re also 40/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl, 18/1 to win their conference, and 5/2 to win the AFC North.

The Ravens didn’t add much in free agency although Owen Daniels should start in two-tight end sets this year and Steve Smith will play opposite Torrey Smith at receiver. Free agent pickup Darian Stewart could start, as good guard Will Rackley, while running back Justin Forsett will serve as depth behind Ray Rice on offense.

General manager Ozzie Newsome went defense-heavy during the draft, selecting middle linebacker C.J. Mosley out of Alabama in the first round and Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan in the second. Jernigan’s FSU teammate Terrence Brooks was the Ravens’ third-round selection, while Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore was the team’s first pick on the offensive side of the ball in the fourth round.

The Ravens should be right around 8 or 9 wins for 2014, although I mean more toward the over. This is a good team that was forced to overhaul last offseason due to the departures of Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Dannell Ellerbe and Anquan Boldin. Joe Flacco’s contract extension also forced Newsome to be tighter with his money and thus, the Ravens struggled to gain traction throughout the year. The Rice news this offseason proved to be a distraction and he could still be suspended for part of the 2014 season. But having said that, I like the overall talent on this roster and I would bet the over 8.5.
