The opening lines for every game of the 2017 NFL season are out -- which five of the Baltimore Ravens' games are solid chances for wins?


Opening lines according to oddsmakers from online sports book have the Baltimore Ravens favored in eight games out of 15 in the upcoming 2017 NFL season. That said, there are five games that stand out.


(Week 17 is excluded, too, because of high variance caused by potential playoff seeding, quarterbacks sitting out the final week or playing partial games, etc.)

The Ravens -- who are 45/1 to win the Super Bowl and 15/1 to win the AFC -- are most likely win in Week 2. That's when the woeful Cleveland Browns visit Baltimore as 9 1/2-point underdogs. The Ravens are also giving 4 points at Cleveland in Week 15.

Week 6 is also a strong bet for Baltimore, which is a 7-point home favorite to the visiting Chicago Bears. The Ravens are giving 3 to the visiting Lions in Week 3.  Baltimore also gives 3 to the visiting Colts in Week 16.


Week 8 is the best bet for a sleeper win, as the Ravens are giving 3 points to the visiting Dolphins. Same for Week 12, which shows the visiting Texans getting 3.

Though technically a neutral-site game, Week 3 in London against the Jaguars show Baltimore giving 1 and the hook. 


The biggest disparity in Ravens underdog games comes in Week 11. That's where Baltimore is a 7-point underdog on the road at Green Bay. Week 14 is a similar situation, showing Baltimore as a 6-point dog at Pittsburgh.

Want a true toss-up? Look no further than the opener at Cincinnati, with the host Bengals giving just a point to Baltimore.
