How To Bet On The Baltimore Ravens

Maryland sports betting is here, and football fans can now bet on the Baltimore Ravens at a number of retail sportsbooks in the state. Additionally, mobile betting launched on Nov. 23, meaning residents can bet before the 2023 Super Bowl. The launch of mobile betting will make it much easier for fans of the Ravens to bet on their favorite team from the comfort of their own homes. But for now, retail betting will have to do.

Maryland Online Sportsbooks

Maryland online sports betting apps are on the way. Right now, the hope is that mobile betting apps launch in Maryland in the second half of 2022. At full capacity, there could be as many as 60 mobile sports betting licenses approved in Maryland. The following online sportsbooks are expected to be among the first to launch in the Old Line State:

  • BetMGM: As one of the most well-known and trusted brands in the online sports betting industry, it would not be shocking if the BetMGM Sportsbook app was one of the first to lauch in Maryland. With competitive odds and fantastic promotions for new and existing users, Maryland bettors will be happy to have BetMGM launch in-state. BetMGM was also the first sportsbook in Maryland to announce a partnership with the Baltimore Ravens
  • DraftKings: Thanks to its time as a daily fantasy operator, DraftKings is one of the most recognizable names in the US online sports betting industry. With the DFS platform already live in Maryland, it would be surprising if DraftKings was not among the first to launch in the state.
  • FanDuel: Like the other daily fantasy giant, FanDuel benefits from name recognition much like DraftKings does. With a great app, competitive odds, and user-friendly bonuses and promotions, FanDuel is bound to be a big hit among bettors in Maryland.

How NFL Betting Odds Are Calculated

Oddsmakers have their own way of calculating odds. Still, all will employ some form of advanced mathematics, algorithms, whatever data they can get their hands on, and their experience to come up with the opening odds for a market.

But once they post the opening odds, they may change due to any relevant new information (i.e., injuries, player availability, etc.) and how the public bets. If a high percentage of bets are taken on one side of a game, sportsbooks will shift the odds to give the other side of the bet more value.

That way, no matter what the outcome of the game is, the sportsbook is protected.

The Ravens’ season started with a Week 1 matchup against the New York Jets on September 11. The chart below shows the odds for the game before the season started on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point SpreadMoneylineTotal (over/under)
Baltimore Ravens-5.5 (-110)-245Over 45 (-110)
New York Jets+5.5 (-110)+205Under 45 (-110)

If you bet on the Ravens to win and cover the 5.5-point spread, you would need to wager $110 in order to win $100. Keep in mind that odds and lines like these are subject to change all the way up until kickoff.

What Kinds Of Bets Can Be Placed On The Baltimore Ravens

Fans of the Baltimore Ravens have several ways to put money down on their favorite team. Popular futures bets include regular season win totals, winning the AFC North, winning the AFC, or winning the Super Bowl. However, the most common types of NFL wagers involve betting on individual games.

The betting line will consist of three different types of wagers:

  • Point Spread: A number that is either negative (for favorites) or positive (for underdogs). Favorites must not only win the game, but win by a specific number of points in order to cover the spread. Underdogs can either win the game outright, or lose by a specific number of points. 
  • Moneyline: Bettors interested in picking the winners straight up will want to bet the moneyline. Odds for favorites have shorter odds, while bets on underdogs have longer odds, which typically results in higher payouts.
  • Total (over/under): These types of bets refer to the total number of points scored in an NFL game. Bettors can bet on the total score to either go over or stay under the listed total.

How To Place Prop Bets On Baltimore Ravens

Prop bets, also known as proposition bets, are fun ways to get in on the NFL betting action. These types of wagers are typically offered as game props or player props. Game props can include which team you think will score first, or whether or not a team will reach their listed total number of points in a game. Popular player props include passing yards for QBs, rushing yards for RBs, receiving yards for WRs, and which player will score a touchdown.

Much like NFL game and futures bets, odds and lines for prop bets can vary between sportsbooks. For example, Lamar Jackson’s passing yard total for a given game could be listed at 205.5 on DraftKings, and 195.5 on FanDuel. In this scenario, if you are wanting to bet on the over, it would be advantageous to use FanDuel, as a lower total is listed.

Always be sure to shop around for the best odds before locking in your wagers.

How To Bet On The Super Bowl In Maryland

Fans can bet on the Super Bowl in one of two ways. They can place a futures bet or wait until the betting line is posted and then bet the point spread, moneyline, or total.

You can place futures bets from when the odds get posted up until a given date and time. Odds for Super Bowl LVII are available now on multiple sportsbooks.

Some sportsbooks will have odds listed for various futures related to the Super Bowl, like what division, conference, or state the winner will come from. Prop bets for the Super Bowl will concern obscure things like the length of the National Anthem, the result of the coin flip, and various player performance marks (among other things).

Bettors in Maryland can put money down on the Super Bowl even if the Ravens are not playing in the game.

Baltimore Ravens Partnerships

The Baltimore Ravens wasted no time establishing a partnership with BetMGM doing so less than 24 hours after the law legalizing sports betting was signed into law. Under the terms of the partnership, BetMGM signage will be visible in M&T Bank Stadium and on Ravens digital and social media outlets.

The team and BetMGM will also collaborate on co-branded promotional campaigns. Also, the BetMGM app will feature Ravens promotions and marketing campaigns.
