How many games will the Baltimore Ravens win in 2020?
How many games will the Baltimore Raven s win in the 2020 NFL season? We look at BetMGM's projected win total and the Over/Under odds, while looking back at the 2019 season and key offseason roster changes.
Baltimore Ravens' 2019 season
The Baltimore Ravens were arguably the best team in the NFL last season, winning 14 games and clinching the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Not only did they have the No. 3 ranked scoring defense in the league, but they finished No. 1 in scoring offense (33.2 points per game) for the first time in franchise history.
Led by MVP QB Lamar Jackson, the Ravens looked unstoppable for most of the year. But they failed to advance past the divisional round as the Tennessee Titans went into Baltimore and upset the Ravens. While the season ultimately led to a disappointing finish, it was a historic year for the franchise as they set a team record for regular-season wins (14).
Baltimore Ravens' 2020 offseason changes
After being gashed on the ground by the Titans, the Ravens beefed up their front seven, adding All-Pro DE Calais Campbell and veteran DT Derek Wolfe. In the first round of the draft, the team added LSU star LB Patrick Queen and added Ohio State LB Malik Harrison a few rounds later.
The offensive side of the ball, the team lost All-Pro OG Marshal Yanda to retirement, but they added two young offensive linemen in the draft in LG Tyre Phillips and RG Ben Bredeson. Baltimore also added RB J.K. Dobbins in the second round and improved their wide receiver corps by selecting WR Devin Duvernay and WR James Proche late in the draft.

Baltimore Ravens' 2020 win total: Best bet
Projected wins: 11.5 / OVER: -105 / UNDER: -115
The Ravens have a tough schedule to start the season, including a Week 2 at Houston, followed by a Week 3 game against Kansas City. However, their schedule is very soft at the end of the year as they will finish the season against six-straight non-playoff teams from a year ago.
If they manage to split those games early in the year, they should have no problem surpassing 11.5 wins, even if the rest of the AFC North improves. Take the Ravens over 11.5 wins with confidence as Baltimore has the coaching staff, quarterback play and defense needed to make a Super Bowl run in the 2020 season.
Exact season wins - bands
0-4 wins: +4000
5-8 wins: +1200
9-12 wins: -250
13-16 wins: +220
Another way to bet on the Ravens' win total is to bet on "exact win bands." If you believe 11 or 12 wins are the most likely outcome for the Ravens this season, you can bet on them to win between nine and 12 games at a payout of -250.
While this doesn't present a ton of value, it is a pretty safe bet as the team has won at least nine games in three-straight seasons. In fact, under head coach John Harbaugh, the team has won at least nine games in nine of his 12 years as the Ravens coach. Don't be afraid to take the 9-12 wins band for the Ravens this season despite the low odds.
Exact wins: Best bet
After winning 14 games during the 2019 season, it seems somewhat unrealistic that they will be able to do that again. However, this is still one of the best teams in the NFL with arguably the deepest roster in the league. Still, the Ravens should easily hit double-digit wins this season and exactly 12 wins has a payout of +250.
