Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

In two weeks the trio of Lamar Jackson, Hollywood Brown and Mark Andrews have established themselves as the best trio this side of Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Kelce. While the Arizona win was closer than expected that was due to 3 defensive lapses on long passes. The Ravens have to be excited about their ability to upset the Chiefs in Week 3. Their championship odds are 20/1, 4.8% (#7 best). They are a good bet to win the Super Bowl (7.8 percent chance). They are also a good bet to win the AFC at 8/1, 11.1%. Their sim chance is 14.4%. They are projected to win 11 games and go over their pre-season futures line of 8.5. Their playoff chances stand at 88.7% (76.5% to win the division). Their average wins per simulation puts them at #3 in the AFC.
