Steve Davis: Not Everyone Sold on the Ravens
I got an email from a Vegas bookmaker named RJ Bell. He sent me the latest odds on the Ravens, and I was “un”pleasantly surprised.
He had the Ravens as his 17th choice to win the Super Bowl at 50:1.
To put that in perspective, he had them at the same odds as Carolina and Detroit. Not only, but here are some of the teams that he thinks have a better chance of winning the Super Bowl.
The Eagles, who have a new coach.
The Cowboys, who have the same coach and quarterback.
The Redskins, who have an injured quarterback.
Not only that, but Bell has the Ravens over-under on wins at 8.5. If I was a betting man, and I was looking to get some action on the Ravens, I like the Ravens on the over and I like 50:1. He is giving significantly better odds for a pro-Ravens bettor than many other handicappers that I have seen.
