Ravens enter offseason as a popular pick to win Super Bowl LV despite flopping as favorites

The Kansas City Chiefs are the early favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champions next year, but the Ravens aren’t far behind.

After rallying Sunday night to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, in Super Bowl LIV, the Chiefs opened as 6-1 betting favorites to win Super Bowl LV at Caesars Sportsbook. The Ravens are just behind, at 7-1.

Led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, the Ravens entered the postseason as Super Bowl favorites and on a collision course with second-seeded Kansas City. But a stunning mid-January loss to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC divisional round ended a 12-game winning streak and denied the franchise a shot at its third Lombardi Trophy.

The Ravens will host the Chiefs, who have won the past two meetings at Arrowhead Stadium, in a matchup next season pitting the NFL’s reigning Most Valuable Player, Jackson, against the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Patrick Mahomes, himself the 2018 NFL MVP. The league’s full schedule is expected to be released in April.
