The Ravens are the Super Bowl favorites entering the NFL playoffs for good reason.
Baltimore finished the season with 12 straight wins, including a victory Sunday against Pittsburgh in which the Ravens played their second-stringers. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to claim MVP honors. Twelve of their players were named to the Pro Bowl.
Baltimore’s status as Vegas’ first choice means longer odds for other strong Super Bowl contenders such as the Chiefs, 49ers and Saints. It’s an opportunity for bettors dubious of the Ravens to put their money where their mouths are and potentially reap a substantial reward.

Who’s the favorite to win Super Bowl 54?
Baltimore is considered the favorite, with Caesars giving the Ravens a +225 opening line. A $100 bet would net a $225 return should the team win the Super Bowl.
The Ravens, who went 14-2, get a first-round bye and will host the lowest remaining seed in the divisional round. They would also host the AFC championship game should they advance that far.
