The Ravens enter 2020 with a win total of 11.5 wins, which is tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the most in the league.

Subtractions: Tight end Hayden Hurst is gone after two seasons where he had 43 receptions, 512 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Seth Roberts is on his third team in three years after 21 receptions and two touchdowns last season. Linebacker Patrick Onwuasor is in New York after four years with the Ravens where he racked up 234 total tackles, 9.5 sacks and six forced fumbles. Linebacker Josh Bynes leaves Baltimore for a second time after 46 total tackles and two interceptions last season.
Additions: Defensive end Derek Wolfe comes over from Denver after eight years with the Broncos. Wolfe has 206 career total tackles, one interception and 33 sacks. The Ravens also added one of the best sack artists in the league in Calais Campbell, who has 88 career sacks and three interceptions. The Ravens were 21st in the league last season with 37 sacks and those two additions to the defensive front should help improve those numbers.
Overall: This is a rather high win total and you’re not leaving yourself much room for error asking for 12 wins if betting the over. With that said, I’m still siding with the over.
The Ravens have an identity offensively and an unstoppable force at quarterback in Lamar Jackson, who is only going to get better as he gains experience. The Ravens offensive line remains intact and this style of offense isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Defensively, the Ravens return a lot of their key players in Earl Thomas, Marcus Peters and Chuck Clark, but they added some much needed pass rushers this offseason to make that side of the ball much more balanced.
There’s not a lot of holes in this Ravens roster and you have to think they’ll be even more motivated with the way last season ended.
The Ravens also have a reasonable schedule, getting the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs at home and only three of the eight teams they play on the road made the playoffs last year.
The Baltimore Ravens will once again be a force in the regular season. Give me the over.
