Big things were expected of Brian Billick’s Ravens, especially after the team went a franchise-best 13-3 last season. Gamblers that have looked to the Ravens this season for NFL football betting wins have been bitterly disappointed.
NFL betting on the Ravens has seen Baltimore go an NFL worst 1-8 against the NFL betting pointspread through the first nine weeks of the season. Gamblers that look at NFL betting lines know that head coach Brian Billick has been openly criticized by his players for poor play calling and veteran quarterback Steve McNair looks like he belongs in a retirement home.
NFL betting on the Ravens may have reached a new low as Cincinnati, with one of the worst defenses in the league held the Ravens to seven points.
McNair didn’t lead one scoring drive the entire game. He lost two fumbles and also threw an interception. The sad part for anyone that gets involved in NFL betting on the Ravens is that the team now has to go with quarterback Kyle Boller who has proven he can’t win either.
The question for gamblers that look at NFL betting lines on Baltimore is whether or not the team is worthy of a wager. Billick seems to have lost his way as a head coach; the team has no quarterback, and no direction. NFL betting gamblers should be aware that the Ravens have just 138 points through their first nine games, an average of 15.3 per contest, and are on pace to put up only 245 on the year. Experts that follow NFL football betting know that would be the lowest total ever for a Baltimore team. What is confusing to many NFL betting gamblers is the huge turnaround. Last year the Ravens scored 353 points, the third most in team history and were a great success against the NFL betting pointspread. In just one season the team has gone straight downhill and constantly frustrated NFL betting gamblers.
NFL football betting gamblers may want to look at taking Baltimore games under the total the remainder of the season. Boller has not proven he can lead the offense any better than McNair and Billick looks like he will not be able to turn things around this season. The under may be the way to go in Ravens’ games against the NFL football betting pointspread.
