Seattle signed Russell Wilson to a megabuck contract this past offseason that is looking like a brilliant investment. Indeed, the Seahawks have joined the 49ers as the top threat to win the NFC West. Baltimore made a painful decision to replace veteran starting quarterback Joe Flacco with Lamar Jackson. Owing to this decision is their return as a top contender. The Ravens have the Pro Football betting advantage of playing in the dreadful AFC North. But Jackson has been the difference-maker for a resurgent franchise and once embattled head coach John Harbaugh. Specifically, Jackson saved Harbaugh’s job.
