Top 2022 Super Bowl predictions
After simulating the season 10,000 times, the model likes the value of the Baltimore Ravens, even though they are +1400 underdogs to win the Super Bowl. Lamar Jackson won his first NFL playoff game in 2020 and was at the forefront of the league’s best rushing offense. Baltimore led the NFL with 191.9 rushing yards per game and 24 rushing scores. Jackson became the first quarterback in league history to rush for 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons, but in order for the Ravens to have a chance to make a deep postseason run, they needed to upgrade the passing game.
Baltimore’s 171.2 passing yards per game ranked last in the league in 2020. No Ravens receiver reached the 60-yard reception mark. so the Ravens acquired former Chiefs wideout and Super Bowl LIV hero Sammy Watkins. They also focused on wideout in the 2021 NFL Draft, spending two significant draft choices on the position, including Minnesota’s Rashod Bateman in the first round.
Second-year running back J.K. Dobbins could be headed for a breakout campaign in 2021 and the Ravens’ defense ranked second in the AFC last year. If the passing game improves as hoped, Baltimore could reach the Super Bowl for the first time in nine years.
