Baltimore Ravens fans were robbed of what could've been a great season in 2022. The team lost player after player last year; key cogs like Lamar Jackson, J.K. Dobbins, Marcus Peters, Ronnie Stanley, and Marlon Humphrey all missed at least five games.

But all those guys are running it back this year, and Baltimore reloaded in the offseason as always. The Ravens added studs in Kyle Hamilton and Tyler Linderbaum during the NFL Draft and also picked up proven veterans like Marcus Williams and Kyle Fuller.

Armed with a revamped roster, let's break down the Ravens' playoff chances in 2022 using odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

Ravens Playoff Chances 2022

Baltimore is available at -130 to make the postseason. That equates to an implied probability of 56.5% for the Ravens to earn a playoff berth.

Baltimore Ravens Playoff Odds 2022

The Ravens are considered co-favorites to win the AFC North; Baltimore is tied with the Cleveland Browns at +200. They're slightly ahead of the Super Bowl runner-ups in the Cincinnati Bengals (+210), but John Harbaugh's club is firmly ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers (+850).

Ravens Win Total Over/Under 2022

The Ravens' win total has been set at 9.5 with -130 odds on the over and +110 odds on the under.

Ravens Odds to Win AFC 2022

Baltimore is something of a dark-horse contender to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. The Ravens are tied with the Indianapolis Colts for the sixth-best odds to win the AFC outright at +1200. Notably, they're slightly ahead of the Bengals (+1300) here as well.

Ravens Super Bowl Odds 2022

As for the Lombardi Trophy, Lamar Jackson's team is available at +2000 to win it all. That has the Ravens tied for the 10th-best Super Bowl odds alongside the Browns.

Ravens 2022 Season Prediction

There's a pretty clear theme emerging here: Baltimore is a contender, but the AFC North is a gauntlet. Three of the top-12 teams by FanDuel's Super Bowl odds are in the North, and it's not like Pittsburgh is a pushover.

I think the division could come down to a Week 18 road matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. Playing at home gives Cincy the edge in that one, as does Joe Burrow's dominance against this (admittedly banged-up) group last year.

Even if Cincy does manage to squeak by Baltimore in Week 18, the Ravens have a clear path to double-digit wins. They've got an elite quarterback, a revamped roster, and a comparatively easy schedule.

The division is a coin-flip (that might slightly favor Cincinnati), but Baltimore should expect to secure a Wild Card berth – at the very least.

Ravens 2022 Record Prediction: 11-6
