NFL Betting: Can the Baltimore Ravens Repeat in Super Bowl XLVIII?

Baltimore Ravens Repeat in Super Bowl XLVIIIThe football betting experts have been dreading the 2014 Super Bowl almost as if it were some kind of disease for the NFL. The 2014 Super Bowl will be played in MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. No, the league is not moving the date of the Super Bowl to a warmer month. Super Bowl XLVIII will be played in the freezing cold of a New York-New Jersey winter and everyone is wondering if the Baltimore Ravens will be there to defend its title.

The first thing that all of the online sports book experts look for in a defending Super Bowl champion is who is leaving the team and who is staying. Is the Ravens’ defense going to suffer from the loss of Ray Lewis? Perhaps 10 years ago the retirement of Lewis would have had a tremendous impact on the Ravens. But in Super Bowl XLVII, a slower Ray Lewis showed that the game has passed him by and his retirement was well-planned. With the Ravens getting back some of its injured defensive players for next season, the Baltimore defense could be better than it was in 2012-13.

 

Every price per head sports expert in the world has fought the inclination to recognize Joe Flacco as an elite quarterback. As Trent Dilfer and Eli Manning will tell you, winning a Super Bowl does not make you elite. But having one of the best playoff records of any quarterback in the history of the NFL can certainly push a guy in the elite direction. Joe Flacco will be getting a sizeable contract from the Ravens this offseason and he seems cool and collected enough to earn that money for the next several years.

The rest of the Ravens’ offense looks to be intact for next year. Little running back Ray Rice showed just how powerful he is by consistently carrying several 49ers’ tacklers three and four yards before he would go down. The 5dimes experts know the value of Ray Rice and wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the Baltimore Ravens, and so does Ravens’ management. The front office will keep this collection of players together for as long as it can to see how many more Lombardi Trophies this group can win.

Is this where the New England Patriots pass the torch to the Baltimore Ravens? Hardly. Bill Belichick and crew are hard at work trying to figure out ways to undermine the Baltimore offense and get into yet another Super Bowl. What NFL fans have is the makings of a great three-way rivalry between the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens. As long as Peyton Manning is in Denver and Tom Brady is in New England, this rivalry will blaze on for many years.

The Baltimore Ravens has the talent to win Super Bowl XLVIII, but sometimes talent is not all it takes. The world will see if the Ravens is building a dynasty, or if it was just a one-shot wonder in New Orleans.
