BALTIMORE – The Baltimore Ravens, also known as the best bet for preseason football in the 2021-2022 NFL season, make their long-awaited return to the field on Saturday against the New Orleans Saints. Raven’s head coach John Harbaugh hasn’t lost a game in the preseason since 2015 and isn’t expected to see that streak end.

John Harbaugh’s Preseason Excellence

There’s a fair case to make that John Harbaugh is one of the greatest NFL coaches of all time, at least when it comes to the preseason. While many coaches use the preseason for a variety of reasons, Harbaugh has taken these games seriously enough to compile a 37-12 record in his career. Regulated sports betting sites expect the Baltimore Ravens to see continued success for the preseason.

Ravens vs Saints Moneyline Odds

  • Baltimore Ravens -135
  • New Orleans Saints +115

The Ravens have won 17 preseason games in a row and with NFL sportsbooks are favoring them in Saturday’s tilt it seems as if backing Baltimore is the best betting decision for the game.

Sean Payton, head coach of the New Orleans Saints, hasn’t been too concerned with the preseason as he has a 28-30 record in his career. More so, he’s gone 7-12 over the last five seasons. With Payton’s struggles and Harbaugh’s preference to win, it seems Baltimore is truly the only side to take.

Does Harbaugh’s Team Cover As Well?

In short, yes. Harbaugh’s teams are 33-14-1 ATS in the preseason in his career. There is concern that the Saints could send out Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill for an extended period of time as the two battle for the starting spot in the regular season, but it’s unlikely a coach as seasoned as Payton would put his players at risk. Regardless, betting the Ravens to cover could prove to be beneficial.

Saints vs Ravens Spread Odds

  • Baltimore Ravens -2.5 -110
  • New Orleans Saints +2.5 -110

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Ravens should be able to handle business on the field for the win, at least that’s what their history would say.
