Ravens currently favored to win only six games in 2016

If the oddsmakers are correct, the Baltimore Ravens are due for another long season.

The Ravens are favored to win only six games in 2016, according to CG Technology. That's a major disparity with AFC North rivals Pittsburgh Steelers (13 wins) and Cincinnati Bengals (11).

Baltimore is favored in its first two games, home against Buffalo and at Cleveland, and its Week 3 game at Jacksonville is a pick 'em. That means the Ravens are underdogs in eight of their next 12 games (there are no lines for the Week 17 games).

The most surprising part is the Ravens are underdogs for three home games: Pittsburgh (-2.5), Cincinnati (-1.5) and Philadelphia (-3). Baltimore is 48-16 at home under coach John Harbaugh, which is the third-best mark in the NFL since 2008.

The largest point spread in favor of the Ravens is their Week 10 home game against Cleveland (+8.5). The Ravens are the biggest underdogs in their Week 14 game at New England (-9).
