The Ravens Will Not Stop Covering Preseason Spreads

The Baltimore Ravens played a preseason game yesterday, which means you can assume what happened on the field.
As they've done so often over the past five years, the Ravens got the job done in convincing fashion, covering the five- to six-point spread that was hung here and taking out the ArizonaCardinals, 24-17.
As a reminder, you can see a detailed list of the Ravens preseason accomplishments as it stood prior to this preseason, via Action Network's Evan Abrams, but the Ravens are simply on a ridiculous run.
With Sunday night's victory, Baltimore has now won 22 consecutive preseason games while going 19-2-1 against the spread in that period.
The best team against the spread in that period, however? The Ravens, who are 46-36-3.
In any case, don't tell anyone who's been betting on the Ravens in the preseason that these games aren't meaningful.
This stretch is up there with one of the most dominant runs for a squad in any sport, when accounting for circumstances.
If you had tailed this run from the jump (but also at any point along the way), you'd be a very successful bettor. And if you had taken the moneylines? Well, you'd be undefeated no matter where you joined the streak.
Baltimore will close out its preseason with a home game against the WashingtonCommanders this Saturday, Aug. 27, before taking a week off and starting their regular season on the road against the Jets.
