Only a few weeks before the start of the 2021 NFL season, the Baltimore Ravens have entered into a deal with DraftKings that names that company as their Official Daily Fantasy Sports Partner, as well as an Official Sports Betting and Free-to-Play Partner.

This is the fifth NFL team to enter a partnership with DraftKings, and the first partner for the sportsbook in the state of Maryland. A leading daily fantasy sports and sportsbook in North America, DraftKings is an Official Sports Betting Partner of the NFL, and the Exclusive Official Daily Fantasy Partner of the NFL.

As part of the collaboration between DraftKings and the Ravens, who have made the playoffs in each of the previous three seasons, DraftKings will be the title sponsor of Baltimore WBAL-1090 News Radio’s Gameday Insider pregame show. They will also be a presenting sponsor of the Ravens Wired video online content series.

In addition, DraftKings will provide exclusive content to The Lounge, the Ravens’ weekly team podcast. The gaming company will also be afforded homepage takeovers of the Ravens’ official website at various times throughout the season. Also, fans will see DraftKings branding at M&T Bank Stadium in the upcoming season, including surrounding a branded VIP suite. The team and DraftKings will also offer exclusive gameday experiences, including away game trips, autographed merchandise, a Punt, Pass & Kick event exclusively available to DraftKings customers through in-season daily fantasy and sportsbook contests, and a DraftKings branded NFL Official Free-to-Play game.

Ravens vs Raiders, Week One Of 2021 NFL Season

Baltimore will travel to Las Vegas to face the Raiders in Week #1 of the season. The Ravens have been eliminated in the playoffs in each of the last three seasons in a disappointing fashion, unable to reach the conference finals. John Harbaugh enters his 14th season as head coach, having suffered only one losing season with the Ravens. The team has recently reloaded with dynamic quarterback Lamar Jackson, who can beat teams with his arm and his feet. But it’s bene nearly a decade since the Ravens have played in the Super Bowl, and until Jackson can take them to at least the precipice of that marquee game, he will not punch his ticket into the elite circle of QB’s in the league.

As Travis Pulver has noted here on Gaming Today, the Ravens’ success in 2021 is tied to their revamped offensive line. The team will need to protect Jackson to give him more time to seek and find a receiving corps that still needs to prove themselves.

The Raiders are listed as +200 underdogs for their week one matchup with the Ravens. Here are the current odds from DraftKings for the game that will be played in primetime on the opening Sunday of the season:

Point Spread

  • Ravens -4.5: -115
  • Raiders + 4.5: +105

Totals

  • Over 51: -110
  • Under 51: -110

Moneyline

  • Ravens: -250
  • Raiders: +200
