Do I let it ride or grab the cash?
As soon as you lay money on a team, you're a betting man and not a fan at that point. You can not hedge and risk the Ravens losing the game and your bet (double whammy). Or you can win money regardless of the outcome. So even if the Ravens lose, you get something in return. This is what I like to call happiness insurance. Hedge the bet
