Cincinnati Bengals

NFL Team Cincinnati BengalsThe Bengals’ four-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt after a last-second field goal loss. Despite the setback, Joe Burrow’s arm has been on fire, with 2,208 passing yards to date, and he’s been especially sharp lately, with over 340 yards in his recent outings. The Bengals’ workhorse, Joe Mixon, has been shouldering the ground game, while Ja’Marr Chase’s receiving prowess puts him seventh in the league for receiving yards. Tyler Boyd has also been a reliable target for Burrow. With a ranking of 20th in scoring offense and a defense that’s 16th in points allowed, the Bengals boast a strong turnover differential, which could be a pivotal factor in this matchup.


Baltimore Ravens 

NFL Team Baltimore RavensOn the Raven’s side, their winning streak was snapped in a similar fashion to the Bengals, with a late-game defeat. Lamar Jackson remains a dual-threat leader, despite the team’s struggle to ignite the ground game against the Browns. Gus Edwards is edging Jackson in rushing yards, and Zay Flowers has emerged as a promising receiver. Baltimore’s offense ranks 5th in scoring, while their defense is the stingiest in the League, allowing only 15.7 points per game. With players like Roquan Smith leading in tackles and Geno Stone grabbing interceptions, the Ravens’ defense is formidable.



For bettors, this game presents an opportunity to weigh the importance of turnover differential and offensive momentum. The Bengals, tied for the best differential in the league, may have an edge in a game that’s expected to be tight. However, the Ravens’ stout defense and home-field advantage cannot be overlooked. In a prime-time game that’s likely to be decided by the finest of margins, the suggestion is to take the points with Cincinnati. The Bengals are primed to seek revenge for their early-season loss, and with Burrow’s recent form, they’re well-positioned to cover the spread.
