Why Bet on the Baltimore Ravens?

Baltimore’s biggest issue is that they must rely on Tyler Huntley. The Raven’s dual-threat starter on Sunday is one of the top backups in the league.

But Huntley isn’t on Lamar Jackson’s level. To make things more difficult for Baltimore’s offense, the top wideout is Sammy Watkins, who earlier in the year wore a Green Bay uniform. The offense will struggle big time to move the football.

Baltimore’s defense got much better after the Ravens traded for former Georgia Bulldog and Chicago Bear linebacker Roquan Smith.

Since Roquan put on a Baltimore kit, the Ravens have yielded 14 points or less in 5-of-8 games. Smith is the leader of one of the best defenses in the league.

Why Bet on the Cincinnati Bengals?

Joe Burrow has posted NFL MVP stats. Burrow has thrown for 4,260 yards, 34 TDs and 12 picks. More importantly, he’s the leader of one of the top offenses in the NFL.

Joe Cool gets to toss the pigskin to Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, and Ja’Marr Chase. The Bengals’ Big 3 dominates opposing secondaries. When Joe Mixon is playing well, it’s impossible to keep the Bengals from scoring points.

Although defensive end star Sam Hubbard remains out with a calf injury, the Bengals’ defense has played great football in recent weeks.

Kansas City scored 24 points, 5 below their average in a Cincy victory. Tom Brady and Tampa scored 23 in a Bengals’ win. Deshaun Watson and Cleveland scored 10 in a loss to Cincinnati.

Ravens vs. Bengals Expert Betting Predictions

This is one of those no-brainer games except with a caveat. The no-brainer side looks at stats, the starting quarterbacks, and trends and decides the Bengals are a lock.

But it’s difficult to know if Cincinnati players will be in the right frame of mind to play this game. The Bengals were a part of the incident on Monday night were Damar Hamlin’s heart stopped.

If Cincinnati doesn’t have their head right, the Ravens could pull off the upset against the spread. What’s the conclusion? Is Cincinnati mentally prepared for this game?

Damar Hamlin appears to be okay. On Thursday, he wrote on a piece of paper asking who won the Monday night game. The good news should allow Bengals’ players to concentrate on football. Cincy gets the win and cover.
