TV Broadcast: CBS


Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (+7.0)

Regular Season Record: 10-6

The Ravens have clinched a playoff spot so they might elect to sit out Lamar Jackson and preserve him for the postseason. Tyler Huntley would get another start if Jackson gets ruled out. Huntley passed for 130 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 14/21 completions in Week 17’s 16-13 loss at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road. Chances are, the Ravens will go run-heavy against the Bengals. JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Huntley will be front and center of the Ravens’ ground attack which is second in the NFL with 163.1 rushing yards per game.

The Under is 5-0 in the Ravens’ last 5 games overall.

Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals (-7.0)

Regular Season Record: 11-4

The Bengals are still shaken by the tragic injury of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, but they have a game to play on Sunday. We’re not exactly sure how the Bengals will approach this game. They might be physically fresh since they played just less than a quarter in Week 17 but they’re also probably emotionally wrecked. In any case, they’re expected to play Baltimore. Cincinnati has not lost a game since Week 8 and outside of its matchup versus the Bills, the Bengals have averaged 29.2 points during their current undefeated streak. Their defense should also find it easier to contain the Ravens this time with Jackson not expected to take the field.

The Bengals are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 home games.
