Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals Final Betting Prediction

Everybody is laying the -9.5 on the Bengals to cover. The obvious reason why Cincinnati is so hot against the spread is because Lamar Jackson won’t play.

Without Lamar stepping onto the field, most believe the Ravens won’t move the football. But that could be wrong thinking. 

Baltimore had plenty of chances in week 18 to push the Bengals. The Ravens couldn’t get it done, but Cincinnati fans shouldn’t be overly excited about the rematch.

Anthony Brown threw for 286 yards. He threw for more yards than Joe Burrow did. Also, the Ravens rushed for 110 yards and a 4.1 per carry average. 

Baltimore’s defense is the best in the AFC. It rivals’ San Francisco’s. The Bengals couldn’t stop Roquan Smith in the first game. 

The linebacker amassed 16 total tackles. Smith will cause havoc throughout this game while Huntley will ensure the Ravens control the pace of the matchup. Baltimore has a big chance to win this straight up. Give the Ravens the nod to cover. 

NFL Wild Card Pick: Baltimore Ravens +9.5
