The Baltimore Ravens take on their third AFC North opponent in a row. This time, they’ll face the 0-5 Cincinnati Bengals. After picking up a win last week in Pittsburgh and seeing the Browns get demolished by the 49ers, the Ravens have a prime opportunity to extend their lead in the division. While it’s the second-largest point spread of the week, I don’t think this game is an absolute lock. Well, as far as the spread goes.

Baltimore narrowly escaped with an overtime win in Pittsburgh, even against the Steelers’ third-string quarterback Devlin Hodges. Now, are the Steelers a better team than the Bengals? Of course. But that’s not the debate here. What we need to know is how effective this Bengals offense can be against the Ravens’ defense. Let’s keep in mind that Baltimore has allowed the fourth-most passing yards per game, while Cincinnati’s offense ranks ninth in the same category. Aside from the Chiefs, the Ravens have only faced teams that currently have losing records. So, we know that this could be an opportunity for Andy Dalton ($5,400) and his receivers, as thin as they may be at the moment, to rack up some yards and possibly points.

With Lamar Jackson ($6,900) and Mark Ingram ($6,600) running the way they have been, I wouldn’t expect the Bengals’ defense to have any answers for them. Cincinnati will likely be playing from behind, though that should play well for the over. The Ravens have given up 32 points per game over their last three, but I think the Bengals will only need to reach 17 points to clear the 47.5 point total for the game, implying that the Ravens will score over 30, which they’re fully capable of doing.
