Bengals vs Ravens Prediction Week 5

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Bengals: 45.6% to win
Ravens: 53.8% to win

Baltimore's first divisional game of the season should be close according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI seems to think the Ravens will be on top when the final whistle blows, but I side with the Bengals. Cincinnati has some momentum coming off back-to-back wins and has extra time to rest up and prepare after playing on Thursday Night Football in Week 4. The Bengals also beat the Ravens by at least 20 points in both head-to-head meetings in 2021. Head coach Zac Taylor has proven he knows how to beat Baltimore, so bet Bengals +3.5 (-118).
