Ravens vs Bengals Prediction Wild Card 

The 2022-23 NFL season will feature a Ravens-Bengals matchup for the third time in the Wild Card Round. These division rivals just squared off in Week 18, and Cincinnati had little troubles putting away the Anthony Brown-led Baltimore offense 27-16.

Quarterback will be the biggest question for the Ravens entering this contest. There's no signs that former MVP Lamar Jackson is ready to return yet, which could thrust Tyler Huntley into starting duties once again. Baltimore's looked hapless without Jackson this season, going 2-3 and failing to score more than 17 points in each of those five contests.

Cincy is rolling as winners of eight straight heading into the playoffs, and they should ride that momentum to an easy victory of the Ravens. Bet Bengals -5.5 (-110).
