Bengals vs Ravens Prediction & Pick

AFC North divisional matchups can be some of the toughest games to predict all season. These teams know one another well and both want to gain an edge in the race for a title. Baltimore has a chance to bounce back in front of its home crowd, but it's Cincinnati that has the edge in this battle.

The Bengals beat the Ravens by a combined score of 82-38 across two 2021 meetings. Quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 941 yards, 7 touchdowns and only 1 interception in those games. More of the same should be expected given Baltimore is allowing the most passing yards per game in the NFL (315.3).

Final Score Prediction: Bengals: 24 | Ravens: 21

Bengals vs Ravens Best Bet

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Betting the under in terms of the point total has been a cash cow in Bengals games. In fact, it has hit in each of Cincinnati's last nine contests dating back to the 2021 season. None of the team's games this season have crossed the 43-point mark, yet the point total for this game is set at 47.5 points.

Yes, the Ravens are capable of getting beat through the air. They also own the ninth-highest rushing play percentage in the league (45.6%), though, and are not afraid to chew the clock in the second half when they possess the football. Keep in mind the under has hit in four of Baltimore's last six games.

Bet: Under 47.5 Points (-110)
