What to watch
The big news in Baltimore is that the Ravens will be without quarterback Lamar Jackson. The Ravens will look for a pair of quarterbacks to fill in for Lamar but will need an inspired effort to beat the Bengals. Tyler Huntley and Anthony Brown are both expected to play today. Coach John Harbaugh will have to lean on the run game and rely on his defense to get the job done.
Betting on the Bengals
The Bengals are getting 68 percent of the public bets on Saturday which is just a smidge more than what Buffalo is getting. This is not a surprise as Joe Burrow and the Bengals have played outstanding football down the stretch. However, this is a rivalry game and anything can happen when these two teams take to the field in such a meaningful game.
Ravens vs Bengals Picks
The Ravens are a disciplined team which is why they are 7-1 against the spread (ATS) in the last 8 playoff road games. The road team in this series is 6-2-1 ATS in the previous nine meetings, indicating that home-field advantage is not as much of a factor as one might think.
Underdogs are 14-10-1 against the spread in division matchups since 2003, and they’re 3-2 when getting at least a full touchdown. The Bengals are the better team, but with an elite kicker and an incredible defense, the Ravens will make this a close game.
