Ravens Bengals Wild Card Pick, Cincy big

Sunday night’s playoff tilt between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals has been marred by Lamar Jackson’s lingering injury and the frustration it is clearly causing in Baltimore. Still, anything can happen in this crazy league and the point spread is juicy as a result.

There are plenty of playoff UNDER trends between these teams and the Ravens have been beasts as underdogs while the Bengals have been cover machines all year.

With the Bengals laying 8.5 points, let’s look at both sides.

Ravens Bengals Wild Card pick: Odds CIN -8.5, Total 40.5 | Matchup Stats

WHY THE RAVENS WILL COVER

It’s still a big number for a divisional matchup, and the Ravens still have the league’s third-ranked scoring defense to keep this close.

WHY THE BENGALS WILL COVER

Without Jackson down the stretch, the Ravens suffered uncharacteristic double-digit losses to both Cleveland and this very Bengals team.

RAVENS BENGALS WILD CARD PICK

I think that the moment Jackson was ruled out, the Ravens realized it isn’t happening this year. That being the case, I’m not sure they’ll show up for a road game with a team that has been dominant during the second half of the season. Cincy wins in lopsided fashion.

Cincy Baltimore Anytime TD Props

J.K. Dobbins +200

Getting a starting running back at +200 is too good to pass up.

Mixon + Chase parlay +301

With Higgins going into the game banged up, Mixon and Chase will have to carry the load for the Bengals offense.
