Bengals' Season to Date

Rested after a bye, the Bengals (0-8) are the only winless NFL team left. Cincinnati will start rookie QB Ryan Finley (NC State) who was selected 104th in the 2019 NFL draft. It’s strange that QB Andy Dalton is heading to the bench just as WR A.J. Green is expected to make his first start of the season.

Recent History Favors Cincinnati Over Baltimore

These teams met in Week 6 with Cincinnati losing 23-17 on the road in Baltimore. Last season, the Bengals defeated the Ravens 34-23 at home in Week 2 before losing 24-21 in Baltimore during Week 11. Cincinnati has covered the spread in the last four meetings between these squads.

Ravens vs. Bengals Final Thoughts and Pick

Lamar Jackson posted 116 of the 199 rushing yards that Baltimore racked up against a solid Patriots run defense last week. Now the Ravens face a Bengals squad that leads the NFL with 177.6 rushing yards allowed per game. Expect Jackson, plus running backs Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards, to run wild.

After allowing 33 and 40 points to the Chiefs and Browns in Weeks 3 and 4 respectively, the Baltimore defense has given up 19 PPG over their last four matches. With a rookie pivot under center, we can’t see Cincinnati scoring much here. Take the Ravens to win big in a bashing of the Bengals.

Pick: Ravens -10

Season record: 0-0
