Cincinnati opened as a 7.5-point home favorite for today's game but the line has been bet up to 10 according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. As for the total, the number opened at 43 points before being bet down to 41.5.

The Ravens enter play with a 5-10 record and are 4-9-1 against the spread this season, while the Bengals are 11-4 straight up and 12-2-1 at the betting window. Of the wagers currently placed on today's game 56% of public bettors are currently backing Cincinnati to cover the 10 points.

Free Pick:

The Ravens have nothing to play for but they had nothing to play for a week ago and wound up upsetting the Steelers as a 10-point underdog. Granted, they'll play on the road this week, but John Harbaugh's team clearly hasn't given up and should play hard again today.

The good news for the Bengals is that quarterback A.J. McCarron is on track to play today despite suffering a wrist injury on the final play of the game on Monday night. But Cincinnati has scored just six points in the second half the past two weeks, indicating that teams are adjusting to McCarron at halftime and limiting his effectiveness. After putting together a great game plan to slow down Pittsburgh's explosive attack last week, look for Baltimore to play well defensively again today.
