According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Ravens are 2.5-point home favorites versus the Bengals while the over/under total is currently sitting at 44.5 points.

Baltimore has issues. Defensively the Ravens slowed down Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Week 1 but Peyton hasn't looked like Peyton since midway through last season and then Baltimore turned around and was torched by Derek Carr last Sunday in Oakland. Offensively, the Ravens don't have anything in the passing game outside of an aging Steve Smith, which has put too much pressure on Joe Flacco.

On the other side, the Bengals have been as impressive as any team through the first two weeks of the season. Cincinnati's offensive line has done a tremendous job protecting Andy Dalton, who has done an equally impressive job taking care of the football. The Bengals can beat you on the ground thanks to Gio Bernard and Jeremy Hill, and can also strike over the middle with Tyler Eifert or deep with A.J. Green.

The Bengals are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus the Ravens and have the tools to win this one outright, even against a desperate Baltimore team.
