Bengals vs. Ravens Prediction
The Ravens are a slight home favorite versus the Bengals today at 1:00PM ET. Will Baltimore cover while handing its AFC North rivals another loss?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Ravens are 4-point home favorites versus the Bengals while the over/under currently sits at 40.5 points. Both the point spread and total moved off the original numbers, with Baltimore going from -3 up to -4 and the total dropping from 41.5 down to 40.5.
BENGALS KEY TRENDS: The Bengals are 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 games in Week 12, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game, and are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games coming off a loss. That said, they're just 1-3-1 against the number in their last five divisional games, are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall, and are winless at the betting window at 0-4 in their last four road games.
RAVENS KEY TRENDS: The Ravens are a perfect 6-0 against the spread in their last six divisional games and are 5-0 against the number in their last five games in Week 12. That said, they've lost six of eight games at the betting window overall and are just 3-11-2 against the spread in their last 16 games coming off a loss. They're also winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: The Bengals enter today's game severely banged-up. A.J. Green is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, Gio Bernard is out for the season after tearing his ACL, and linebacker Vontaze Burfict is questionable with a neck injury. At least Andy Dalton, Rey Maualuga and Brandon LaFell are all probable, but they still graced this week's injury report. The Ravens are having issues offensively but their defense is outstanding and should shut down what remains of the Bengals' offense. Dalton doesn't have much to throw to in the passing game and if Baltimore takes away Jeremy Hill, it'll be difficult for Cincinnati to keep the Ravens from pulling away in the second half.
