Ravens vs. Bengals Pick

NFL Week 17 Picks: Will the Ravens and Bengals hit another under on Sunday?

Will the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals play in another physical rivalry game when they meet up this Sunday at 1PM ET?

According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Bengals are a slim favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -1 point against the Ravens. The over/under total for the game is listed at 41.5 points. Baltimore won the first meeting this season on Nov. 27, 19-14 at home. These two have hit the under in their last two encounters.

The Ravens saw their playoff hopes end last week in a 31-27 loss at Pittsburgh. Baltimore is now 8-7 on the year. The Ravens have hit the over in four straight games to move to 7-7-1 with the over/under total. Baltimore comes into this game with a defense that is allowing just 19.6 points and 333.2 yards per game. Their run defense is one of the best in the NFL, allowing only 85.1 yards per game on the ground. The offense has been inconsistent and averages 22.2 points per game this season. Joe Flacco has thrown for 4,050 yards and 20 touchdowns to lead the offense, but also has 14 interceptions.

Bet on Ravens vs. Bengals

Cincinnati is also out of the playoff picture at 5-9-1, as the Bengals are having one of their worst seasons in some time. Cincy has lost two straight, but been competitive in both games. They have hit the under often this year, going 9-6 with it in 2016. The Bengals allow just 20.3 points per game on defense while scoring 19.9 points per game on offense. Andy Dalton has thrown for 3,980 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, but he is going to be without his top receiving targets in A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. Both will be out with injuries. Jeremy Hill has run for 839 yards and nine touchdowns this season.

Despite being out the playoffs, I think both teams will give their best effort in this one. The Ravens want a winning record and the Bengals want to beat a division rival. The defenses should shine here as the Ravens are a bit turnover prone and don’t have much of a run game. Cincinnati is without two big receiving targets and Hill isn’t likely to do much against the Baltimore run defense.
