Who the Trends Like: The under and the underdog. In the last four meetings between these two teams, the under is 4-0. In the last 10 meetings in Baltimore, the under is 7-3. The underdog, meanwhile, is 6-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings.

Who We Like: Baltimore. The Ravens beat the Bengals 20-0 in Cincinnati earlier this year and now get to play a Marvin Lewis-led squad with nothing to play for. Perhaps the Bengals' players will get fired up one last time for Lewis, who will step down as head coach after today. But the bottom line is, the Ravens are 12-3-1 against the spread in their last 16 divisional games, are 5-2-1 against the number in their last eight games overall, and have covered in four of their last five games in December.
