Best Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens Prop Bets to Make

The Cincinnati Bengals will play host to the Baltimore Ravens, with a tight AFC North race shaping up as we come to the finale of the regular season. There are only three games left in the NFL regular season, and every game, especially divisional games, mean a lot in this stage of the season.

Each AFC North team has two divisional games left, with each team being within one game of first place. The Bengals and Ravens are both 8-6, with Cincinnati getting the slight edge due to a head-to-head win in Baltimore earlier in the season.

This matchup will be played at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m. on CBS. Let's look at the best prop bets for this AFC North showdown.

Best Prop Bets

Cincinnati Bengals Over 2.5 Touchdowns

The Bengals are averaging 3.1 touchdowns per game which ranks eighth in the NFL. The last time out, the Bengals put a 41-17 beatdown on this Ravens squad. Although that was probably their best game of the year, this game will be at home, and the Ravens are expected to be without Lamar Jackson again.

If the Bengals can contain Tyler Huntley or a recovering Lamar Jackson, then they should be able to keep the ball and have more chances for touchdowns. This Bengals team seems different this year, and this will be a big determination of how resilient they are.

Baltimore Ravens Under 22.5 Team Total Points

Going along with the information we know from their first meeting, the Ravens had no answer and were only able to muster up 17 points. In their past six games, Baltimore has scored 10, 16, 16, 19, 22, and 30. Their production has not been great, and Huntley needs to be on his game for them to score.

The Cincinnati defense needs to keep Huntley in the pocket to prevent him from beating them with his legs. If they can make him uncomfortable, the Ravens' offense will struggle.

Combined Total Touchdowns Over 5

The Baltimore Ravens are averaging 2.6 touchdowns per game. This, combined with the 3.1 from the Bengals, tells me that this prop bet is sure to hit. They combined for seven touchdowns in their first meeting, thanks to five from the Bengals and two from the Ravens.

The wildcard in this game will be dependent on the health of Lamar Jackson and the ability for Huntley to step up and win a crucial game for Baltimore. If he is able to replicate his production against the Packers last weekend, then I have no doubt that this matchup will end in a shootout, and this prop bet will hit.

Expected Outcome

As their records explain, this is a matchup between two teams who are fighting for the top spot in the division going into the final two games of the season.

The winner of this game will have sole possession of the first place and everything to lose in their last two games.

I expect this game to be closer than their first matchup, with the Bengals getting the slight edge due to their lack of major injuries.
