The Cincinnati Bengals will face off against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Afternoon from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Ravens are 5-0 straight up in their last five games.
The Ravens put on a clinic against the Chargers last week blowing them out 34-6. In that game the Ravens looked fluid against a talented Chargers team, dominating from the opening kick allowing just one second-half touchdown. Lamar is putting together a record season in rushing yards as he leads this top three offense. He’s also been getting it done through the air with help from Hollywood Brown and Mark Andrews, who is solidifying himself as a top TE in the league.
The Bengals have looked great on offense this year as well. Joe Mixon continues to push the ball down the field averaging 4.3 yards per carry on 111 attempts. The breakout receiver, Ja’Marr Chase, already has 553 yards as a rookie coming into this week 7 matchup. He and Burrow seem to have capitalized on chemistry built from their days at LSU.
In this battle of high power offenses, I see Lamar being the difference maker here. Baltimore is 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games and at -7 this is a price I'm willing to take. I do think the Bengals keep it interesting, but the Ravens pull away in the second half.
