The Baltimore Ravens will play the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC Wild Card Playoff game on Sunday night at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Baltimore Ravens are 10-7 this season after they lost to Cincinnati by a score of 27-16 in their last game. Baltimore gained 386 total yards, but turned the ball over four times in the loss. The Baltimore offense is averaging 20.6 points per game with 178.8 passing yards per game and 160 rushing yards per game. Tyler Huntley (questionable) has thrown for 658 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Ravens this season. J.K. Dobbins has rushed for 520 yards and two touchdowns, while Mark Andrews has caught 73 passes for 847 yards and five scores for Baltimore. The Baltimore defense is giving up 18.5 points per game and 324.3 yards per game.

The Cincinnati Bengals are 12-4 this season after they defeated Baltimore by a score of 27-16 in their last game. Cincinnati gained 257 total yards and went 5-15 on third down attempts in the win. The Cincinnati offense is averaging 26.1 points per game with 265 passing yards per game and 95.5 rushing yards per game. Joe Burrow has thrown for 4,475 yards, 35 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions for the Bengals this season. Joe Mixon has rushed for 814 yards and seven touchdowns, while Ja’Marr Chase has caught 87 passes for 1,046 yards and nine scores for Cincinnati. The Cincinnati defense is allowing 20.1 points per game and 335.7 yards per game.

Baltimore is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 playoff road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 playoff games. The under is 5-1 in Baltimore’s last 6 games. Cincinnati is 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games against the AFC. The under is 8-0 in Cincinnati’s last 8 playoff games. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Cincinnati.

Cincinnati comes into this game playing like one of the best teams in the NFL, while Baltimore has lost three of their last four games and has some major concerns at quarterback. Huntley is questionable to play and if he is unable to go, it will be Anthony Brown at quarterback. Cincinnati should have no issues winning this game, but I like the over here. Cincinnati has scored at least 22 points in five straight games and I expect Baltimore to get a few scores, even with a backup quarterback. Take the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
