Is an Upset Waiting to Happen on the Road?

The Ravens started the season by playing the Texans in week one and secured a 25-9 win at home. Baltimore was favored by 9.5 against the Texans and notched an ATS victory.

Looking at their performance on offense, Lamar Jackson threw for 169 yards while completing 77% of his passes. On the ground, the Ravens rushed the ball 32 times for 110 yards. The team’s third-down performance stood at 8/15.

The Ravens’ defense concluded the game with five sacks and one interception. The team’s secondary allowed 196 passing yards, while their rush defense permitted 72 rushing yards.

Can Cincinnati Secure a Home Victory?

The Bengals started their season with a road game against the Browns, but they fell short, losing by a score of 24-3. They begin week two with a 0-1 record. The Bengals had a 21-point loss, resulting in a defeat on their ATS record. They were 0.5-point underdogs going into the game.

Cincinnati’s offense generated 142 total yards against the Browns. On third downs, the Bengals managed a conversion rate of 13.3%. Joe Mixon led the team in rushing with 56 yards, while Joe Burrow passed for 82 yards.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Bengals gave up 350 yards of total offense to Cleveland. 206 of these yards came on the ground, while the team’s secondary gave up 144 yards on 29 attempts.

Bengals vs. Ravens Player Prop

The passing yards prop for Joe Burrow against the Ravens is at 266.5.

Burrow threw for only 82 yards on 31 attempts last week against the Cleveland Browns. Overall, he has completed 45.2% of his passes for a passer rating of 52.2.

Considering the Ravens defense’s strong performance on third down this season, I’m rolling with under at 266.5 passing yards.

Also, Burrow played the Ravens three times last season (once in the playoffs), coming up with 217, 215, and 209 passing yards respectively in those contests. 

The Prop: Joe Burrow Under 266.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Bengals VS. Ravens Predictions

The point spreads have seen minimal changes so far. Cincinnati currently holds the advantage with a 3.5 point spread and a payout of -106, while Baltimore is at +3.5 (-115).

The Ravens’ defense is coming off a strong performance, giving up just 268 yards of offense, and should build on this vs. the Bengals. Despite entering as 3.5-point underdogs on the road, I like them to cover the spread.
