Consensus Pick of the Game
Ravens +9.5 (-110)
The weekend concludes on Sunday Night Football with the battle of the AFC North rivals in Cincinnati.
All eyes have been on the status of MVP QB Lamar Jackson leading up to this one and it isn’t looking good for Ravens fans.
It is looking more and more likely that Jackson is not going to play yet again as he is still dealing with swelling in his injured Knee.
Without their main man for yet another week is huge for the Ravens and they have their work cut out for them against Joe Burrow and the surging Bengals.
The Consensus for this game is for a Ravens cover, but it is only a 63% consensus. Obviously the Ravens still have one of the best ground games in the league and a gritty defense, which will keep you around in almost any game.
This is an odd situation in a way as well as both of these teams just played last week, in the same stadium.
But this is not the ‘same stuff, different day’ mantra.
The Bengals took their foot off the gas in that game, as they were cruising and didn’t need to play all the way to the end and they still won 27-16.
I find it hard to see a way they stay around in this one as well, and could see Joe Burrow and Co. dominating from the opening kick all the way to the last kneel down.
My Best Bet
Bengals -9.5 (-110)
Player Prop of the Game
Tyler Huntley u153.5 Passing Yards (-114)
I will start this by saying I rarely play unders.
But this one is too good not to take.
Huntley in his 5 starts this year, he has only thrown for more than 154 yards one time.
He hasn’t gone over his Passing prop in 4 straight games and I don’t see that changing this game against a tough Bengals secondary.
My first under I have written about. Let’s see how this goes…
Ok that’s it! Enjoy Wild Card Weekend…it should be a good one 🙂
