Ravens vs. Bengals

  • The Cincinnati Bengals have -115 odds to cover an 8-point spread against the Baltimore Ravens.
  • Lamar Jackson is likely to miss the Wild Card game shifting the Bengals spread from 6 to 8 points.

CINCINNATI – Oddsmakers have been extremely busy with the line between the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs. The Bengals have opened and remain the favorite to win and have even strengthened with the recent Lamar Jackson injury reports.

Legal sports betting sites originally opened the Bengals spread at -6 and has now shifted to -8 as reports have come out that Jackson is doubtful to play in the Wild Card Round.

Jackson has missed the Ravens last six games with a knee injury. To make matters even worse, his direct backup, Tyler Huntley, is also listed as questionable meaning undrafted rookie, Anthony Brown, would be in line to start.

Aside from the injuries having certainly affected the line, the way the public has been betting on these NFL betting odds has also played a role. The Bengals are taking in 84% of all bets being placed as well as 89% of the money to cover the spread.

Starting with how each of them have done against the spread, the Bengals have the second-best record ATS this season at 12-4 and are covering by +2 points on average. The Ravens, on the other hand, have a bottom-10 record ATS at 7-9-1.

Since drafting Joe Burrow, the Bengals have been favored at home between 6-8 points six times. In those six games, they are 5-1 S/U and 4-2 against the spread.
