Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens Odds

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens odds opened at Ravens -9.  The Bengals were not getting a lot of love despite starting the season out 3-1.  And the line hadn't moved much either with a few books offering Baltimore at -8 ½. listed the Ravens with -9 odds.

Charles Jay of had this to say about the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens matchup:

The Cincinnati Bengals have won three games in a row, two of them covering the BetUS NFL football odds, and in at least two of them they have been very, very impressive, going to Lambeau Field and beating the Green Bay Packers, and staying at home and pulling out a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. On Sunday they had a pretty close shave against the Cleveland Browns, as they had to go into overtime after Shayne Graham had one of his extra points blocked with 4:39 left in the game.

Cedric Benson, who bombed out in Chicago, is been a guy who has helped to give Cincinnati some balance, rushing for 367 yards thus far. In Sunday's game he rushed for 74 yards on 18 carries. Carson Palmer's numbers, however, have not been stellar, as he has completed just 57.7% of his passes with 6 TD's and five interceptions.

Those kind of numbers may not be enough to make a dent. Baltimore's defense, which has helped the team win three of four in the NFL football odds, has been outstanding for the most part, especially with their front seven, which has been active and effective against the run, allowing just 2.6 yards per carry, which leads the entire NFL. It's likely that they will force Cincinnati to the air, at which point Palmer, who makes quick decisions but is not the most mobile quarterback out there (and has been sacked nine times), becomes vulnerable.

Baltimore has only beaten the Bengals twice in the last 10 by more than the current spread including on the road in Cincinnati the last time these two teams met. 

The Ravens are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss.

They are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 vs. AFC.

The Ravens are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. AFC North.

The Bengals are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 vs. AFC. will be on the Ravens at -9 in this one.
