Why Bet On The Cincinnati Bengals?
Why should you consider betting on Cincinnati? There are several good reasons actually. First, the Bengals have the statistically better offense by almost three points per game. They have the edge at quarterback (I think), running back and wide receiver.
The Bengals should also have plenty of motivation after suffering a pitiful 51-14 smackdown loss against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday as Andy Dalton tossed two interceptions and the Bengals defense got burnt for three touchdown passes by Saints quarterback Drew Brees and two TD runs by running back Alvin Kamara. The loss tied the franchise record for the worst defeat and Cincy gave up the second most pints allowed in franchise history.

Why Bet On The Baltimore Ravens?
Why should you bet on Baltimore in this important Week 11 AFC North divisional battle? There are also some good reasons to back the Ravens in this contest. First, Baltimore is playing at home where they’ve gone 12-5 SU in their last 17 games and 18=7-8 SU in their last 25 home dates against the Bengals.
Another good reason to back Joe Flacco and company is that they’re probably more desperate than their AFC counterparts in this contest. Baltimore has lost three straight to see their once, positive 4-2 start through six games go completely down the drain.
The Ravens will be well-rested and that’s another good reason to back Baltimore. The Ravens come into this contest off a hard-fought 23-16 home loss against Pittsburgh in Week 9 as Joe Flacco failed to throw a touchdown pass and Baltimore got held to just 61 rushing yards in the loss.
- Average Score For: 23.67

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Bengals at Ravens
Cincinnati has won two straight and three of four in this series, but I’m going to advise you to back Baltimore to get the big home win for one singularly important reason. Baltimore has an outstanding defense that limits the opposition to just 17.7 points per game while the Bengals are giving up points like they’re going out of style in allowing 32.0 points per game defensively to rank last overall. Cincinnati has gone 0-4 ATS in their last four games and 6-13 SU in their last 19 road games while Baltimore has gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a bye week. I like the Ravens to cover the chalk with a bit of room to spare.
