RAVENS VS BENGALS THURSDAY NIGHT NFL BET: September 13, 2018
Pick: RAVENS ML -120
Rams Vs Raiders BET ANALYSIS
The Baltimore Ravens will travel to Paul Brown Stadium to take on the Cincinnati Bengals. Both of these teams picked up wins in week 1. The Ravens hosted the Buffalo Bills and dismantled them 47-3 behind a strong 3 touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco. The Bills were not able to do anything on offense as neither Nathan Peterman or Josh Allen has success moving the football against a suffocating Ravens defense. The Bengals took on the Colts last week in Indianapolis. The Colts went up early and were leading heading into the 4th quarter before the Bengals put up 17 unanswered points to steal the road win.
Even though both teams are coming off week 1 wins, there is skill gap between these two teams. The Ravens have some legit aspirations to compete in their division this year. They have a pretty complete team and I could see them putting together a 10 win season. I really like the additions they made to beef up the wide receiving group this off season adding the likes of John Brown, Willie Snead and Michael Crabtree. All 3 of these recievers caught touchdown passes last week against Buffalo. These additions to the Ravens wide receiving core should help Joe Flacco bounce back from his worst statistical season of his career in 2017. I really like what I saw out of him last week against the Bills.
The Ravens are the better team here and will show it in this game on Thursday Night. You have to note that this is a revenge game for the Ravens as the Bengals scored a last second touchdown to knock them out of the playoffs in week 17 last season. They will be gunning for this game. Back them to get the win in Cincinnati.
