We have NFL Week 11 kicking off tonight with what should be a fantastic match-up as Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals take on Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football. It’s been a minute since we’ve seen a match-up this strong in prime-time and the there is a lot riding on it for both teams as supremacy in the AFC North hangs in the balance. But how do we want to bet this game? The Ravens won the first meeting back in Week 2, but they were the underdog, so now the tables have turned and the question remains, will this game be as close as the first? Lets take a look at out best bets, our picks against the spread, the game total and some player props we like.



NFL Thursday Night Football Best Bets: Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens

The Spread: Ravens -3.5

The Ravens are now 6-4 against the spread this season while the Bengals are 4-4-1. However, the Ravens are 1-2 ATS over their last three games while the Bengals are 4-1 ATS over their last five, so with the increased health of Joe Burrow, they’ve obviously been much more competitive and betting them has been fruitful. We know the Bengals struggle against the run and we expect the Ravens to attack in that fashion, but given the offensive line injuries for the Ravens, as well as CB Marlon Humphrey likely missing the game, it seems like we should see another close one between these two teams. If Vegas is going to give me that hook, I’ll happily back the road dog here. Pick: Bengals +3.5 (-110)

The Total: 46

The Ravens have averaged over 40 points per game over their last four and even with some of these injuries, they should still be able to put some points up on the Bengals. On the other side, again, Joe Burrow has proven to be healthy and has been the Swaggy Joe we have all grown to love. No Marlon Humphrey means Ja'Marr Chase could be running wild all over that secondary, so we’ll look for Cincinnati to also score a fair amount. Pick: Over 46 (-110)
