Score: 10 - 27
Point Spread: -2/-105 Baltimore
Cincinnati has been playing very tight games over the last 2 but are banged up on both sides on the ball.
Baltimore's season may be over, but being a well-coached, veteran team, I don't expect them to give up and pack it in for this game. In last year's forgettable campaign, the Ravens beat the Steelers in Week 16 and lost by just eight points to a far superior Bengals team in Cincinnati in Week 17 despite playing Ryan Mallett at quarterback and being ravaged by injuries across the board. Conversely, the Bengals predictably didn't show up last week in Houston after ownership prevented A.J. Green from playing. The Ravens defense should keep Cincinnati in check while the offense does enough to get a win so I'm laying the 2 pts with the Ravens on the road here.
