- Title : Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens – NFL Playoffs free predictions
The kickoff of this fifth NFL playoff game of the wild card round is Monday night at 2:15 a.m. in Cincinnati. The game can be followed live on ProSieben, ran.de or on DAZN.
Does Lamar Jackson play or not play? This question hangs like a sword of Damocles over our Bengals vs. Ravens tip, as it is of great importance for the outcome of the game as well as for your own future. After all, he is about to sign a possibly record-breaking new contract.
Right after it was revealed he was more likely to miss out than play, Cincinnati's ratings plummeted. They are now considered favorites by nine or ten points. In the end, the betting providers expect exactly the result of the previous week: 27:16.
For Bengals vs. Ravens, our forecast is also a clear victory for the home team, although the Ravens should not be underestimated, even with Huntley or Brown. They also have the best kicker in the NFL in Justin Tucker, who can even score 12-15 points on his own.
Offense without Jackson mau for the Ravens
Especially offensively you notice Jackson's absence enormously. 10, 16, 3 17, 13, 16 - these were their own points scored in the last six games. This results in 12.5 points on average. Not a stat that wins many games in the NFL.
We don't expect them to reach the 20 point mark for Sunday either, although they have a kicking machine in Justin Tucker. The Ravens' only real chance will be to make the game an absolute low scoring game. To a 10:9 like against the Broncos for example.
But whether that will succeed is more than questionable against the strong Bengals offense. However, the Ravens should be able to score a few points alone with Tucker, who can also convert field goals well beyond the 50 yard mark quite safely.
Low scoring game likely
The Ravens' games are among the poorest in points in the entire NFL. So with Bengals vs. Ravens, odds on sub-points are always an option. However, these have also fallen rapidly in the last few days, so that in the meantime it has to be set below 40.5 for a good value.
It's possible, but we see the alternative of betting on more than one Justin Tucker field goal as the number one bet. Without a functioning offense, he should be called on much more often.
