The Baltimore Ravens will try to get a win over the Bengals in Cincinnati, plus a loss from the Chargers or the Dolphins to get to the playoffs. Ravens and Bengals will meet at Paul Brown Stadium, on Sunday at 1 PM ET.
The Ravens were blown out by the New England Patriots last week; they are 2-5 away from and need one more win to have playoffs hopes.
“I think that’s part of who we are,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “If you’ve been watching us all year, you would know that. You would understand that about us. It’s a one-game season as far as we’re concerned.”
The Bengals need a win and a loss by the Patriots to get the second seed in the AFC. “The goals are good, but we’re fighting for a bigger picture,” WR AJ Green said. “When I’m done with this game, maybe it will (mean something), but right now I’m trying to continue to get better.”
“We want to defend home and make sure we win,” Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones told the team’s official website. “If it was my choice, I don’t want Baltimore to make it. We’ve got to make sure we defend the house and play all four quarters.”
The Bengals are 6 point favorites in the spread, and the game total is at 44.5 points.
Cincinnati is 7-0 ATS in home games this season. 3 of 5 games in this series have gone OVER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons.
