Week ten of NFL football continues as the Baltimore Ravens travel to Paul Brown Stadium to take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 1:00 P.M. These two teams met earlier this season when the Ravens won at home by the score of 23-17.

Baltimore Looks To Extend Lead In AFC North

The Baltimore Ravens enter this game with an impressive 6-2 record as it beat the New England Patriots at home last week. That victory gives the Ravens a two-game cushion in the AFC North division and they look well on their way to another playoff appearance. Now, they will have to travel on the road to face the worst team in the league. In addition, Baltimore has won three of its first four road games this season so it should have no issues getting another win on Sunday.

Leading the Ravens offensively is quarterback Lamar Jackson who has been unbelievable this season. He has 1,813 passing yards along with 12 passing touchdowns. In addition, he has also been amazing on the ground as he has 637 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns. Jackson has played so well that he is currently in the running for the NFL MVP Award and he has a chance to further cement his case in this game.

Jackson did miss practice on Thursday due to illness, but came back as a full participant on Friday. He is listed as questionable, but is expected to start. Veteran Robert Griffin III is the backup quarterback for the Ravens.

Baltimore's biggest threat on defense is cornerback Marlon Humphrey who has been solid so far this season. Specifically, he has two interceptions which is tied for the most on the team. In addition, he also has three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Humphrey is a playmaker who has the ability to change the course of a game on any given play so he will look to do that against Cincinnati on Sunday.

Bengals Still Look For Their First Win

Zac Taylor has the Bengals in terrible form headed into this game. Specifically, the Bengals are winless through eight games and are in possession of the worst record in the league. However, Cincinnati does enter this game following a bye week so perhaps the added week of preparation will do enough for the Bengals to potentially allow them to pull the upset. Cincinnati will also enter this game with a new quarterback as veteran Andy Dalton was benched so one truly has no idea what to expect from its new offense in this game. Only time will tell if Cincinnati will be able to win a single game this season.

Leading the Bengals offensively is rookie quarterback Ryan Finley who will be making his first NFL start. Finley was given the opportunity after a surprising decision by the coaching staff during Cincinnati's bye week. Finley made a name for himself at North Carolina State and was selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft as a result. Now, he will look to guide his team to its first win of the regular season.

Cincinnati's biggest threat on defense is defensive tackle Geno Atkins who has been solid so far this season. Specifically, he has three sacks which is tied for the most on the team. Atkins has been a veteran leader on this defense for many years and he will look to continue leading this unit for the rest of the season. If Atkins continues to play well, he should be able to make his eighth Pro Bowl appearance.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

Baltimore is one of the best teams in the AFC while Cincinnati is one of the worst. The Ravens have also beaten the Bengals already this season so I can see them playing even better on Sunday, especially against a rookie quarterback in his first start. They are also playing their best right now, as the defense has improved since some of the problems earlier in the season. I expect this game to get ugly early on and I doubt Baltimore will ease up against a division rival. Give me the road team as a result.

Prediction: Baltimore Ravens -10

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

Baltimore's offense is elite but it involves a lot of running plays which eats up a ton of clock. Plus, Cincinnati will be using a new quarterback so I expect its offense to be all out of sorts in this game. The final score should be somewhere in the realm of 27-13 so I will take the under.

Prediction: Under 44

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

After such an emotional win against the Patriots last week, I expect the Ravens to come out and dominate in the first half against the worst team in the league. I expect the Ravens to use their elite rushing attack to dominate the time of possession early on as the Bengals will be relying on an inexperienced quarterback. Give me the road team as a result.

Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 1H -6
