In my analysis, I favor the Bengals, particularly with the -3 spread, making them a top pick. Although the Baltimore offense seemed lackluster in their recent game against Houston, the final score might be misleading in terms of their performance. Furthermore, Cincinnati’s offense historically struggles in Cleveland, but their potential should not be underestimated. Last season, they rebounded from a low offensive output with a 42-point game the following week. I believe this does not accurately represent the Bengals’ overall performance for the rest of the year, and adverse weather conditions may have played a role last week. On the defensive front, Cincinnati’s pass defense has shown strength, and their rush defense will now face Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and an ailing offensive line, likely missing Ronnie Stanley and Tyler Linderbaum. It’s worth noting that injuries are already impacting the Ravens, a recurring theme for them in recent years.”
