Bengals vs Ravens: Amazon Thursday Night Football has landed in ‘Baldeamore.’
The Cincinnati Bengals, fresh off a squeaker of a loss to the Houston Texans, look to make good against a Baltimore Ravens squad that didn’t fare much better in Week 10.
With the Ravens falling to the Cleveland Browns in a game they led at times by as much as 15, tonight’s showdown means the world in the larger scheme of the AFC North standings.
So tonight, we join Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreet to cleanse our talent pallets following Bears-Panthers a week ago (although I did quite enjoy that game). It’s Week 11, and no better way to kick it off than with two of the brightest young quarterbacks in the NFL, including the inscrutable Joe Burrow.

Joe Burrow | Over 37.5 Passing Attempts | -110
In a game where Vegas likes Baltimore by -3.5, I think the Bengals will go back to the well against a Ravens defense allowing just 4.7 passing yards per attempt. Now, you can run on the Ravens, who boast the 15th-ranked rushing defense in the NFL, but the last time these teams met, Burrow chucked it 41 times.
That was Week 2, but I still like the Bengals playing from behind early and abandoning the run often.
Joe Burrow | Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns | -115
This one should be easy. Burrow has thrown for at least two touchdowns five weeks in a row. He even threw a pair the last time he met this Ravens defense.
Even missing Tee Higgins and with a banged-up Ja’Marr Chase on a short week, most of the NFL would take this stable of wideouts in favor of their current options. Burrow will still have the likes of Tyler Boyd and the imposing Trenton Irwin on his side.
While the Ravens passing defense has surrendered 2+ passing touchdowns just twice this season, once to Burrow and again to the immaculate Joshua Dobbs, it’s Thursday night, and Joe Mixon hates touchdowns. Ride with Burrow’s ability to keep the Bengals in this game with his big, old rocket.
Joe Burrow | Under 13.5 Rushing Yards | -130
13.5 rushing yards is dubious. It’s easy to talk yourself into this – I know, I almost did – but we’re taking the under. Not only is Burrow averaging 2.7 rushing yards per game, but he’s only eclipsed ten yards twice this season. Albeit, those two times of 10+ performances came in two of the last three weeks.
I’m not sure how worried we still are about Burrow’s mobility, but the Raven’s defense has averaged 12.3 rushing yards allowed to opposing quarterbacks this season. That’s an inflated number from contests against the likes of Dobbs, Deshaun Watson, and CJ Stroud – three quarterbacks much more mobile than the statue of Burrow. Lock it in.
