Today, in the latest sports news, we are taking a look at the Bengals versus Ravens game for Thursday Night Football. The two AFC North teams are both coming in from close-call losses last week, and are hoping for a better outcome this week. The Ravens had quite the streak, winning four games in a row, but failed to raise the streak as they lost to the Browns last Sunday. Meanwhile, the Bengals also won four games in a row, but lost against the Texans last Sunday.
The Baltimore Raves currently lead the division by 7-3, while the Cincinnati Bengals are at the last spot with 5-4 in the AFC North.

The Ravens are popular not just because of their ranking in the league, but also to their players and their ability to score well this season. QB Lamar Jackson leads all quarterbacks with 481 rushing yards. In addition, their offensive line is also doing well, scoring 30 points in four straight games. This may motivate bettors to opt for Over bets for the game.
But while the Ravens are favorites, the Bengals are not necessarily easy to defeat. QB Joe Burrow may have had a rough start with a calf injury, but he has completed 74.1% of his passes in the last five games, the best in the league during that time. He has also thrown 14 touchdown passes in the same games. If the Ravens play without their usual starters, they could have a shot at winning the game.
