The Baltimore Ravens will play host to a familiar division foe in Week 7 as they take on the 4-2 Cincinnati Bengals in an important early-season divisional matchup.

Few expected the Bengals to be competing for first place in the AFC North nearly halfway through the season, but a win here will propel them to the top of the division.

As for the Ravens, they’re on a five-game winning streak and sit alone atop the AFC with a 5-1 record. A victory in this game will continue their streak and allow them to remain the best team in the conference.

But what do fans have to look forward to from a betting standpoint? We take a look at three player prop bets that might be worthwhile investments this week.

1. Lamar Jackson, QB, Ravens: 29.5 pass attempts (o/u)

The Ravens are likely going to attack the Bengals through the air on Sunday. Despite their success running the football last week, the Bengals present a much more difficult challenge for Baltimore’s ground game.

Cincinnati is allowing the seventh-fewest rushing yards per game (90.5) and the sixth-fewest yards per carry (3.9).

On top of that, the Ravens will be without running back Latavius Murray in this game leaving an already-depleted backfield even thinner.

Lamar Jackson has thrown 30 or more pass attempts in four of his six games this season and it’s probably a safe bet that he’ll do so again this week.

Best Bet: OVER
