It’s been a very weird week since Monday Night Football, but luckily we have great news about Damar Hamlin and some clarity about the fallout from the canceled game. Now, the Bengals can fully turn their attention to Baltimore and to Week 18. Cincinnati has clinched the AFC North, but this game is still meaningful for seeding in the playoffs and potentially for homefield should these teams meet in the first round of the postseason.

So, you’re saying there’s a chance? It’s not much of one, especially against Joe Burrow, but a win gives them a shot at the five seed or a 50/50 chance of hosting the Bengals in round one. Lamar Jackson is still sidelined with his knee injury and Tyler Huntley is limited with injuries to his wrist and throwing shoulder. It’s likely that Huntley plays, but whoever starts at QB for the Ravens will need to step up big this week and hope for a Lamar Jackson return in the playoffs.

Here are a couple of my favorite props for the AFC North finale in Baltimore. For those of you betting in Maryland, bet with BETMGM and you can turn $10 into $200.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Ravens vs. Bengals

Joe Mixon Under 54.5 Rush Yards (-120)
JK Dobbins Anytime TD +140
Bengals -6 2nd half (-110)

Joe Mixon Under 54.5 Rush Yards (-120)

The Ravens did a bad job stopping Najee Harris and the Steelers from running the ball last week and to finish the season they haven’t been strong against the run. However, they’re No. 3 in rush yards allowed this season and they’ll want to make a statement against the Bengals before the postseason. Plus Joe Burrow will want to push the ball downfield because Cincy has the advantage outside.

JK Dobbins Anytime TD +140

Dobbins is finally healthy and he’s an absolute Steeler killer. He was excellent last week with 120 yards and a touchdown on just 15 carries. Dobbins is the lead guy in this backfield and without Jackson back to pass the ball in the red zone, the Ravens will need to run it in. They won’t want to risk turning it over when they’ve got a chance to put points on the board.

Bengals -5.5 2nd half (-110)

The Ravens did it again last week, they blew another fourth quarter lead, this time against Kenny Pickett and the Steelers.

The Ravens lost all of those games and they’ve had some serious second half meltdowns. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is an incredible second half team. That didn’t show up against New England two weeks ago, but they’re 8th in the league in second half scoring and 7th in second half points allowed. Baltimore is 21st in second half points allowed and if Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo doesn’t figure out Greg Roman’s offense to start the game, he’ll have some halftime adjustment that shuts them down completely.
