When the Baltimore Ravens take on the Cincinnati Bengals, it will be a major division battle. With the Ravens sitting at 1-0 and the Bengals at 0-1, it would be huge for the Ravens to take this, get out in front of the division, and see the Bengals lose their second division game already.

If you are looking to make the game more interesting by placing a wager, what are some good bets to make on the Baltimore Ravens at the Cincinnati Bengals?

3. Take Odell Beckham over 36.5 receiving yards vs Cincinnati Bengals

After recording just 37 yards in week one, it is not a shock to see that his line is at 36.5, right where he was in the week prior. However, if you watched Odell Beckham in his return from missing an entire season and looked at the advanced stats, it could be easy to make the case that he will have an even better game this week.

First, he was looking good and got open multiple times. He caught a 29-yard pass but also drew pass interference twice for gains over 15 yards. If he connects on any of those, he is going to fly over this total. Beckham consistently gets the deep routes because it opens the gadget plays underneath for Flowers, so it can take just one or two catches for him to get here.

With Nick Scott and Dax Hill, the Bengals have two new safeties, and Chidobe Awuzie is coming back from an injury last year. The Bengals were not tested due to the weather in Cincinnati, and the Ravens did not open up the passing attack, but you could see both things happen this week. This could lead to Odell Beckham not just going over 36 yards but going over 50, and much closer to 100 yards.
