1. Take the over 46.5 points in Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals

There is a chance that we will see some scoring when the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals square off this weekend. One big reason goes back to the Ravens' defense. Without Humphrey and Williams, they are not the same group on paper. The team still has not figured out their exact rotation at cornerback, either.

So, the Bengals have a chance to bounce back and score 24 points or more. On the flip side, the Ravens could score as well. Lamar Jackson should get more comfortable in the new Todd Monken, and with the Bengals looming, it is easy to think that the Ravens did not give everything away last week.

More than that, the Ravens did not have Mark Andrews, and he is expected to suit up this week. That should open things up for Odell Beckham and Zay Flowers, who both looked good in the opener. The pass catchers are at their best, and the Bengals' safety room is completely new and untested. It is time for Jackson to hit a few deep shots and test those safeties with Andrews, Beckham, and Flowers.
