  • The NFL public betting and money percentages for the Baltimore Ravens vs Cincinnati Bengals Sunday Night Football Wild Card Weekend game on January 15 are leaning solidly toward the favored Bengals
  • Both moneyline and spread public splits are offering significant backing to Cincinnati
  • Below, see the full Ravens vs Bengals public betting trends

The people have spoken with their betting dollars and they are loving the Cincinnati Bengals (12-4, 12-4 ATS) to make mince meat out of the Baltimore Ravens (10-7, 7-9-1 ATS) in their NFL Wild Card Weekend game on Sunday Night Football.

In the NFL public betting and money percentages, the Bengals are getting massive amounts of action in both the moneyline and the spread splits. Certainly, the news that a knee injury will be keeping Ravens starting quarterback Lamar Jackson out of this game is impacting significantly on the action with both of these splits.

The Bengals are set as 8.5-point home favorites over the Ravens. Cincinnati was the best ATS team in the AFC during regular-season play.

With the total set at a Wildcard Weekend-low of 40.5 points, people are also hammering the over to cash.



The spread was Bengals -5.5 and the total was at 43.5 points when the Wild Card Weekend opening odds for this game first dropped. The game is being broadcast by NBC. Kickoff set set for 8:20 pm ET at Paycor Stadium on Sunday, January 15.

Recent History Favoring Visitors In ATS Splits



The public is backing the Bengals with 69% of handle and 80% of bets in the spread splits. These AFC North rivals met twice during the regular season and the same formula played out. The home team won outright, but the visiting team covered.

Baltimore won 19-17 at home during Week 5, but failed to cover the spread as 3-point favorites. Last week in Cincinnati, the Bengals were the 11.5-point home chalk. Cincinnati won 27-16 but again, barely failed to be covering. The Ravens managed to beat the spread despite starting third-stringer Anthony Brown at QB and with several starters sitting out for rest or to heal nagging injuries.

That game marked the first time all season that the Bengals didn’t cover at home. They’re 6-1 ATS at Paycor Stadium this season and 7-1 ATS overall in their last eight games. Baltimore is a solid 6-3 ATS this season as the away team.

Baltimore is 3-1 ATS in the last four games at Cincinnati. However, the Bengals are 7-4 ATS against the Ravens in Cincinnati’s last 11 home games.

Low Total Is Making Over An Enticing Play

Public total splits are backing the over with 68% of handle and 69% of bets. Low totals and the Ravens are becoming common partners during the 2022 NFL season. As low as 40.5 points sounds, it’s the largest total assigned to a Baltimore game in six weeks.

Baltimore and the Denver Broncos were also given a 40.5-point total in Week 13. That game finished 10-9 for the Ravens.

Since then, every Baltimore game until this week was showing a total under 40 points. The Ravens went under in four of those five games. The one over? Last week at Cincinnati, when the 27-16 win by the Bengals cleared the total hurdle of 39 points.

You might look at the weapons on the Bengals offense and figure they’d been a over machine. That’s not the case, though. Cincinnati is just 2-4 on the total over the past six games. At home this season, the Bengals have gone over in three of seven games. Seven of the last 11 Ravens vs Bengals games have gone over.

Action on Moneyline Motivated by Jackson



The moneyline splits are heavily weighted in favor of the Bengals. Cincinnati is drawing 89% of handle and 88% of bets.

In Baltimore’s last five games at Cincinnati, the Ravens are 3-0 SU when Jackson is their starting QB. They’re 0-2 SU when anyone else is under center.

The Bengals are 8-0 SU in their last eight games. They’re also 6-0 SU in their last six home games. Head to head, Cincinnati is 8-3 SU in the last 11 home games facing Baltimore.

The home team is 7-3 SU in the last 10 games between Cincinnati and Baltimore. In franchise history, the Bengals, who went to the Super Bowl last season, have never won playoff games in successive seasons. Baltimore, though, has lost five games in a row in the month of January.

Overall, Baltimore is 6-3 SU in the last nine games against Cincinnati. The Ravens are 5-4 SU on the road this season.
