Baltimore Ravens Vs. Cincinnati Bengals Player Prop Picks
The Bengals were involved in the game on Monday Night Football with the tragic Damar Hamlin incident, and that game was later canceled. Our thoughts and prayers are with Hamlin and his family.
As a result of the game on Monday being canceled, the Bengals have been awarded the AFC North title. However, as part of the NFL’s handling of the fallout, the Bengals may have to travel to Baltimore in the first round of the playoffs if the Ravens win this game, subject to a coin toss.
That situation is frankly bizarre and unnecessary, but it does give both teams a reason to be motivated to play their starters this week. As such, we have some player prop opportunities here, and I’ll attempt to break them down in this article.
You can use the Ravens vs. Bengals player prop search tool above to find the best odds for this game among a variety of sportsbooks. You can also find further coverage on our YouTube channel. Let’s get to work.
Tyler Boyd Over 29.5 Receiving Yards (-115 DraftKings)
Marcus Peters has missed the team’s last two games and he’s currently listed as questionable this week. Brandon Stephens has done his best to step in and replace him, but now Stephens has an illness, along with backup Kevon Seymour.
The Ravens could be grasping at straws at cornerback this week, particularly with Kyle Fuller, Daryl Worley, and Jalyn Armour-Davis on Injured Reserve. With all of these injuries, rookie safety Kyle Hamilton has stepped into the slot, and he’s had some troubles – he had a putrid 29.6 PFF coverage grade last week as he gave up a 100% completion rate.
Tyler Boyd is the Bengals’ primary slot receiver, and he has played over 80% of his snaps in the slot this season. He should be able to take advantage of the matchup with Hamilton, and he was on his way to a big game with a touchdown prior to the stoppage on Monday Night Football.
Tee Higgins Over 66.5 Receiving Yards (-115 DraftKings)
You should also consider Tee Higgins this week. In three career games against the Ravens where he’s seen at least two targets, Higgins is averaging 7.6 receptions for over 100 yards per game. That includes an absurd 12-catch, 194-yard, 2-touchdown performance against Baltimore in December 2021.
If Stephens is unable to play this week, Tee Higgins would also be in a smash spot with Marlon Humphrey likely primarily matched up with Ja’Marr Chase. Even if Stephens plays, Higgins will have the upper hand against the inexperienced cornerback.
The matchup is also beneficial since the Ravens have played zone coverage at around a 60% rate over the last two weeks. Higgins is 16th in yards per route run this season, and he has an elite 27.5% air yard share. 59.8% of his target volume has come against zone defense this season.
J.K. Dobbins Over 55.5 Rushing Yards (-120 PointsBet)
As he gets further removed from the brutal ACL injury he suffered last season, J.K. Dobbins has looked better and better. Over the past month, he’s averaging 14 rushing attempts for just under 100 yards per game, and he’s hit the over on this rushing prop in all four of those games.
The Bengals’ run defense has been far better now with nose tackle D.J. Reader is back in the fold, and they rank ninth in yards per carry allowed. However, Dobbins has faced the Steelers stout run defense twice recently and averaged over 100 yards in those games. He should have no problem with this matchup.
Other sportsbooks have this set at 59.5 rushing yards, and while you can get that at closer to even money, it’s worth paying for a little bit of juice with the value on PointsBet. Be sure to shop the odds using our player prop search tool above.
