Our NFL expert's best player prop bets for Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football
We finally get a NFL Thursday Night Football game with some substance: a showdown in the AFC North between the Cincinnati Bengals (+3.5) and the Baltimore Ravens. This line stands out immediately as a divisional matchup just above that magical 3 number. Both teams are coming off of losses in Week 10 and are battling for the top spot in this division, especially after the news that Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is out for the season. You can read our Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens predictions for tonight’s game, but for now, let’s dive into our best TNF player prop bets!
Mark Andrews over 56.5 receiving yards (-110)
Line available on Bet365 at the time of publishing.
This one feels like old reliable. The Ravens need this win to feel comfortable in the division race and I can’t see them getting away from Andrews much tonight. The Bengals defense is allowing the 3rd-most yards per game to opposing tight ends and 5th-most yards per reception. As far as the number goes, he’s hit it in 2 of the last 3 meetings with the Bengals and his career average — 12.1 yards per catch — projects this at 5 catches. The Bengals will be without top pass rusher Sam Hubbard this evening, which should give Jackson more time to operate in the pocket. I’ll do my best not to overthink this one for 1U.

- Rashon Bateman 25+ Yards Receiving
- Mark Andrews 40+ Yards Receiving
- Joe Mixon 50+ Rushing Yards
Bateman has seen his routes run grow each week over the L3 and I almsot considered playing his receiving yards straight up (28.5), but decided against it due to the receptiosn really being capped at 2 this season. His air yards in B2B weeks are the highest all season so we’re adding him in. Andrews was discussed above. Mixon was another I almost went with his individual rushing line, but he should be in line for 12-14 carries tonight depending on game script; with Higgins out, I expect them to lean a little bit heavier on the run game and Mixon has hit this mark in 6 of the L7 against the Ravens. 0.5U to win 1.36U
