They, the Ravens, are +8.5 (bet365) on the spread for the game as they prepare to face the Cincinnati Bengals, a team that went 8-1 when hosting.

The injury report for the game has recently been updated and there is a lot of information to process, especially on the Baltimore side. The Baltimore Ravens have a situation with their starting quarterback that will need to be monitored this week. It’s this situation that is making Cincinnati the large favorite in the game.

Lamar Jackson: DNP on Wednesday after practice

The injury report listed Lamar Jackson, the quarterback for Baltimore. Jackson, as of Wednesday after practice, has a problem with his knee, according to the report. Importantly, he was DNP for practice on Wednesday, meaning he had the worst designation for practice status. He is questionable for the game and the chance that he will not play has to be taken seriously. Jackson missed plenty of games down the stretch of the regular season.

The Baltimore Ravens also had Tyler Huntley on the injury report. That’s their backup QB, who has a shoulder and wrist problem. The following teammates of his were DNP due to injuries (ie. not rest) on the report for Baltimore: Calais Campbell, Gus Edwards, and Justin Houston. In total, Baltimore had twelve players listed on their half of the injury report. It truly is a problematic report that casts plenty of doubt on their ability to go into Cincinnati and beat a team that’s as strong as the Bengals.

Cincinnati barely has any injuries

Meanwhile, Cincinnati had three players, including Tee Higgins (who has an illness), on their half of the report. Higgins is a key player but when measured against what Baltimore is dealing with, the Bengals clearly have the better report heading into this game.
