  • Opening point spread: Ravens -4
  • Opening moneyline: Ravens -195/Bengals +165
  • Opening total: Over/Under 44 points scored
  • Time: 8:15 p.m. ET Thursday (Prime)

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: Baltimore opened as 2.5-point home chalk Sunday night at PointsBet, a Fanatics Experience. Within about 30 minutes, that number leapt up to Ravens -4, and it's since toggled between -4/-3.5 a couple times.

The Ravens are now -3.5 on solid two-way action with a lean toward the Bengals. Cincy is drawing 54% of early spread tickets/53% of early spread money.

"The line moved in the direction of the Ravens, despite unexpected losses from both teams last week," PointsBet trader Jack Meenan said, while noting injuries are key in this matchup. "The Ravens seemed to escape significant damage, with Marlon Humphrey and Ronnie Stanley, cornerstone vets on both sides of the ball, being designated as day-to-day going into Thursday Night Football. Ja'Marr Chase played what most would call a reduced role on Sunday vs. the Texans, but seemingly will be back to 100 percent this week.

"But Tee Higgins seems a major doubt and is looking pretty unlikely to go, along with star edge rusher Trey Hendrickson."

Higgins (hamstring) missed last week's loss to Houston. Hendrickson suffered a hyperextended knee against Houston.

"We have similar money on both sides. But when the spread reached Ravens -4 here, we saw some resistance, and Bengals +4 was popular among bettors, settling back at -3.5," Meenan said. "It's unlikely to see a movement through the key 3 here before Thursday, but stranger things have happened. Injuries are still one thing to watch.

"With [Browns QB] Deshaun Watson out for the rest of the season, these teams have renewed hope of winning the toughest division in football. This matchup will be pivotal.”

PointsBet opened the total at 44 and got to 46 by Tuesday morning. Early ticket count is 2/1 and early money almost 8/1 on the Over.

UPDATE 11 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Two teams thought to be very much on the rise were upset victims at home in Week 10.

Baltimore saw its four-game SU win streak (3-1 ATS) come to an end as a 6-point home favorite vs. Cleveland. The Ravens (7-3 SU/6-4 ATS) blew a 31-17 fourth-quarter lead, losing 33-30 on a final-seconds field goal.

Cincinnati, a 5.5-point favorite, rallied from a 27-17 fourth-quarter deficit, tying Houston at 27 on a field goal with 1:33 remaining. But the Bengals (5-4 SU/4-4-1 ATS)) also gave up a final-seconds field goal, losing 30-27.

The SuperBook had to hash things out a bit to reach an opener on Bengals-Ravens.

"Lots of discussion in the risk room on this game," SuperBook risk supervisor Chase Michaelson said. "The game closed -3 on last week's lookahead. After both teams had tough home losses this week, we bumped it to Baltimore -4. That felt like a very fluky close loss for Baltimore, and the Ravens' power rating hasn't taken much of a hit.

"This game is far too good for Thursday Night Football. It feels like it should switch places with Vikings-Broncos."

Vikings-Broncos is the Sunday night game. More on that below.
