Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens Same Game Parlay Picks and Predictions

NFL betting expert Michael Crosson gives his same game parlay selection for Sunday night's primetime matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. Odds provided by DraftKings.

Bengals vs. Ravens SGP Picks

  • Baltimore Ravens Over 22.5 Points Scored (-180)
  • Lamar Jackson (BAL) Over 64.5 Rushing Yards (+110)
  • Joe Mixon (CIN) Over 2.5 Receptions (-180)

Payout: +310

The Ravens posted a 2-2 split in their first four matchups of the season however, Baltimore’s .500 record certainly doesn’t tell the full story, as the Jon Harbaugh’s squad led by 17+ PTS late in both of their losses to Buffalo and Miami. They ultimately lost those two affairs, however, if Baltimore actually hung on to win those contests, we would be talking about this Ravens squad very differently after averaging 29.8 PPG on 359 YPG across a potential 4-0 start, while also forcing a league-best 10 turnovers on the defensive side.

Lamar Jackson has been a nightmare to defend against in the early stages of the season, as Jackson averaged 223 yards through the air and 79 yards on the ground to go along with 13 total touchdowns in the Ravens’ first four contests of the year, which currently leads Baltimore in rushing by a comfortable margin with J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill next up in the pecking order averaging roughly 32 YPG apiece.

I’ll back Lamar to have another big night on the ground here, as he rushed 12 times for 88 yards in his lone performance against Cincy last season, and after getting blown out 41-17 in that contest, we’ll probably see him take matters into his own hands quite a bit on Sunday night.

Bengals’ RB Joe Mixon is having a pretty disappointing start to the season, as he averaged just 56 rushing yards on 2.7 yards per carry in Cincinnati’s first four matchups, which are the worst marks of his career. However, he’s been utilized in the passing game more than ever, as Mixon hauled in 17-of-24 targets for career-high averages of 4.3 receptions and 29 receiving yards in the Bengals’ first four contests, which currently ranks third on the team in target share at 15.5%, only trailing Ja’Marr Chase (26.5%) and Tee Higgins (18.1%).

I’ll back Mixon to keep it going in the receiving department, as the Bengals’ O-line struggles have forced Burrow to checkdown to his RB quite a bit this season, as Mixon caught 3+ passes on 4+ targets in four straight matchups to open the year, and I expect no different in a tough road matchup against Baltimore on Sunday night.
