NFL Week 17 Cash-In
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
Line: Cincinnati -6.5, O/U: 43.5

The Match-Up:
The Baltimore Ravens head to Cincinnati with a playoff berth on the line against the division rival Bengals. There is a lot at stake for both teams in this one. For the Ravens, win and a Miami or San Diego loss and they are in. For Cincinnati, they could lock up a first bye which would be a huge step over playing a motivated wild card team in the first round next week.

Baltimore really shot themselves in the foot last week laying a major egg at home against New England. They controlled their own destiny going into the game but now need a win and some help. The defense was particularly puzzling giving up 40 points to an injury depleted offense.

Cincinnati comes into the game after a nice little bounce back victory last week against Minnesota. The key to success lately has been Andy Dalton and the offense. The Bengals have scored 40+ in three of the last 5 games. The defense is still very good even without Geno Atkins. There is a lot to like about this team going into the playoffs.

The Baltimore Ravens took a four-game winning streak into its game against New England last week, but hit a wall against the Patriots in a 41-7 loss at home. The loss put the Ravens on the outside looking in for a playoff spot, and the defending champions now need help to make the postseason.

Trends:
Ravens are 5-1 SU past six versus the Bengals
Ravens are 5-2 ATS past seven as road underdogs
Bengals are 10-1 SU and ATS past 11 home games

The Verdict:
The Ravens need this game. They are embarrassed after last week's flop and John Harbarugh is too good a coach to let his team lay down with the playoffs on the line. This is a huge rivalry game and should be very close. The Ravens have won five of the last six meetings and need this more than any of the others. We'll take the points in this one.

Pick: BALTIMORE +6.5
