After picking out three winning tips for MNF, our in-house football expert is back with his next batch of selections for TNF’s matchup between Baltimore and Cincinnati
The NFL regular season is drawing closer to its climax, with only eight gameweeks remaining until the playoffs get underway.
Our resident football tipster has been on fire as of late, with his last five NFL tips all winning – including a full house on MNF’s game between the Broncos and the Bills.
Our man has three more selections on his pad – as he focuses on the TNF showdown between AFC North Rivals Baltimore and Cincinnati.
Here are the Best Bets for Week 11’s TNF matchup.
RULING THE BIRD’S NEST
This Bengals team is just getting started this season, and they could continue their pursuit for a playoff spot with a win over here.
Cincinnati rallied late to nearly snatch victory over the Texans – but they just fell short after a spectacular last-gasp game-winning drive orchestrated by rookie QB C.J. Stroud.
Even with Tee Higgins out again and Ja’Marr Chase carrying an injury, the Bengals should be able to take it in their stride and disrupt their noisy division rivals here.
The Ravens blew it late on against the Browns last time out, and they even held 96% win probability with 11 minutes to go – yet they managed to give up 17 points in the last 10 minutes and suffer defeat.
That could have a knock-on effect here and with Lamar Jackson likely to see some form of regression in the coming weeks, Baltimore could struggle in this matchup.
The Bengals have been offered a three-and-a-half point cushion on the spread – and that looks to be the play here.
TIP: Cincinnati Bengals +3.5 (-115, FanDuel)
NOT MARKING MARK
Proving to be one of the most consistent pieces of the Ravens offense, tight end Mark Andrews could have another big performance for his franchise this week.
The sixth-year pro has surpassed 55 receiving yards in five of their last seven games – while sitting second in targets and receptions in the Ravens pass attack.
With the Bengals allowing an average of 66.6 yards per game to tight ends this season, it would not be a surprise to see Mark Andrews making a few catches here and drumming up the yardage.
His target of 54.5 yards looks achievable – especially with Cincinnati struggling to stop tight ends throughout the campaign.
TIP: Mark Andrews Over 54.5 Receiving Yards (-115, DraftKings)
BOUNCE BACK BOYD
With Tee Higgins ruled out for a second straight contest, Tyler Boyd could see plenty of workload come his way once again here.
The veteran wideout recorded eight catches for 117 yards against the Texans – and he could well see a high number of targets come his way once again.
Boyd saw two of the three redzone targets that Joe Burrow threw last week – including a pass that would have been a certain touchdown had he not dropped it.
While the Ravens have proven to be solid in dealing with wide receivers this year, they could struggle to contain the elite passing attack that the Bengals possess.
Boyd holds an appealing price to find the endzone here – and looks good value to back.
