Bengals vs. Ravens SNF Player Props, TD Scorer Bets
Mark Andrews Anytime TD Scorer (+120, Caesars)
Lamar Jackson trusts Andrews not only as a pass catcher and yards gainer, but also as a touchdown scorer. Andrews is tied with Kansas City’s Travis Kelce for the most receiving touchdowns (three) among tight ends through four games, and he has 12 touchdowns over his last 17 games.
Before getting shut down by Buffalo’s stifling defense (which Buffalo tends to do to pass catchers), Baltimore’s top receiver totaled three scores in his previous two contests.
In his last meeting against the Bengals, Andrews reached the end zone while also hauling in eight throws for 125 yards. We like him to continue torching his divisional rival, especially at plus-money odds at Caesars.

Lamar Jackson Over 1.5 Passing TDs (+105, BetMGM)
Jackson has shattered the misconception that he can’t make plays with his arm. The 24-year-old quarterback has touchdown totals of three (twice), four, and one, culminating in the NFL-lead with 11 this season. The one-touchdown outing came against the daunting Buffalo Bills.
Cincy has held all of its opposing quarterbacks to under two touchdowns, but the team also hasn’t faced a superstar-caliber quarterback like Jackson, paving the way for the quality wager of +105 at BetMGM.
Tee Higgins Over 67.5 Receiving Yards (–115, DraftKings)
Higgins is relishing his date with the pass-friendliest defense in the Ravens. Baltimore surrenders the most yards through the air (315.3) and pass attempts (44.3) per contest, so even if Higgins plays second fiddle to fellow Bengals wideout Ja’Marr Chase, he’ll still see enough targets to rack up a ton of yards.
But it’s not just the matchup that has us favoring Higgins’ Over props at DraftKings. The Clemson product is averaging 78.8 receiving yards per game this season. He’s also posted 71-plus receiving yards in three straight contests, including 124 against the Miami Dolphins in his most recent outing.

Joe Mixon Under 59.5 Rushing Yards (–111, Caesars)
Mixon is a talented back, though he has looked hard to watch behind this putrid Bengals offensive line. He’s averaging 2.73 yards per carry this season, which ranks dead last among 52 qualified runners.
Mixon’s best shot at hitting the Over on his rushing yards props is by getting enough carries. However, teams have preferred to go pass-heavy against the Ravens’ soft secondary, which leaves very few opportunities for Mixon to carry the ball.
Opposing offenses average the second-lowest rushing play percentage (32.2%) and the fifth-fewest rushing attempts per game (22.0) against the Ravens, which doesn’t bode well for Mixon rushing props.
