Ravens-Bengals game thread to kick off Week 2

It’s time for some Week 2 football! The Cincinnati Bengals host the Baltimore Ravens to get the second week of the season underway. The game kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT on NBC, with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth in the booth, and Michele Tafoya on the sideline.

Both teams won their opener, making this a modestly important Week 2 matchup of NFC North rivals. The Ravens pounded the Buffalo Bills, while the Bengals held off the Indianapolis Colts.

The Ravens opened as a three-point favorite for this game, but the line has narrowed down, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. You can find the line either -1 for the Ravens, a pick ‘em, or -1 for the Bengals. This morning, I picked the Bengals, and I’m sticking with it. 59 percent of the online money is on the Ravens, according to OddsShark, and 78 percent of the money at William Hill establishments is on the Ravens. I think people are putting too much into their win over an awful Bills team.
