The Bengals dominated the first matchup of the season 41-17 and the Ravens have lost their last three games by four points combined. Lamar Jackson (ankle) won't play on Sunday, meaning Josh Johnson is poised to start at quarterback for the Ravens. In select markets, you can stream the game on Paramount+.

Week 16 NFL picks for Bengals vs. Ravens

Before you tune in to Sunday's Ravens vs. Bengals game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 16 of the 2021 season on an incredible 133-96 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Bengals vs. Ravens, the model is backing Baltimore to cover on the road as seven-point underdogs. Even in the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Ravens have shown incredible fight and tight end Mark Andrews has been stellar. Andrews has recorded 115 or more receiving yards in each of his last two games. Last week against the Packers, Andrews hauled in 10 receptions for 136 yards and two touchdowns. 

Meanwhile, the Bengals were fortunate to get out of Denver last week with a 15-10 victory to snap a two-game losing streak despite being outgained 292-249. Cincinnati's defense is giving up 249.8 passing yards per game this season, and SportsLine's model expects Andrews has another productive performance, which helps the Ravens cover the spread in over 50 percent of simulations.
