NFL Week 5 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Bengals 27, Ravens 24

Jeremy Cluff writes: "Interestingly, the Ravens are 0-2 at home and 2-0 on the road this season. This game is in Baltimore …" Take the Bengals with the points vs. Ravens

Bill Speros writes: "Burrow and Jackson represent two different versions of the quarterback of the future – or present. Burrow drops back and slings it. Jackson is all over the field and slings it – if he’s not headed downfield first. There will be an ample amount of hype generated before this game. The defenses will determine whether or not it meets early billing. The Ravens have been treating big leads like a Jenga Tower. This one should be close throughout."

Draft Kings: Go with the Bengals with the points vs. Ravens

It writes: "The momentum is leaning in the defending AFC Champions’ favor as the Bengals are riding a two-game win streak heading into Sunday night. It remains to be seen if the Ravens' secondary, which is allowing a league-high 353.3 passing yards per game, will have an answer for Ja’Marr Chase and the rest of the Bengals’ receiving corps. In a game that could be a high-scoring affair, the Bengals have the momentum and could have the slight edge in offensive talent to lead them to a win."

Fan Duel: Bet the Bengals with the points vs. Ravens

Larry Rupp writes: "Baltimore's first divisional game of the season should be close according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI seems to think the Ravens will be on top when the final whistle blows, but I side with the Bengals. Cincinnati has some momentum coming off back-to-back wins and has extra time to rest up and prepare after playing on Thursday Night Football in Week 4. The Bengals also beat the Ravens by at least 20 points in both head-to-head meetings in 2021. Head coach Zac Taylor has proven he knows how to beat Baltimore."
