Why Bet on the Cincinnati Bengals?
The Bengals are part of a tight race in the AFC North division. However, it’s worth noting that the team secured three of its five wins on the road.
Overall, the Bengals display competitive numbers. The team records 26.2 points (ninth) and 361.4 yards (14th) per game. Both teams are not the most impressive when it comes to rushing plays. But, the Bengals get the slight edge here. They average 97.1 rushing yards (24th) as opposed to the Raiders’ 85.0 rushing yards (28th) per game.
Meanwhile, the Bengals have quarterback Joe Burrow to thank for their solid passing yards record. They hold a top-ten finish in the league in passing yards with an average of 264.3 yards in nine games.
The Bengals put down decent numbers on defense. They hold opponents to 22.6 yards (11th) per game. Despite allowing 260.3 passing yards (24th) per game, the team makes up for things when defending rushing plays. Head coach Zac Taylor helped his team achieve 100.9 opponent rushing yards (eighth) per game.
Bengals Center Trey Hopkins is the only questionable player on the list. Meanwhile, strongside linebacker Markus Maile remains out of the lineup due to COVID-19 protocols.
Why Bet on the Las Vegas Raiders?
The Raiders will try to avoid a three-game losing streak in front of their home crowd. They produced positive results at the Allegiant Stadium with three 30-plus point wins in five games.
As a team, the Raiders average 23.3 points (17th) per game. Quarterback Derek Carr is responsible for the team’s 298.9 passing yards (second) per game average. However, the teams still struggle with rushing plays. The side puts down 85.0 rushing yards (28th) and 0.9 rushing touchdowns (14th )per game.
Now for the Raiders’ defense. The team allows 25.6 opponent points per game, and we expect the Bengals to put these numbers to the test. Nevertheless, they limit opponents to 231 passing yards (12th) per game. This puts some pressure on the visitors’ quarterback. If they don’t take advantage of the Raiders’ poor rushing defense, the Bengals have to cover ground elsewhere.
Josh Jacobs is questionable for Sunday’s game. The running back might sit this one out due to a knee injury. Kenyan Drake is likely to fill in while he recovers.

Bengals vs. Raiders Expert Betting Predictions
The Bengals’ offense has been impressive all season long. Meanwhile, we could say the same thing about the Raiders thanks to Derek Carr and the rest of the crew. The defenses play a crucial part in this contest. There’s very little separating the two teams, but the Raiders can threaten to fill in the gaps and cover the spread. This win is for anyone’s taking now if the Bengals fail to take control of the game early on. Ultimately, the favorites will have to work twice as hard to outrun the Raiders.
