By Jeff Stinger

Out of Week 12’s 16-game slate, only three of them feature matchups between teams with winning records. Two of those games will take place on Thanksgiving, and the third will happen on Sunday when the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Tennessee Titans in a rematch of last season’s AFC Divisional Round showdown. Both teams are sporting two-game win streaks to date, but only one will make it three straight victories on Sunday.

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, NFL odds, and special features for the entire duration of the 2022 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at the upcoming Week 12 AFC clash between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Tennessee Titans.

Why Bet on the Cincinnati Bengals?

In a Week 11 shootout against their heated AFC North rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals prevailed with a crucial 37-30 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the win, the Bengals keep pace with the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional title race at just one game behind the Ravens in the standings at 6-4.

Cincinnati returned to its bread and butter with star quarterback Joe Burrow slinging the ball relatively well. Burrow completed 24 of 39 passes for 355 yards and four passing touchdowns. However, Pittsburgh did pick off the former Heisman trophy winner twice and also held Cincy to just 62 rushing yards on 2.6 yards per carry.

The Bengals have the fourth-highest passing offense in the league (271.3 passing yards per game) and will need another solid performance from Burrow considering their defense is average at best. Running back Joe Mixon, who was held to just 20 rushing yards last week after a five-TD explosion in Week 9, will also need to pick up the slack for Cincy’s running game.

Why Bet on the Tennessee Titans?

Continuing to run away with the division lead, meanwhile, are the Tennessee Titans, who’ve also won back-to-back games following their 27-17 road win over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. With the Indianapolis Colts losing in Week 11, Tennessee now has a commanding three-game lead in the AFC South standings and is a virtual lock to make the playoffs for the fifth time in six years.

The Titans’ offense simply looks better with Ryan Tannehill under center. In his second game back from an injury, Tannehill went 22-of-27 for 333 passing yards, a pair of TD throws, and one untimely pick. The veteran QB’s composure under center was a relief for stud running back Derrick Henry, who was relatively bottled up by Green Bay to just 87 yards on 28 carries (3.1 YPC). Henry did find the end zone for the 10th time this season and remains one of the most legitimate offensive threats on a weekly basis.

Tennessee boasts the NFL’s second-best rushing defense, allowing their opponents an average of merely 82.2 rushing yards per game. The team also ranks eighth in the league in scoring defense (18.5 PAPG) and must be prepared to contain a Cincinnati offense that’s been on a roll of late.

Bengals vs. Titans Expert Betting Predictions

If last year’s postseason was any indication, the Bengals are rightful favorites to keep their dominance over Tennessee. However, the Titans have a better defense and are nigh-unbeatable on their home field, which leads us to side with the home dogs in this contest regardless of the spread.
