A Cincinnati Bengals vs. Las Vegas Raiders prediction is tough when both teams have been incredibly inconsistent so far this season. The Raiders looked like the best team in the AFC West right up until they imploded against the Giants and Chiefs. The Bengals, meanwhile, were also leading the AFC North until the Browns completely dominated them right before their bye. Let’s break down the NFL odds, make a prediction for the outcome, and look at what channel/station you can watch/listen to this Bengals vs. Raiders AFC clash.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Las Vegas Raiders prediction and odds | Week 11
- Spread: Bengals -1.5 (Odds from DraftKings sportsbook)
- Moneyline: Bengals -130, Raiders +100
- Over/Under: 49.5
Which team can bounce back after embarrassing losses?
As mentioned above, both of these teams are coming off of brutal 30-plus-point losses.
However, the news is even worse for the Bengals, who also suffered a 34-31 loss to the Jets and their backup QB Mike White the week before their blowout by the Browns. After two straight losses, will a bye week be enough to get them back on track?
The Raiders are also coming off not just one blowout loss to the Chiefs but also a close 23-16 loss to the Giants. This season has been a complete roller coaster for the Raiders, who have been mired with coaching changes, controversies, and now subpar play.
With that in mind, Cincinnati comes into Las Vegas as slight favorites on the road. The Bengals are 4-5 against the spread (ATS) heading into this game and have actually played well against Derek Carr in the past. Carr is 1-2 in three starts against Cincinnati. He has 2 touchdown passes, 1 interception, and has been sacked 8 times in those three games.
Bengals vs. Raiders prediction
Both of these teams are going to be looking to snap out of their funk. However, I give the slight edge to the Bengals because they are coming out of their bye. With a week of extra preparation, a better rushing attack, and a healthy Joe Burrow, I do not see how the Raiders’ struggling defense will be able to keep up.
I expect to see a high-scoring affair, with the Bengals pulling off the win and covering the spread.
Bengals vs. Raiders Prediction: Bengals 31, Raiders 24
