Cincinnati is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in November while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall. Tennessee is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against the AFC.
I get the case to be made either way here, and this is tough for the Bengals on back-to-back road games. However, the Bengals defense looked reinvigorated with the return of DJ Reader up front as he’s their run stopper and that’s going to be key with Derrick Henry in the opposing backfield. The Bengals offense has also started to come alive again and should have a field day against the 30th ranked pass defense of the Titans. Tennessee’s had a nice cover run, but I think this is where it stops. Give me the Bengals here.
