This matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Cincinnati Bengals is one of the closer matchups of the Divisional Round with just a 3.5-point spread in favor of the Titans.

While the Bengals have been impressive, they do not have as much playoff experience that the Titans have. Also, many have forgotten that Derrick Henry has a good chance at returning to the starting lineup in the divisional round. That said, there should be no surprises as to why the Titans are favored on NFL sportsbooks.

For those that have faith in the Titans winning, instead of taking their odds on the moneyline, their stage of elimination odds to lose in the Championship Round offer much more value. If the Titans were to win this game, they would take on the winner of the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills matchup, each of which have much shorter odds to win the Super Bowl than they do. That would likely mean the Titans go into the Championship Round with underdog odds.

All in all, a $100 bet on the Titans to win over the Bengals would profit just $54 while a bet on them to lose in the AFC Championship would make $165.
