Odds Say Bengals, Raiders Will Be Closest Game Of The Week

  • The Cincinnati Bengals have -120 odds on the moneyline as 1.0-point betting favorites over the Las Vegas Raiders.
  • The Raiders come back as EVEN underdogs at home in the matchup.
  • The total is set at 50.5 points with -110 odds on both sides.

LAS VEGAS – Sportsbooks are suggesting that the Cincinnati Bengals and Las Vegas Raiders will compete in the most tightly contested game of the week as the spread sits at just one point.

There are a lot of similarities between the two teams which leads towards this narrow spread at NFL betting sites. Both teams are 5-4 on the year and allow within 4.5 total yards per game of one another, but they have their differences as well.

Bengals vs Raiders Odds

  • Cincinnati Bengals -120
  • Las Vegas Raiders EVEN
  • Cincinnati Bengals -1.0 -110
  • Las Vegas Raiders +1.0 -110

The Cincinnati Bengals score 26.2 points per game and allow 22.6 points per game for an average scoring margin of +3.6 per game while the Las Vegas Raiders score 23.3 points and allow 25.6 points for an average scoring margin of -2.3 points per game. However, Las Vegas both gains more and allows fewer yards than Cincinnati, making it hard to decipher who truly has the better team.

The Raiders are averaging the second-most passing yards and fifth-fewest rushing yards per game which makes for a seemingly favorable matchup against the Bengals defense that allows the ninth-most passing yards and eighth-fewest rushing yards per game.

Betting The Spread: 50.5 Points

Although none of the team’s averages point towards the OVER being in play, their recent performances do the opposite. Those betting on the NFL can find this total as one of the highest across all Week 11 games.

Raiders vs Bengals Total Odds

  • OVER 50.5 -110
  • UNDER 50.5 -110

The Bengals average game totals 48.8 points while the Raiders average total is 48.9 points per game. They combine to score 49.5 points and combine to allow 48.2 points per game, yet the OVER 50.5 might still be the best play.

Each of the last three Cincinnati games has gone OVER the set number while the same can be said for three of the last four Raiders games. As the season goes on, the two are becoming a part of higher and higher scoring games.

The game will begin on CBS at 4:05 p.m. EST on Sunday.
