Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals (+3.5)
Regular Season Record: 10-7
The long wait for a Bengals win in the playoffs is finally over. For the first time in three decades, the Bengals scored a victory beyond the regular season when they downed the Las Vegas Raiders at home in the AFC Wild Card round, 26-19. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow went 24/34 for 244 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions. Cincinnati’s passing attack has been lethal all season long, and it’s got a chance to glow up again this coming weekend against the Titans, who allowed 245.2 passing yards per game back in the regular season. It’s the same Titans defense that also let Davis Mills pass for over 301 yards and three touchdowns and without an interception in Week 18’s too-close0-for-comfort 28-25 win over the Houston Texans on the road back in Week 18.
The Bengals are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games overall.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (-3.5)
Regular Season Record: 12-5
The Titans are finally going to see action after a long rest, thanks to a bye in the Wild Card round. As mentioned earlier, Tennessee took care of business against the lowly Texans in the regular-season finale, though, it was not a very convincing victory for the AFC’s no. 1 seed. But one thing to know about the Titans is that since Mike Vrabel became head coach of Tennessee, they have gone 8-0 straight up in non-Week 1 games after at least nine game-days of inactivity. Even bigger news for Tennessee is that Derrick Henry seems to be on his way to finally make a return to action. Henry has been designated for return, and that should scare Cincinnati. The Bengals finished the regular season just 13th in terms of rush DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average).
The Titans are 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 home games.
The Titans win, 26-23.
