Which of these two teams will make a return in the win column on Sunday? Check out our preview of this 49ers-Bengals Week 14 matchup below.
Betting Preview for the San Francisco 49ers vs Cincinnati Bengals Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 12, 2021
Where: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati
When: Sunday, December 12, 2021, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the San Francisco 49ers (odds)
Regular Season Record: 6-6
The 49ers got tripped up in Week 13 by the Seattle Seahawks in a 30-23 road loss. That loss snapped San Francisco’s three-game win streak and definitely hurt their chances to make the playoffs. Jimmy Garoppolo had an up-and-down performance in that game, tossing two touchdowns and getting picked twice while going 20/30 for 299 passing yards. Tight end George Kittle shined in the loss, as he recorded 181 receiving yards and two touchdowns on just nine catches. Kittle is a lethal weapon downfield for the 49ers. He is a big target Jimmy G can continue to look for repeatedly in the next game against Cincinnati’s defense that got ripped apart by the hulking Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (110 receiving yards on five catches). There’s also an opportunity for the Niners’ pass rush to wreak havoc against Cincy’s offensive line that had just allowed six sacks to the Bolts in Week 13.
The 49ers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games as the underdog.
Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals (odds)
Regular Season Record: 7-5
Like the 49ers, the Chargers saw their win streak end in Week 13, as they fell prey to the Chargers at home, 41-22. Prior to that, the Chargers had wins over the Las Vegas Raiders on the road in Week 11 and against the Pittsburgh Steelers at home in Week 12. Joe Burrow passed for 300 yards and a touchdown against Los Angeles, but he was intercepted twice and, as mentioned earlier, got taken to the ground six times for a loss of 40 yards. Nevertheless, the Bengals’ offense remains a big threat to any team, especially the Niners, who are 28th in the league in opponents’ pass completion percentage. The Bengals are 10th in the NFL with 245.0 passing yards per game and fifth as well with a 68.23 pass completion percentage. Burrow has been turnover-prone, but when he gets it going on offense together with running back Joe Mixon, the Bengals can be pretty hard to stop. Cincinnati has a top-10 offense in the league that is averaging 27.6 points per contest.
The Bengals are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games after suffering a double-digit defeat at home.
The 49ers win, 24-21.
