Cincinnati Bengals vs Tennessee Titans Preview (11/27/22): Betting Odds, Prediction, Depth Chart

The Cincinnati Bengals visit the Tennessee Titans in Week 12 of the 2022 NFL Season. The Bengals are coming off a relatively close win against against the Steelers, while the Titans beat the Packers easily last Thursday night. This should be an interesting matchup to determine AFC Playoff seeding. Let’s take a look at the odds and make some picks and predictions for this game!

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Odds

The Cincinnati Bengals are 2-point road favorites against the Tennessee Titans and are at -130 on the money line. The over/under is also at 42.5. The Bengals are coming off an impressive win, and might get their best playmaker back in Ja’Marr Chase, which oddsmakers have definitely factored in to this spread. The over/under makes sense too because both of these offenses can score, but the defenses are also both very solid too. This spread could move a bit too if and when Chase’s status is confirmed for this game.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans Prediction

The pick: Titans +2

The Titans are quietly having a very good season and they have continued to hover under the radar, and win games. They have been doing it behind toughness on both offense and defense too. The defense is one of the best in the league this year. They give up 19 points and 370 yards a game on the year. Derrick Henry is still a beast running the football, but the question remains on if Ryan Tannehill can make the plays necessary to put the Titans over the top. The game is also a home game for the Titans which is an added factor here too. The Bengals will put up a big fight in this game on the other side. The biggest key here will be if Ja’Marr Chase plays and if he does play, how healthy could he be in general. He’s a difference maker that could definitely change this game if he plays. The offense is already playing very well too with Joe Burrow having a good year and the other receivers and running backs stepping up where needed. One of the other big keys in this game will be if the Bengals defense can match the toughness that the Titans are going to play with, especially being on the road. The Titans are the better pick here, situationally, but expect a close game where the Titans can impose their will down the stretch.

Key Matchups

Check out the key matchups and mismatches for Cincinnati Bengals vs Tennessee Titans below.

Derrick Henry vs the Bengals Front Seven

Derrick Henry is back to being his normal, dominant self this year. He has 230 carries, 1,010 rushing yards, and 10 touchdowns on the year. He’s been very dominant this year and the most yards he’s rushed for was 219 in a game against the Texans earlier this season. The Bengals are okay at best against the run and they allow 117 rushing yards a game. Henry needs to take advantage of all the opportunities he’ll get in this game, in order for the Titans to have a chance to win.

Joe Burrow vs the Titans Secondary

Joe Burrow started this year slow, but he’s been very good as of late. He has 2,890 passing yards, 22 passing touchdowns, eight interceptions, and he has a 69% completion percentage on the year. His wide receivers are all very good, but he could get his favorite target back this week in Ja’Marr Chase, that would be huge for the Bengals. The Titans are not good against the pass and allow 288 passing yards a game. Burrow needs to take advantage of a weak Titans pass defense and perform well in order for the Bengals to have any chance in this road spot at all.
