Both the Las Vegas Raiders and the Cincinnati Bengals are entering Week 11 of the Nfl regular season hungry after two disappointing losses in a row. The Bengals are coming off a disappointing loss against the New York Jets and a conference beating by the Cleveland Browns, while the Raiders have had similar luck losing to the New York Giants and being swept by the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are set to kick off at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, at 4:05 EST, and it looks like it will be a nail-biter. According to ESPN, the teams are stacked pretty evenly with a 49.7% Bengals success rate and a 49.9% success rate for the Raiders. The game will come down to crucial plays and will rely on which team can make the least amount of mistakes to pull off a lose-streak ending game.
Cincinnati Bengals Vs. Las Vegas Raiders Player Prop Search Tool
Hunter Renfrow Over 5.5 Receptions
Hunter Renfrow has electrified fans with his last two game performances. He was averaging five receptions a game and had seven in his previous three games. Derek Carr has been looking to Renfrow for an average of over seven targets per match. Renfrow has also stepped up his credentials by scoring two touchdowns in his past two games.
The Bengals defense has been struggling to prevent quick and long-range offenses from high point totals in the past few weeks. I believe Carr will look to Renfrow for easy receptions in short routes and a few touchdown passes in the upcoming game. Combined with his speed and improvement, Renfrow could be crucial for the Raiders to end their losing streak.
Joe Burrow Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns
As Joe Burrow enters his second year in the NFL, he has not shown the same agility he projected from his senior season at LSU. However, he has surprised many with his determination to the game. He has been sacked 20 times this season, but his attitude stays strong. With Burrow averaging 2.2 passing touchdowns a game, I don’t see him falling short of two this Sunday. The Bengals are coming out of a BYE week that has granted Burrow plenty of time to warm up his arm and gain confidence after a shattering loss to the Cleveland Browns. The Raiders defense has been less than exemplary this season and can allow for Burrow to find his receivers downfield for big plays.
Derek Carr Over 0.5 Interceptions
Raiders fans know the disappointment of a Carr interception very well this season. He has eight on the season, entering Week 11 with three consecutive games throwing at least one. There have only been two games this season where Carr has gone without throwing a pick. Logan Wilson leads the Bengals with four interceptions on the season and is hungry for more after exiting the Bengals BYE week. The Bengals’ defense has seven total interceptions this season. Still, with the combination of Carr’s interception history and the reset of the BYE week, I believe that Carr doesn’t have luck on his side to make a third game without an interception.
