This Sunday, the (6-4) Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Nashville, TN to take on the (7-3) Tennessee Titans. Kickoff will be at 1:00 PM EST inside Nissan Stadium. Both of these teams are coming into this game on a two-game winning streak, as I am expecting a battle in this one.

The Cincinnati Bengals are coming into this game after taking down the Pittsburgh Steelers, 37-30. They looked strong on offense and defense, but Joe Burrow continued to march his team down the field. They will have to stay efficient on the offensive side of the field if they want to challenge the Titans on the road.

The Tennessee Titans are entering this matchup after defeating the Green Bay Packers, 27-17. The Titans looked great on the defensive side of the field, as they continued to get stop after stop against Rodgers and the Packers. They will need to lock up on the defensive side of the field in this one if they want to slow down the Bengal's passing attack.

Can the Bengals Win Three Straight?

The Cincinnati Bengals are currently in second place in the AFC North, as they trail the Baltimore Ravens by one game. They are also (3-3) on the road this season. On offense, the Bengals are scoring 26.5 points per game and they are averaging 366.4 yards. This is the third most points scored per contest and the seventh most yards recorded per game. Joe Burrow will start at quarterback, as he has thrown for 22 touchdowns this season and only eight interceptions. Cincinnati is also throwing for 271.3 yards per game, which is the fourth most in the NFL. Burrow will look to get the ball to Tee Higgins in this one, as he has recorded 712 receiving yards and three touchdowns this season. Ja'Marr Chase could make his return from injury in this game as well, as he is one of Burrow's favorite targets. The Bengals are also running for 95.1 yards per game, which is the 28th most in the league. Joe Mixon is the lead back for Cincinnati, as he has recorded 605 rushing yards and six touchdowns this season. But he is out with a concussion. Samaje Perine will take his place if he can't start. Perine finished last week's game with three receiving touchdowns.

On defense, the Bengals have continued to give up points this season. They are currently surrendering 326.7 yards per game and 21.5 points. This is the 11th least amount of yards allowed and the 15th least amount of points. Their secondary has continued to carry this defense, as they are only allowing 209.6 passing yards per game. This is the 13th least amount of yards surrendered through the air, as they are better against the pass than the run. Their front seven has continued to struggle, as they are allowing 117.1 rushing yards per game. This is the 17th most rushing yards given up per game, as they have to clog the middle and stop the run if they want to stay competitive in this game. Germaine Pratt continues to lead this defense, as he has recorded 68 total tackles and a sack this season. Last week, he had eight tackles against the Steelers, as he was all over the field.

Injury Report: Ja'Marr Chase WR (hip), D'Ante Smith G (Illness), Chris Evans RB (Knee), Dax Hill S (Shoulder), and Josh Tupou DT (Calf) are listed as questionable.

Are the Titans Legit?

The Tennessee Titans are currently in first place in the AFC South, as they have a three-game lead over the second-place Indianapolis Colts. On offense, they are scoring 19.3 points per game and averaging 294.3 total yards. This is the 24th most points scored per game and the fourth least amount of yards. They have continued to lean on their rushing attack, as they have struggled to move the ball through the air at times this season. They are currently throwing for 165.4 yards per game, which is the 30th most in the league. Ryan Tannehill will get the start at quarterback in this one, as he has thrown for 10 touchdowns this season and four interceptions. He will look to get the ball to Robert Woods, as he currently leads the team with 335 receiving yards and one touchdown. The Titans are also rushing for 128.9 yards per game, as this is the 11th most rushing yards averaged per contest. Derrick Henry is the lead back for the Titans, as he has recorded 1,010 yards this season and scored 10 touchdowns. Last week, he finished with 87 yards and a touchdown. He also threw for a touchdown, as he has been doing it all for Tennessee.

On the defensive side of the field, the Titans have been incredible against the run. They haven't been as strong against the pass, though. They are surrendering 18.5 points per game and they are allowing 249 yards. This is the 18th most yards given up per contest, but the eighth least amount of points given up per game. Their front seven continues to impress, as they are only allowing 82.2 rushing yards per game. This is the second least amount of rushing yards given up per game, as their front seven continues to make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Unfortunately, the Titans are allowing 266.8 passing yards per game, which is the 30th most in the NFL. David Long Jr. continues to lead this defense, as he leads the team with 79 total tackles. Last week, he recorded nine tackles against the Packers.

Injury Report: Amani Hooker DB (Shoulder), Bud Dupree LB (Hip), Elijah Molden CB (Groin), Ben Jones C (Concussion), Randy Bullock K (Calf), and Kristian Fulton CB (Hamstring) are all listed as questionable.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

I will be hammering the Cincinnati Bengals and I will lay the points (-2) on the road. I see Joe Burrow and this Bengals offense throwing the ball all over this Tennessee secondary. The Bengals are throwing for the fourth most yards per game and they are scoring the third most points as a team. They will continue to march the ball down the field and score enough points to cover this spread. Ja'Marr Chase could also return for this game, as this would be a huge boost for this offense. Even if he can't play, the Bengals have enough weapons to stay efficient on the offensive side of the field. The Titans are also surrendering the 30th most passing yards per game, as their secondary has continued to give up big play after big play. They won't be able to slow down this Bengals offense, as Cincinnati will slowly pull away. I see the Titans' offense struggling to score enough points to cover this spread. They are averaging the 24th most points scored and the 29th most total yards. The Bengals will be able to make just enough stops to get the win in this game. Everyone is excited about this Titans team after beating the Packers, but Green Bay has stunk all season. It isn't that impressive, as the Bengals will put them back into their place in this game.

Pick the Bengals and lay the points (-2).

Prediction: Cincinnati Bengals -2

Full-Game Total Pick

Rating:

I will be hammering the over (43.5) points in this game, as I see the Bengals scoring the majority of the points that we need to push this total over the number. I understand that the Titans' defense has been great this season, but they are horrible against the pass. Joe Burrow is going to throw the ball all over their secondary, as they will continue to score throughout this game. Cincinnati is averaging the third most points per game and the seventh most total yards, as I don't see the Titans being able to slow them down. Now, the Titans will also score enough points to push this total over (43.5). Ryan Tannehill has revamped this offense since his return and the Bengals have struggled to consistently stop the run. They are allowing the 17th most rushing yards per game and the Titans are running for the 11th most. Derrick Henry will continue to march his team down the field and score enough points to push this total over the number. I see (43.5) points being way too low, as the offenses will be the story in this one. The Bengals can score points in a hurry, but their defense did not impress me last week against the Steelers. They will continue to struggle in this one and the Titans will score enough points to push this total over the number.

Pick the over (43.5) points and expect an exciting game in this one!

Prediction: Over 43.5
