Bengals vs Niners Week 14 Bet Preview and Picks

The San Francisco 49ers will travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium at 4:25 p.m. on CBS. The Bengals come into this matchup at 7-5 and in second place in the AFC North, one game behind the Baltimore Ravens. The 49ers lost their last game to fall to third place in the NFC West.

Cincinnati was dismantled by the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend in a 41-22 contest at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals defense couldn't stop Justin Herbert and the lethal Charger passing game. Their offense was plagued by costly turnovers that stopped any momentum that they had in the contest.

San Francisco lost against the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle last Sunday by a score of 30-23. The 49ers had the lead early but couldn't get anything going in the second half. Jimmy Garoppolo threw for two touchdowns but also two interceptions.

Let's look at this upcoming matchup between the Bengals and the 49ers.


The 49ers come into this game as 1 point favorites with odds of -110 to cover that spread. The Bengals, at +1, have the same odds of -110 at that spread. The over/under for the game is set at 40 with odds of -110 to bet the over or under. The moneyline for the 49ers and the Bengals are -120 and +100, respectively.

These two teams, on average, combine for 52.9 points per game and have given up 45.5 points per game to opposing teams. The 49ers are 5-7 against the spread this season compared to the Bengals, who are 6-6 against the spread.

Keys to Victory For Cincinnati

The Bengals' defense will need to get back on track for the Bengals to win this game and have a shot at making the playoffs. They are still within striking distance of the Ravens with a head-to-head matchup to go against Baltimore at home. Their defense needs to be stronger to keep the offense in the game.

Joe Burrow needs to get back to his multiple touchdown ways. He had thrown two or more touchdowns in his first eight games and hasn't done that since. His lack of production is not helping the defense by keeping them off the field.

Keys to Victory For San Francisco

The 49ers have relied heavily on Elijah Mitchel and the running game this season, running the ball on 48.3% of the time, which ranks third in the NFL. The passing game behind Jimmy Garrapolo has been below average, but they do rely on the big play through the air as they average eight yards per pass.

The defense ranks sixth in opponent yards per game and ninth in opponent third down conversion. They will need to stop the Cincinnati Bengals from converting on third down to keep their offense on the field as much as they can. If the Bengals are converting, this could turn into a Cincinnati win, especially since they are the home team.
