Cincinnati Bengals Playoff Best Prop bets

The 10-7 Cincinnati Bengals will host the 10-7 Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium for the 4-5 seed matchup in the NFL playoffs. These teams played each other in week 10 of the regular season where the Bengals were able to dismantle the Raiders by a score of 32-13.

The Bengals are the favorites to win this matchup at -5 with odds of -110 at that spread. The Raiders, at +5, have the same odds of -110 to cover that spread. The over/under for the game is set at 49.5 with -110 odds to bet the over or under. The moneyline for the Bengals and the Raiders to win is -220 and +180, respectively.

Let’s look ahead at the best prop bets for this AFC Wild Card matchup.

Best Prop Bets

Cincinnati Bengals Over 27.5 Points

The Cincinnati Bengals are averaging just under this point total on the season with 27.1 points per game which ranks seventh in the NFL. With much-needed rest, this Bengals offense will be coming out firing with a healthy Joe Burrow. The Raiders defense is giving up three touchdowns a game which ranks 25th in the league.

I expect the Bengals to score 3-4 touchdowns and a couple of field goals to take care of the Raiders with ease. If the Bengals score over 27.5 points, they are almost sure to win. They put up 32 the last time they played, and the Raiders haven’t gotten much better since then. They have been able to sneak by some teams in close matchups and make it into the playoffs.

Las Vegas Raiders Under 2.5 Touchdowns

Along with the initial prop bet, I don’t expect the Raiders' offense behind Derek Carr to do much damage to the Bengals' defense. The Raiders average 2.2 touchdowns per game which ranks 21st in the NFL. They are a one-dimensional offense with their passing and will struggle to score as Bengals fans will pack the stadium in Cincinnati.

The main way that the Raiders' offense will be able to move the ball down the field will be passing to Darren Waller since the Bengals' defense tends to struggle to defend tight ends. I expect Waller to have one of the Raiders' two touchdowns in this game.

Cincinnati Bengals 1st to Score

This will be my stretch prop bet, but not as much of a stretch as last week’s pick for a field goal on the first drive. I expect the Bengals to come out swinging in front of their home crowd and put some points up on the board first.

This seems like a different team and a new winning attitude as opposed to past Bengals playoff teams. We will see how resilient they are in their first playoff appearance with their young core. This will either be a showcase of exciting things to come for Bengals fans looking to the future or another letdown from the Bengals organization.
