Bengals vs Titans Prediction, Odds & Best Bet for Week 12 (Can Tennessee Go Blow-for-Blow with Cincinnati?)
Bengals vs Titans Week 12 Game Info
Week 12 of the 2022 NFL season includes a collision between two of the AFC's hottest teams: the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans. Getting a 37-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, the Bengals have now won six of their last eight outings, leaving time to tell if they can capitalize on this momentum.
Meanwhile, the Titans are also surging, going 7-1 straight up in their last eight games. Though Tennessee boasts a run-first identity, the passing game led to last week's 27-17 victory against the Green Bay Packers. QB Ryan Tannehill threw for 333 passing yards with two touchdowns and an interception while rookie wideout Treylon Burks caught seven passes for 111 yards.

Bengals vs Titans Prediction & Pick
If the Bengals want to win on Sunday, they must slow down Derrick Henry. The Packers "only" held him to 87 rushing yards with a TD on 28 carries, meaning the road team needs a similar performance. The good news is that Cincinnati has given up an average of just 112.7 rushing yards over its last three games (T-No. 11) while giving up just 4.4 yards per carry overall (No. 12).
I also like how the Bengals' aerial attack matches up against the Titans' secondary. Tennessee is a bottom-three team when it comes to both passing yards and completions allowed. With Joe Burrow averaging 314.8 passing yards and 2.6 TDs in his last five games, it's safe to say that Cincinnati should take advantage of this matchup.
Final Score Prediction: Bengals: 30 | Titans: 24

Bengals vs Titans Best Bet
A 42.5-point total seems conservative for this matchup. Though the Titans' defense is solid, they did combine for 44 points with the Packers last week. At the same time, the Bengals have surpassed 42.5 points in each of their last five games. With both sides fighting for conference positioning while trying to keep their respective runs alive, back the total going over on Sunday.
Bet: Over 42.5 Points (-114)
