Bengals vs Saints Week 6 Game Info
Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season includes a showdown between the Cincinnati Bengals and New Orleans Saints. Just when things were looking good, the Bengals' two-game winning streak was snapped by a close-fought 19-17 loss to the rival Baltimore Ravens over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the Saints came out on the right side of a 39-32 shootout with the Seattle Seahawks. In what wasn't the prettiest of wins, gadget player Taysom Hill led the charge with 112 rushing yards and three touchdowns on nine carries while also completing a 22-yard passing TD to Adam Trautman.

Bengals vs Saints Prediction & Pick
Even though these two teams have matching records, I'm backing the Bengals here. Sure, the Saints have momentum from last week's victory, but their only two wins this season have come against the Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons — far from the best that the NFL has to offer.
Meanwhile, the Bengals have two decisive wins over the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets before nearly defeating the AFC North-leading Ravens over the weekend. Things may not have been perfect for Cincinnati, but Zac Taylor's team has shown a lot more consistency thus far.
The Saints also own the sixth-worst scoring defense in the league, which is something that I expect Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati offense to take advantage of. Barring a disastrous outing, I expect the Bengals to pick up the road victory here.
Final Score Prediction: Bengals: 27 | Saints: 18

With each of Cincinnati's four wins over that six-game stretch coming by at least seven points, I have no issues backing the Bengals as 1.5-point favorites.
