Six months after facing off in Super Bowl LVI, the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will meet again during the final week of preseason games. While the stakes for this bout are considerably lower, the Bengals still have something to play for after losing their first two preseason matches.

The Rams have split their preseason contests, beating the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1 but falling to the Houston Texans in Week 2. Los Angeles will look to bounce back with a road win in Cincinnati to close out its August schedule.

The Bengals enter this Super Bowl rematch as a small favorite on the moneyline and the spread. The total of 37.5 is in line with other games this week, which are generally between 36.5 and 40.5.

Rams vs Bengals Prediction & Pick

The Rams followed up an impressive Week 1 win over the Chargers with a disappointing Week 2 win against the Texans. Perhaps they were playing down to their competition, but they'll need to step it up against a far more talented Bengals squad.

Cincinnati lost by 13 points to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 but only fell by a field goal to the New York Giants in Week 2, so the Bengals are trending in the right direction. Defense has been their biggest issue thus far, as they've allowed 61 points in just two games.

Cincinnati's defense will have its hands full with LA's high-flying offense, making this a tough matchup for the Bengals at home.

Final Score Prediction: Rams: 24 | Bengals: 17

Rams vs Bengals Best Bet

The Rams were the better team last year, and they're still the better team this year. That's been true during the preseason, and it should hold true again versus the Bengals.

While both offenses are explosive, Los Angeles has a clear edge on defense. McVay is more highly regarded than Taylor as well, especially in the preseason where the latter has struggled throughout his career.

Los Angeles should either win this game outright or stay close enough to cover in defeat, so take the Rams against the spread.

Bet: Los Angeles Rams +2.5 (-110)
