Titans vs. Bengals Prediction
Derrick Henry and the Titans are coming off their first loss of the season but are favored to beat the Bengals in Cincinnati on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET. Is seven points too much to lay with Tennessee or will Cincinnati falter as a home dog?
257 Tennessee Titans (-7) at 258 Cincinnati Bengals (+7); o/u 50.5
1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, November 1, 2020
Venue: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, OH

A.J. Brown (knee) returned to Friday's practice. As expected. Brown caused a scare around fantasy circles Thursday, but sitting out mid-week is actually just his normal regimen. Fire him up as a WR1 in Week 8's second-highest implied total (52.5) against the Bengals.

Joe Mixon (foot) won't play in Week 8 against the Titans. This was expected since the Bengals' Week 9 bye is just around the corner. The team will give Mixon, LT Jonah Williams, C Trey Hopkins, and RT Bobby Hart an extended rest and hope to put pressure on Tennessee's defense with the arm and elusiveness of Joe Burrow. Fantasy players should again consider Giovani Bernard a high-floor RB1 for his receiving game role for one more week.
Titans vs. Bengals Betting Prediction
The don’t feel comfortable backing a Bengals team that is down more players again this week and has players like John Ross requesting to be traded before Tuesday’s deadline. That said, I also don’t love laying a full seven points with the Titans in a letdown spot for Tennessee. Thus, I see more value in the total. The over is 4-0-1 in the Titans’ last five games overall, is 5-0 in their last five games when facing an opponent with a losing record and is 7-0 in their last seven games coming off an ATS loss. The over is also 4-1 in the Bengals’ last five home games, is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall and is 6-1 in their last seven games coming off a loss.
