Patriots vs. Bengals Total Prediction

New England Patriots vs. Cincinnati Bengals, 12/13/19 NFL Week 15 Predictions

Tom Brady and the struggling Patriots offense will attempt to right the ship on Sunday when they visit the Bengals at 1:00 p.m. ET. With the total climbing from 40.5 to 41.5, is there some value in the over despite New England’s offensive issues?

New England Patriots Fantasy Spin

Tom Brady (elbow) is practicing in full for Week 15 against the Bengals. Brady had his elbow heavily wrapped after last week's loss to Kansas City, but his availability for Sunday's game in Cincinnati was never a concern. The 42-year-old has looked his age recently, though his matchup against the lowly Bengals couldn't be much better. The Patriots enter Sunday as 9.5-point road favorites.

Cincinnati Bengals Fantasy Spin

Andy Dalton completed 22-of-38 passes for 262 scoreless yards and one interception in the Bengals' 27-19, Week 14 loss to the Browns. His interception was returned 61 yards for a pick-six by Denzel Ward. Joe Mixon was the offense for the Bengals. Dalton is one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks and will face the Patriots in Week 15. He won't even be a two-QB league option.

NFL Betting Trends

New England

The under is 6-2 in the Patriots’ last eight road games and is 20-7 in their last 27 games when they failed to cover the spread in their previous game.

Cincinnati

The under is 12-4-2 in the Bengals’ last 18 games overall and is 12-3-1 in their last 16 games as an underdog.

Prediction

This could be the week that New England finally gets into a rhythm offensively. The Bengals posses one of the worst linebacking units in the league and while their defense had strung some decent games together prior to last week, they struggled last Sunday versus the Browns. If the Patriots can jumpstart their running game, that could finally open the play-action game for Brady and his struggling receivers. With the over cashing in six of the previous eight meetings between these two teams, I’m going to roll the dice that New England figures some things out this weekend. Plus, how perfect would it be that the week the Pats are once again accused of cheating that their offense comes alive?

NFL Week 15 Prediction: Patriots/Bengals OVER 41.5
