Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Bengals are 3-point favorites to beat the Raiders. The total, meanwhile, sits at 46 points. As of this writing, 54% of the public betting tickets are on the Bengals to cover the point spread.

Oakland Raiders

Raiders LG Kelechi Osemele (knee) has been ruled out for Week 15. The Raiders listed Osemele as questionable, but he was never going to play after not practicing all week. With RG Gabe Jackson (questionable, elbow/ankle) also in doubt, it's a huge hit to Oakland's interior line. The Raiders will spot start Chaz Green against the Bengals.

Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals LT Cordy Glenn (back) is questionable for Week 15 against the Raiders. Glenn was limited on Friday, which at the least gives him a chance to play. His presence would boost Joe Mixon's stock on Sunday as the second-year back already has a tasty RB1-worthy matchup on paper against Oakland's tanking run defense.

NFL Betting Trends

Oakland

The Raiders are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games and are 8-17-2 ATS in their last 27 games overall.

Cincinnati

The Bengals have not covered a point spread at home in their last five games. They’re also just 2-6 against the number in their last eight games overall.

Prediction

The Raiders are just 1-4 against the number in their last five games against the Bengals while the home team is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams. That home team trend is interesting because it explains, in part, about who benefits from traveling. With this being an early kickoff in Cincinnati, the West Coast Raiders could come out sluggish against a Bengals squad that is banged-up but one that kept things tight a week ago in L.A. Oakland has allowed 30 points per game this season and is 3-9-1 ATS in its last 13 road games.
