Bengals-Raiders: Stats Last Season

2019: The NFL Week 11 

In a matchup broadcasted by CBS, the winless Bengals (0-9) visited the Las Vegas Raiders (5-4) at RingCentral Coliseum. 

Maxx Crosby of the Las Vegas Raiders had his best day as a pass rusher for four years. On the other hand, Trayvon Mullen kept the Raiders’ defensive surge going with a game-clinching interception. 

On a day when the Raiders’ offense did a pair of turnovers, running back Josh Jacobs committed his first career fumble in the red zone. 

The Raiders QB Derek Carr passed for 292 yards and a touchdown, while his teammate Josh Jacobs secured his fourth 100-yard game in the last six weeks.

Crosby earned a rookie record of four sacks as the Raiders harassed Bengals rookie QB, Ryan Finley. It was the second-most sacks in a single game by a Raider’s player since Khalik Mack had five against the Denver Broncos in December 2015. 

Mack was traded to the Chicago Bears in 2018 in exchange for two first-round NFL picks. 

Las Vegas shut down Cincinnati’s offense after its running back Joe Mixon gave the team a lift in the first half.  Eventually, the Raiders beat the stumbling Cincinnati Bengals, 17-10. 

Bengals-Raiders: The 2019 NFL Betting Trends 

Prediction: The Raiders would score 42 points in the game, while the Bengals would only score 13 points.

Moneyline: Oddsmakers believed that the Raiders would win the matchup, so they had a  double-digit home favorite. Las Vegas was favored by 10.5. 

Against the spread: The Raiders (-10.5, -115) were worth a play. Las Vegas was 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games. Meanwhile, the underdog Bengals (+10.5, -106) lost their previous three games by a combined 60 points. 

Over/under: The “over” 48.5 (-115) was worth a small-unit play, but the strongest play was the first-half “over” 23.5 (-134). 

Bengals-Raiders: How to Bet

You can bet on the moneyline if you think either the Bengals or the Raiders can win outright. Check out the NFL odds here to help you decide. 

A point spread is also a good option since it has three possible outcomes: win, loss, or push. A push happens when the game’s result falls precisely on the point spread margin, resulting in a canceled bet.
