This is the first time these two squads are facing off since 2012. That game marked the first time former long-time Bengals QB Carson Palmer returned to Cincinnati since he decided never to play in a Bengals’ uniform again. The Bengals are 9-18 against the Raiders all time. Oakland is 5-0 SU in its last five games when playing at home against Cincinnati, but 2-6 ATS in its last eight games when playing the Bengals at any field.

The Bengals ranked 15th in total offense last year, 21st through the air, and 6th on the ground. The biggest question mark is if QB Andy Dalton (3398 yards, 19 TDs & 17 INTs) is the man to take this team to a Super Bowl.

RB Jeremy Hill (222 att, 1,124 yards, 9 TDs) took the starting job from Giovani Bernard (168 att, 680 yards 5 TDs). Wide receivers A.J. Green (69 rec, 1041 yards, 6 TDs) and Mohamed Sanu (56 rec, 790 yards, 5 TDs) are looking to bounce back from injuries this season.

Cincinnati Bengals
2014 Offensive Leaders 2014 Defensive Leaders
QB Andy Dalton (3398 yds, 19 TDs, 17 INTs) LB Vincent Rey (121 tackles)
RB Jeremy Hill (1124 yds, 9 TDs) S Reggie Nelson (4 INTs)
WR A.J. Green (1041 yds, 6 TDs) DE Carlos Dunlap (8.0 sacks)

The young Oakland Raiders are looking like the team of the future. QB Derek Carr (3270 yards, 21 TDs & 12 INTs) is entering his second season under center. The Raiders brain-trust made sure he had the weapons he needed this year. 

RB Darren McFadden was sent packing, leaving the backfield for last year’s late surprise Latavius Murray (82 att, 424 yards, 2 TDs). Last year WRs Andre Holmes (47 rec, 693 yards, 4 TDs) and James Jones (73 rec, 666 yards, 6 TDs) did an admirable job, but aren’t the answer in Oakland. Leading the ball catchers this year will be former college super star Michael Crabtree (68 rec, 698 yards, 4 TDs with the 49ers) and rookie Amari Cooper.

Oakland Raiders
2014 Offensive Leaders 2014 Defensive Leaders
QB Derek Carr (3270 yds, 21 TDs, 12 INTs) S Charles Woodson (112 tackles)
RB Darren McFadden (534 yds, 2 TDs) S Charles Woodson (4 INTs)
WR Andre Holmes (693 yds, 4 TDs) DE Justin Tuck (5.0 sacks)

The Bengals are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 0.5-3.0 points, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite, but 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 games in September.

The Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog of 3.5-10.0 points, 10-25-2 ATS in their last 37 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0 points, and 5-17-2 ATS in their last 24 games as a home underdog of 0.5-3.0 points.

I am picking the Raiders with the points to bet on in this matchup. My final score prediction is Cincinnati 20, Oakland 24.

Players Out or Doubtful:

  • Cincinnati: Vontaze Burfict, Darqueze Dennard.
  • Oakland: Andre Holmes, Stacy McGee.
