The Cincinnati Bengals hit the road to Sin City to square off against the Las Vegas Raiders. Both teams are 5-4 and in desperate need of a win. 

After a 5-2 start, the Cincinnati Bengals stumbled in the two weeks leading up to their BYE and are currently 5-4 and in jeopardy of dropping to .500 this weekend. The Las Vegas Raiders are in the exact same boat, having started 5-2 and then dropping two straight games to also sit at 5-4 on the year.

With this game being so big for both sides, let’s take a look at some of the best prop bets. All odds are courtesy of WynnBET.

Cincinnati Bengals Prop Bets

1. Joe Burrow Interceptions (0.5) 

This one seems waaaaay too easy to bet the over on. I mean — You’ve watched Joe Burrow this season, right? He’s thrown at least one interception in five straight games and is tied for the league lead in interceptions thrown this season.

While Burrow is going to be determined to cut back on the picks this week, it’s hard to imagine him not throwing one this week after he’s struggled with turnovers all season. All he has to do here is throw one pick to qualify for the over. Why not take what’s given here?

Over (+100)

2. Tyler Boyd Receiving Yards (40.5)

The line for Tyler Boyd here is set incredibly high considering how invisible he’s been in the offense these past few weeks. Through his nine games this season, Boyd has only gone for over 40.5 points just three times. He’s coming off a game where he had just one catch for 11 yards and while fans are hoping to see him get more involved this week, it feels risky to bet on him going for over 40 yards.

Under (-108)

3. Joe Mixon Scrimmage Yards (86.5)

The Bengals run game hasn’t been what they’ve wanted it to be but Joe Mixon is still producing at a high level for them. He’s not just doing it on the ground either; Mixon is a pass-catching threat and that’s why his 86.5 scrimmage yard total for this week seems low.

Mixon has finished below that mark in four games this season and one of those was when he didn’t finish due to injury. After seeing what Darrel Williams of the Chiefs was able to do against the Raiders last week, fans should feel pretty confident in Mixon’s abilities this weekend.

Over (-110)
