The Cincinnati Bengals are 7-4 and hosting the 6-5 Los Angeles Chargers with massive Wild Card implications surrounding this game. If the Bengals win, they’ll either overtake the AFC North with a Ravens loss or they’ll remain the No. 5 seed. If Cincy loses, they’ll drop to the No. 7 seed.
Both teams are in divisions where the title is still currently up for grabs and both teams have a young quarterback who looks to be taking their team to the next level. Both guys were taken in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft with Joe Burrow going No. 1 and Justin Herbert going No. 6.
There’s a lot riding on this game and it’ll be a lot of fun to watch. It should have been flexed to Sunday night but oh well — It’ll still be a good time.

Bengals vs Chargers Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Week 13
WynnBET has the Bengals as 3.0-point favorites with a money line of -160 while the Chargers have a money line of +130. The over/under is set at 49.5 points.
Vegas seems to believe this game is even considering three points are given to the home team automatically. It’s not hard to see why this game is even, as both the Bengals and Chargers are good teams with good quarterbacks. They’re both vying for not just a playoff spot but a division title as well.
With all of this in mind, Joe Mixon is on fire right now and the Chargers’ run defense has been laughably bad. It’s hard to pick against the stripes right now with how good their offense has been in recent weeks. Let’s roll with a 35-28 Bengals victory at Paul Brown Stadium.
