Titans vs. Bengals odds, picks, spread, how to watch, live stream: Model makes NFL divisional round prediction

The divisional round of the 2022 NFL playoffs get underway Saturday with a matchup between the AFC’s top seed, the Tennessee Titans, and the No. 4 Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals held on for a 26-19 win over the Raiders during Wild Card Weekend, posting their first postseason victory in 31 years. They’ll try to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since 1988, but they’ll have to do it on the road against a rested Titans team that hopes to have star running back Derrick Henry (toe) active for the first time since Oct. 31. You can stream the game on Paramount+.

Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. ET from Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.

AFC Wild Card picks for Bengals vs. Titans

Before you tune in to Saturday’s Titans vs. Bengals game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 137-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed a top-rated pick since Week 14 of the regular season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Titans vs. Bengals, the model is backing Cincinnati (+3.5) to stay within the spread on the road. Several of the Bengals vs. Titans betting trends point towards this pick. Cincinnati enters this matchup 11-7 against the spread this season. The Bengals were also 6-2 against the spread on the road and 6-3 as underdogs. They covered four times in five chances as road underdogs. 

This is a tough matchup for Tennessee’s defense. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase lead an explosive Bengals offense that ranked seventh in passing yardage this season. The Titans, meanwhile, struggled against the pass at times, ranking 25th in passing defense and allowing 245.2 yards per game through the air. 

Six of Tennessee’s wins this season came down to one score, so even if the Titans are able to advance, there’s a chance this one will come down to the wire. That gives even more value to the +3.5 spread for Cincinnati, and the model is backing the Bengals to cover more than 50 percent of the time.
