The Tennessee Titans are 3.5-point favorites to beat the Cincinnati Bengals in their Divisional Round clash at Nissan Stadium on Saturday. We have rounded up our best prop picks for Bengals-Titans.
The Bengals battled to a 26-19 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in the wild-card round. Their reward is a trip to Tennessee to take on the Titans in an eagerly anticipated clash this weekend. Tennessee is the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but it faces a challenging game against a talented Bengals team.
Here are my top prop picks for the Divisional Round matchup between the Bengals and the Titans (Odds via DraftKings Sportsbook; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).
Top Bengals vs. Titans Prop Picks
Julio Jones Over 44.5 receiving yards (-115) ★★★
Joe Burrow Over 277.5 passing yards (-115) ★★★
Titans to win & Henry to score (+120) ★★★
Bengals vs. Titans Prop Predictions
Jones Over 44.5 receiving yards (-115)
Julio Jones and the rest of the Titans receiving corps should benefit from the likely return of running back Derrick Henry in this game. Titans QB Ryan Tannehill averages 250.2 passing yards per game with Henry on the field and just 192.4 without him.
Jones comes alive in the playoffs, with 834 receiving yards in eight appearances, and he is coming up against one of the league's worst passing defenses. FanDuel has the prop line priced at 47.5, so the -115 DraftKings is offering on Over 44.5 yards for Jones looks tempting.
Burrow Over 277.5 passing yards (-115)
Joe Burrow is on a hot streak right now. The 2020 No. 1 draft pick threw 1,215 yards and 10 touchdowns in his last three games, with zero interceptions. Those games were against strong teams - the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, and Raiders - and Burrow still delivered. The Bengals quarterback has 288.2 yards per game this season and he has the best yards per attempt record in the league.
Burrow only threw for 244 yards against a fired-up Raiders defense last weekend, but he should improve on that tally against a leaky Titans defense that has allowed 245.2 passing yards per game on average this season. Tennessee allowed Houston's Davis Mills to throw for 301 yards in its last game, while Jimmy Garoppolo managed 322 yards during a recent trip to Nissan Stadium, so Over 277.5 yards looks realistic for a QB of Burrow's quality.
Titans to win & Henry to score (+120)
A rested Titans team should have enough weapons to scrape a win in this game. Much will rest on Henry's performance. His return should galvanize the team at the perfect time of year. If he is firing on all cylinders, he should power his team to the win. He has the talent to control the game and keep the Cincy defense on the field.
If Tennessee is to win this game, it will take a big performance from Henry, so combining a moneyline win for the Titans with him to score a TD in a same-game parlay is enticing. Some sportsbooks are only offering +100 on that parlay, but combined odds of +120 at DraftKings look great.
