Oakland Raiders versus Cincinnati Bengals point spread, line and preview

The Oakland Raiders will play against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. The game will be played at 1 p.m. EST and can be seen on CBS.

So what is the spread for the game between the Raiders and Bengals? The Bengals are an 8.5 point favorite with the over/under (total points) for the game set at 51.

The Bengals halted a four game losing streak a few weeks ago and blew out the New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs the last two weeks. Considering the Raiders have allowed an NFL worst 32.2 points per game this season and the Bengals have allowed 23.7 points expect a high scoring affair on Sunday.

Oakland may do some scoring, averaging 20.8 points per game, but they have been blown out in recent weeks. Oakland lost to Baltimore by 35 points two weeks ago before losing to New Orleans by 21 last week.

At 5-5 the Bengals are still in the AFC playoff hunt. For the Raiders (3-7) the season has been a disspointment. After back to back 8-8 seasons the Raiders are in again sinking to the bottom of the AFC West.

Can Cincinnati win and keep the AFC playoff picture blurry?

Will Oakland find a way to cover the spread?
