Cincinnati Bengals vs. Oakland Raiders Odds

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Oakland Raiders odds opened at Bengals -10 and that line has only dropped a half point at most online sportsbooks.  Cincinnati was getting around 95 percent of the early action on this game and the Bengals were one of the most wagered on teams in the NFL for Week 11.  Only a few of the leisure sports betting sites held onto the -10 line.  Hollywood Sportsbook featured a line of -9 ½ still.     

The Bengals continue to be the biggest surprise in the NFL this year, leading their very tough AFC North division having beaten both Baltimore (twice) and Pittsburgh (twice). 

As NFL.com points out, the reeling Raiders should not present much of a challenge to the Bengals, but they have not been in this position much before, so they must avoid a letdown after last week's emotional win.

Leon Hall and Jonathan Joseph have played so well this season that many are considering them to be one of the best, if not the best, cornerback tandems in the NFL.

"This is a breath of fresh air to be at this point of the season and to be playing for a reason," Chad Ochocinco said. "It feels really good."

The Bengals won a road game without scoring an offensive TD for the third time in team history.

Pittsburgh last Sunday against Cincinnati was held without a touchdown for the first time since Week 11 of last season.  Cincinnati swept a season series with Pittsburgh for the first time since 1998.  Carson Palmer won a game without a passing TD for the first time since Week 14 of the 2007 season.

It should be noted that the home team has won 8 of the last 10 in this series dating back to 1989.  Cincinnati won the last meeting in 2006.

Some important Cincinnati Bengals vs. Oakland Raiders odds trends to consider prior to betting on this game:

The Bengals are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. win.

The Bengals are 5-11 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
