Cincinnati Bengals vs Denver Broncos NFL Pick – Week 15

The NFL is set up with another great slate of football on December 19. Twelve games are up on the board throughout Sunday afternoon. One of these matchups will be between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Denver Broncos. These two teams have been solid this season and will look for a big win on Sunday. This game will kick off at around 4:05 PM Eastern time.

Cincinnati has earned a record of 7-6 throughout this season, which has them sitting in third place of the AFC North. The Bengals have lost their last two games and four of their last six. Cincinnati will look to get back on track in this one after a loss in overtime in Week 14. I expect the Bengals to come out fast on the road on Sunday afternoon.

The Broncos have put up a record of 7-6 to this point in the season, which has them in third place of the AFC West. Denver is coming off a win in their last matchup and have won four of their last six. The Broncos will look to stay hot after a dominant second half last week. Denver will look to grab a pivotal win in the wild card race at home.

These two teams have been solid throughout this season and are very much in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Bengals have hit a bit of a slide as of late, while Denver has been on a roll recently. These two teams will look to earn a big win in this one. If either team can grab an early lead, it could be enough for a win on Sunday.

Bengals vs. Broncos NFL Game Preview

The last matchup between these two teams was in Week 13 during the 2018 season. Jeff Driskel had a passing touchdown for Cincinnati, but it was not enough. Case Keenum had a passing touchdown, while Phillip Lindsay had two rushing touchdowns. The Broncos were able to earn a 24-10 win on the road in the last meeting.

The Bengals and Broncos met up 32 times throughout their histories. Denver has earned a record of 22-10 to lead the all-time series. The Broncos have won three of their last four games against Cincinnati. The Bengals have improved since the last meeting and will look for a big win in this one. I expect Cincinnati to come out strong on the road.

These two teams look much different from the last time they met up. Case Keenum was the Quarterback for Denver in the last matchup, while Jeff Driskel started for the Bengals. Joe Burrow is now the starter for Cincinnati, while Teddy Bridgewater will get the nod for the Broncos. If either Quarterback can come out fast, it could be enough for the win.

Opening Odds and Line Movement

The spread for this game opened up at -5 ½ for the Broncos. The line has dropped down to -2 ½ in favor of Denver. This line has stayed the same with a couple of days before kick off.

The total for Sunday’s tilt between Cincinnati and Denver started at 45 points. The over/ under has not moved much, dropping to 44 points before the game starts. This line makes sense with both defenses playing strong this season.

The spread has dropped down to closer to even, which makes sense with both teams playing similar this season. Denver has been better as of late, but the Bengals have been strong as well this season. Cincinnati will look for a quick start in this one.

Free Bet and Game Prediction: Cincinnati Bengals +124

These two teams have been solid throughout this season and will look for a big win in this one. Cincinnati has struggled a bit in their last stretch of games, but I think they will bounce back on Sunday afternoon. The Broncos are coming off a big win last week, but I expect a faster start in this one. If the Bengals can grab an early lead on the road, I think they will get the win.

Joe Burrow has been really strong for Cincinnati, but he has struggled as of late. Burrow has passed for 3483 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He has rushed for 72 yards and two touchdowns. Teddy Bridgewater has been solid for Denver throughout the season. Bridgewater has thrown for 2954 yards, 18 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He has run for 96 yards and two touchdowns.

The Broncos are listed as slight favorites in this one, which I think is wrong. Cincinnati has the better team in my opinion, and I think they will earn a big win. I think that the Bengals could be listed as favorites in this one. As slight underdogs on Sunday afternoon, I think that the Bengals have great value in this one.
