CINCINNATI BENGALS @ DENVER BRONCOS

The fourth of five all AFC clashes that have playoff implications this week sees two 7-6 sides vying for position amongst a close bunched group of Wildcard hopefuls. Cincinnati still has aspirations of winning their division, with the Ravens struggling with injuries to important players and a tough matchup with Green Bay coming up. Denver is trying to keep pace with the Chargers in second-place in the West. Can Joe Burrow & Co turn up the heat on the Ravens with a win on the road, or will Denver take advantage of home-field advantage to keep themselves alive in the playoff hunt? 

Second-year pass-catcher Tee Higgins has been in sensational form recently, with three 100+ yard receiving games in a row. The big-bodied former Clemson receiver has at least five receptions in each of the last three and also has two TDs in the same period. This Denver defense is one of the league’s best, so whilst I don’t expect an easy day for Higgins, I do feel like the lines are favourable considering his current form. 

Spread: Bengals +3.0

Total: 44.0

Game Prediction: Bengals 21-20 Broncos

Best Bet: Tee Higgins over 4.5 receptions & over 66.5 receiving yards @ 13/10 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
