Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills Preview & Picks

Cincinnati are tipped to cover as an underdog in the NFL Playoffs.

The Bengals are on a roll and have been one of the league’s most reliable teams against the spread.

So while in-form Buffalo are the favorites, it would be no shock to see Cincy push them all the way.

  • Cincinnati Bengals are 12-3-0 ATS in their last 15 games
  • Cincinnati Bengals are 7-1-0 ATS in their last 8 road games
  • Buffalo Bills are 3-5-0 ATS at Highmark Stadium this season 
  • The Over has cashed in each of Buffalo’s last 4 games

Head To Head

  • Buffalo Bills lead the all-time series 17-15
  • Buffalo Bills won 21-17 when the teams last met in September 2019

Cincinnati Bengals Form

Cincinnati go into the Divisional Round in excellent form, having won each of their last nine games.

This streak started with a 42-21 win against Carolina before the bye week, and when they returned to action they showed no signs of slowing down.

The Bengals won 37-30 at division rivals Pittsburgh before heading to Tennessee to beat the Titans 20-16.

They then returned home to record their biggest win of the regular season, downing Kansas City 27-24 in a repeat of last season’s AFC Championship Game.

Cincinnati then beat Cleveland 23-10 before heading back out on the road to beat Tampa Bay 34-23 and New England 22-18.

Their Week 17 home game against Buffalo was cancelled, but they were able to wrap up the regular season with one more win, beating Baltimore 27-16.

Those two teams met again a week later on Super Wildcard Weekend and again Cincy came out on top, winning 24-17.

Buffalo Bills Form

Buffalo are riding an eight-game win streak into the Divisional round of the NFL Playoffs.

The Bills faltered in early November as they lost 20-17 at the New York Jets and 33-30 at home to Minnesota.

That defeat to the Vikings was their final loss of the regular season though, as they rebounded to win eight straight.

That run started with a 31-23 home win against Cleveland, and continued on the road as they won 28-25 at Detroit and 24-10 at New England.

Buffalo wrapped up the AFC East title at home, following up a 20-12 win against the Jets with a 32-29 victory over Miami.

The Bills then closed out their regular season with a 35-13 win at Chicago followed by a 35-23 victory at home to New England.

Their 13-3 record was not enough to secure a bye for Super Wildcard Weekend, but they were able to battle their way past Miami.

Buffalo blew a big early lead against the Dolphins, but a couple of touchdowns in the final six minutes of the third quarter proved to be decisive as they held on to win 34-31.
