Posting em here as I place em
Raiders 1H +3.5 - Stats-wise these teams are pretty even across the board. Like both the QBs. Good RBs. Both Lines and back defenders don't appear to have a distinct advantage either way. Both teams will be fired up to play in this game. Bengals taking the first big step like this with Taylor/Burrow, at home, good stuff for them. Raiders obviously coming off that wild finale to get into the playoffs after a season with moments of huge adversity. Interim Coach just moved to Head Coach has got to be exciting for them and forward is the direction they're looking.
I like the first half here though with that 3 and very important hook. Bengals essentially took the week off and although the score was close enough @ Cleveland, they basically did nothing (182 total yds). They'll be excited but perhaps some early slippage in the execution department is possible. Lots of youngsters. Raiders will be cold but I think we can get to 10-17 points out of the gate. Nothing to lose, Carr should be slinging it and the Bengals weak spot is Pass D. Full game, I would think the Bengals eventually pull ahead and get a W.

Weather not scaring me here and considering the Over as well.
