The Cincinnati Bengals didn’t have long to bask in the glory of their first playoff victory in over three decades, as they have a date with the No. 1 seed Tennessee Titans in Music City this Saturday. The Bengals are one of two NFL franchises that have never won a road playoff game, but they certainly have hope with Joe Burrow at quarterback.
The main headline of this matchup is the return of star running back Derrick Henry, who is expected to make his first start since suffering a foot injury on Halloween. It remains to be seen what kind of workload he’s in line for and if he will look like the same back who carried the Titans to the playoffs last year, but his return will certainly provide some juice for the Titans.
Below, we will examine the different betting angles for this matchup. We will provide picks from both CBS Sports and SportsLine experts on this AFC showdown, as well as a few player props that we view as enticing.
