Ahead of the marquee matchup of the day between the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys, two other afternoon matchups will get going in the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals will look to bounce back after their blowout loss last week on the road vs. the Seattle Seahawks, and in the AFC, the Bengals travel off their Week 10 bye to face the Raiders in Las Vegas.

You can read up on some of our favorite plays and props for the NFC matchup between Arizona and Seattle here. This article will focus on our top three prop bets for Cincinnati against Las Vegas.

The line has only moved slightly, with the Bengals going from -1 to -1.5 on the road. According to WynnBET communications, both the slight majority of the betting tickets and money are on the Bengals. 64.1% of the bets are on Cincinnati, and 60.9% of the handle is also on the Bengals.

With a nice high total of 50, who are the players most likely to exceed or go below their projected prop numbers? Here are my three favorites available at WynnBET Sportsbook.

Best Prop Bets for Bengals vs. Raiders

  • Hunter Renfrow UNDER 62.5 Total Receiving Yards (-135)
  • Tyler Boyd OVER 40.5 Total Receiving Yards (-105)
  • C.J. Uzomah Anytime Touchdown (+250)

Hunter Renfrow UNDER 62.5 Total Receiving Yards (-135)

Either the oddsmakers anticipate a shootout between these two teams, or that Hunter Renfrow will finally get some more yards after the catch.

The Raiders' slot receiver has caught seven receptions in three straight games, but has not gone above 58 yards in all three of them. In fact, you have to go all the way back to September for the last time Renfrow has gone above 58 yards, when he caught 5 receptions for 77 yards and a score against the Miami Dolphins.

The Bengals after a hot start have cooled back down and now have allowed the 24th most passing yards in the league. Even in a projected back and forth environment, Derek Carr spreads the ball around too much to get Renfrow past this number; even if he catches 7-plus passes.

Tyler Boyd OVER 40.5 Total Receiving Yards (-105)

Boyd was considered the most reliable Bengals target over the last few years, but this year it's been the complete opposite. After an 8-target game with 5 catches and 69 yards against the Jets on Halloween, Boyd was targeted just twice with one catch for 11 yards in their 41-16 loss to the Browns.

This week against the Raiders is a great opportunity for Boyd to go off in the slot. The Raiders got torched last week in the middle of the field by the Chiefs and Boyd is still playing more than 80% of the snaps.

C.J. Uzomah Anytime Touchdown (+250)

Uzomah has five touchdowns on the season for the Bengals, good for second best on the team this season. Meanwhile, the Raiders have been torched by tight ends all season, giving up the second-most receptions and touchdowns at the position.

Burrow has mixed in several looks both in the open field as well as in the red zone and these odds compared to the rest of the field are very advantageous.
