Patriots and Bengals meet on Saturday afternoon, in a match valid for the 16th week of the NFL – there are only two weeks left until the end of the stage that precedes the playoffs.

The Patriots still have hope of advancing to the playoffs, but to achieve this goal they will need to beat the strong Bengals team and cheer for the Dolphins’ defeat against the Packers. The Bengals, Saturday’s visitors, arrive for this confrontation with confidence in the heights. The Cincinnati team has won the last six games they have played and will look to secure their place in the playoffs in this away match against the Patriots.

The last time they faced each other, was in December 2019, the Patriots beat the Bengals 34-13. Will the hosts win again? Follow our analysis of this match and learn all about both teams.

Why Bet the Patriots?

The Patriots still have remote chances of advancing to the playoffs, but the last few games haven’t shown a significant evolution in the team’s way of playing. New England has only won two of their last five games, and in the final round, they lost to the Raiders in California.

The New England Patriots only have a 50% success rate in home games. That is, of the 6 games played at Gillette Stadium so far, the team won only 3.

Quarterback Mac Jones has done his part and has already distributed 7 touchdown passes, while Brian Hoyer has 83% completions per game. The team is well served by the passers, but the moves are not being completed satisfactorily.

Why Bet the Bengals?

The Bengals will land in New England with a scary business card: they’ve won the last six games they’ve played. This great sequence will certainly have an influence on the game against the Patriots, who are experiencing a moment of instability.

The Bengals beat great opponents in the last rounds of the NFL: Buccaneers, Chiefs, and Titans. All these teams continue to fight for a playoff berth and balanced the game against the Bengals.

The Cincinnati team will be able to guarantee their place in the playoffs if they win this game. Judging by the good sequence of results, the Bengals have every possibility of being superior from the beginning to the end.

Final Betting Analysis: Patriots vs. Bengals

The recent momentum of the Patriots and Bengals is quite different. While the visitors have been facing opponents of the highest level – and won -, the Patriots have been fumbling against weaker opponents who are not in contention for qualifying for the playoffs.

The main bookmakers point to the Bengals as favorites. We agree with this prognosis.

Our guess is for the Bengals to win.

If you put $100 into the Bengals’ win, you could get $60 back for a total payout of $160.
