The Oakland Raiders will play against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. The game will be played at 1 p.m. EST and can be seen on CBS.
So what is the spread for the game between the Raiders and Bengals? The Bengals are an 8.5 point favorite with the over/under (total points) for the game set at 51.
The Bengals halted a four game losing streak a few weeks ago and blew out the New York Giants and Kansas City Chiefs the last two weeks. Considering the Raiders have allowed an NFL worst 32.2 points per game this season and the Bengals have allowed 23.7 points expect a high scoring affair on Sunday.
Oakland may do some scoring, averaging 20.8 points per game, but they have been blown out in recent weeks. Oakland lost to Baltimore by 35 points two weeks ago before losing to New Orleans by 21 last week.
At 5-5 the Bengals are still in the AFC playoff hunt. For the Raiders (3-7) the season has been a disspointment. After back to back 8-8 seasons the Raiders are in again sinking to the bottom of the AFC West.
Can Cincinnati win and keep the AFC playoff picture blurry?
Will Oakland find a way to cover the spread?

CINCINNATI - Andrew Whitworth was at the bottom of a large pile of very large people, and he could feel punches hitting his neck, back and shoulders.
The Bengals offensive tackle was there because Raiders defensive tackle Lamarr Houston had hit Andy Dalton late, and Whitworth took exception. Words were exchanged, then Houston lunged at Whitworth, then all sorts of heck broke loose...

Next up for the Raiders is one of the hottest teams in the AFC, with a trip to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals.

Steve Corkran tweets that Raiders RB Darren McFadden is unlikely to play against the Bengals this weekend.
McFadden has already missed a few weeks now with an ankle injury, but there was hope that he would be available for Week 12. Marcel Reece figures to see another solid workload against Cincinnati with Mike Goodson also dealing with an ankle injury of his own.
