Two teams who are trying to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2015 meet when the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Denver Broncos at 4:05 p.m. ET Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High.

Both are 7-6 and in the thick of the crowded AFC postseason picture. The Broncos have won two of their last three games and four of the last six while the Bengals have lost back-to-back games and four of their last six.

Denver is favored by a field goal in a game that will be televised by CBS.

Bengals vs Broncos Odds

Team Moneyline Spread Total
Cincinnati Bengals +126 +3 (-118) Over 44 (-110)
Denver Broncos -148 -3 (-104) Under 44 (-110)

Odds as of December 18th at FanDuel.

The Bengals opened as 1.5-point favorites, but the line has swung sharply the other way. Regardless, Cincinnati is getting 65% of the public betting handle and 70% of the overall wagers.

It should be a beautiful December afternoon in Denver with a high of 56 degrees under mostly sunny skies and an 8-mph wind from the southwest.

           <h3>Bengals Offense vs Broncos Defense</h3> <p>The Broncos defense is equally effective against the run and pass, ranking 10th in the NFL in both categories. Thus, it seems likely the Bengals will try to mix things up offensively.</p> <p>Joe Mixon is second in the NFL with 1,036 rushing yards and has scored 14 touchdowns. However, he has been held to a total of 112 yards on 37 carries in the last two games.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ProBowlVote?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ProBowlVote</a> ends at midnight!

Higgins has at least 114 receiving yards in each of the last three games.</p> <h3>Broncos Offense vs Bengals Defense</h3> <p>Opposite of the Bengals, the Broncos have been able to use its rushing attack to great effect recently. Denver has averaged 193.0 yards passing and 161.7 yards rushing in the last three games.</p> <p>The ground game is headed by veteran Melvin Gordon III and rookie Javonte Williams.

The Bengals’ 29th-ranked defense allowed 49ers tight end George Kittle to catch 13 passes for 151 yards last week.</p> <h3>Bengals vs Broncos History</h3> <p>The teams haven’t played since 2018 when the Broncos won 24-10 in Cincinnati.</p> <p>Though the Bengals were victorious in their last trip to Denver in 2017, it was their first win in the Mile High City since 1975.
