Bengals vs Chargers Prediction and Odds: Bengals to win
The Cincinnati Bengals will welcome the Los Angeles Chargers at Paul Brown stadium on Sunday. The Bengals have been showing their worth by playing very nicely recently. They now have two matches winning streak.
The Bengals are really pushing harder for fixing their spot in the playoffs. They have shown their quality plays in some important matches in the season. The Bengals in the last game against the Steelers had good ball possession and that’s how good teams perform and win the games.
The Chargers suffered a loss in the last game against the Broncos. Their plays were getting intercepted and they did not allow them to have the upperhand on the game. The Chargers game is quite similar to the games of the Bengals though the Bengals are a better team.
The Chargers were able to win the opening game against the Bengals last season, but this is a whole different situation looking at the current form. The Chargers defence will be tested by the high scoring Bengals and it will be a difficult task for them to overcome them.
