Week 13 of the NFL season concludes with the (5-6) Cincinnati Bengals visiting the (8-3) Jacksonville Jaguars on “Monday Night Football.”

After opening the season 5-3, the Bengals have lost three straight games to the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers — two of those games by single scores. Like the Green Bay Packers on “Sunday Night Football,” Cincinnati enters this game with its playoff hopes hanging by a thread.

Meanwhile, Jacksonville opened 2023 with a 6-2 record. After that, the team has won two of its last three matchups, collecting a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10 before defeating the Tennessee Titans 34-14 and the Texans 24-21 in successive weeks. After watching the Kansas City Chiefs fall to Green Bay 27-19 on Sunday night, the Jaguars very likely see this as a chance to get a leg up on the team that holds a head-to-head tiebreaker against them.

According to DraftKings Sportbook, the Jaguars are favored by 10 points.

Here are our picks for Monday night’s game. Be sure to cast your vote, too — and discuss the game in the comments!
