The Bengals are favored at home in this game but it is hard to make a case for taking Cincinnati with your NFL bet at Sbg global.
Bills No Longer Winless
The Bills finally got a win last week as they beat the Detroit Lions. It was not easy but Buffalo got the win they badly needed and deserved. The Bills had played very well in recent week and really should have gotten a win. It finally happened against the Lions. The Bills now have one fewer win than the Bengals and at least the Bills should care in this game while the Bengals may not.
Buffalo Owns the Series
You won’t find an NFL series very often that is more one-sided than this one has been. The Bills have won 9 of the last 10 meetings against the Bengals and they are 8-2 against the spread. The last time the teams met was three years ago in Buffalo and the Bills won 33-21. The last time the teams met in Cincinnati the Bills won 37-27 as almost two touchdown underdogs. The Bills will not be much of an underdog in this game in NFL betting because the Bengals are not a good team.
Last Year for Marvin Lewis
The Bengals were supposed to be a playoff team this season. They actually won the AFC North last year and they added Terrell Owens in the off-season. Owens is one of the few Cincinnati players that are having a great season. Most of the rest of the team has been terrible. Whenever a lot is expected out of a team and they play poorly the head coach gets a lot of the blame. Marvin Lewis may be on the way out.
Take the Points?
It is simply hard to make any case for taking the Bengals with your NFL bet in this game. Cincinnati covered the spread last week in the loss at Indianapolis but you never really felt that the Bengals would win the game. How motivated is Cincinnati going to be in this game against a one-win Buffalo team. At least with the Bills you know that you will get a good effort and that is more than you can expect from the Bengals.
