Football Bet – Philadelphia Eagles (5-4) at Cincinnati Bengals (1-8)

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Football bet odds have the Philadelphia Eagles as road favorites at Cincinnati in Week 11.

It looks like an easy win for the Eagles but the NFL has shown that rarely are things that simple.  Online football betting gamblers will be heavily backing the Eagles but history is not really on their side.

Football bet stats show that the Eagles are 3-4 straight up but 0-7 against the online football betting pointspread in their seven all-time meetings against the Bengals.  The teams don’t play that often but the Bengals have covered the football odds every single time.  The last time the teams met was in 2005, in Cincinnati and the Bengals won 38-10, easily covering the football bet number.

Sunday’s game is a must-win game for the Eagles.  They are in the tough NFC East and can’t afford a loss against the 1-8 Bengals if they want to make the playoffs.  Philadelphia played well last week against the Giants but New York was just a little bit better.  This week the Eagles must win versus the football odds and show they are a team that can dispatch of weaker opponents.  They did that two weeks ago when they went to Seattle and covered the football bet number.

The Bengals finally got their first win of the season two weeks ago when they defeated Jacksonville.  Last week the Bengals were on a bye.  Cincinnati still has very little offense and a weak defense but they will be getting big points at home in this online football betting matchup.  It is also worth noting that Philadelphia is just 6-8 laying points in online football betting on the road since 2005 according to football bet numbers.  The Bengals as a home dog though are a putrid 2-6 against the football bet odds since 2005.

Three of the last four meetings between the two teams have gone over the football bet odds.   The Eagles have been a solid over team on the road, going over the football bet pointspread almost 60% of the time since 2005.  The Bengals during that same time period are a slight under team according to football bet stats.
