NFL betting on the New York Jets has become more popular this season with Brett Favre as the quarterback and that should be the case in this game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
NFL betting on the Bengals has not been that successful this season. It is a true mystery why Cincinnati continues to struggle. Coming into the season the Bengals were thought of by most NFL betting experts as a contender in the AFC but their offense was been very weak even though they have talent with Carson Palmer, Chad Johnson, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Palmer has been hurt this season and getting him back healthy should help, but there are some serious chemistry problems with the Bengals that need to be addressed.
The Bengals and Jets have met three times this decade in NFL betting. The Jets have won two of the three games although the Bengals won at home last year 38-31 in football betting. In the last 22 years the teams have played 10 times and the Jets are 6-4 straight up but they are only 4-6 against the NFL betting number. At New York, the Jets are perfect 5-0 straight up but they are only 2-3 against the NFL betting pointspread. Six of the games went over the NFL betting total including the last two.
In the past three seasons the Bengals are about .500 on the road as an underdog in NFL betting. The Jets are a 50-50 proposition at home laying points in NFL betting the past three seasons, although with Brett Favre leading the offense they are definitely more capable of scoring points.
The question for football betting gamblers is whether or not they want to take the big points with the Bengals. Last week Cincinnati was the biggest NFL betting underdog so far this season as they were getting 17 points at Dallas. This week’s NFL betting line is not that high, but football betting gamblers are still leery of taking points with Cincinnati.
