The problems with the Rams this season are too numerous to discuss, but in handicapping their effort this week against the Bengals, it should be kept in mind that the Rams have shown consistency in poor play. Although some teams with losing records can play a good competitive game, this has not been the case with the Rams this year. With two or three exceptions, their games have not been good and there is no reason to expect them to challenge the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

The opening line was Bengals -3.5; an amazing number. It has since drifted up to -6.5 at the sportsbook, and this is more realistic. At a touchdown, the Bengals are probably still a good bet. If the spread continues to increase, it might be best to pass. The Bengals are not that consistent, and it is after all, a football game.
