Following an injury-plagued season of setback, the 49ers look like they may get back on track for the 2019 campaign. San Francisco’s opening day win at Tampa Bay was not an artistic success but a win nonetheless. Counter to that is a Bengals team that is in full rebuild mode. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is striving to prove he is still a pro football betting asset. To their credit, the Bengals played hard in a tough opening day loss at Seattle last week. Overall Cincinnati still showed better than expected though the jury is still out.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Cincinnati Bengals Overview
Last week the 49ers scored a 31-17 offshore betting Payout at Tampa Bay as 1-point dogs. Defense proved to be the difference for the 49ers as they picked off Jameis Winston three times. Meanwhile, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was serviceable though not spectacular. Cincinnati lost at Seattle 21-20 but got the money as 9.5-point dogs. Specifically, Andy Dalton had a strong day with 418 yards passing and two touchdowns. Of great concern is a ground attack that could only muster 34 yards on 14 carries. Rushing game production must improve or Dalton will soon become a target.
