LINE: Houston -7
ATS PICK: Cincinnati
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
Let’s start with this – Cincinnati got by Pittsburgh because it forced three takeaways and Ben Roethlisberger threw like his arm was about to fall off.
It’s not like the Bengal offense did anything – it only came up with 230 yards – with just 78 yards through the air whether they were needed or not. However, now the team is playing someone its own size.
Houston has a funky way of turning the ball over a whole lot. The running game is non-existent, and outside of a few shockers, this thing has gone downhill fast with three straight loss.
The fear is the 30-7 Dallas win over Cincinnati – there’s a chance this Bengal thing really doesn’t work. However, Houston gives up more touchdown passes than anyone else, gives up more rushing yards than just about anyone else, and it doesn’t take the ball away at all.
You’re just looking for an NFL franchise to not lose a game by seven points to a miserable team with ten losses.
The Cincinnati pass defense isn’t awful enough to let that happen.
