Bengals vs. Cardinals Free Pick
GLENDALE, AZ (The Spread) - It could be a low-scoring game tonight between the Bengals and Cardinals when the two teams meet at 8:00PM ET in Arizona.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cardinals are 2.5-point favorites over the Bengals, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 42.5 points. Cincinnati enters tonight's game with a 0-2 preseason record while Arizona is 1-1.
Andy Dalton completed 8-of-8 passes for 144 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' second preseason again against the Jets last week. He torched a New York secondary that was without top corner Dee Milliner and is now 11-of-13 for 215 yards and the one score through his first two preseason games.
The Cardinals received bad news earlier this week when Darnell Dockett suffered a torn ACL and MCL in Monday's practice. Arizona's defense has now lost Dockett, linebacker Daryl Washington (suspension) and Karlos Dansby (free agency) from last year's front seven.
NFL Week 3 Preseason Pick: Take the under. Six of the eight preseason games on Saturday night went under the total as the defenses stepped up. Teams game plan more in Week 3 of the preseason, which tips the scales in the defenses' favor, even though the starters on offense usually play into the third quarter. Look for the under to hit again tonight in Arizona.
