Broncos vs. Bengals Pick
When the Bengals host the Broncos at 1:00PM ET on Sunday, will the score stay under the total?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bengals are 3-point home favorites versus the Broncos while the over/under currently sits at 41 points. Neither the side nor the total have moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers.
DENVER: The Broncos followed up their 21-20 victory against the Panthers with a 34-20 win last Sunday versus Andrew Luck and the Colts. Von Miller terrorized Luck, sacking him three times while also finishing with five tackles and a forced fumble (which was returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter). Denver covered the spread in both games, once as a 3-point dog against Carolina and once as a 6-point favorite versus Indy.
CINCINNATI: The Bengals have started 1-1 both straight up and against the spread. They played at the Jets in Week 1 and beat them 23-22 as a 1-point underdog but fell 24-16 as a 3-point underdog last Sunday in Pittsburgh. In that game, Andy Dalton threw for 366 yards on 31-of-54 pass attempts with one touchdown but got no help from his running game. Jeremy Hill rushed 11 times for 22 yards while Gio Bernard rushed five times for only 17 yards (although Bernard did catch nine passes for 100 yards and a touchdown).
OUR PICK: This should be a defensive struggle throughout. The under is 4-1 in the Broncos' last five games following an ATS win, is 5-2 in their last seven games coming off a win, and is 4-0 in their last four games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game. On the other side, the under is 5-1 in the Bengals' last six games overall, is 5-1 in their last six home games, and is 8-2 in their last 10 games versus AFC opponents.
