Bengals at Coltsgame notes

  • The Bengals got bottled up in their 27-3 Week 5 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Cincinnati had only 205 total yards, committed three turnovers and QB Joe Burrow was sacked seven times.
  • The Colts offense had their own struggles in a 32-23 Week 5 loss to the Cleveland Browns. QB Phil Rivers threw two interceptions, including a pick-six in the third quarter, and scored only one touchdown. Indianapolis scored the other touchdown on a 101-yard kick return.
  • Indianapolis’ defense has been one of the standout units in the NFL. The Colts lead the NFL in opponent total yards and passing yards per game, and their foes are scoring the second-fewest points per game.

Bengals at Colts: Odds, betting lines, picks and prediction

Prediction

Bengals 23, Colts 17

Money line ( ?)

The Bengals (+300) are going to give the Colts (-385) all they can handle but I am PASSING ON THE MONEY LINE.

Cincinnati’s offense was a no-show last week but with no Leonard as Mike linebacker for the Colts, the Bengals should have more success on offense. That being said, the Bengals are a bottom-10 offense in points, total yards and rushing yards per game.

Against the spread ( ?)

The Bengals +7.5 (-115) are 3-2 ATS this season and really only looked bad against the powerhouse Ravens. The Colts -7.5 (-106) have an unreliable offense and injured starters on all levels of the defense.

Since both Cincinnati and Indianapolis have questionable offensive execution and efficiency, I’ll take the points.

I LEAN BENGALS +7.5 (-115).

Over/Under ( ?)

The Colts defense is off to a great start in 2020 and the Bengals defense held their own last week against the Ravens. Baltimore scored only 20 offensive points and the Bengals held Ravens QB Lamar Jackson to just 180 passing yards, with an interception and three rushing yards.

Rivers hasn’t lived up to modest expectations yet for Indianapolis. He has a 4:5 touchdown-interception ratio and the offense doesn’t look much improved from 2019. Rivers will be without his favorite red-zone target and the Colts’ leader in touchdown catches in Alie-Cox.

I expect the Indianapolis defense to make things difficult for Burrow and I don’t expect anything from Rivers and its offense. I LOVE UNDER 46.5 (-110).
