The biggest concern for the New Orleans Saints is a letdown after knocking off the previously unbeaten Rams and extending their winning streak to seven in a row. The Saints look to continue their roll with a Week 10 visit to the Cincinnati Bengals, who are coming off their bye and will be without leading receiver A.J. Green. That’s something to consider on the live betting lines at BookMaker.eu when playing this matchup.

New Orleans Saints -4
Cincinnati Bengals +4
Coming off their biggest win of the season in a showdown between NFC heavyweights, the Saints could be primed for a letdown when they visit the Bengals. And Cincinnati had a week off to prepare for this battle, so take that into consideration on the live betting lines at BookMaker.eu. The Saints exerted a lot of energy to overcome the Rams on Sunday, taking a big lead, watching it evaporate, and then scoring the final 10 points to win outright as a 2-point dog. New Orleans has won its last six games against the spread.
We expected plenty of offense between two of the three highest scoring teams in the league and they didn’t disappoint. The Saints proved how diverse their offense is by accumulating nearly 500 yards against the Rams with Drew Brees throwing for 346 yards and four touchdowns. That came a week after Brees had only 120 yards in a victory over the Vikings. With Alvin Kamara rushing for 82 yards, the Saints amassed 141 on the ground in a well-rounded effort.
The Saints haven’t been as efficient offensively on the road, falling below their season average in points in each of their last two away games. But they will face a team that struggled leading into its bye. The Bengals allowed more than 480 yards in each of their three games heading into the off-week and they face more of the same on Sunday.
Two weeks ago Tampa Bay gouged Cincy for 576 yards, the week before that it was the Chiefs putting up 551 yards and in Week 6 Pittsburgh amassed 481 yards. Those teams currently rank second, third and fourth in the NFL in total offense. The Saints come in ranked No. 7 with an average of 402 yards per game, and they have all their pieces in place. The Saints can beat you in a variety of ways. Brees passing, Kamara and Mark Ingram running, and the defense has shown an ability to get key stops and takeaways.
Kamara is having a monster year and his production hasn’t faded when Ingram returned from his suspension. He totaled 116 yards from scrimmage against the Rams and scored three touchdowns to up his season total to 12. Sean Payton uses him in the right situations and Brees relies on him to carry the load. The Saints will score points, and Kamara will be a big part of it. Look for Alvin to hit paydirt at least once against the sloppy Bengals defense on a prop wager at BookMaker.eu.
The Saints may be a little slow out of the gate and that’s the perfect time for the Bengals to take advantage. However, it will be difficult with Green sidelined by a toe injury. Andy Dalton will take a page out of Jared Goff’s book and look to exploit a secondary that has been the Saints weakest link. Goff threw for 391 yards and led the Rams back from a 35-14 deficit to tie the game in the fourth quarter. Dalton will throw the ball and the pace of the game will dictate how much. I can’t see the Bengals taking and holding onto a lead, so playing catch up is a likely scenario. And that will give Dalton an opportunity to eclipse his passing yards total on the live betting feature at BookMaker.eu.
Saints at Bengals Live Betting
The Bengals are on pace for a historically bad defensive season, and facing the Saints out of the bye isn’t the best situation. The first part of this matchup is ideal for a Saints letdown and hitting the Bengals on the first quarter and first half adjusted lines is worth the gamble. But don’t expect the Saints to stay quiet for long. Once they get rolling, the Bengals will be powerless to stop them. Second half scoring totals should increase, and the Saints will do most of the scoring.
