Cincinnati Bengals NFL Betting Online

The Cincinnati Bengals find themselves in the exact same position they played themselves into over the last two years having failed to come out on top in their first two matchups of the NFL betting season. Guess where they ended up when it was all said and done? That’s right, the AFC title game – relax people, it’s early! While the Los Angeles Rams invade the ‘Natti having grossly exceeded NFL bettors expectations to this point of the season, again - it’s early! Regardless of whether it’s Joe Burrow or Jake Browning under center Monday night, the Bengals possess far and away the better of the two rosters in this author’s humble opinion. I’m personally buying in on the Bengals at the discounted rate and suggest anyone that wants to close the Week 3 festivities out a winner to do the same!

Cincinnati Bengals Week 3 Matchup

On Monday, September 25, 2023, the Cincinnati Bengals will host the Los Angeles Rams from Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, OH. Kickoff time for Monday Night Football is set for 8:15 p.m. ET with television coverage on ESPN. The betting line for this non-con tilt hit the board with the Bengals laying 7.5-points and the O/U lined 45.5. The initial line movement is predicated solely upon not knowing who will situate themselves under center. Burrow’s availability for the matchup with the Rams is in question which has the NFL betting market banking on Jake Browning and his zero career NFL starts getting the call if in fact he was forced to miss. Because of it, the number to beat is all the way down to -2 with Cincinnati receiving a laughable 26 percent of the bets and 16 percent of the money. Cincinnati is taking its sweet old time releasing any information with this game representing the finale of the Week 3 slate. As such, you can expect the pointspread to swell quickly should it be announced that No. 9 would in fact handle the starting duties. With LA only logging a 5.6 sack percentage (No. 24) and the Bengals offensive line only conceding a sack 3.96 percent of the time (No. 8), Burrow should have ample time to scope the field and pick apart a Rams secondary that’s played well over its head in allowing just over 150 yards per game (No. 5). Should that happen, this primetime affair could mark Joe Mixon’s coming out party with LA getting ripped to shreds on the ground (No. 24). If you ultimately believe Burrow starts this game, slam the Bengals right now! You won’t get a better price unless they fall into an early hole in-game.

Cincinnati Bengals Week 2 Recap

For the second time in as many years, the Cincinnati Bengals find themselves in a 0-2 hole after dropping a hotly contested 27-24 decision to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2. The end result proved to be a huge get for the online sportsbook with Zac Taylor’s squad taking in a whopping 66 percent of the bets and 76 percent of the money leading up to kick-off. The final margin of victory would’ve been even worse had Charlie Jones not ripped off an 81-yard punt return for a score that amounted to the lone touchdown put on the board in the first half. When putting the final box score under the microscope, the ‘Natti should’ve gotten its doors blown off with it getting outgained 415-282, losing the turnover battle 1-0, and allowing the Ravens to hold a 7+ minute time of possession advantage. While the offense managed to move the chains on 10 of 15 third down tries and extended a drive on their lone fourth down try, it only managed touchdowns on half its four red zone appearances. Though Burrow was only sacked once, it’s believed he aggravated the calf injury that kept him out of the entire preseason. He ended up playing to an 85.6 QB rating by way of completing 21-of-47 passes for 222 yards with a pair of touchdown strikes to Tee Higgins. His lone errant pass proved costly with it coming at the outset of the third quarter with the Bengals attempting to tally the go-ahead score. Joey Brrr obviously isn’t himself right now and it’s shown with the unit currently owners of the No. 30 pass attack.

The Cincinnati Bengals were founded in 1968 as an American Football League expansion franchise. They hold the distinction of being the last team formed in the old AFL.

The late great coach Paul Brown was the founder and first head coach of the Bengals. Brown was ousted by the Cleveland Browns in 1962 and stewed in exile until the Bengals' opportunity opened. Cincinnati became one of the most successful expansion franchises in pro football history. In their third season, Brown led the Bengals to the AFC Central title and set the stage for a perennial contender.

Cincinnati has never won a Super Bowl championship but has been to the big game three times. The 1981 Bengals lost to the San Francisco 49ers. The 1988 Bengals were defeated in the final seconds by the 49ers again. And then came the 2021 team that shocked the pro football and gambling world by making it to Super Sunday, only to lose another close one to the Los Angeles Rams.
