This week’s lines are from usatoday.com (as of Wednesday night).
ATS - Against the Spread; SU - Straight Up; O/U - Over/Under
Cincinnati at Philadelphia (+4.5)
Cincinnati is coming off a 20-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and need a win this week to stay in the playoff hunt. The Bengals shouldn’t have a problem moving the ball against the Eagles, who are allowing more than 26 points a game, 25th in the NFL. Wide receiver A.J. Green already has 79 receptions for 1,151 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. I expect him to add at least one more touchdown to his totals this week. In his last four games, running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has averaged 109 rushing yards and will be in for another good day against a defense that is giving up 119 yards on the ground. The Eagles shocked everyone last week, defeating Tampa Bay 23-21. It was their first win since Sept. 30. Rookie quarterback Nick Foles looks to be the quarterback of the future but will have a tougher go at it this week against a hungry Bengals team that wants to make the playoffs for two years straight.
Gimme the Bengals minus the points.
SEASON RECAP (W-L-T)
