Fresh off their Monday Night home win over the Steelers the Cincinnati Bengals will host the Green Bay Packers Sunday with the Packers weighing in as -3 point road favorites at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. These two last met in 2009 in a Game won by the Bengals, in Green Bay.
The Packers are another one of America’s darlings when it comes to betting. The Pack always has backers and it’s no different this week. 79% of the wagers taken on this Game at 5dimes.com have come in on Green Bay. The public also feels as though the over 49 is a mortal lock as 96% of the wagers on that proposition have come in on the over. You know what that means, right? You guessed it. Take the Bengals and the Under!
We are going to side with the Bengals in this spot, but not just because the public is on the Pack (though it can’t hurt). We like this Bengals team this year and think they’ll have a say in things come playoff time. If we’re right, than they’ll have to rise to he occasion and win big Games at home. Sure, they beat the Steelers and their lifeless offense on Monday, but beating the Packers will tell us whether we are right about this team or not. Nothing strong and only at +3 though. Bengals +3
