Free NFL Pick
The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Denver Broncos Sunday in a Game that kicks off at 1pm est. Currently, the Bengals are -3 -125 with a posted total of 41.
The outcome of the Game will likely hinge on Andy Dalton’s ability to connect with AJ Green frequently. The key is for Dalton to pick up chunks of yards and not rely heavily on the dink and dunk Game against arguably the toughest secondary in the league.If the Broncos can prevent Andy Dalton from connecting with the star receiver, the Bengals could be in for a long day.
The Bengals are second in the league in pass offense and are the poorest in rushing the ball. The two headed rushing attack of Bernard and Hill will have to help control the time of possession while avoiding coughing the ball up this week to give the Bengals any chance to pull out the victory.
The Broncos are led by second year North Western QB Trevor Siemian who has thrown three interceptions and only one touchdown this season. The Broncos’ QB has two pro bowl receivers to throw the ball to in Thomas and Sanders, but unfortunately they have not found the end zone in the first two Games of this season.
The Broncos have weapons on offense, but the QB has struggled in finding big plays thus far. It is not surprising that the new starting QB is utilizing tight end Virgil Green and running back CJ Anderson quite often while he reads through his progressions; this is common among new quarterbacks.
Both Green and Anderson come into the Game with 7 receptions a piece. At the start of the season most experts predicted the Broncos’ defense to carry the offense oNCe again this year, with the help of the pass rushing tandem of Miller and Ware.
The BroNCo’s star, Von Miller, comes into the Game with a blistering 4 sacks and Ware has also contributed with two sacks. However, Ware broke his forearm and will be out for the foreseeable future.
Our Pick – The fact that the Bengals can’t seem to run the ball combined with an inexperieced QB having to face that awesome Broncos defense leaves us with only one way to look. Broncos +3 +105
