Indianapolis Colts vs Cincinnati Bengals (By: FairPlayBet)
We should be careful with selections when NFL early rounds are in question cause we can't know for sure what to expect from most of the teams. But, I have decided to add few more bets on the two I already posted cause in some of the games I see nice chance for profiting.
Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals is one of the round 1 games I am interested in. Both teams are coming from weak 2017 campaign. Bengals were 7-9 while Colts only 4-12 season ago.
Both have expectations to be better this time. Both also will look quite different. Andrew Luck is back on the quarterback position for the Colts after more than a year. This is definitely plus for host. But also Cincinnati is now fully healthy when their offense is in question.
Of course it is not easy to predict which team will make quicker positive impact on offense early in the season after all changes. But if nothing else, defense is where I trust much more to Bengals. That's why overall as a team I must give slight advantage to them.
Everyone expect one mainly even match so I think we are on the right side with these couple points on Cincinnati. Though, there was +3 earlier, now only +2.5 and even this on bigger juice odds. But, I will take gladly any points on the team whom I expect to win outright.
As for the previous mutual meetings, Bengals were without success here on the road in the most recent visits. In last five they are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS.
But overall on the road counting entire previous and finish of the 2016 season, they are 7-3 against the spread in last ten visits.
