Last week, the “smart” money was on the Buccaneers plus the points at home against the Bengals. We don’t mind playing the part of the sucker and we were on the dreaded road favorite. The Bucs took charge of the game and ran out to a 17-0 lead. Cincinnati decided to show up in the second half, scored the next 34 points and walked away with their sixth straight win and eleventh cover in twelve games. We’re happy to keep riding with Joe Burrow and the streaking Bengals, and we’ll take them to cover as slight road chalk again against a Patriots team coming off a devastating loss to the Raiders in Vegas. We’ll lay the wood with the Jungle Cats at BetOnline.
Prediction: Bengals (-3)
