Bengals to Cover – Fade the Jags

It’s only 3 weeks into the season and we can easily see these are two teams heading in different directions.

The Bengals have been playing well. Ja’Marr Chase has clearly improved the offense. Burrow loves the guy and he’s already one of the top deep threats in the NFL. It’s not just Chase though, the Bengals have good skill position players, especially against a weak unit like the Jags defense.

Jacksonville has been terrible. The coaching staff is rumored to be in turmoil. Lawrence and Meyer face their first Thursday night game – on the road.

I’ve been relying on the Jags fade in the weekly newsletter… Sometimes just take what they are giving you. Don’t overthink the situation and pass on a good betting opportunity.

Look… 7½ is always a problematic line to bet against. But… I’m going to continue betting against Jacksonville until they show signs of competitiveness… or the betting public catches on until the oddsmakers have to set bigger spreads.

Teaser Bets

Cincinnati -7 ½ is my favorite Teaser opportunity of the week. Teasing the Bengals to -1½ crosses both 3 and 7, which are the two most important numbers in NFL Betting. Use the Bengals as the the first leg of any teaser with the following teams Titans -1 ½, Vikings +8, Colts +7½, Saints -2, Ravens +7½.

Props

My list of best prop bets in order of best value.

  1. Joe Mixon under 2.5 receptions +110
  2. Joe Burrow under 1.5 TD passes +150
  3. Joe Mixon over 20.5 carries -110
  4. James Robinson under 3.5 receptions -115

PointsBet Boosts

PointsBet has a couple boosts available for tonight.

No Juice Pointspread Bets: Cincy -7.5 (+105) or Jags +7.5 (-105) – This is one of my favorite features of PointsBet. Juice free is huge edge and will payoff an additional $150 for me if Cincy covers!

Joe Burrow 225+ Passing yards and Bengals Win +120 (Boosted from +100) – I like it, but it’s not off-the-charts good. Burrow is projected around 255 passing yards but you also have to get he win. There’s a small edge in your favor, but its limited to $100 wager. Still a good action play.

Good luck tonight. Let me know what bets you’re on.
