Indianapolis at Cincinnati

2 units on Indianapolis +3.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: win
2 units on Indianapolis +155 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 5.1) RESULT: loss
Marvin Lewis is 2-5 in preseaon play. The Bengals have been blown out twice this preseason to the tune of 16-57. They are not that bad a football team. It just goes to show that Lewis doesn't really care about the scoreboard. Indianapolis, we know, can put up points, even with second and third stringers. We've got a winning underdog team here against a coach who doesn't take preseason wins seriously. Oh yeah, did I mention that Tony Dungy is 6-1-1 ATS as a preseason underdog of greater than 3 points? One unit on Indy at +3.5 and one unit for the Colts to win outright.
