Philadelphia at Cincinnati
Sunday 12/04 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Cincinnati -1 (-115) (risk 1 to return 1.87) RESULT: WIN
Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz made a big, surprising splash when he started the season. The Eagles were 3-0 and he was clicking, and so was the defense. The offense scored 29, 29, and 34 points in the first three games, and Wentz looked like a sure rookie of the year candidate. Things came to a screeching halt after Week 3. The offense that produced no less than 29 points in the first three hasn't gotten above 24 since. A defense that allowed a grand total of 27 points in the first three has allowed 24 or more in six of their last eight. It is clear to see why the Eagle has landed, and just 2-6 in their last eight. Cincinnati, at 3-7-1, never really got started to begin with, and their string of five straight playoff appearances is going to end. Cincinnati, however, is a lot closer to getting things turned around than Philadelphia. Yes, the Bengals have lost three straight, but by a total of 10 points. This is just what the doctor ordered for the Bengals, getting a team that has lost its way at home. Make the play on Cincinnati.
