Bengals vs Jets Prediction
The Bengals are coming into this game as a 10.5 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Jets are going to be missing their starting quarterback in this game and whether it is Joe Flacco or Mike White starting it really does not matter as both are going to get lit up by the Cincinnati defense. The Bengals are coming off of a game where they not only held Lamar Jackson and his Ravens to 17 points but they scored 41 points on them as well. The Jets just got smashed by the Patriots and their rookie quarterback Mac Jones by over 40 points. Burrow has 3 years of experience in the NFL now and he is going to eat this Jets team for breakfast in this game after their performance in their last game. The only bet to place in this game is on the Bengals to cover the spread here as they are going to smash the Jets.
