QB Peyton Manning is not expected to see any action vs. the Bengals, but Colts’ football betting fans will be pleased that he was re-activated this week and has been practicing with the team. Good ‘ol #18 had surgery on his left knee in July and hopes to be back in time for the Colts home opener against the Chicago Bears on September 7th.
Last Saturday featured the Cincinnati Bengals as three-point underdogs to the New Orleans Saints, in a football betting match-up at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The NFL odds closed the ‘total’ listed at 41.5 points. The Saints kicked two field goals and scored a touchdown on a Ronnie Ghent one yard reception from Drew Brees, while the Bengals failed to put any points on the board the entire game.
Football betting fans backing the under in this contest were correct, as the total fell under by 28.5 points. In the 2008 NFL pre-season, the Bengals are last in the league in offensive production, putting up an average of just 10 points per game. The Indianapolis Colts were six-point road favorites against the Buffalo Bills in last week’s NFL Pre-season betting contest; the ‘total’ was set at 38.
With a 10-0 lead and less than two minutes to play in the first half, the Bills got a big play from CB Terrence McGee who recovered a fumble and scampered 68 yards the other way for a touchdown. This deflated the Colts comeback bid and ultimately led Buffalo to the 20-7 outright victory.
Buffalo NFL betting fans of this pro football betting match-up were outright winners, as were those who wagered the total would fall under the predicted number. The Indianapolis Colts are currently sitting as three-point favorites vs. the Cincinnati Bengals with the ‘total’ listed at 34.5 per the current NFL odds.
