NFL Betting: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Two teams that haven’t been kind to NFL betting aficionados this season hook up at Paul Brown Stadium when the Jaguars do battle with the Bengals.

Kickoff is set for 1:00 ET on Sunday.  These two teams last met in 2005, a hotly contested game which saw the Jags come out on top 23-20.  The game resulted in a push for sports bettors.  Jacksonville has won four straight in this series, going 3-0-1 ATS in the process.

The only chance the Jaguars (3-4, 2-5 ATS) ever had of taking the lead against the Browns came right at the very end of the game, but with just a few seconds remaining, the game-winning touchdown pass skipped off of the hands of WR Matt Jones to preserve a 23-16 home defeat for Jacksonville.

The NFL betting odds heavily favored the Jags, but it was yet another disappointing effort for HC Jack Del Rio and the gang in terms of football betting.  QB David Garrard threw two touchdown passes in the defeat, but the struggles of the running game were once again apparent.

RBs Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor only combined to rush the ball 20 times for 53 yards, and neither had a run of longer than five yards on the day.  What else is new for the (0-8, 2-6 ATS) Bengals?  Another game, another crippling defeat.  QB Ryan Fitzpatrick couldn’t get anything going offensively against the Texans.

He only threw for 155 and two picks.  Cincinnati only had the ball for 24:49.  The end result was a 35-6 defeat.  The NFL betting gods haven’t exactly been kind to the Bengals of late either, as they haven’t even come close to the football betting line in three weeks.  The Texans, Steelers, and Jets have outscored Cincy 99-30.

The Bengals haven’t covered a non-double-digit spread all season.  Their offense ranks dead last in the NFL in both total yards per game (229) and points per game (13).  It should come as no surprise that the Bengals are 8-point home underdogs in this NFL betting match-up.

The ‘total’ has been set at 40.  No matter whether you plan on betting on the Jags or trying to hit the pointspread jackpot with the Bengals, Sports-Gambling.com has all of your football betting options covered.
