NFL football gambling fans again saw San Diego dig a big early season hole for themselves but this might be the year in which they run out of time in their annual NFL betting quest to rally from a large deficit.
The Cincinnati Bengals will host the San Diego Chargers in an AFC matchup that will be telecast on CBS with a start time of 4:05 PM ET. Sports-Gambling will have side and total odds on this game so be sure and open your account for action.
San Diego has a record of 8-6 both straight up and with the football betting lines while going over the total just 6 times. The Chargers must win as they are 1 game behind Kansas City in the AFC West race and its unlikely that a wild card spot will be open for the 2nd place team in that division in the strong AFC.
San Diego has won 6 of their last 7 games and 2 straight and is coming off a 34-7 home payout over San Francisco as they got the cash for the 6th time in 7 games and have not gone over the total in their last 5 games.
The Chargers ranks 2nd for overall offense and 1st for overall defense and were done in by another horrible start in September and poor special teams play which is reflective of coach Norv Turner, who is reminding fans why he was fired from previous head coaching gigs at Washington and Oakland.
Cincinnati has a record of 3-11 straight up and 5-9 with the NFL betting odds and is an even 7-7 split on totals this year. The Bengals beat Cleveland last week in a 19-17 home payout that snapped a 10 game losing streak. Cincinnati ranks 26th for scoring defense and 20th for scoring offense. Marvin Lewis may get fired as coach after winning the AFC North last year.
San Diego has gotten the money in 7 of their last 10 NFL football gambling matchups against Cincinnati including 2 straight and 5 of the last 6. The series has failed to stay under the total in the last 7 meetings.
