Both of these teams are still looking for their first win. This one’s gonna be messy.
The Bengals are just terrible, and JRoss 3 is out. Andy dalton is coming off a performance that left him peeling his sacked ass off the turf 8 times. I don’t like what Zac “The Sac” Taylor is doing so far.
But, I don’t trust Murray and the Cardinals either. This could be a shit show game so do not pound it. Let’s just say Bengals -4 because cardinals D is non existent…. Oh wait Cincinnati’s D is giving up EVEN MORE yards per play than the Cards.
Road Dog for This Dog. 🛣🐶
I’m breaking my Arizona OVERS play this week. I may have overestimated The Cardinal’s ability to put those late points on the board, and I don’t expect The Bengals to be helping out this week. Prove me wrong🙏
Don’t miss the picks. Follow me on twitter or reddit or BOTH!
The Dog loves a shit show and a Week 4 divisional matchup where one team walks away with their first win is surely to be one. Unfortunately The Dog won’t be watching this one.
Both of these offenses aren’t looking that great, but we do have some nice data to look at since they’ve both played the Niners and Seahawks this year already.
When you put side the beatdown that the Patriots laid on the The Steelers in week one, I have to take away that The Steelers seems to have just a little more pop.
The Bengals are the real reason to look at Pittsburgh covering the 4 points. I had a blast watching the games at Kitty’s in Cincy last weekend, but it was an eye opener. This Bengals team is a dog, and not in the good way.
Both of these teams sport bottom ranked defenses, but The Bengals terrible O-line will limit their ability to compete in this game.
Pitt covers 4 at home.
Cincinnati looked like ass last week against the Niners, but I hate to give so many points to a Buffalo team that I still think is mediocre. Yes they are 2-0 with two wins on the road, but they came against NYG and NYJ. Both of those teams have not proven to be a staunch competition by any means.
Without AJ Green to bail him out, don’t expect Andy Dalton to be a difference maker – I’m not. Joe Mixon was shut down last week with only 17 yards.
Bu, with Cole Beasley as his second best receiver, Josh Allen and the Bills aren’t exactly an offensive force to be reckoned with either.
Devin Singletary, the Bills promising rookie running back, would be the biggest impact player in my mind – but he is also banged up.
The Dog isn’t going to overreact to the Bengals showing last week. I’m also liking the fact that The Bengals are 4-1 against the spread going back to last season.
Zac Taylor in his first year at Cincy needs a statement game. I’m going to say they keep this close enough to cover, maybe even leave Buffalo with a win.
Devin Singletary is out for this one and the Bills are still expected to cover 6. Bengals with the points should be a money maker this week.
The Dog likes the 49ers in this one. The Jimmy G led O will put up enough points to win. And before we even get into my analysis as to whether or not the 49ers D can do enough to stifle the Red Rocket.
Let’s face it, Cincy was fortunate to be close in their Week 1 loss. Can’t chalk up the lack of production in the running game all to Seattle’s D, The Dog sees some real problems with the Cincy O-Line and that ain’t fixed in a Week.
Dalton did keep them in it with his arm, but there were some fortuitous circumstances mixed in. Dalton’s “Majestic TD Pass” as the CBS Crew put it, was a 55 yard TD strike to Ross which in my own opinion was a 50 yard prayer that should’ve been a pick or at the so very furiously batted away the Seahawks DB would’ve been charged with assault. The Dog says he don’t think they get served another deep strike on a silver platter.
Bullock tugged a 45 yarder that would’ve been the difference maker, and I hope for his sake he bounces back from that, but The Dog knows that the uprights are going to seem to tighten up just a bit if he faces a similar kick with the game on the line at home.
Back to the 49ers D. The Dog says yes – that’s all you need to know. They’ll do enough. Take the 49ers in this one.
