Pick
8 CIN (-116) @ pinnacle

At 1 pm, our selection is on the Cincinnati Bengals + the points over Indianapolis.  The Bengals have won just once, but have been extremely competitive this season, as they've lost just one of their five games by more than five points.  But that was last week's 27-3 defeat at Baltimore, which ranks among the four best teams in the NFL.  This week, the Bengals will take on the Colts who have sprinted out to a 3-2 record.  But two of Indianapolis' three wins were against 1-4 Minnesota (28-11) and 0-5 New York Jets (36-7).  So, Indianapolis' scoring margin of +7.6 should be taken with a grain (or, maybe, boulder) of salt.  I expect the Bengals to once again be competitive, as they fall into several of my very best systems that play on certain teams off blowout losses.  Those angles have records of 113-36, 133-57 and 148-68 ATS.  Even better:  NFL road teams that scored 3 or less points the previous week have gone 80-42-3 ATS vs. .650 (or worse) foes, if our road team wasn't getting 10+ points!  And the Bengals are 24-7 ATS on the road as an underdog vs. .650 (or worse) opponents.  Take the Bengals + the points.  9* PLAY.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks.
