BEST BET CINCINNATI over Buffalo by 14
Sometimes there’s nothing better for an ailing team than a trip to the Dawg Pound. It’s there where confidence is renewed and sputtering teams often get back on track. After opening the season with three straight losses, the Bengals found their groove on the North coast last week and are now prepared to crash the ‘party-of-three’ as only 3 NFL teams have made it to the playoffs following 0-3 starts. The upstart Bills – with a coaching staff that features 10 coaches with Super Bowl experience – figures to oblige, too, as they’re 0-12 SU and 2-8-2 ATS in non-division games before a bye week. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is 17-2 ATS following an away game when facing a .500 or greater non-division opponent coming off an away game. THE CLINCHER: Bengals QB Andy Dalton is 12-2 ATS against opponents coming off a SU underdog win, including 8-0 ATS the last eight, and 9-0 ATS the last nine versus non-division foes.
