BEST BET CINCIN­NATI over Buf­falo by 14

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

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.
