CINCIN­NATI over Detroit by 3

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

While go­ing through the mo­tions com­ing down the stretch, Cincy is 7-1 ATS as a home un­der­dog dur­ing the month of De­cem­ber un­der coach Marvin Lewis and are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in Last Home Games. The down side is the Bun­gles have been out­gained in their last 9 games and the ‘Red Ri­fle’ has mis­fired in the last two con­tests, throw­ing for less than 150 yards in each game. Still, the striped cats are 10-5 SU and 9-5-1 ATS all-time ver­sus NFC North op­po­nents, in­clud­ing 5-0 ATS when the foe is com­ing off a SUATS win. Th­ese two teams have met just twice over the past 10 years – with the Ben­gals win­ning both times – and since 1983, the Lions are 1-8 SU and 2-7 ATS in this series. Also, the Jun­gle Kings are a queen-like 1-7 ATS when they have a .500 or greater record and are com­ing off a dou­ble-digit di­vi­sion win. FYI: the orig­i­nal line on this game at Can­tor Gam­ing in Las Ve­gas be­fore the sea­son started was Cincy -3. With that, we’ll jump on the value with the red-faced (and red-haired) home dog as we dig down deep for a “win one for the Gip­per” role – in what is ex­pected to be Marvin Lewis’ fi­nal home game in Cincin­nati. Go Cats, go.
