Joe D'Amico's NFL 80% Thursday Night Bengals/Eagles Winner
Cincinnati vs. Philadelphia,
12/13/2012 20:20 EDT,
Score: 34 - 13
Point Spread: -4/-110 Cincinnati
Tonight's winner is Cincinnati over Philadelphia.
Cincinnati sits two games back of Baltimore and is a tiebreaker behind Pittsburgh for the final playoff berth in the Conference. The Bengals won and covered 4 straight before LWs heartbreaking 20-19 loss to the Cowboys. This is an athletic and talented squad that is very hungry for the post-season. The key to this matchup is their pass rush. The Cincy stop unit has a league-leading 42 sacks and has allowed a mere 12.2 PPG in their L4 outings. They will exploit the mismatch they have over the shaky Eagles OL and get to QB, Nick Foles and force TOs. Injuries, coaching rumors, and a 4-9 record is enough for Philadelphia to throw in the towel this season. Take Cincinnati. Thank you.
