Score: 16 - 23
Point Spread: -4½/-104 Cincinnati
Arizona has played well lately, but they faced St. Louis twice, Cleveland, Dallas at home where it has always struggled and San Francisco at home right after it clinched the division.
NOW - Heading east in cold weather December after a three-game homestand is not easy. The Bengals kept their playoff hopes alive with a win at St. Louis and heads home for the final two games of the regular season. Currently the Jets own the tiebreaker based on a better record against common opponents but it is up to the Bengals to get their own business taken care of. The Bengals matchup very well against big backs. This season they have faced eight running backs that fits Wells' category of a big running back (over 220 pounds) and the Bengals have allowed only 484 yards on 3.3 ypc which is very impressive. The Cardinals have been better of late, but they are still ranked just 20th overall and 17th in scoring. results, we are working with a good line on the home team. The Cardinals have not hit the road in a month and they have not acclimated well to the situation at hand here as they are 0-6 ATS in their last six road games in December, losing those games by an average of 2 touchdowns. Also, they are 0-7 ATS in their last seven road games in the second half of the season against teams with a winning percentage between .501 and .600, losing by 21.1 ppg. 10* GAME OF THE WEEK on the BENGALS.
