5* NFLX *BEST BET* on Green Bay Packers -3
The Packers have won at least 2 preseason games each of the past 3 seasons and have parlayed their preseason success into three straight playoff appearances, a division title and a Super Bowl title. The Packers are 0-2 in this year's preseason, and the last thing they want to do is enter the regular season without tasting victory.
Green Bay is starting to get healthier and its starters will see a lot more action tonight. The Packers have been worth a look in the third Week of the preseason as they are 4-2 in Week 3 under Mike McCarthy. The Bengals, meanwhile, are 2-7 in the third week of the preseason under Marvin Lewis.
The Bengals are 2-0 but they take a big step up in competition tonight. Consider that plays against home teams when the line is +3 to -3 that are coming off 1 or more consecutive wins and have a winning record in the preseason are 21-5 ATS the last 3 seasons. Lay the points.
