Bet on the NFL The Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts this weekend. Both teams are coming off losses in Week 9.
Monday Night Football this week features the Bengals at the Colts. Cincinnati couldn't be happier with Terrell Owens, Jermain Gresham and Jordon Shipley, but Cedric Benson and Chad Ocho Cinco have been less than impressive. The Bengals have generated 100 yards per game to this point.
Ever since the Colts lost run stopper Bob Sanders to injury, they have been soft against the run. The Indianapolis Colts need to find another Bob Sanders type secondary player that is will to sacrifice his body and stopping the run.
The defensive line is still one of the best in the NFL with Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis but they are aggressive on the pass and over play the run. The Indianapolis Colts defense has a slight edge over the Cincinnati Bengals offense.
But when betting on sports take note: it's not a good idea to bet against the Colts offense.
As for the Bengals, their defense has struggled this season but they are still above average, having only allowed 220 yards per game against the pass. The middle is solid with one of the better linebacker groups in the NFL. The Indianapolis Colts offense has the edge over the Cincinnati Bengals defense.
Sportsbook lists the Colts as the minus 8 point home favorites in Week 10.
