Bet on the NFLNFL football odds have been beaten 6 out of 9 times by the Cincinnati Bengals while the Oakland Raiders have a football betting mark of 4-5 against the spread. NFL football odds favor the Bengals to win the AFC North after their 18-12 football betting win at Pittsburgh last week as 6.5-point road dogs.
It was the Bengals most impressive win yet with the NFL football odds as defeating the defending Super Bowl champions and their divisional arch rival gives them enhanced football betting credibility. Cincinnati is now 7-2 straight up and has covered the online betting line in 3 consecutive games. The Bengals are 3-1 with the NFL football odds on the road this year.
The Raiders are 2-7 straight up and have lost 5 out of their last 7 games with the NFL football odds. Oakland is coming off a 10-16 loss to the NFL football odds as 1-point home favorites against the Kansas City Chiefs last week.
The Oakland Raiders have one of the worst offenses in the league as they rank 31st with the NFL football odds for scoring. Quarterback JaMarcus Russell has been an embarrassment this year with a QB rating of 47.9 and a 2/9 touchdown to interception ratio. Head coach Tom Cable finally had enough in last week’s loss to the NFL football odds as he benched Russell in favor of Bruce Gradkowski. The Raiders are undecided who will start at QB against the Bengals.
“I explained to him (Russell) when I took him out of the game on the sideline, the last two throws were all over the place,” said Cable. “Just a number of mental errors and misreads and so I made the change and it is what it is.”
