NFL 2019 Week 8 London: Bengals vs. Rams Betting Prediction 10/27/2019
The Cincinnati Bengals have lost 7 in a row and can’t stand it anymore, welcome to this trip to London and the subsequent week off. The Los Angeles Rams will be looking for a fifth win that will put them squarely in the fight for the NFC wild card.
Cincinnati Bengals Betting Analysis
The end of the Andy Dalton era in the Cincinnati Bengals seems to be nearer and nearer. On Sunday before Jaguars launched 3 interceptions and their passes were wrong, overall. This team looks set to look for a quarterback in Draft 2020, one tailored to Head Coach Zac Taylor, who has not been able to count on the pieces to be competitive this year. The offensive line is no good, Joe Mixon is running for just 3 yards by carriage and Giovani Bernard even less (1.8). By air, the attack has Tyler Boyd and little more, because neither Auden Tate nor Alex Erickson is very good. But the worst thing is that the attack is not all the fault of the defeats, the defense of the Bengals has allowed more than 200 land yards in 4 of 7 games! They accumulate 9 sacks and have only forced 6 turnovers. We’re talking about a defense that ranks last in the league in allowed yards per game and is the one that allows more yards per haul. They have done a lot to stay close in the score, only 3 defeats by more than one touchdown.
Los Angeles Rams Betting Analysis
The Rams shattered the Falcons to get back on the winning track after 3 straight weeks of losing. The Rams’ ground offensive hasn’t walked all year, but this week they have the perfect opportunity. Rookie Darrell Henderson took 11 hauls against Falcons, and will likely share the burden again this week with Todd Gurley. The two are averaging less than 4 yards per haul. The closed wing Gerald Everett is the protagonist of the air attack seeing more and more targets, one more option for Goff in addition to his trio of open receivers. In defense, the Rams were inspired by the energy of Jalen Ramsey, despite having lost Talib and Johnson in secondary. The challenge this week is less, against the Bengals, so they will be able to settle down as the group of secondary defenders and then have one more week of rest and training together before the season brings them real challenges.
Malcolm Brown will remain out this week for the Rams along with Clay Matthews. For the Bengals, Dre Kirkpatrick, Lawson and Dennard still have physical problems.
The Rams should win by beating this week as well reflected in the betting line set at 13 points. They should score more than 30 points before leaving for their week off.
