Reviewing the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Chicago Bears game, we here at Gambling911 were surprised to see Cincinnati the +3 underdog.  Why?


The ratings and math, even with Chicago's home field advantage added in, get us to Bears +2.5.  Yes, the Bengals should be favored.

The Bengals led against Minnesota at Halftime last week and won 27-24. They did have to win in overtime.

Nathan Beighle of FanSided writes:

"The Bears may need more than just their crowd. Especially with the Bengals allowing just 61 yards on 20 carries to a superstar back like Cook, fans should love Cincinnati as an underdog.

"Chicago didn’t get anything going through the air, thriving with David Montgomery on the ground. He ran for over 100 yards. Surprisingly, the Bengals run defense looked phenomenal.

"With Trae Waynes potentially returning, the Bengals should be able to stack the box."
