Bengals-Falcons Spread

After opening at -5, the Bengals-Falcons spread has continued to dip down to -3 in favor of AtlantaNearly all the online and Vegas sportsbooks were reporting a line of either -3 or -3.5.  Action on this game at the current line was now balanced and Gambling911.com does not anticipate the spread moving below -3 before game time. 

Cincinnati comes into this game with a 2-3 record while the Falcons are at 4-2. 

Atlanta last week lost to Philadelphia on the road after winning a string of consecutive games.  In that game, the Eagles defense suffocated Atlanta’s offense, forcing quarterback Matt Ryan to throw away the ball on a few occasions before being sacked. Atlanta's defense yielded 474 yards.

The Bengals had a bye last week.  The week prior they lost 24-21 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  In that game, Carson Palmer surpassed 20,000 passing yards in his career, but his third interception of the game turned things in favor of the Bucs.

"We felt like we had the game in control, and those two plays sealed our fate in this one," Palmer said after the game. "I'm the quarterback of this team. I need to find ways to win the football game."
