Colts-Bengals Spread

Who would ever have thought coming into this season that the Colts-Bengals Week 6 spread would be set at -7 favoring the Bengals.  The line on this game has not budged.  Indianapolis comes into this game winless and without Peyton Manning.  Cincinnati, on the other hand, is surprising quite a few people with their 3-2 record.  They have actually played a lot better than their record indicates.

Tony Bryant from BetOnline.com had this to offer about the Bengals chances:

Similar to what the Chiefs were able to do on defense, the Bengals will stack the box and force Painter and the Indianapolis offense to go over the top to beat them. Cincinnati held Jacksonville Jaguars’ running back Maurice Jones-Drew to 85 yards rushing, and rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert couldn’t do enough to make them pay. Bengals’ quarterback Andy Dalton has shown improvement in every passing week, and although he is still somewhat raw, he is not a liability in regards to the team’s ability to win games. Running back Cedric Benson has surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark just once in five contests this season, and could be overdue for a breakout game.

Indianapolis has won the last four in this series spanning five years but that was with Peyton Manning healthy.

The Colts are 1-5 Against The Spread in their last 6 vs. AFC.

The Colts are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

Indianapolis is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

The Colts are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

The Colts are 12-2-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

The Bengals are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC.

Cincinnati is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

Cincinnati is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.

The Bengals are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite of 3.5-10.0.

The Buffalo Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, as Josh Allen threw for 324 yards (with 128 of those yards going to Stefon Diggs). The Colts, despite coming in with the seventh seed, showed why they are a difficult team to stop. They rank in the top ten in the NFL on offense, defense and special teams, and the running of Jonathan Taylor kept Colt drives going, and it also took into the second half for the Bills to solve that Colt defense.
