Saints-Bengals Line

With the Saints-Bengal line at either 6.5 or 7 in favor of New Orleans, sports bettors might want to strongly consider the “cold” factor for this game.  It’s something the dome-playing Saints are not necessarily accustomed to.  Temperatures will feel like 18 degrees on Sunday afternoon during this game.  So far, the gambling public is either oblivious to such likely conditions or else they just believe Cincinnati is one of the worst teams in the league right now and it simply won’t matter what the weather forecast holds in store.  As of press time Saturday afternoon, more than 85 percent of the spread action is on New Orleans.  95 percent of the money line action is on the Saints.  75 percent of those betting the total like the OVER 45.5.

Important trends to consider prior to betting on this game included the following:

The Saints are 10-3 Against The Spread in their last 13 road games vs. a team with a losing home record but are also 1-7 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.  The Bengals are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a home underdog.  Cincinnati is also 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

The Saints are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

The Saints are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

New Orleans has not performed well Against The Spread following a Straight Up win.  They are just 3-9 ATS. The Bengals haven’t fared much better.  They are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a Straight Up loss.

The Saints are 1-7 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.

New Orleans is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games in December. 

The Bengals are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
