Odds NFL: Bengals vs Falcons Week 7 NFL Betting Lines

October 23rd, 2010 by

bengals vs falconsAs we start up Week 7 of the NFL betting odds season there’s still plenty of football left to be played and plenty of storylines that are going to be re-written. But there is no way around the fact that the Cincinnati Bengals (2-3) and the Atlanta Falcons (4-2) have been terribly inconsistent and disappointing to say the least.

Both of these teams got off to very strong starts but have been up and down since. With the Bengals losing to the 1-5 Browns there was plenty of soul searching going on during the team’s Week 6 Bye and the for the Falcons, who got blown out by Philly (31-17), they probably wished they had a Bye this week.

When the two teams meet it Week 7 we’ll get to see which team is really the biggest disappointment.

Kickoff for this Sunday matchup is set for 1:05 Eastern Time and sbg global opened with the Falcons s as a ???-point favorite with an over/under total at ???.

The Falcons should win this game as they’ll be playing at home and so far, have been the better team this year. At 4-2 things could be a lot worse. The offense ranks 12th in the NFL gambling action (21.7 ppg) and the defense is an impressive 5th in the league (16.8 ppg) despite getting lit up by Philly’s passing game in Week 6.

The Bengals are near as good statistically giving up 20.4 ppg game on defense while scoring just 20.0 ppg on offense.

QB Carson Palmer has been a basket case behind center this year with a 78.3 passer rating and 6 INTs in five games. Chad Ochocinco has been a no show and even with TO playing at a high level this offense is going nowhere fast.

The Falcons D should be able to contain what little passing threat the Bengals possess and the Matt Ryan led offense should be able to score at least 3 TDs and seal the deal. Michael Turner has up and down this season but against a Bengal’s defense that’s giving up 111 yards per game on the ground he should have a good day.

Look for the Falcons to win this sport betting matchup.
