NFL Betting Predictions: Denver Broncos vs Cincinnati Bengals
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos (4-3) look to keep on top of the AFC West with a win on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals (3-4). BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Broncos as -3 ½ point favorites on the road.
Peyton Manning has been absolutely brilliant this year. He has thrown for 2,113 yards, 17 touchdowns to only 4 interceptions. Three of those interceptions were thrown on a really bad day by the star QB in only his second game back from neck surgery. Last week Manning carved up the Saints defense for 305 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-14 win for the Broncos .
With Peyton at the helm Demaryius Thomas is molding into a star. Last week he had 7 catches for 137 yards and a score. Running back Willis McGahee had a great game as well against New Orleans running the ball 23 times for 122 yards and a touchdown.
The Bengals had a bye after their week seven loss at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-7. Cincinnati second year QB Andy Dalton had a rough night throwing for just 105 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. The Bengals offense was just outclassed against the Steelers defense who kept the Bengals most explosive offensive threat WR A.J. Green to just one catch for an 8 yard touchdown..
The Cincinnati defense was also outclassed in this matchup giving away 431 total yards, 264 passing, and 167 rushing yards. Allowing the Steelers a ridiculous 62% conversion rate on third down (10-16). The D only managed making only a few big plays with 3 sacks, an interception, and a forced fumble.
Look for the Broncos to cover the spread, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have been on fire and it would be wise to play out their streak. The veteran future Hall Of Famer is arguably playing better than any QB in football right now. The running game is benefiting from the passing attack, and their defense is also arguably better than the Steelers one that gave the Bengals all sorts of trouble the week before.
