The Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals meet Sunday in NFL action at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Arizona Cardinals are still looking for their first victory of the season. The Arizona Cardinals haven’t won a road game since December 2. Kyler Murray is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 1,071 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Murray enters this game with 169 pass attempts. Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk have combined for 542 receiving yards and two touchdowns while David Johnson has 21 receptions. The Arizona Cardinals ground game is averaging 92 yards per contest, and Johnson leads the way with 173 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Arizona is allowing 29.3 points and 443.3 yards per game. Jordan Hicks leads the Arizona Cardinals with 48 tackles, Terrell Suggs has 3.5 sacks and Haason Reddick has three pass deflections.
The Cincinnati Bengals are also looking for their first victory to rebound from an 0-4 record. The Cincinnati Bengals have lost four of their last five home games. Andy Dalton is completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 1,150 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions. Dalton has four interceptions in his last three games. John Ross and Tyler Boyd have combined for 611 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Auden Tate has 11 receptions. The Cincinnati Bengals ground game is averaging 49.5 yards per contest, and Joe Mixon leads the way with 149 yards on 47 carries. Defensively, Cincinnati is allowing 31 points and 401.5 yards per game. Preston Brown leads the Cincinnati Bengals with 31 tackles, Sam Hubbard has two sacks and William Jackson has one interception.
The Cardinals are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games on fieldturf, 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Bengals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in October, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 6-1-2 in Bengals last 9 games overall. The under is 14-6 in Cardinals last 20 games following a ATS loss.
The Arizona Cardinals are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games as a road underdog. The Cincinnati Bengals have failed to cover five of their last eight games as a home favorite. The Cardinals are dealing with a ton of injuries and are averaging just 15.6 points of offense in their last three games. On the other side, the Cincinnati Bengals are averaging just 14.25 points on the season and are watching Dalton turn the ball over left and right. While I guess the Bengals should have the edge at home and if they're going to win a game anytime soon, it would be here, but I'm not laying chalk with Cincinnati. If forced to pick this game between two losing teams, I want the side that's getting free points.
