The Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams meet Sunday in NFL action at Wembley Stadium.
The Cincinnati Bengals could use a win here to rebound from a rough 0-7 record. The Cincinnati Bengals have lost nine straight non-home games. Andy Dalton is completing 60.1 percent of his passes for 1,923 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. Dalton has eight interceptions in his last six games. Tyler Boyd and John Ross have combined for 799 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Auden Tate has 22 receptions. The Cincinnati Bengals ground game is averaging 53.1 yards per contest, and Joe Mixon leads the way with 254 yards on 84 carries. Defensively, Cincinnati is allowing 26.6 points and 430.9 yards per game. Nick Vigil leads the Cincinnati Bengals with 60 tackles, Sam Hubbard has three sacks and William Jackson has one interception.
The Los Angeles Rams look for another victory after splitting their last six games. The Los Angeles Rams have won three of their last four non-home games. Jared Goff is completing 61.8 percent of his passes for 1,995 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Goff has one or less touchdown passes in eight of his last 12 games. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have combined for 1,007 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Brandin Cooks has 27 receptions. The Los Angeles Rams ground game is averaging 97.1 yards per contest, and Todd Gurley II leads the way with 311 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 23.4 points and 329.3 yards per game. Cory Littleton leads the Los Angeles Rams with 58 tackles, Clay Matthews has six sacks and John Johnson III has two interceptions.
The Bengals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in October, 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games on grass and 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Rams are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games on grass, 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Bengals are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the favorite is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Rams last 6 games in October. The under is 8-2-2 in Bengals last 12 games overall.
The Cincinnati Bengals have covered each of their last four games as a double-digit underdog. The Los Angeles Rams have covered six of their last seven games as a double-digit favorite. Trips across the pond are often tricky and it leads to odd results and usually sloppy games. You're never sure which tam to going to handle the travel well and it's why I usually lean toward the free points. However, the Cincinnati Bengals are a complete dumpster fire at the moment and at this point shouldn't even be trying to win games in hopes of getting the top pick in the draft. The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a decent performance last week and have a track record of covering as big favorites. I'll eat the chalk if forced to pick this game.
