The Cincinnati Bengals will play the New Orleans Saints in Week 6 of the NFL regular season on Sunday afternoon at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Cincinnati Bengals are 2-3 this season after they lost to Baltimore by a score of 19-17 in their last game. Cincinnati took a one-point lead with just under two minutes to play, but Baltimore answered with a 43-yard field goal to win as time expired. The Cincinnati offense is averaging 21.6 points per game with 243.8 passing yards per game and 91.8 rushing yards per game. Joe Burrow has thrown for 1,316 yards, nine touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Bengals this season. Joe Mixon has rushed for 302 yards and one touchdown, while Ja’Marr Chase has caught 32 passes for 343 yards and two scores for Cincinnati. The Cincinnati defense is giving up 17.8 points per game and 327 yards per game.

The New Orleans Saints are 2-3 this season after they defeated Seattle by a score of 39-32 in Week 5. New Orleans blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead, but was able to score a touchdown with 5:22 left in the game for the win. The New Orleans offense is averaging 23 points per game with 242.8 passing yards per game and 136.2 rushing yards per game. Jameis Winston (questionable) has thrown for 858 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Saints this season. Taysom Hill has rushed for 228 yards and five scores, while Chris Olave (questionable) has caught 25 passes for 389 yards and two touchdowns for New Orleans. The New Orleans defense is allowing 25.6 points per game and 341.8 yards per game.

Cincinnati is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 October games. The under is 10-1 in Cincinnati’s last 11 games. New Orleans is 38-14 ATS in their last 52 October games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win. The over is 8-1 in New Orleans’ last 9 October games. Cincinnati is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

The Saints defense has had a rough two weeks and will have their hands full with a decent Cincinnati offensive attack. Cincinnati has been very good on defense, but New Orleans runs a unique offensive system, even with Jameis questionable. I think we are going to see a good amount of points in this game. I like the over.
