The under is 5-2 in Patriots last 7 games overall. The Bengals are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Cincinnati Bengals are playing their best ball of the season, and they're the hottest team in the league right now overall. The New England Patriots are solid defensively, and they're always attractive as underdogs at home, but I just can't get behind that offense and whoever is at quarterback. The Pats cant score the football, and it's a concern when playing upper level teams. I'll ride the hot hand and lay the field goal with the Bengals.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
