Josh Allen and the Bills will head to Cincy to take on Joe Burrow and the Bengals for the Week 9 version of Sunday Night Football. Buffalo gave their fans a scare last Thursday, but they ended up coming away with a win over the Bucs.
Meanwhile, Burrow finally looks to be fully healthy and the Bengals are playing their best ball of the year. Who will come out on top? Check out our best bets for Sunday Night Football below.
The 5-3 Bills have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride over the last 5 games. It began with a 48-20 smashing of Miami before losing 25-20 over in London. They then came home and defeated the Giants 14-9 at home.
They then traveled to New England where the were handed a 29-25 loss and then last week they topped Tampa Bay 24-18. It is a bit unbelievable that Buffalo does not have a better record. They rank 4th in scoring with 27.8ppg and 3rd in points allowed at 17ppg. They rank 2nd on 3rd down with a 49% conversion rate. You would think they would be closer to 7-1 than 5-3.
The Bengals have turned things around after a rocky start. After losing 3 of their first 4 games, the Bengals have gone on to win 3 straight games. Their latest win was their most impressive as they defeated the 49ers on the road 31-17.
Burrow has thrown 8 touchdowns to 2 picks over his last 3 games. In terms of yardage offensively, the Bengals are averaging just 295 total yards per game which ranks them 31st in the league. Over the last 3 games, the defense is allowing just 16.6ppg to opponents.
We expect the Bengals defense to continue their strong recent play. Allen, who has thrown a pick in 4 straight games will be tested by the Bengals pass rush. Cincy has owned Buffalo in their last 5 meetings and we believe that trend is going to continue here with the Bengals playing some of their best ball of the season.
