The Cincinnati Bengals are on the road against the Seattle Seahawks and they are favored by 2-1/2 points. Will the Seahawks have a better offense this time around?
The Cincinnati Bengals could have faltered without Carson Palmer at quarterback, but they weren't always the most competitive with him, either. Instead, the Bengals find themselves 4-2 with a top five defense and a solid rookie quarterback in Andy Dalton. When they take on the Seattle Seahawks on the road this Sunday, the Bengals will be the road favorites. According to Odds Shark, the Bengals opened as 2-1/2 point favorites.
That line has stayed the same but the over/under has moved just a half of a point from 38-1/2 to 38 points. The Seahawks are coming off a 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns. It might turn into a struggle to reach that points total. Might the Seahawks want Tarvaris Jackson back as soon as possible? Charlie Whitehurst doesn't look like he'll be an adequate replacement.
