The Bengals (5-2) will host the Jets (4-3) on in Week 8 in Cincinnati. The Bengals are coming off a win against the Detroit Lions, while the Jets upset the Patriots in Week 7. With Cincinnati at home, the Bengals are considered 7.5-point home favorite against the visiting Jets, according to OddsShark.
The connection between Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green will need to show up against the Jets stout defense on Sunday. With a solid defense of their own, the Bengals need to keep producing points on the other end to cover the spread. If Cincinnati fails to consistently get touchdowns, the Jets may sneak up on them.
New York is led by rookie quarterback Geno Smith, who has been up-and-down this season. When Smith has been effective, the Jets have won. However, when he has struggled, the Jets have been beat. New York will need to count on their defense to upset the Bengals.
