Jets vs. Bengals 2013 picks and predictions: Cincinnati the majority favorite at home

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Most NFL experts are picking the Bengals to beat the Jets this week.

The Cincinnati Bengals host the New York Jets in Week 8. Cincinnati is a comfortable favorite to win at home, being picked by a majority of online experts.

The Bengals needed a last-second field goal to beat the Detroit Lions, 27-24, a week ago. They move to 5-2 on the season and have a two-game lead in the AFC North. Cincinnati is the only team in the division with a winning record after the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns both lost.

The Jets continued their surprising run last week, taking down the New England Patriots, 30-27. They are now 4-3 and sit just one game behind the Patriots with an important tiebreaker in hand.

Most NFL analysts are going with the Bengals in this game. Of the eight ESPN experts who submitted their picks so far, six are picking the Bengals, with only two taking the Jets. At CBS Sports, seven out of nine panelists took Cincinnati, with Jason La Canfora and Josh Katzowitz being the only votes in New York's favor. Finally, both experts at Yahoo Sports picked the Bengals, along with the majority of users in a fan poll.
