Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams 10/27/2019
The Bengals are the underdogs for this game with 9.5 points. They’re 0-7-0 ATS, and 2-5-0 bets on the total. They are fresh off a loss versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. Although they managed to chalk out 17 points, it was no match for the Jaguar’s 27-point effort. Joe Mixon improved on his game by scoring a touchdown. He carried the ball only 4 times for a total of 33 yards. QB Andy Dalton played his heart out and chucked in 1 touchdown. He did 22/43 with 276 passing yards, plus gave away 3 interceptions. He was ably assisted by Alex Erickson, who gave the team hope with his 8 catches. Thanks to him, the Bengals gained 137 yards. The Cincinnati Bengals were playing rather well, to the point of shutting down their opponent via defense.
The Bengals choked the opponent’s throwing game, limiting them to only 15 out of 32 throws. However, they were still forced to concede 460 yards. It was an unequal exchange to their own yardage gain of only 291 yards. They produced 65 plays, but these were not enough to gain them the yards and points needed for a win. The Bengals had a good thing going for them in their previous game- a strong defense. However, that can only last for so long against a team bent on offense. That’s exactly what happened: the Jaguars eventually broke through and out-scored them for the rest of the game. The Bengals have to perform on all fronts to try to win this one.
Players to watch: Andy Dalton (286 ATT 172 CMP 1923 YDS 8 TD 13 CAR 51 YDS 3.9 AVG), Joe Mixon (84 CAR 254 YDS 3 AVG 0 TD), Tyler Boyd (45 CAR 471 YDS 10.5 AVG 1 TD John Ross 16 REC 328 YDS 20.5 AVG 3 TDS), Auden Tate (22 REC 326 YDS 14.8 AVG 1 TDS), Alex Erickson (19 REC 246 YDS 12.9 AVG 0 TDS).
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams are 3-4-0 wagered on the over/under and 4-3-0 ATS. It’s no secret that they’re the chosen ones for the upcoming matchup. They crushed the Atlanta Falcons with a 37-10 scoring record. Jared Goff was all business, putting in 22/37 and 268 passing yards. He topped it all off with 2 sweet touchdowns. Todd Gurley II was rushing all over the field with 18 carries. Robert Woods was plucking balls from the air with 5 catches for 80 yards. The Rams ran for 36 out of 74 plays. They got their points from a variety of plays, which showed that varied tactics definitely work to confuse an enemy’s defense. The Rams certainly made their defense felt, even though they allowed an average 67% completion rate. The team only allowed 224 yards gained by the opponent as opposed to their own gain of 381 yards.
The Rams are picked as one of the top-scoring teams in the NFC West. While they only have an average win-loss scorecard, they’re still able to make their presence felt. They should not be underestimated as they can still stage a comeback all the way to finals at this point.
