Week 5 SNF: Bengals vs. Patriots Odds

The Cincinnati Bengals will be putting their unbeaten record on the line on Sunday night as they try to buck the recent NFL betting trends when they play on the road against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

The Bengals are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine games on the road after a bye week, and 1-3 ATS in their last four games against the Patriots - although they're 9-3 ATS in their last dozen games against New England.

The Patriots are rare home favorites, which has only happened nine times since Sept 23, 2001. In those games, the Patriots have won outright seven times and earned a payout eight times (8-1 ATS).

Another interesting angle is the Bengals playing off a bye week while the Patriots are on short rest after playing Monday. This is a rare occurence on the NFL schedule, it happened three times in 2013 with the rested team winning and covering each time.

However, going back 10 seasons before 2013, the rested teams were a disaster at 2-13-1 ATS in 16 games.
