Seahawks, Bengals Playing to the Over

The undefeated Cincinnati Bengals are starting to prove their doubters wrong and are understandably riding a high ahead of Week 5’s matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Shark Bites
  • The past three times the Bengals started 4-0 they made the playoffs.
  • The total has gone over in five of the Seahawks’ last six games against the Bengals.
  • The Bengals are 15-4-1 ATS in their last 20 home games.

Cincy (4-0 SU) has also been a lights out play against the spread, covering in each of their first four games of the season. The Bengals are scoring an average of 30.2 points per game (the fourth highest mark in the league), making it no surprise that the Over has gone 3-1 so far in their games.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is playing the best football of his career. The 27-year-old has 1,187 passing yards and nine touchdowns to go along with just one interception through the quarter mark of the 2015 campaign.

Seattle hasn’t looked like the same dominating team we’re accustomed to seeing, but as we’ve seen time and time again in the Pete Carroll era, the Hawks should not be taken lightly by any stretch of the imagination.
