Inconsistent Bengals Battle Redskins in Jolly Old England

The Cincinnati Bengals will be looking to record consecutive straight-up wins for the first time since Week 13 of last year when they make the journey to London to take on the Washington Redskins in an NFL Week 8 matchup at Wembley Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of the Bengals' last nine games as a favorite of 3.0 or less.
  • The Bengals are 9-1-1 SU and 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games at home after covering in their two most recent home games.
  • The Redskins are 8-1 SU and ATS in their last nine games as underdog.

The faltering Bengals offense received a boost last weekend, tallying 559 total yards in a decisive 31-17 victory over winless Cleveland, covering as 11-point home chalk. However, Cincinnati  has struggled to find the end zone away from Paul Brown Stadium, averaging fewer than 16 points per game in three straight SU and ATS road losses.

The Redskins saw a four-game SU and ATS win streak halted last weekend with a 20-17 loss in Detroit as 1-point road chalk. That defeat also ended Washington's impressive road run, which featured five straight outright victories as betting underdogs, dating back to Week 14 of last season.

The Bengals have won three straight over Washington, all as betting underdogs, including a 38-31 road win in 2012, and have held the Redskins to 17 or fewer points in three of their past five meetings.
