Bengals Never Win in Denver

Cincinnati hits the road for a second straight week, facing a Denver team playing on a short week after their Monday Nighter against Oakland.

And they arrive at a spot where they almost always lose. The Bengals are just 2-11 SU their past 13 trips to Colorado, but that hasn't stopped more than 61% of OddsShark voters from picking the Bengals at +3.5 (at TopBet) this Sunday.

Cowboys Getting Most Betting Action

Dallas may have blown its Week 1 road game against the Jets but oddsmakers feel they won't do it again, installing them as 3-point favorites at San Francisco this week.
