Can an Offensive Coordinator Change Wake Up Bengals’ Dormant Offense?

Excluding 2016, the Cincinnati Bengals have been a relatively competitive team in the Andy Dalton era. Two weeks into the season, the Bengals resemble anything but a playoff team. The offensively deficient Bengals have their hands full in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

MyBookie opened the Pack as heavy 9-point home chalk with a total of 44.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Bengals are 9-1 SU and ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive losses.
  • The Bengals are 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on the road.
  • The Packers are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games at home after covering in their two most recent home games.

After getting blanked in their home opener 20-0 at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, Cincy proceeded to get roughed up by rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans in an ugly Thursday Night Football display. Only hours after that setback, Cincinnati fired longtime offensive coordinator Ken Zampese and replaced him with receivers coach Bill Lazor.

Whether that decision will improve the product on the field remains to be seen, but Cincinnati’s failures at covering the spread against the green and gold are well known. In the Bengals’ last seven vs the Packers, they’re 2-5 ATS.

The Packers have had poor first halves in back-to-back contests after putting up a goose egg against Seattle in Week 1 and looking like the lesser team against Atlanta last week. A positive spot has been Ty Montgomery, as the ex-wide receiver has posted 203 total yards with three touchdowns in his first full year as the team’s starting running back.

Starting the campaign against talented squads like Seattle and Atlanta isn’t easy, so bettors can expect Green Bay to look like their usual selves against Cincinnati. Backers of the Pack will be happy to know they’re a perfect 8-0 SU in their previous eight home games in the month of September.
