Cincinnati Was Worth the Price as Road Chalk Last Year

The 2015 NFL campaign was another year of regular season success and playoff disappointment for the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincinnati, who hasn’t won a playoff game in 26 years, will look to kick things off on a good note when they travel to New York to take on the Jets in Week 1 action on the gridiron.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Bengals' last eight games on the road after a loss on the road.
  • The Jets are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five games as underdog.
  • The Bengals are 6-2 SU and 8-0 ATS in their last eight games on the road.

New York City has not been kind to the Bengals in recent matchups. Cincy is 0-9 SU in their last nine trips to the Big Apple. Sportsbooks have set the J-E-T-S as 2.5-point underdogs with a total of 41.5.

After taking months to re-sign with the team, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will be back under center for New York. That’s good news for Jets fans and backers alike, as Fitzpatrick tossed 31 touchdowns for 3,905 yards while building an excellent rapport with wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker in 2015.

Cincinnati is bringing back largely the same squad that lost in the wild-card round to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Marvin Jones, who is returning to Ohio for a 14th season, has seven playoff losses to his name – the most of any coach who has never won a postseason game.

Betting on road chalk can be frowned upon in the sports betting world, but the Bengals were a profitable wager when in that spot last year. Cincinnati is 4-0 ATS in its last four games as road favorites.
