Could Bengals Be In Danger vs San Fran?

Bengals Green

It seems like just days ago this game would have been a complete laugher, but with Andy Dalton out of the contest between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers, we have a completely different looking game on our hands. The Bengals have also struggled against the 49ers as they are just 2-10 SU in their last 12 games against San Fran.

Shark Bites
  • The favorite is 1-7-1 ATS in the past nine games between these two teams.
  • The Bengals are 8-2-1 SU and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss.
  • The 49ers have averaged a pathetic 14.5 points per game this season.

It’s now the A.J. McCarron show in Cincinnati as Dalton will be out four-to-six weeks with a fractured hand. The Alabama alum has not started a single game in his career, but had extended play last week when he threw for 280 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Bengals’ running game has been inconsistent this season as they’ve rushed for 140+ yards in three of the last seven hames, but less than 100 in the other four games.

Since becoming the starter for the 49ers Blaine Gabbert has been consistent with a 63.2 completion percentage while throwing for six touchdowns and three interceptions. However, the protection is starting to break down again as Gabbert was sacked nine times last week against the Cleveland Browns.
