Jets vs Bengals 2019 NFL Week 13 Spread, Expert Preview & Prediction

Written by on November 26, 2019

The New York Jets will look to extend their surprising winning ways when they hit the road to take on the league’s only winless team on Sunday. With the rebuilding Cincinnati Bengals in prime position to nab the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s NFL Draft, let’s find out if the Cincy will even try to put up a decent effort in this Week 14 matchup.

Why Bet On The NY Jets?

The Jets might have just four wins on the season, but there are plenty of good reasons to back them in this contest. First, New York has won three straight and while their wins over the lowly Giants and Redskins in Weeks 9 and 10 were solid victories in their own right, New York really looked fantastic in stunning the playoff-hopeful Raiders 34-3 on Sunday. And speaking of the number 34, the Jets have scored an identical 34 points in each of their last three games.

The Jets rank 20th in points allowed (23.5 ppg) and they’ve held each of their last two opponents to 17 points or less. Last but not least, New York has the big edge at quarterback and running back. Second-year signal-caller Sam Darnold has thrown seven TD passes and just one interceptions over the last three games.

Why Bet On Cincinnati?

The Bengals might be playing at home and they might be getting 3.5 points as underdogs, but there’s little reason to believe the Bengals are going to show up an actually try to win this contest. Cincinnati fell to Pittsburgh 16-10 this past weekend and they’ve been held to an identical 10 points in two straight and three of their last four games overall. The Bengals rank 31st in scoring (14.3 ppg) and a pitiful 27th in points allowed (26.5 ppg). Quarterback Ryan Finley is completely mediocre in every way and the Bengals actually need to lose this contest in order to not mess with their chances of getting the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jets vs Bengals Expert Analysis and Prediction

With the way the Jets have played the last three weeks and the way Cincinnati has played all season long, I’m completely stunned that the Jets are such modest favorites in this contest despite being on the road. The Bengals have gone a nearly winless 1-10 ATS in their last 11 home games while the Jets have gone an impressive 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points. This Week 13 pairing requires absolutely no thought whatsoever. The Jets will roll all over the beleaguered Bengals to get the win and ATS cover.

Pick: NY Jets 31 Cincinnati 14
