The Cincinnati Bengals are currently underdogs for the 2017 NFL season.

Week 10 NFL Expert Picks: Cincinnati At New York

Written by on November 11, 2016

When you see the primetime games on the calendar, the hope is that you get match-ups between teams that are essentially evenly matched. I think it’s fair to say that the Monday night game in Week 10 delivers that. The Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Giants are both teams that are sitting off the pace in their respective divisions for now, and both need a win here to not fall too far behind at this stage of the season. At 5-3, the New York Giants are in a better place than the Bengals, and they look like a team that could well be in the Wild card picture at the end of the season. The Bengals are underperforming badly this year, and their 3-4-1 record is just not good enough. The Bengals will be well traveled, but you must wonder how well rested. Their game last week was played in London, England, and now they must hit the road again this week. The two teams match up well, which may be why the bookies have this one as an online betting pick play.

Why bet on the Cincinnati Bengals

There were a lot of people who looked at this Cincinnati Bengals team as a definite participant in the playoffs this season, but they have some work to do if they want to get there now. This is a team that has only has one win in their last 4 games, and who are 1-3 away from home this season. They are coming off a tie in London versus the Redskins last weekend, but the good news is that they are starting to put some points on the board. They have managed 58 in their last two, outings, although you have to remember that 31 of those came against the woeful Cleveland Browns. A loss here may well signal the end of the Bengals season, especially with the Raven winning on Thursday night and the Steelers getting healthy again.

Why bet on the New York Giants

The Giants have been very quietly going about their business this season, and have put together a 5-3 record that has the sitting in second in the NFC East. The whole Odell Beckham Jr. Fiasco from earlier in the season seems to have been quieted down, and the talented receiver is now doing what he does best: catching balls and scoring TD’s. The Giants have been good at home this season, putting together a 3-1 record to this point, and they are on a bit of a hot streak too, reeling off 3 straight wins, although all of them were games that went down to the wire. This is a team that knows how to win the close ones.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

This has all the makings of a close one, which we have become somewhat used to with the Giants. New York are hot at the moment, and I think that momentum will carry them in this one.
