The Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Jets meet in week three of the 2022 NFL season. Cincinnati has started the season slow after coming up short in Super Bowl LVI against the Los Angeles Rams last year. The New York Jets hope an off-season of new acquisitions and former Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco can improve on a 4-13 season in 2021.
Kickoff for the Bengals vs. Jets from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey is set for 1:00 P.M. ET on Sunday, September 25, 2022. The Bengals vs. Jets matchup will be broadcast on CBS in North America and can be streamed on NFL Game Pass internationally. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming matchup between Bengals and Jets so you can bet against their NFL Odds.
NFL Cincinnati Bengals vs New York Jets Betting Preview for Week 3
Cincinnati Bengals: A Team Better Than Their Record That Needs A New Game Plan
The Cincinnati Bengals and quarterback Joe Burrow haven’t had the same explosive, game-changing deep touchdown capabilities as last season yet. The Bengals have opened the season with an 0-2 record, losing by 3 points to the Pittsburgh Steelers (23-20) and the Dallas Cowboys (20-17).
For the Bengals to win and for your bets to payout, Burrow and the rest of the offense will need a strong game from running back Joe Mixon to help open the Bengals’ deep passing game.
As of publication, the Bengals are a -5.5 favorite on point-spread betting lines. Cincinnati should be the favorite in this game. While Cincinnati has lost two games by three points, the offense will need to be more productive to cover these kinds of point-spread odds.
The Bengals have the talent to beat the Jets by more than a touchdown; it’s a matter of developing and executing a better game plan.
Yes, if I am making a wager on this game, I’m leaning toward the Cincinnati Bengals to get their first win of the 2022 NFL Season.
New York Jets: Joe Flacco Holding it Down and Deceiving Defensive Stats
The New York Jets will rely on former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco to guide the offense against the Jets’ toughest competition. Flacco is in control of a pass-heavy offense until second-year starter Zach Wilson returns from a knee injury in week 4.
The Jets have opened the season with a 1-1 record, losing their opener to the Ravens 24-9. In week 2, New York defeated the Cleveland Browns 31-30 in a spectacular comeback/collapse, scoring two touchdowns in the game’s last two minutes to escape Cleveland with an unlikely win.
As of publication, The New York Jets are the underdog on moneyline odds, listed at +185, while the Bengals are a -232 favorite. Again, Cincinnati should be the favorite and win this game.
The Jets are building toward a brighter tomorrow and should be better than last year, but they are not at a similar level of development and progress as the Bengals.
The total points for the Bengals vs. Jets are set at 52.5, currently listed with even odds for the over and under (-110). These Bengals are the best defense that the Jets offense has played this year, which is one reason for their high ranking on NFL offensive rankings.
New York’s defense has improved from last year, but they’re not as good as their statistics suggest. I’m favoring the Cincinnati Bengals on the moneyline and the point spread.
