Why Cincinnati Bengals are a good bet +6?
Cincinnati let the game versus the Seahawks get away from them. The Bengals had looked like an under the radar playoff contender in Week 1, but San Francisco’s offense was too much for Cincinnati to handle.
Now back home versus a much different offense, Cincinnati’s defense should step it up. The Bengals figure to be much better against both the rush and the pass on Sunday. If they can just contain Josh Allen and the Bills’ rushing attack, they’ll have a chance to win this one straight up as well as cover the spread.

Why Buffalo Bills are a good bet -6?
Two games in the books and wouldn’t you know it? The Buffalo Bills are undefeated at 2-0. The reason? Buffalo fields one of the top defenses in the NFL. The Bills only allow 15 points per from less than 300 yards per. Granted, the Bills got to play the Jets and the Giants in the first couple of weeks, but so what? This is the Bills first game at home this season and, let’s be honest, is Cincinnati that much better than the Jets or Giants?

Bengals vs Bills Final NFL Betting Analysis
Every team eventually comes back down to earth in the parity-laden NFL and that could be the case with the Buffalo Bills this week. Sure, San Francisco dominated the Bengals in Week 2. SF has an excellent offense and a good defense. In Week 1, Cincinnati took on a tough Seattle squad on the road and almost pulled off the SU upset win.
The Bengals hung with the Seahawks, which means they can hang with one-dimensional running teams like Buffalo. The Cincinnati Bengals aren’t this bad, they have an advantage at the quarterback position with Andy Dalton, and Buffalo’s best offensive player, rookie Devin Singletary, is listed as day-to-day. Go with the Bengals.
