Colts at Bengals In NFL Week 4 Preseason Matchup
When: Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 7:30 PM
Where: Paul Brown Stadium
NFL Odds: Cincinnati Bengals -4.5 / Over/Under: 39.5
Why Bet Indianapolis +4.5 Points
The Indianapolis Colts have suffered consecutive preseason losses, including their humbling 33-23 loss to Philadelphia the last time out. Stephen Morris led the Colts with 144 passing yards and one touchdown while Donte Moncrief and Mekale McKay combined for 107 receiving yards on seven catches. Running back Robert Turbin led the rushing attack with 24 yards on four carries while Lee Hightower led Indy with five tackles.
Why Bet Cincinnati -4.5 Points
The Cincinnati Bengals will take the field for their final preseason game after falling to Jacksonville 31-26 on Saturday. Backup quarterback A.J. McCarron led Cincinnati with 107 passing yards and one touchdown. Jeremy Hill and Cody Core combined for 81 receiving yards on two catches while Giovani Bernard rushed for 27 yards on three carries. Defensively, Chykie Brown led Cincinnati with four tackles.
Expert Prediction and Betting Pick
I’m going to get right to the point by saying that I like the Cincinnati Bengals to pick up the easy SU win and ATS cover as A.J. McCarron outplays Indy counterpart Stephen Morris. Not only has McCarron looked mostly exceptional this preseason, but the favorite in this AFC series is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
