The Line: New York Giants +2 -- Over/Under: 40.5
The Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants meet Tuesday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Cincinnati Bengals have three players ranked 87 overall or higher in wide receiver AJ Green, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and running back Joe Mixon. Throw in wide receiver Tyler Boyd who is an 83 overall and has a 92 acceleration rating, and the Bengals are a losing team in real life that actually is intriguing in the video game world. The obvious issue with the Bengals is quarterback Andy Dalton, who is 72 overall, and has a 73 awareness rating and a 75 speed rating. The Cincinnati Bengals have talent and are a surprisingly poor team you can win with in this game. However, in a computer simulation, you have to worry about Dalton and the questionable decisions he’s going to make with a low awareness rating.
The New York Giants are heavy offensive team with their top-five ranked players being on that side of the ball starting with running back Saquon Barkley who is a 89 overall with a 92 speed rating. Tight end Evan Engram is an 88 overall with an 88 awareness rating, while wide receiver Golden Tate is an 83 overall rating and 96 agility rating. The concern with the Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones brings in a 70 overall rating with a 72 awareness rating and 84 speed rating. Defensively, defensive end Leonard Williams is the highest rated player at 82 overall and defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson is 80 overall with an 88 strength rating. The New York Giants are light on game changing talent, but you can win with this team if you know how to control the offensive line and mix up a power running game.
I guess the Cincinnati Bengals have more higher rated players in key positions, as they have more ways to score on the offensive end and Geno Atkins is a special player on the defensive side of the ball who can disrupt things and make the difference in your bet cashing. The problem is these teams are almost in the same boat overall, and points are the side I want to be on in these simulations that seem like complete toss ups. It wouldn't shock anybody if the New York Giants lean on that running game and grind their way to victory.
Give me my two points with the New York Giants in this toss up simulation.
