Carson Wentz is completing 58.8 percent of his passes for 512 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last seven games.

The Bengals are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on grass and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Eagles are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Bengals last 6 games overall. The under is 7-1 in Eagles last 8 home games. The Bengals are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Philadelphia Eagles have done nothing through two games to suggest backing in the favorite role and it's not like their schedule has been incredibly difficult. The Eagles defense has been horrendous to say the least. The Cincinnati Bengals have been a lot more competitive through two games and had their chances to beat the Browns on the road. The Bengals have also had extra time to prepare for this game after playing last Thursday. I'll take a shot with the Bengals and the free points.
