The Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams clash Saturday night in week 3 NFL preseason action at Paycor Stadium. The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a loss to the Texans. The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off a loss to the Giants.

The Los Angeles Rams have lost 6 of their last 9 preseason games. The Rams racked up 20 points and 275 yards while allowing 24 points and 274 yards. In the losing effort, John Wolford threw for 142 yards, while Bryce Perkins completed 11 of 14 passes. Trey Ragas led the Rams with 14 rushing yards and 1 touchdown, while Lance McCutcheon and Austin Trammell combined for 142 receiving yards on 9 receptions. Jake Hummel led the Rams with 7 tackles, Jonah Williams had 1 sack and Duron Lowe had 1 pass deflection.

The Cincinnati Bengals have lost each of their last 4 preseason games. The Bengals racked up 22 points and 272 yards while allowing 25 points and 423 yards. In the losing effort, Brandon Allen threw for 105 yards, while Jake Browning completed 10 of 16 passes.

The Rams are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on fieldturf. The Bengals are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Rams last 4 Saturday games. The under is 5-0 in Bengals last 5 games overall. The home team is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

I’m sure the Cincinnati Bengals will have some sort of motivation to get this win at home, considering the Rams beat them earlier this year in the Super Bowl. It won’t mean much, but there’s no doubt it’s a storyline heading into this contest. With that said, I’m not laying chalk with a Bengals team that hasn’t played a lick of defense through 2 preseason games. The Bengals have give up a combined 61 points and 733 yards. No, thanks, and things won’t get much better with nothing but backups here. Give me the Rams and the free points.
