The Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Cincinnati for a matchup with the Bengals. The Jaguars come into this game with a 2-4 record. The Bengals enter this matchup, with a winless record of 0-6.
The Jaguars were only able to muster together 6 points of offense in a home loss to the Saints. All 6 points came from kicker Josh Lambo. Leonard Fournette had 20 carries for 72 yds on the day. Gardner Minshew II threw for 163 yds on 14/29 passing. On the season he has thrown for 1,442 yds and a TD/INT ratio of 9 to 2. The Jaguars are averaging 19.5 points per game.
The Bengals are coming off a 6 point loss on the road to the Baltimore Ravens. The Bengals got the scoring started in the game with a 92 yd kick return for a touchdown by Brandon Wilson. Andy Dalton threw for 235 yds on 21/39 passing. Auden Tate had 5 receptions for 91 yds in the game. The Bengals were out gained 497 to 250 in the game.

The Jaguars are 4-6-1 ATS since 2018 when they are the away team. Jacksonville is 3-3 ATS this season. The over in Jaguars games is 9-13 in all games since 2018. The over is 3-3 this season. The Bengals are 12-10 ATS since last season and 3-1 ATS this season as an underdog. The over is 2-1 when the Bengas are a home underdog since 2018. The over is 0-4 this season when the Bengals are an underdog.
The Jaguars are ranked 25th in rushing yds allowed. The Jaguars also traded cornerback Jalen Ramsey this week to the Rams. Is this the week the Bengals get into the win column? I think the Bengals try to get Joe Mixon involved early and establish the run. Andy Dalton plays good enough in this game to keep it close and I think wins it. Final score prediction, Bengals win and cover the spread 24-20. Be safe and take the points with Cincinnati.
