The San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals meet Sunday in NFL action at Paul Brown Stadium.

The San Francisco 49ers look for another road victory after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. The San Francisco 49ers have lost five of their last six road games. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Garoppolo has 116 pass attempts dating back to last season. George Kittle and Richie James have combined for 93 receiving yards and one touchdown while Tevin Coleman has two receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 98 yards per contest, and Raheem Mostert leads the way with 40 yards on nine carries. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 17 points and 295 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with nine tackles, Arik Armstead has one sack and Richard Sherman has one interception.

The Cincinnati Bengals need a victory here after losing a heartbreaker last week to the Seattle Seahawks. The Cincinnati Bengals have split their last eight home games. Andy Dalton is completing 68.6 percent of his passes for 418 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Dalton has two or more touchdown passes in each of his last five games. John Ross and C.J. Uzomah have combined for 224 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Tyler Boyd has eight receptions. The Cincinnati Bengals ground game is averaging 34 yards per contest, and Giovani Bernard leads the way with 21 yards on seven carries. Defensively, Cincinnati is allowing 21 points and 233 yards per game. Sam Hubbard leads the Cincinnati Bengals with 10 tackles, Carlos Dunlap has one sack and Preston Brown has one forced fumble.

The 49ers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games on fieldturf, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Bengals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 21-8-2 ATS in their last 31 games in September and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Bengals last 5 home games. The over is 7-3 in 49ers last 10 games on fieldturf.

The San Francisco 49ers have split their last 12 games ATS as a road underdog. The Cincinnati Bengals have split their last 14 games ATS as a home favorite. It's not easy to play back-to-back road games in this league, especially when fist starting the season, and the 49ers had moments last week where it looked like they were going to give the Buccaneers that game. The Cincinnati Bengals were a lot more competitive in Seattle than most thought they would be, and they can take a lot of positives out of that game. I'm still feeling these teams out, but I like what I saw from Cincinnati last week and believe that carries over at home. Give me the Bengals in this toss-up.
