Cincinnati Bengals -1.5 O/U: 45
The San Francisco 49ers and the Cincinnati Bengals will meet up in Week 2 NFL action on Sunday.
The 49ers are coming out of a solid victory over the Buccaneers in Week 1. San Francisco was down 7-6 at halftime in that one but surged for 25 second-half points for a 31-17 win.
In the Week 1 victory, San Francisco QB Jimmy Garoppolo put up 166 yards, a TD and a pick while Raheem Mostert rushed for 40 yards. George Kittle was the top Niners receiver with 54 yards on eight grabs.
Over on the Cincinnati side, they lost a tough one to Seattle in Week 1, falling 21-20. The Bengals were up 17-14 at the break but could only muster a field goal in the final two quarters.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton put up 418 yards and two touchdowns in the loss Week 1, with John Ross exploding for 158 yards and two scores on seven receptions.
The 49ers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine on turf and 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS win. San Fran is 1-4 in their last five road games and 1-5 in their last six in Week 2.
Meanwhile, the Bengals are 5-0 ATS in their last five overall and 7-2-1 ATS in their last nine in Week 2. Cincinnati is 1-5 ATS in their last six home games and 6-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
If you look a little closer at San Francisco’s numbers from the Week 1 win, they’ve still got some work to do. The rush yardage was spread out pretty evenly but the pass game was pretty uneven outside of Kittle and a few big strikes downfield.
As for Cincinnati, it was all airmail in Week 1, and though they didn’t get the win the Bengals get credit for playing tough in a difficult stadium. I’m going to go with the Bengals here, but it’ll probably be another close game.
