Bengals vs. Packers (-3.5, 51.5 at Fox Bet)
Jason McIntyre from Fox Sports above / below: “I definitely shot over. I think over 51.5 is a clear bet here. It’s a Bengals side that can score points and without Jaire Alexander in the secondary for Green Bay, that defense of the Packers just isn’t that strong. “
Addition of Geoff Schwartz from Fox Sports, “I agree, and that’s a problem. There isn’t a lot of depth in the NFL in a lot of positions. When you lose a top corner like Alexander, there’s no save or save. next player when you lose All-Pro type players. That’s a big loss for this secondary. “
TO TAKE: Over 51.5 total points combined
