Cincinnati at Dallas (9-18 @ 4:25 PM EST)

Line: Cincinnati -7
Total: 42

Due to the injury to Dak Prescott, the Cowboys will be starting Cooper Rush in this one and we cannot see him producing much success with how banged up Dallas is on offense. They have injuries across the offensive line and besides Cee Dee Lamb, they have relatively no experience at the wide receiver position.

Now they are asking a QB who has thrown the ball 63 times in his NFL Career to go and produce points against a very good and extremely underrated defense.

Last week vs Pittsburgh, the Cincinnati defense was constantly put in bad positions as their offense was turning the ball over at will. 7 of Pittsburgh’s points came on a pick six so that means in 70 minutes of game action (10-minute overtime), the Bengals only allowed 16 points despite constantly starting drives with poor field position against.

Dallas looked out of sorts last Sunday night against Tampa Bay in a game where they produced no points after their first drive of the game and when Rush came in, he looked like a deer in headlights.

This is a bad situation for Dallas against an 0-1 Cincinnati team that could have easily won a game last week despite turning the ball over 5 times.

The Bengals offense with Burrow and Chase leading the way should easily put-up points and to expect Cooper Rush and a banged-up Dallas offense to stay with them is a tall ask. Cincinnati has great matchups all over the field that severely favor them, and it is just too much for Dallas to withstand. They’d have to play a perfect game and get lucky in the process. That is not going to happen.

This should be a 14 to 21 point easy win for the Bengals. They are too good on Defense and too talented on Offense for Dallas to hang with. Expect a game like our free pick winner on Baltimore in week 1 1* Free Pick: Cincinnati Bengals -7 over Dallas
