Joe D's NFL 75% Best Bet Winner
Cincinnati vs. St. Louis,
12/18/2011 13:00 EDT,
Score: 20 - 13
Point Spread: -7/-102 Cincinnati
Today's winner is Cincinnati over St. Louis. This is my NFL Best Bet Winner.
Cincy is one of the NFL's most improved teams while St. Louis is one of the league's most disappointing. Cincinnati needs this win to keep their playoff hopes alive. After winning 5 straight games, the Bengals have lost 4 of their L5. However, they did have to face the Steelers twice, the Ravens, and the Texans. In this matchup, they are much more stable on both sides of the ball. They face a 2-11 Rams squad that is averaging 11.8 PPG while yielding 25.1 PPG this season. They have lost and failed to cover 4 in a row, posting just 10.0 PPG. Their #1 and #2 QB's are both banged-up. On top of that, the team has nothing to play for. The Rams are 1-6 ATS their L7 games played vs. teams with a winning record and 3-14 ATS their L17 overall. The Bengals are 5-1 ATS their L6 games played against teams with a losing record and 6-1-1 ATS their L8 games played on the road. Take Cincinnati. Thank you.
