The Cincinnati Bengals rarely win games in California. Yet their string of three wins, along with San Diego's struggles have Cincinnati listed as a favorite heading into this weekend's game.
Despite the fact that Cincinnati is 2-8 when playing games on the West Coast, there's something to be said about a three-game winning streak with Cincinnati literally blowing out their opponents.
According to Odds Shark, the Cincinnati Bengals are an early one-point favorite heading into San Diego, where the Bengals haven't won since 2003.
Other betting services have Cincinnati anywhere from a one point favorite to as high as two points. The Bengals are 5-5-1 against the spread this year (which means I've won five games on my staff picks through Bengals games).
