Bengals are 6.5-point favorites against the Jets

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Taking a look at the spread heading into week eight, the Bengals open as favorites against the New York Jets.

The New York Jets are the type of team that scares me. They feature the second-ranked defense and a rookie quarterback that's already earned accolades for his ability to generate game-winning drives -- only quarterback since the 1970 merger with four game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime in his first seven career games.

With their win over Thad Lewis and the Buffalo Bills, the Bengals are 14-10 against rookie quarterbacks during the Marvin Lewis era.

But New York's defense is similar to the one that shut down Cincinnati's offense several weeks ago. Then again, I'm routinely nervous about every opponent that the Bengals play; my Sunday afternoon anxiety levels are incalculable; especially against the Jets, where the Bengals have once in the previous ten meetings between these clubs.

Cincinnati will host New York as favorites against the spread, roughly around 6.5 points and even upwards to seven.
