The Cincinnati Bengals are favored to win the team’s Week 5 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. That, according to Bookmaker.eu who had the Bengals open as a one point favorite and have now moved the home team to two and a half point favorites.
Coming into the season, the Bengals weren’t expected to be as bad as they have been and the Bills weren’t expected to be as good as they have been. But, the NFL is often unpredictable and this game could be an interesting one in the Queen City. The Bengals will be chasing the team’s second win before heading into a Week 6 bye.
Oh, and don’t forget the Bengals lost to the Bills last year in the same game in which both A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard were lost for the year due to season-ending injuries. That should give the Bengals some motivation to win on Sunday.
Below are the opening odds, followed by some changes that have already been made since Sunday afternoon as well as some notes on the action.
