Bengals, Chargers Set To Clash In Game With Major AFC Playoff Implications

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/4/2014 4:55:44 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals are in control of their own destiny atop the AFC North. Coming off their bye week, they have five weeks to lock up the division. The Bengals’ lead in the division is down to 1.5 games after the Baltimore Ravens closed the gap with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night, and they’ll look to respond with a victory of their own after having an extra week to prepare for this online sports betting contest. It certainly won’t be easy as they travel to take on a San Diego Chargers’ team that is looking to keep its own playoff hopes alive with a win, in a game that will have major AFC postseason implications.

NFL Sports Betting Line: San Diego – 1

The Chargers won’t catch the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos in the AFC West, but a win would put them in a tie for the AFC Wild Card. This will mark the first time this year that San Diego will have its game blacked out, but it’s on Phillip Rivers and company to give their fans a reason to show up and cheer them on in a crucial game.

NFL Betting Preview: Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals will certainly try to take the crowd out of this game early, but part of that will be on an offense that hasn’t been nearly good enough of late. The Cincinnati offense has been held to under 270 total yards in three-straight games, and quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown eight interceptions in that span. A defense that ranks in the top-10 against both the run and pass was good enough to help make up for the offensive shortcomings in a win over the Cleveland Browns before the bye, but the Bengals have lost two of their last three and need to get back on track after an extra week to prepare.

The Chargers’ offense was certainly on track last week in a 41-38 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, as Phillip Rivers threw for 392 yards and three touchdowns in the victory. Rivers was nearly flawless against a Chiefs’ defense that has been excellent this season, and he will certainly have his hands full again this week against Cincinnati. Limiting turnovers will once again be among the keys, and San Diego would certainly benefit if they are able to force Dalton in to making mistakes, something they did last week against Kansas City when they forced two turnovers.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Cincinnati is coming off a bye, has an elite defense, and should be motivated with the Ravens right behind them in the division. However, it has become really difficult to trust Dalton under center, and given how Rivers and the Chargers performed last week in a tough environment at Kansas City, it makes sense to take them as the online betting favorite at home this week as they continue to push in the right direction. The Bengals are in a tough spot with Dalton, and it could get worse before it gets better.
