Bengals Chargers Betting Predictions – Bengals Look To Extend Win Streak At Struggling Chargers This Sunday

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/28/2012 7:35:57 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have won three-straight games to climb back in to the AFC playoff picture. For their next opponent the San Diego Chargers, it has been a free-fall in the opposite direction over that span. The Chargers have lost three-straight to fall four games back of the Denver Broncos for the AFC West division lead, and will need to sweep the remaining five games on their schedule just to have a chance at making the playoffs. San Diego has lost each of its first two games against AFC North opponents, while the Bengals are coming off back-to-back online betting wins over the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders.

With three of their next five on the road, Cincinnati still has a tough road to make the postseason even despite the team’s strong play in recent weeks. The Bengals have peaked over the course of three-straight wins, scoring at least 28 in all three victories while allowing no more than 13 points over that sports betting span.

The key to Cincinnati’s success on offense over that stretch has been the play of second-year quarterback Andy Dalton, who has thrown nine combined touchdowns compared to zero interceptions while registering at least 199 passing yards in all three games. Dalton’s efficiency will remain the key to the team’s offensive success, and it helps to have a No. 1 receiver as solid as AJ Green, who had his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown ended at nine last week despite topping the 100-yard mark for the fourth time this season. The Bengals’ defense is ranked eighth in the NFL in passing yards allowed, so it will help that the strength of their units matches up against what the Chargers do well.

NFL Betting Preview: San Diego Chargers

San Diego has struggled to move the ball on the ground all season, averaging just 99.5 rushing yards per game, which ranks them 25th in the NFL. The lack of a consistent run game has forced the Chargers to rely far too heavily on quarterback Phillip Rivers and the passing game, which is something we saw again in last week’s overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens when Rivers was sacked six times. The defense hasn’t been much better either, allowing the Ravens to convert a 4th-and-29 from their own 37 with under two minutes to go in the fourth quarter on a drive that turned in to the game-tying field goal. That defeat actually marked the first time in three weeks that San Diego didn’t allow more than 30 points, but they still struggled when they needed to be at their best.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

It won’t get much lower for the Chargers than what happened at Baltimore last week, and now they will have to deal with a hot Cincinnati team that has the playoffs in its sights. The Bengals have played excellent football over the court of three-straight sports betting wins, and as long as they continue to protect the football on offense they will be hard to beat.
