Total: Over / Under 48.5
Bengals Player Prop: Joe Burrow Over 39.5 Pass Attempts.
Cincinnati is down 3 starting offensive lineman for this game, two tackles and a guard. It all happened in the last 3 weeks too. In those last 3 games the Bengals are averaging just 59.6 rushing yards per game. Last game (when all 3 were out) they averaged 2.8 yards per carry. It will once again be a struggle to run the football, forcing Burrow to throw. The thing is he won’t get much time to throw either, leading to a short and quick passing game. There’s also the chance CIN falls behind and is forced into negative game script. It’s going to be tough for Burrow to push it downfield with just 2 of his starting 5 OL. He’s also gone over 39.5 attempts in 2 of his last 3 games.
Buffalo Bills Player Prop: James Cook Over 51.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards
Cooks been more and more involved in the Bills gameplan in recent weeks. Going back he’s had 14 touches, 10 touches, and 13 touches. This is an explosive back that makes the most of his opportunities, averaging 5.7 yards per carry and 8.6 yards per reception. He’s gone over this prop in 2 of his last 3 games, failing to do so last week as he had an uncharacteristic day running the football (12 for 39, 3.3 YPC). He’ll get North of 10 touches again this week as Buffalo loves to get him the ball in space. He’s simply a threat to blow past this prop on any single touch.
