💪 Spread

Bengals +5.5 has a 50% probability

At this stage, our model can’t split the two teams at the spread but with slightly better odds on offer for the Bengals, that’s our suggested play.

If the line moves either way, it will be worth a bet for whichever side the move favors.


☝ Over/Under

Total points over 43.5 has a 50% probability

Another market that our model is very much seeing eye-to-eye with the sportsbooks. Our projected final score currently sits at 20:25 though, so the over should be more likely here.
