Cincinnati Bengals vs. Indianapolis Colts betting odds, preview
Spread: Colts -1, Over/under: 43.5, Moneyline: Colts -112 | Bengals -108
The Bengals were pronounced dead after Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending wrist injury in Week 11. Cincinnati lost to the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers in back-to-back games to fall to 5-6, but it bounced back with a massive win against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week as a 10-point underdog. At 6-6, the Bengals are still alive for a playoff spot if Jake Browning can continue his strong play.
Speaking of Browning, the rookie had his breakout game last week with 376 total yards and two total touchdowns on 32-of-37 passing. Yeah, that’ll play.
