The Cincinnati Bengals have received 58% of the bets but 82% of the money so far in advance of their Week 6 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

Betting Impact:

The Bengals are currently +7.5 point underdogs, per BettingPros consensus odds. This type of game is a sharp bettor's dream, getting a bad team off a blowout loss against a good team the next week. In these situations, sharps often find the lines set by oddsmakers are over-inflated and feel that the general public will more often than not be on the favorites in these spots, so they take the contrarian stance and side with the underdog. They may be right, as outside of Cincinnati's blowout loss to Baltimore last week they have played surprisingly well in their other four games despite not pulling out many wins.
