Jacksonville is looking to put an embarrassing 31-13 Week 3 home loss to the Dolphins behind them, but they are facing a determined Cincinnati team that can smell their first win of the season.  The Bengals are favoured by a field goal, while the total opened at 49.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Bengals have been in some high scoring affairs within their own conference recently, as the over is 5-1 in their last six AFC games and 4-0-1 in their last five games as the favourite.  Cincinnati is 4-1 ATS in their last five Week 4 matches and 2-1 ATS this season, while also hitting the under in two of three games this season.

The under is 8-1 in the Jaguars last nine games after giving up at least 30 points in the previous game, although the over is 4-0 in their last four Week 4 games.  As underdogs, the Jaguars are 4-1 ATS in their last five games.  This season the Jags have hit the over in two of three games and are 2-1 ATS

The most recent meeting between these teams was a 27-17 Jaguars win in Week 7, last year.  Gardner Minshew threw for 255 yards and a TD in the win, while the Bengals gave up three interceptions and were booed repeatedly at home.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Right from the start it was a game to forget for the Jaguars against Miami last week.  There is no official word yet, but it looks like linebacker Leon Jacobs could be done for the year after being carted off the field with a knee injury in Jacksonville’s opening drive.  Quarterback Gardner Minshew finished the game with 275 passing yards and no TDs, while being sacked four times and intercepted once.

The one bright spot for Jacksonville was rookie running back James Robinson, who ran for 46 yards and two TDs, while adding 86 receiving yards.  Robinson is averaging 70 rushing yards per game and now has three TDs on the season.

Cincinnati Bengals

Quarterback Joe Burrow is starting to look more comfortable and was able to pick apart the Eagles secondary last week, finishing with 312 passing yards and a pair of TDs.  Aside from that it was an ugly game that ended in a 23-23 tie with Burrow being sacked eight times.  Burrow, the No. 1 pick in the 2020 draft, is averaging 273.7 yards per game with a 64.5 completion percentage.

Tyler Boyd led the Bengals with 125 receiving yards against the Eagles, while Tee Higgins caught two TDs on five receptions with 40 yards.  Carlos Dunlap led the defense with nine tackles, while Logan Wilson and LeShaun Sims each recorded interceptions.
