The Bengals have never won on the road against the Giants so take the hosts on the spread.
Cincinnati Bengals at New York Giants – Tuesday 01:30, Sky Sports 1
The Week 10 Monday Night Football fixture sees the Cincinnati Bengals travel east to face the New York Giants, who sit second in the NFC East. After a tough-luck tie in London against the Washington Redskins in London two weeks ago, the Bengals will be looking to bounce back after their bye week against a Giants side that has won its last three games and remains on pace to make the play-offs for the first time since 2011.
The Giants are dead last for rushing yards in the NFL, and the mistakes of their opponents have masked the inconsistencies of the Eli Manning-Odell Beckham Jr. passing game – this will be a boon to a woefully inconsistent Bengals defence. For the Giants defence, much will hinge on how effectively safety Landon Collins, who recently won his second consecutive NFC Defensive Player of the Week award, can shut down star Bengals wide receiver A. J. Green, who recorded over 100 receiving yards against Washington last time out.
The Bengals have never won on the road against the Giants, and they rank 25th league-wide in total defence this season, which helps explain why they have gone 0-8-1 in their last nine against teams with winning records. With that in mind, we think that OBJ and the Giants’ passing offence will be too strong against an inconsistent Bengals outfit. Back the Giants to cover.
