Free NFL Picks: Bengals vs. Bills Predictions October 13th

Jeff Tuel Buffalo BillsCincinnati Bengals vs. Buffalo Bills Free Pick: With another new quarterback being forced into action under center, the Buffalo Bills are going to be in a mess load of trouble against one of the best defensive teams in the league, the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Knowing that a complete stiff is going to be starting this game, it’s no wonder why Buffalo is a 7 ½-point home underdog on the Week 6 NFL odds. The ‘total’ has yet to open as of Monday morning, but we know that the number is going to be relatively low when it does get released.

We know. We get it. QB Jeff Tuel stinks. He stunk at Washington State, and there’s no reason to think that he won’t stink here in the NFL as well. And how do we know that he stinks? QB Thaddeus Lewis, a man who has really done nothing but play on practice squads in his career, is going to get the nod over him on Monday. However, count us amongst the few that feel like Lewis has a shot to at least keep this game remotely close. Lewis is a mobile quarterback, and he should be able to step right into the fold with the first team offense and prepare in essentially the same formations that QB EJ Manuel was running before he got hurt. He’ll also have his two dynamic rushers to get the ball to in RB CJ Spiller and RB Fred Jackson, who are averaging almost 140 yards per game between them on the ground this year.

However, this is more of a bet against the Bengals right now than anything else. This Cincinnati team has only played in two road games this year. The first, the team choked away a two score lead against the Chicago Bears. The second was a brutal 17-6 loss to the aforementioned Browns. QB Andy Dalton hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in over eight quarters of game time, and the team went 14 straight drives without scoring a touchdown before its last meaningful drive last week against the New England Patriots. Say what you want about Tuel, but the rest of this team is still an NFL club. These are still professionals, and Ralph Wilson Stadium is still a tremendously difficult place to play football. We do think that it is a game that Cincinnati will find a way to win, but it won’t be pretty. We want those points on our side on the NFL betting lines.
