The Cincinnati Bengals are on pace to become just the third team in history to finish a 16-game season winless. Will they finally end the drought in their home game this coming Sunday at home against the New York Jets? Or will the Jets keep on rolling?

Betting on the New York Jets (4-7)
Don’t look now, but the Jets have stitched together three-straight wins. That’s after they disarmed Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders in a 34-3 home win on Sunday. Jets quarterback Sam Darnold put up another solid performance. He went 20 for 29 for 315 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Darnold is playing well of late. Prior to the win over the Raiders, the former USC Trojans star passer for 293 yards and four touchdowns against just an interception in a road win over the Washington Redskins. Darnold should be able to extend his good run into the next week since Cincinnati’s defense isn’t offering much resistance. The Bengals are allowing 26.5 points per game. They are also surrendering the most rushing yards per contest, so expect running back Le’Veon Bell to have a productive night. Speaking of defense, the Jets have really turned it up in that area. They have allowed just 238.0 total yards over their last three games — the best in the NFL over that stretch.
The Jets are 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games.
Betting on the Cincinnati Bengals (0-11)
The Bengals continue to sink lower and lower. They remain winless through 12 weeks of the 2019 NFL season after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, 16-10. Quarterback Ryan Finley is far from looking like the next franchise signal-caller of the team. Against the Steelers, he went 12 for 26 for 192 passing yards and a touchdown, while also getting sacked four times for a loss of 34 yards. It’s not entirely his fault, as the Bengals’ offensive line has long forgotten how pass protection works. The Bengals have allowed the third-most sacks on the season with 40. One good takeaway for the Bengals from the Steelers game was the return to form of wide receiver Tyler Boyd, who was held down to zero receiving yard and a catch in the Week 11 loss to the Raiders. The following game, Boyd blew up for 101 receiving yards and a touchdown on five receptions and nine targets. Although their immediate future is bleak, the Bengals should draw confidence ahead of their matchup with New York from the fact that the Jets had lost to the also-tanking Miami Dolphins some weeks ago.
The under is 3-1 in the Bengals’ last four games overall.
The Jets win, 24-17.
