Coming off a pretty impressive overtime win over the Minnesota Vikings, the folks over at NFL Pick Watch have started coming around a little bit on the Cincinnati Bengals.
Despite being the money line underdog against the Chicago Bears, 56 percent of the experts on NFL Pick Watch are taking the Bengals straight up to win in Chicago.
The NFL is certainly a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately league, and the last memories we have of each team is Cincinnati kicking a last-second overtime field goal while the Bears offense looks completely inept with former Bengal Andy Dalton at quarterback. The team has given no indication they are going to switch to rookie Justin Fields anytime soon.
The Bears being at home certainly gives them a push ahead, making the picks closer, but the Bengals have already started making a few more believers after their Week 1 win. They can make even more if they can leave Chicago with a 2-0 record.
Against the spread, 69 percent of the picks are taking the Bengals +2.5.
