The Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Santa Clara, California to face the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon in week 8 of the NFL season with the game kicking off at 4:25 PM ET and airing on CBS.
Cincinnati enters this game with a record of 3-3 following a 17-13 win at home against the Seattle Seahawks while covering the 3-point spread as a home favorite in week 6 of the NFL season. The Bengals scored 17 points while compiling a total of 214 yards offensively which included 185 passing yards and 46 rushing yards while allowing 13 points and 381 total yards defensively which included 323 passing yards and 87 rushing yards.

Joe Mixon led the team in rushing with 12 carries for 38 yards while adding three receptions for 24 yards. Ja’Marr Chase led the team in receiving, catching six of 13 targets for 80 yards.
The San Francisco 49ers enter this game with a record of 5-2 and are on a two-game losing streak following a 17-22 loss on the road against the Minnesota Vikings while failing to cover the 7-point spread as a road favorite in week 7 of the NFL season. San Francisco scored 17 points while compiling a total of 325 yards offensively which included 272 passing yards and 65 rushing yards while allowing 22 points and 452 total yards defensively which included 378 passing yards and 74 rushing yards. Brock Purdy led the team in passing, completing 21 of 30 attempts for 272 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions while adding 19 rushing yards on five attempts. Christian McCaffrey led the team in rushing with 15 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown. George Kittle led the team in receiving, catching five of seven targets for 78 yards.
BookMaker has the San Francisco 49ers listed as 5-point favorites at home against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon in week 8 of the NFL season. San Francisco has won five of the last eight and two of the last three meetings while going 4-3-1 ATS in the last eight and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Cincinnati Bengals are 2-3-1 ATS overall and 1-2 ATS on the road this season while the San Francisco 49ers are 4-3 ATS overall, 3-0 ATS at home, and 4-3 ATS as a favorite on the year.
San Francisco has been the better team in the series, winning five of the last eight games while going 4-3-1 ATS in those contests. The 49ers have also covered the spread in all of their home games this season going 3-0 ATS at home. I look for the San Francisco 49ers to end their two-game losing streak and to improve to 4-0 ATS at home which is why I am laying the points with the 49ers when they host the Bengals on Sunday afternoon.
