October 15, 2023


The Seattle Seahawks will travel to Cincinnati, Ohio to face the Cincinnati Bengals at Paycor Stadium on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 PM ET with the game airing on CBS in week 6 of the NFL season.

The Seattle Seahawks enter this game with a record of 3-1 following a 24-3 win on the road against the New York Giants while covering the 2.5-point spread as a road favorite in week 4 of the NFL season. Seattle scored 24 points while compiling a total of 281 yards offensively which included 173 passing yards and 121 rushing yards while allowing 3 points and 248 total yards defensively which included 203 passing yards and 112 rushing yards. Geno Smith led the team in passing, completing 13 of 20 attempts for 110 yards and a touchdown. Kenneth Walker led the team in rushing with 17 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown. Noah Fant led the team in receiving, catching both targets for 63 yards.

Cincinnati enters this game with a record of 2-3 following a 34-20 win on the road against the Arizona Cardinals while covering the 3-point spread as a road favorite in week 5 of the NFL season. The Bengals scored 34 points while compiling a total of 380 yards offensively which included 317 passing yards and 93 rushing yards while allowing 20 points and 294 total yards defensively which included 166 passing yards and 142 rushing yards. Joe Burrow led the team in passing, completing 36 of 46 attempts for 317 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while rushing for seven yards. Joe Mixon led the team in rushing with 25 carries for 81 yards while adding four receptions for 13 yards. Ja’Marr Chase led the team in receiving, catching 15 of 19 targets for 192 yards and three touchdowns.

BookMaker has the Cincinnati Bengals listed as 3-point favorites at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon in week 6 of the NFL season. Seattle has won four of the last seven while Cincinnati has won two of the last three meetings while going 4-1-2 ATS in the last seven and 2-0-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. Cincinnati is 1-3-1 ATS overall, 0-1-1 ATS at home, and 1-2-1 ATS as a favorite this season while the Seattle Seahawks are 3-1 ATS overall, 2-0 ATS on the road, and 1-0 ATS as an underdog on the year.

Since their loss in week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams the Seattle Seahawks have won three games in a row and have gone 3-0 ATS in those matchups. The Bengals meanwhile have struggled this season and although they looked vastly improved last week offensively against the Cardinals, almost every team has looked good against the Cardinals this season. I look for the defense of the Seahawks to be a different test for the Bengals and I look for them to revert to struggling offensively in this matchup which is why I will be taking the points with the Seattle Seahawks when they visit the Bengals on Sunday afternoon.
