  • Today's Jaguars vs. Bengals matchup (1 p.m. ET, CBS) is offering one of the best betting edges of NFL Week 7.
  • Using our NFL power ratings, sharp action analysis and expert predictions, we detail how to play this game.

According to The Action Network’s NFL betting trends, bettors aren’t exactly running to the window to take a crack at today’s Jaguars vs. Bengals matchup.

In fact, this game is on pace to be the least-bet contest of Week 7, which isn’t all that surprising.

The Bengals are just painful to watch offensively, and while Gardner Minshew is fun, the Jaguars aren’t exactly must-see TV.


Odds as of Sunday at 10 a.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).


However, bettors don’t need to watch or even enjoy games to make smart wagers.

With this in mind, I plowed through a handful of The Action Network’s best betting angles — like Sean Koerner’s power ratings, sharp money analysis and expert predictions — and found each pointing toward the same play on Jaguars vs. Bengals.

Jaguars vs. Bengals Betting Pick 

While the point spread has popped back and forth between 3.5 and 4.5 throughout the week, our angles clearly point to value with Bengals.

Sharp Money

At 9:44 a.m. ET today, pros steamed Cincinnati at +4.5, snagging the hook off the important number of 4 in NFL betting.

That influx of smart money kicked this line down to Bengals +4 at PointsBet.

Power Ratings

Koerner makes this game Jaguars -2, which indicates a big edge on Cincy, especially getting through the key number of 3.

As I mentioned above, pros are already on the Bengals, and Koerner’s “true line” offers some insight as to why.

Expert Picks

The Action Network’s experts are also with the wiseguys on this one, with five different analysts lining up on Cincinnati as well.

With Bengals +4.5 still available across the market, the combination of sharp action, power ratings and expert predictions make Cincy one of Sunday’s best betting edges.
