Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game, with the line from OddsShark.
Buffalo Bills (4-5) at (-2.5) Cincinnati Bengals (3-5-1), 1 p.m. ET
Mike: Bengals. Rex Ryan’s teams are 2-5 against the spread after a bye week for his career, which probably is the least surprising thing you’ll read all day.
Andre: Bills. If there’s one thing the Bills do well, it’s get to the quarterback (30 sacks, best in the NFL). They go up against a Bengals front line that can’t protect Andy Dalton, who’s been sacked 28 time this year.
Ricky: Bills. Dalton is banged up after taking a beating Monday night against the Giants. That could be problematic. If Buffalo puts pressure on Dalton, it could pull off an upset. Also worth considering: the Bills are 8-0-1 ATS in their last nine games coming off consecutive losses, which they’ll be doing this week.
