Week 3 NFL Picks: 49ers vs. Bengals Prediction: September 25th 2011

September 22nd, 2011

San Francisco 49ers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Prediction: Over 40.5 (September 25th 2011)

The San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals are both sitting at a respectable 1-1 SU after two games as they get set to square off on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium in Week 3. The 49ers pounded the Seattle Seahawks 33-17 in its regular season opener to cash in as a 6-point home favorite, but came crashing back to earth in a big way in losing a heartbreaker to Dallas in Week 2. The Niners couldn’t hold on to an early lead and ended up losing 27-24 in overtime, though they did manage to play out as a Push against the spread as a 3-point home underdog. Cincinnati is also coming off its own discouraging Week 2 loss after losing a close battle with Denver 24-22 a week ago. The Bengals did manage to keep its perfect ATS record intact by narrowly cashing in as a 3-point road underdog to improve to 2-0 ATS and O/U. My pick on this Week 3 matchup of overachieving teams is a simple play for the Over. Touthouse NFL gamblers should know that both teams have easily topped their combined, four games so far this season. The Niners have played Over the O/U Total in four consecutive regular season games with Cincinnati playing Over the Total in three of their L/4 regular season games. I like this contest to play Over the 40.5-point O/U Total with both teams managing to top the 20-point plateau. Get more NFL football picks from our sports handicappers at Touthouse.com
