The Cincinnati Bengals look to rebound from their tough Monday night loss to the Steelers when travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts. Indy started as an 8 point home favorite, but the line has been pulled down to 7 points at most sites. The squares are playing the Colts at better than 2:1, which means the sharps are backing the Bengals in this contest. The public always seems to back the Colts, and this week is no different. But consider fading this public favorite and taking the Bengals with the points. 5 Dimes and SportBet are still posting the opening number, so get the extra value if you can.

The New York Jets silenced their critics by soundly beating the New England Patriots last Sunday. The Jets will try to build on that momentum when they head to Miami to take on the Dolphins in an AFC East battle. The Dolphins opened as 1 ½ point favorites. Now books are putting the game anywhere between 1 and 2 ½ points, though most sites are at 1 point. The public is on the side of the home ‘Fins at over 60%. While Miami has played well, fading the public favorite in this situation feels like a good move.
