NFL: Back Bengals, Ravens and Falcons all to win in terrific treble
The NFL season enters its fifth week, and Coral continue to offer great offers for their customers. Here we tell you why you should backing individual odds-on favourites Cincinnati Bengals, Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons all to win at an enhanced 9/4 price.
Undefeated Cincinnati can make it five wins this term with victory over Seattle at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Bengals have been in great form this season, being ranked fourth in the league on offense, and with a top 10 ranked defense on the other side of the ball.
Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton is playing as good as anyone at the position right now, and through four games averages an incredible 10.2 yards per passing attempt.
Seattle might be last year’s SuperBowl runners up, but they are not as good a team as the Bengals are right now. The Seahawks offensive line has been in disarray this season, with quarterback Russell Wilson forced to make plays with his legs rather than his arm.
Cincinnati’s defense has one of the meanest front fours in the league (they racked up five sacks on Kansas City last week) and they could give Wilson a really hard time here. That will make it tough for Seattle’s offense to keep up with them.
Bengals running back Jeremy Hill has five touchdowns this season, and is in form after scoring three times last week – punters could see value in backing Hill at 10/11 to score anytime on Sunday.
Baltimore can extend their all-time winning record over division rivals Cleveland to 25-8, when they host the Browns at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.
The ground game will be key for the Ravens here. Baltimore ground out a hard-fought triumph over Pittsburgh in week 4, that was built upon a strong rushing attack which piled up 191 yards on the ground.
Running back Justin Forsett notched up a fantastic 150 of those 191 total yards for the Ravens, and he will fancy his chances this weekend of piling on the misery for a Cleveland defense that is among the very worst in the NFL at stopping the run.
The Browns defense ranked dead-last against the run in 2014. They have improved only slightly this season, and are currently ranked 31st out of 32 teams.
It is going to be a tough ask for Cleveland to win if they cannot find a way to stop Forsett and the Baltimore rushing attack. Punters should not hold their breath for that to happen – and they can back Forsett to score first on Sunday, at odds of 11/2 with Coral.
Unbeaten Atlanta can extend their winning run to five games, when they host a Washington side that has yet to win an away game this season at the Georgia Dome on Sunday.
The Falcons are on a roll, with a high-powered offense that is currently the third-best in the league for points scored (34.2 per game). Atlanta is also the most potent team in the red-zone – converting 12 of 15 red-zone trips into touchdowns this season for an NFL-best 80% efficiency.
Falcons star running back Devonta Freeman leads the league in scoring with seven touchdowns for 42 points, and is available at a tempting 5/1 price with Coral to score first against the Redskins on Sunday.
Although on paper Washington’s run defense has performed solidly this season, they have yet to come up against an opponent as dominant as Freeman, and it remains to be seen how they will cope.
With the Falcons having the added dimension of a great passing attack, led by wide receiver Julio Jones (2/5 to score anytime), Atlanta should have more than enough to overpower Washington and claim the win here.
