As we march into the 5th week of the NFL regular season, we are eager to see how things unfold for every team, especially the ones that are leading their conferences, as there are plenty of matches left, which means that all could change suddenly.
We are now going to the University of Phoenix Stadium, as we get the Cardinals hosting the Bengals, with both teams hoping to fix their path.

Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on the Cardinals?
The Cardinals come into this match with a win in this NFL edition. They got on the second week against the Cowboys, but 3 losses were handed to them by the Commanders, Giants, and, most recently, the 49ers.
Arizona got no favors in getting the Cowboys and 49ers in back-to-back weeks but had a great start to the daunting schedule with a big win against Dallas. However, Christian McCaffrey was too much for Arizona to overcome in Week 4. The team is still rebuilding but has shown promising spurts now and then.
Why Bet on the Bengals?
The Bengals have also been trying to fix a bad run so far, having lost to the Browns and the Ravens, before picking up a win against the Rams and then taking a beating from the Titans in their most recent match.
It has been a start to forget for the Bengals, who look nothing like a team that has been in back-to-back AFC title games.
The offense still looks rusty while the defense let one of the worst offenses in the league torch them. Now, it’s panic mode for Zac Taylor to get the season back on track.
Cardinals vs. Bengals Final Betting Analysis:
The Bengals have been one of the most underwhelming and uninspiring teams. Cincy’s downfield passing game — perhaps due to Joe Burrow’s injured calf — has been nonexistent. The rushing game is not much better, and the Cardinals have been playing tough teams.
We still think the Bengals could right the ship somewhat, simply because this team is too talented to continue struggling like this. They are favored by the odds, but their offense is exceptionally bad right now. They failed to reach the end zone last week for the second time this season. Ja’Marr Chase is frustrated and that’s not a good formula for a road win against the team who upset the mighty Cowboys.
We’ll go with a victory for the locals.
Go for a straight win at the Arizona Cardinals’ Moneyline. If you bet $100 at +132, you will gain $132 for a total payout of $232
