Cincinnati Bengals (+1.5) over WASHINGTON
“They” had the right favorite (Cincinnati, slightly) at the opening, but the public wouldn’t stand for it, as hosts were driven to -2. Respect how Alex Smith has looked settling in upon his return to sustained competition, but the Lions nosed out Dan Snyder’s team at the end, and it looks as if Joe Burrow’s air raid likely will be too much for the capital’s favorite team to handle. Bengals, for one unit.

Los Angeles Rams (+4) over TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS</h2
The visitors have been up-and-down after opening the season 2-0 versus lesser opponents. They’ve since alternated wins and losses — and they’re coming off a safe, well-rounded triumph at home over the Seahawks. The Rams have held up admirably, despite trips to Philadelphia, Buffalo, D.C. and Miami, breaking even in those. Confident they will continue to sustain their established standard. The Bucs can have issues with foes who rely heavily on air mail to move the sticks. The Rams handle the travel, for one unit.
Last week: 0-1-1. Washington (P), Bears (L).
2020 season: 8-11-1.
