QB Robert Griffin III is going to be making his debut in front of his hometown fans at FedEx Field in NFL betting action this week for his Washington Redskins when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals.
Last year, Cincinnati went 9-0 against teams that didn’t get into the playoffs and 0-8 against teams that did, including a first round loss to the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium. This year, that appears to be holding serve, as the Bengals beat the Cleveland Browns (not going to the playoffs) and lost to the Baltimore Ravens (probably will go to the playoffs).

The Wildcats are averaging just over 200 yards a game through the air, but they bring a powerful rushing attack into this contest that is averaging 251.7 yards a game.
