Bengals vs Giants Prediction & Pick
The Bengals hardly put forth their best effort last week and a lot of that has to do with how banged up the team is. From QB Joe Burrow to rookie cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt, several key Cincinnati players are less than 100%. With Zac Taylor hoping his team can go on another run to the Super Bowl, it won't be shocking if more Bengals starters sit out again.
On the other hand, the Giants' up-and-coming roster is hungry to win back-to-back games for head coach Brian Daboll. New York shined with 418 total yards against the Patriots, which included 177 rushing yards on 38 carries. While the Bengals nearly had a top-10 run defense last season, they did give up 112 yards on the ground to Arizona.
The Bengals will likely remain conservative here, opening the door for the Giants to win.
Final Score Prediction: Giants: 25 | Bengals: 18

The Bengals haven't been a great preseason team lately, going 1-5 straight up in their last six exhibition games. On the flip side, the Giants are 6-2 ATS in their last eight preseason games and have a good chance of covering the spread due to Cincinnati's injuries. Expect that trend to continue.
