Week number three of the 2023-24 National Football League season wraps up with a Super Bowl rematch in Cincinnati. As the Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football as both of these teams are searching for a crucial victory to get some momentum built up heading into the middle of the season. Both of these teams are coming into this game off of losses last weekend and they will both be looking to bounce back here in week number three of the season.
The Los Angeles Rams are coming into this game looking to bounce back after losing to the San Francisco 49ers last week. They will be looking to pick up their second victory of the season here on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Rams will have to be a lot more successful on the offensive side of the football after they struggled against the San Francisco 49ers last weekend. Los Angeles will have to play a lot better on defense and with the way the Cincinnati Bengals offenses look throughout the first two weeks of the season they have a solid opportunity to do so here on Monday night against the Bengals.
As Cincinnati has struggled to produce points throughout the first two weeks of the year. Los Angeles recently traded away starting running back Cam Akers before this week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals as they are moving forward with former Notre Dame football player Kyren Williams at the running back position. He scored a couple of touchdowns last week just like them losing to the San Francisco 49ers and he will be working to keep the momentum rolling here on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals as he looks to find the endzone again.

The Cincinnati Bengals have not looked like themselves after nearly going to the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season last year. Joe Burrow was clearly banged up and he is likely going to miss time at some point this season and it is still unknown if he is playing in this game as he is a gametime decision. It’ll be important for Cincinnati to get their playmakers involved in this one after they had Tee Higgins shutout in the opening week of the season before he bounced back last weekend in their loss to the Baltimore Ravens. If Cincinnati can succeed and giving their playmakers the football, they have a really good shot at winning this game, but it also depends on the overall health and performance of their starting quarterback, Joe Burrow as well.
If Joe Burrow ends up not playing for the Cincinnati Bengals here on Monday night, it could be a very long night for Cincinnati but with the way Burrow has performed throughout the first two weeks of the season it actually could benefit Cincinnati more in the long run, as it would allow him time to heal from the injury he suffered in the preseason. Cincinnati will be looking to pick up their first victory of the season here on Monday night at home against the Los Angeles Rams and they will have to improve and all three facets of the game if they wanna leave the field on Monday night with their first victory of the year.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Cincinnati is 0-2 against the spread this season
- The Los Angeles Rams are 2-0 against the spread
- The Bengals are 0-1 at home this season
It has been debated all week about the health of Joe Burrow and that has been a massive question mark surrounding the Cincinnati Bengals season thus far. I expect the Cincinnati Bengals issues to continue here in this game on Monday night. As I look for the Los Angeles Rams to grab the victory here in this game on Monday night on the road in Cincinnati to pick up their second victory of the season and cover the spread in the process as the underdog.
