Football point spread: Cardinals vs. Bengals, Tampa at Atlanta

Point spread and betting odds on the upcoming football games from Week 11 Arizona Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons.

Football point spread: Cardinals vs. Bengals, Tampa at Atlanta We continue our Week 11 football point spread and odds preview with two tough games, which could bring a substantial payout for the wise bettor. The first NFL game is the matchup between the Arizona Cardinals (4-5) and the Cincinnati Bengals (3-6). The Cardinals kept their NFC West battle alive by beating the Detroit Lions last week 21-31 at home and continue to breath down the neck of Seattle. But at the online bookmaker Bodog Sports the point spread on the Arizona Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Bengals is favoring the Bengals -3.5 points. Cincinnati is -170 odds favorite to win the game, compared to Arizona with odds +150. Cincinnati is 2-5-1 against the spread in its last 8 games and Arizona is 6-2-1 ATS in its last 9 games on the road.

 The Bengals are currently at the bottom of AFC North, but this will hardy discourage Cincinnati from winning the game this Sunday. Injuries, however, could turn the table. Bengals safeties Herana-Daze Jones and Madieu Williams had a limited Thursday practice, and so did CB Deltha O'Neal and DT John Thornton. Wide receiver Chad Johnson missed practice yesterday. At Arizona only safeties Aaron Francisco and Adrian Wilson missed Thursday's practice, while quarterback Kurt Warner did a full one and is expected to travel with the team to Cincinnati.

 But a few hours prior, the NFC South leaders the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-4) will travel the short distance to meet with the division's last Atlanta Falcons (3-6). The game is a must win for the Bucs, in order to extend their lead, as the Panthers and Saints have tough away-games this week and are not expected to win. The point spread on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons game is sitting at -3.5 points chalk Tampa Bay at the online betting firm Bodog Sports. Betting trends show that Tampa Bay is 3-7 against the spread in its last 10 games on the road, but Atlanta is 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games.

 Tampa Bay is coming out of a win against Arizona and so are the Falcons, who took the Panthers 20-13 in North Carolina. For the Falcons TE Alge Crumpler, QB Byron Leftwich, DT Trey Lewis and running back Jerious Norwood all did a limited Thursday practice. But the Buccaneers aren't in better shape, limited practice yesterday did running backs Earnest Graham and Michael Pittman, TE Alex Smith and wide receiver Michael Clayton. Tampa Bay's WR Ike Hilliard and LB Quincy Black did a full Thursday practice.
