Rams vs. Bengals Picks and Predictions
All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook unless stated otherwise.
Rams +105, Bengals -125
Soppe: WR Tutu Atwell has 17 targets so far to go along with a 14.4-yard average depth of target. That gives him the quantity/quality target profile that we love.

The Bengals have allowed a 30-yard catch to the secondary option in the opponent’s passing game in both games this season (Cleveland WR Elijah Moore in Week 1 and Baltimore WR Zay Flowers in Week 2), a fact that only solidifies my confidence in Atwell if Puka Nacua suits up.
Pick: Tutu Atwell over 54.5 receiving yards (-114 at FanDuel)
Katz: Through two weeks, Nacua leads the NFL with nearly a 40% target share. However, despite catching 25 passes for 266 yards, he’s yet to find the end zone.
That’s because 80% of the Rams touchdowns have come via the ground. Simply put, that won’t continue. The run/pass TD ratio will regress to the mean.
Based on his yardage total, Nacua should have about two touchdowns this season. How about one on Monday night?
Pick: Puka Nacua anytime touchdown (+195 at DraftKings)
