The Cincinnati Bengals (3-3) host the Atlanta Falcons (3-3) in Week 7 with both coming off of big wins.
While the Falcons might only be 3-3, but in my personal power rankings, they are the best team in the NFL. Arthur Smith and the Falcons are 6-0 against the spread, they are a gamblers dream right now and as we all know, good teams win, great teams cover.

Falcons vs. Bengals Prediction and Pick
6-0 ATS is no small feat, it has only been accomplished 11 times in history.
The Falcons are a rare type of team, to be 3-3, but 6-0 ATS is almost unheard of, nearly all the teams on that list were really good teams, the most recent teams to go 7-0 ATS to start the year were the 2018 Kansas City Chiefs and 2021 Dallas Cowboys, both were 6-1.
Arthur Smith just knows what his team is good at and doesn’t ask his quarterback to do too much, it’s a very similar formula to what Brian Daboll is doing in New York. The Falcons defense is just a little bit worse. Last week Marcus Mariota went 12-for-13 for 129 yards and two touchdowns. The San Francisco defense was very banged up, but still Mariota was able to do enough while they ran for 168 yards.
Cincinnati looks like they may have figured out their offense against New Orleans, Joe Burrow threw for 300 yards and Jamar Chase had seven catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns, but I have to ride the Falcons until they lose one ATS.
Pick: Falcons +6 (-107)
