The Cincinnati Bengals will play their second preseason game on Friday night against the Atlanta Falcons. Preseason games are important because they give the players lower on the depth chart and on the roster bubble a fighting chance to show why they should stick around.
The Bengals lost their first preseason game, which took place last Friday against the Green Bay Packers. The starters didn't play in that one and we might see starters suit up for this one but even if they do, they likely won't be out there very long.
Bengals vs. Falcons kicks off at 7:30 EST.
Bengals vs. Falcons betting odds, spread, and over/under

The moneyline for the Bengals is +210 and it's -250 for the Falcons. The over/under is set at 38.5 points.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
