Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati Bengals Betting Odds

The AFC North will see its third and fourth place competitors square off this week. The Cincinnati Bengals will play host to the winless Cleveland Browns. A week ago the Browns suffered their sixth straight loss, this time in a two-point loss on the road in Tennessee. Meanwhile, the Bengals lost their second straight game. This time it was a blowout loss to Tom Brady and the Patriots.

The Browns may not have a win this season, but they have played in their handful of close games. They took the Dolphins to overtime in week three, after only a five-point loss in week two at home to the Ravens. Then last week on the road they were less than a field goal away from a win. So while their defense is pretty bad, they find a way to stay in games every so often. Terrelle Pryor is one of the team’s most dangerous weapons, but he is dealing with a hamstring issue. If he plays, he could get a lot of action this week against the Bengals.

I have said it before and I will say it again. I never trust the Bengals as big favorites. They always seem to disappoint, and I do not feel comfortable laying ten with them. Marvin Lewis loves to run a conservative offense. So even if Andy Dalton and AJ Green put the team up big early, the team will go into prevent mode. That will lead to the Browns scoring a few times, and at the end of the day, they could very well be within 10 points. The Bengals do have a solid defense, but I am banking on Marvin being Marvin.
