Why bet on Cincinnati versus Cleveland?

The big news in this game is that Bengals’ star wideout Ja’Marr Chase won’t play due to an injury. Chase caught 8 passes for 130 yards and a couple of touchdowns in Cincy’s 35-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

But although Chase won’t play, Hayden Hurst is one of the top tight ends in the game, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins are both elite wide receivers, and Joe Mixon is one of the best running backs in the league. Burrow should have another monster game even though LSU buddy Chase must stand on the sidelines.

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns Final Betting Prediction

In the past two weeks, no team has impressed as much as the Cincinnati Bengals. On offense, the Bengals have rolled through their opponents.

Joe Burrow torched a decent Saints’ defense with 300 yards and 3 TD passes. The Cool One lit up the Falcons’ D with 481 yards, 3 TDs, and a rushing TD.

Cleveland allows 210.4 passing yards, which isn’t bad, but 135.6 rushing yards. So if the Browns intend on stopping Burrow, they will have to contend with Mixon.

Either way, the Browns are in trouble. Also, it doesn’t help Cleveland’s cause that, although a rivalry, the Bengals are 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings. Cincinnati wins and covers.

NFL Week 8 Pick: Cincinnati Bengals -3
