The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night at the FirstEnergy Stadium. These teams faced each other twice last season and the Browns beat the Bengals both times and are 7-3 in the last 10 games vs Bengals.
The Browns get here with a 2-5 record and have lost 4 games in a row. In their last game, they lost 23-20 on the road against the Ravens where Nick Chubb had 91 yards on 16 carries. Brissett was 22 of 27 for 258 yards, but he was sacked five times and fumbled on one of them. The Browns lost tight end David Njoku to an ankle injury after he caught a team-high seven passes for 71 yards.
Jacoby Brisset has 1584 yards 6 touchdowns and 5 interceptions completing 146 of 233 passes. Nick Chubb is 3rd in the NFL with 740 rushing yards while Amari Cooper leads the team in yards received with 422 in 34 receptions and 4 touchdowns.
Defensively, they have been good against the run allowing 135.5 points per game while allowing 223.5 passing yards.
The Bengals get here with a 4-3 record overall and 2-2 on the road so far this season ranking 2nd in the AFC North. Last week the Bengals beat the Falcons 35-17 at home. Burrow passed for 345 yards in the first half alone as the Bengals scored on their first four possessions and finished 34 of 42 passes for 481 yards and three touchdowns and adding a 1-yard run for a score. He became the first QB to have five games of 400 yards or more in his first three seasons.
Defensively the Bengals have been playing well holding their opponents to 18.9 points per game and their strongest defense is by ground as they're allowing 119 rushing yards.
Cincinnati are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games against Cleveland.
Cincinnati are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Cleveland.
Cincinnati are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games on the road.
Cincinnati are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games when playing on the road against Cleveland.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Cleveland's last 7 games.
Cleveland are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Cleveland's last 6 games against Cincinnati.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cleveland's last 5 games at home.
The Browns have lost 4 games in a row but they have been unlucky more than once as they lost by 3 or less points in 3 of those 4 games. The Bengals have been playing great lately winning 4 of their last 5 games and scored and average of 32.5 points per game in the last 2 games but they have lost their last 4 meetings against the Browns. I expect a close game to be defined by a field goal so I'm going to take the Browns to cover the spread.
PICK: Browns +3 (-110)
