Browns vs Bengals NFL Week 12 Odds & Expert Prediction

Written by on November 21, 2018

As we head into the final few weeks of the NFL regular season, the battle for playoff spots gets a little more stressful. The teams that are sitting below the playoff line right now are well aware that every loss from this point forwards takes on even greater meaning, as it could well prove to be the one that brings their season to an end. For those teams that are almost certainly out of the race, the final weeks are all about cementing a place on the roster next season, as well as going out and trying to play the role of spoiler.

That is where the Cleveland Browns are at right now, as it increasingly looks as though it is going to be yet another season of futility for them. They will be on the road to Cincinnati this week, an AFC North rival that still has their eye on the playoff prize. The Bengals are sliding right now, though, and may well be on upset alert this Sunday. Cincinnati is in as a 3-point favorite, with the point total set at 47 ½.

Why bet on the Cleveland Browns?

The goal this offseason for the Browns will be to find a coach that can get the best out of the talent that they have to work with. There are a few solid pieces on this team, and it now looks as though the Browns may have found themselves a franchise QB in Baker Mayfield.

For the remainder of this season, the Browns will be looking for some positives, which they certainly got in their most recent game, a 28-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons. While it was nice to pick up a win, we should not forget that they now only have 3 victories in their last 25 outings. They are also just 1-8 SU in their last 9 visits to Cincinnati, as well as being just 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games at Paul Brown Stadium.

Why bet on the Cincinnati Bengals?

The Bengals saw their season get off to a positive start, but like many teams before them, their season started to derail when the injuries started to hit. Specifically, things went south when AJ Green was forced onto the sidelines, with the Bengals now picking up just 1 win in their last 5 games.

Browns vs Bengals is going to be a close one.

Green is listed as questionable for this weekend and you feel that his return might just be the spark that this team needs to get back above the playoff line. With the Steelers now starting to open up a lead atop the division, Cincinnati is probably looking at the Wild Card route, so this is very much a must-win situation moving forward. 5 of the last 7 meetings between these two in Cincinnati have gone over the point total.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Browns vs Bengals

I am more than a little concerned with this one given how poorly the Bengals have been playing of late, but their recent home record versus the Browns suggests that they should be able to get something out of this. We might very well be looking at a push in this one, but I do like the Bengals SU.

Score: Cleveland Browns 20 – Cincinnati Bengals 23
