The Bengals look to heap more misery on the hapless Browns in week 14. Here’s how we line up for our SU, ATS, and Total Picks.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns


Point Spread Value

The Bengals are coming off a 32-14 win over the Eagles in week 13, a much-needed confidence boost. Not that they are going anywhere this season when they are merely 4-7-1 SU and 4-8-0 ATS on the season with a -1.2 losing margin and -2.7 differential versus the spread. This could be a trickier game than the NFL odds would suggest, but the Bengals should come through as the modest road faves.

The Survivor

The Bengals are a shocking 1-5 SU on the road this season with a -7.5 losing margin on average. Is that an ominous sign? Could the Browns actually hope to win a game this season? It certainly is enough to give NFL bettors pause. However, with the Browns effectively out of the race ages ago there really is no incentive to win a game. This organization is looking to the future and the 2017 NFL draft.

Game Total

Earlier in the season, the Bengals beat the Browns 31-17 at Paul Brown Stadium, a game that cracked the closing total of 46.5 across most sports betting platforms. Surprisingly, the market rolls out a significantly lower NFL betting line. That’s largely down to the way the Browns offense has dwindled into single-digit range: an average of 9.75 scored per game in the last four.
