Browns vs Bengals Preview

The Cincinnati Bengals have been gaining momentum in recent weeks, winning four games in a row to propel themselves to an 8-4 record. After a shaky start to the season, Joe Burrow and the Bengals are now establishing themselves as one of the league's challengers. They proved it last time out with a win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Joe Burrow is now 3-0 against Patrick Mahomes following yet another impressive display amidst a budding rivalry between two great AFC quarterbacks. Burrow was efficient throughout the game dominating with his passing game. The former LSU quarterback and Heisman winner went 25 of 31 for 286 passing yards and two touchdowns, while rushing 11 times for 46 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

The Cleveland Browns cut the ribbon on a new era on Sunday with Deshaun Watson making his first appearance since being traded from the Houston Texans back in March. Watson and the Browns returned to Houston to face his former team in his first start in two years. While he looked a little rusty, that was to be expected and you can certainly see that the talent the quarterback has is still there, the question is just how long it takes for the offense and Watson himself to settle down.

Browns vs Bengals Odds, Spread, Moneyline, Over/Under - NFL Odds Week 14

Moneyline: Cleveland Browns +215, Cincinnati Bengals -255

Spread: Cleveland Browns +6, Cincinnati Bengals -6

Total: Over/Under 47.5

The Cincinnati Bengals are now level with the Baltimore Ravens in the chase for the AFC North and the all-important top four seed in the playoffs. Based on recent performances, it’s the Bengals that are playing far superior football and they’ve quickly caught the Ravens with their recent run of form.

With wins over Chiefs and Titans in their last two outings, the Bengals have beaten two division leaders in the AFC who they could easily meet again in the playoffs. They’re undefeated in their last four games and won three of those games without star receiver Ja’Marr Chase.

Chase sat out for a month with a hip injury before returning to the lineup against the Chiefs on Sunday, where he had 7 catches for 97 yards.

The Bengals are in fine form. Joe Burrow is playing elite level football right now and his decision making was almost flawless against the Chiefs on Sunday. Despite starting running back Joe Mixon sidelined, it was the Bengals who prevailed, and Burrow completing 80% of his passes is a phenomenal effort against a strong playoff caliber team like the Kansas City Chiefs.

Cincinnati’s problem early in the season was the concerning failure of the offensive line. Having spent big in free agency to bring in players such as La’el Collins at right tackle and Alex Cappa at guard, Burrow was under even more pressure and those problems were rippling throughout the offense as a result. Burrow was sacked thirteen times in the opening two games of the season, but in those last four wins he has only been sacked five times in total, which is a drastic improvement that has allowed the Bengals to flourish.

All of that said, the last game the Cincinnati Bengals lost, and they lost it badly, was against the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals lost 31-13 and a large part of that was the pressure applied by the Browns defense, throwing Burrow and the Bengals off their game.

The Browns sacked Joe Burrow five times that game, the same total number of sacks that he’s faced in his last four games combined. Under that level of pressure, we saw the results. The Browns forced Burrow into two turnovers, a lost fumble, and an interception. This unfortunately for the Bengals, saw the Browns run away with the game.

The Browns defense is very capable of heavily impacting a game and the Bengals will need to avoid the same fate the second time around. The sole reason the Browns beat the Houston Texans on Sunday was turnovers. Cleveland’s defense scored twice on Sunday, which is great for Cleveland, but the offense still has several questions to answer.

Cleveland needs to win full stop if they want to stand any chance of a late push for a playoff spot to remain alive. At 5-7, they can’t afford to lose, and that’s a concern when the offense failed to score a touchdown against the worst team in the league at the weekend.

The Browns ran the ball a lot better on Sunday with 26 carries split between Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, but Deshaun Watson's return came with a lot of kinks that will need to be ironed out.

Watson showed some flashes of his former self, escaping the pocket well and extending plays in his signature fashion. That said, he only completed 12 passes and was shaky in places, including being picked off in the end zone by rookie safety Jalen Pitre. The former Texans quarterback did start to connect with Amari Cooper more as the game went on, but the Browns looked totally lost for ideas in the red zone. That could be play calling, it could be the rust that Deshaun Watson will be wanting to dust off quickly, but it’s most likely a combination of both.

Keep in mind this was Deshaun Watson's very first start for the franchise. The quarterback, his coaching staff and subsequent play callers will need to develop a relationship first. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the playoffs represent a realistic achievement for this season at least.   

Browns vs Bengals Predictions and NFL Picks Week 14

The Bengals have been a very strong performer against the spread this season. They’re 9-1 in their last ten games ATS and 9-3 on the season. Their form has proven valuable for bettors and makes the six-point margin rather appealing when diving into it.

The Bengals are 7th in scoring this season, 4th in passing yards and 6th in yards per game, while Cleveland failed to score at all offensively against the Houston Texans on Sunday, and their quarterback only managed 131 yards passing.

While that was to be expected, it’s a lot to try and turn around against a Joe Burrow led Bengals team on the road all in the space of a week. The Deshaun Watson in Cleveland project is going to take time, and the first stop in Cincinnati is just going to come a little too soon.

The Bengals have ironed out a lot of problems on the offensive line since these two last met, and while Myles Garrett is a different beast, the Bengals should prevail, and I like the six-point spread for those reasons.

The Pick: Cincinnati Bengals -6 (-110)

While the Bengals have been winning in recent weeks, their last two performances against the Chiefs and Titans have both resulted in the under. The Bengals are playing a little more conservatively and taking care of the football. In fact, these two teams are both top five in time of possession in 2022. They’re more methodical teams with the way they drive down the field and often suffocate their opponents time with the football.

I can see that being a key factor in this game with both sides taking their time and implementing the run game in a key matchup. I’ll take the under.

The Pick: Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati Bengals Under 47.5 Points (-110)

Best NFL Player Prop Bets: Sunday Afternoon Football Week 14.

Deshaun Watson

Two years out the game is going to take its toll on anyone and goes a long way to explaining Watson’s performance against his former team in the Houston Texans. His stats for the day didn’t make for great reading either, he only logged 131 passing yards with one interception and zero touchdowns. Aside from one 27-yard connect with Donovan Peoples-Jones, Watson failed to connect on a pass more than 13 yards the entire day against the Texans.  

It’s going to take a while for this rusty star quarterback to rediscover his best form. For that reason, I’m picking Deshaun Watson to fall short of his passing props against a strong Cincinnati pass defense. Checkout my best combination player prop bet below.

The Pick: Deshaun Watson Passing Yards Under (225.5) and Passing Touchdowns Under (1.5)
