Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals Best Prop Bets

The Cincinnati Bengals will travel up north to take on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at 1 p.m. on FOX. This will be a tough matchup to call with both quarterbacks expected to miss this contest and many more players, especially on the Bengals, to miss the game to rest up for the playoffs.

The 10-6 Cincinnati Bengals clinched the AFC North last weekend with their win against the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the first time that they won the division since 2009. The Browns, on the other hand, were stripped from playoff contention after the Bengals win and lost to the Steelers on Monday night to add salt to the wound.

Let’s look at the best prop bets going into the final game of the regular season.

Best Prop Bets

Cincinnati Bengals: Under 15.5 Total Points (-125)

Joe Burrow will not be playing for the Bengals which means that they have none of their firepower on offense. I expect the Bengals to limit or not play a lot of their players unless they are needed.

Brandon Allen will get the start and if you are a Bengals fan reading this, you know what that means: little production. Center Trey Hopkins and Guard Quinton Spain are both on the covid list which will hurt the offensive line and give Allen less time to make decisions. I don’t like betting against the Bengals this year, but this will not be the same Bengals team.

Cleveland Browns 1st to Score/ Moneyline (+100)

Along with the first prop bet, I expect the Browns to get on the board first and eventually win the game. Baker Mayfield will not be playing for the Browns as he underwent shoulder surgery since the Browns were out of playoff contention.

It is hard to know what this game will bring with a Brandon Allen vs. Case Keenum matchup, but I want to think that Keenum has more experience which will help him drive down the field better and win this essentially meaningless game for the Browns.

1st Drive- Field Goal Made (+550)

This might be one of the boldest picks that I have made this year, but in a game where both starting quarterbacks are out, you have to go big or go home. I am hoping that the Browns get the ball first because I don’t have faith in the Bengals' offense under Brandon Allen to march down the field.

With a prop bet like this and a matchup with key players out, you would need to hope for a good return or big play by either running back to get a big chunk of yards. One thing that I would bet against would be the first-drive touchdown. A first drive field goal could happen, but luck will need to be on your side.

Expected Outcome

I expect this to be a tough game to watch with lots of mistakes, but the Browns should get the best of the Bengals by a small margin and pull out their second victory of the year against the Bengals.
