Three Cleveland Browns vs. Bengals Prop Bets

The Cleveland Browns will travel four hours down I-71 to go to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals this Sunday at 1 pm EST on CBS. Both teams lost their last matchups last weekend. The Bengals are a half of a game behind the Baltimore Ravens in second place in the division and the Browns are a half a game behind the Steelers in last place.

The Bengals lost a heartbreaker to the New York Jets 27-24 in a game where they were expected to dominate even though it was in New York. The Browns lost a low-scoring game to the division rivals, Steelers, by a score of 15-10. This was their second loss at home this season.

Let’s take a look at the best prop bets to place ahead of this Sunday matchup.

Three Best Prop Bets

Baker Mayfield Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-175)

The Browns offense has been very run-heavy, and this won’t change especially with the departure of Odell Beckham Jr. Baker Mayfield has six touchdowns all season and only two games that he has had more than one.

The Browns do turn it up a notch when they play the Bengals, but the Bengals defense is only giving up 2.2 touchdowns per game which ranks sixth in the NFL. I expect Baker Mayfield to throw one, but I don’t see him throwing more than that.

Joe Mixon Over 61.5 Rush Yards (-115)

Joe Mixon’s rush attempts have been going down from week to week, but I can’t imagine that the offense will be sustainable if Joe Burrow passes the ball that much. With more rush attempts, I expect Mixon to get over 61.5 yards.

He has eclipsed over 61.5 in five out of eight games, but zero in his last two. Look for Cincinnati to move more towards a more balanced offense especially after the disappointing loss to the Jets.

Nick Chubb Anytime Scorer (-140)

Even though this prop bet was placed last, it is probably the prop bet most likely to hit. Nick Chubb has been a scoring machine, going for at least one touchdown in five of the six games that he has played. Three out of those five games have been multi-touchdown games.

The Browns will need to rely on Chubb even more without OBJ, but Chubb has had plenty of success against the Bengals in the past. It will be an interesting matchup as the Bengals rank fifth in opponent yards per rush and seventh in opponent rush yards per game.

Expected Outcome

I could see this game going either way as this matchup tends to be close no matter what each year. Both teams are craving a win, and there will be plenty of fans from both sides in attendance. I expect the Bengals to pull out a close one in front of their home crowd on Sunday afternoon.
