Cleveland only gained 304 total yards, but was able to force four turnovers in the win. The Cleveland Browns are averaging 24.2 points per game, 214.8 passing yards per game, and 156 rushing yards per game. Deshaun Watson has thrown for 131 yards and one interception for the Browns this season. Nick Chubb has rushed for 1,119 yards and 12 scores, while Amari Cooper (questionable) has caught 61 passes for 832 yards and seven touchdowns for Cleveland.

The Cincinnati Bengals are 8-4 this season after they defeated the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 27-24 in their last game. Cincinnati out gained Kansas City by a total of 431-349 and went 7-11 on third down attempts in the game.

The Cincinnati defense is allowing 21.3 points per game and 330 yards per game.

Cleveland is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games against the AFC North and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win. The over is 6-2-1 in Cleveland’s last 9 games against the AFC. Cincinnati is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 21-7 ATS in their last 28 games. The under is 12-4-1 in Cincinnati’s last 17 games. The over is 7-1-2 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

Deshaun Watson did not look good in his first game back from suspension, but the Cleveland defense and special teams got the job done. Cincinnati got a win against Kansas City and will have a ton of momentum coming into this game. The Bengals have won four games in a row and their offense is really clicking right now. I expect Watson to play much better in this game and I like the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
