Take the Bengals plus the points. The Browns shouldn't be laying this many points to the Bengals. They are division, not to mention state rivals. Last year they split the season series between them and I think the Bengals are much improved. The defense is coming along and they have a solid running back in Mixon. Burrow looks like his future is going to be very bright in Cincinnati. He looked really good in his opening game against the Chargers even though his team came up short. I was very impressed with how he ran the 2 minute offense. I was burned by the Browns last week and the play of Mayfield really concerned me. I know that he is still young but there comes a time when if it doesn't click I'm not sure if it ever will. Watching that game I felt he missed out on many opportunities. Sometimes he'd hold the ball too long, not take the check down when it was available, etc. I know the Ravens are a good team but that performance really gave me pause. I think the Bengals are coming into this game with more confidence and Burrow I feel is going to be the real deal. This game is close throughout. Take the Bengals and the points in this one.
