Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) at Cleveland Browns (0-1)

The Bengals will face the Browns in Week 2 after a tough 3 point loss in their season opener to the Chargers. Cleveland got blown out by the Ravens 38-6 in Week 1. I expect a closer game here but I do think Cincinnati's the better team. Both team's strengths are on the offensive side of the ball and they both have pretty weak defenses so this could end up being a high scoring game. I think the Bengals have the better QB Burrow, WR Green, and RB Mixon. While you could argue the WR because the Browns do have some good ones too but I just think Green's that much better. Sure they may need some more time for Burrow to get on the same page as his teammates but I think going up against the Chargers in Week 1, a lot of pressure will be off his shoulders now. He'll be going up against one of the most underachieving offenses in the league, so he shouldn't have to worry about looking bad and I do expect them to score more than 13 points in this one, building his confidence with each good drive and Touchdown. You could put a little bit on the big Moneyline because they do have a good chance of winning this game but the points might just come in handy and the spread will definitely be the biggest part of my bet. Let's take the points with the Bengals.
