It's a divisional rivalry on Halloween when the Cleveland Browns host the Cincinnati Bengals this evening as the Browns look to stop a four-game skid.

Cincinnati comes off their bye week winners of two straight games. They lead the division in net points at +41 after a rough start to the season, while also allowing the second-fewest points in the AFC behind only the Buffalo Bills.

The Browns, meanwhile, entered the week with the top rusher in the NFL in Nick Chubb, who currently sits 38 yards behind Saquon Barkley for the top spot in the league. After starting the season 2-1, the Browns have lost four straight games, but only one of them by more than three points.

Browns +7.5 (Alternate Line)

I'm already on Browns +3.5 from earlier in the week, and took them again at +3 when the Ja'Marr Chase news came out that he'd be out for the next several weeks.

Losing Chase to this Bengals offense is a big deal. With their current 3-WR set, here's how Chase stacks up compared to Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

  • Ja'Marr Chase: 74 targets, 47 receptions, 605 yards, 6 TDs, 86.4 YPG
  • Tee Higgins: 44 targets, 31 receptions, 455 yards, 2 TDs, 65 YPG
  • Tyler Boyd: 38 targets, 29 receptions, 455 yards, 3 TDs, 65 YPG

Burrow has also struggled vs. the Browns, going 0-3 straight up (SU) in his short career. I'm always intrigued by a short home dog in a divisional game, especially in prime time. WIth the hook plus an extra four points to make it more than a touchdown, I love this number for Cleveland.

Amari Cooper UNDER 59.5 Receiving Yards

My favorite bet for tonight's game is Amari Cooper UNDER 4.5 receptions. I mentioned this to my good friend in the industry, Adam Rosenberg, and he sent me the following nugget he found on the matchup.

Cincinnati ranks seventh in opponent completionswith only four wide receivers going over 4.5 receptions all year, including none since Week 5.

Since receptions are not an available SGP option, let's boost his receiving yards total up from 53.5 for a little more cushion at 59.5. Cooper averages 12.4 yards pre reception, so he would need to get five to finish above his average.

The Browns may be down late and potentially chasing, but their best chance to stay with the Bengals' explosive offense is a full dosage of the NFL's leading rusher in Nick Chubb, rather than go through the air.

Kareem Hunt OVER 6.5 Receiving Yards

The rumors surrounding trading Kareem Hunt ahead of Tuesday's NFL Trade Deadline continue to swirl, but the man is still on the team and is still their third down and receiving back, so until someone pulls him off the field, he's going to play and try to keep Cleveland in position to battle for a playoff spot.

Hunt has just one catch over his last two games for four yards, but has still been targeted multiple times in the passing game. The Bengals' corners have been outstanding of late, so if anything, the dump-off option should be in play tonight.

Hunt's number currently sits at 12.5 receiving yards, so for the sake of the parlay, we're cutting this in half.

Mike Thomas OVER 19.5 Receiving Yards

We're taking Thomas' rising over on his receiving yards and giving it a slight haircut in the final leg of our parlay

I grabbed this number as a separate bet on PointsBet when it was sitting at 20.5, it's since gone up to 26.5.
