Fading Bengals Look for Lift in Date with Winless Browns

The Cincinnati Bengals will be trying to halt a two-game straight-up and against the spread slide that has devastated their playoff hopes when they host the winless Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon in a matchup between AFC North rivals at Paul Brown Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The Bengals are 6-0 SU and ATS in their last six games after consecutive losses.
  • The Browns are 0-8 SU in their last eight games on the road after losing their most recent road game.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Browns' last five games in Week 7.

The Bengals continued to struggle on both sides of the ball last weekend, dropping a 35-17 decision in New England as 7.5-point road underdogs that left them with a 2-4 record on the year. Cincinnati has now failed to top 17 points in four of its past five contests, and has surrendered 28 or more points in three of four.

Cleveland is now winless SU in nine straight following last week's disappointing 28-26 loss in Tennessee. The Browns have been keeping it close in recent road contests, covering in three of their past five, and are 7-5 ATS in their past 12 on the road while pegged as underdogs by nine or more points.

The Browns have lost three straight to Cincinnati, both SU and ATS, since recording a 24-3 victory at Paul Brown Stadium as 6-point underdogs in 2014. Overall, Cleveland is just 2-10 SU in its past 12 road clashes with the Bengals, but covered in five of those contests.
