Pro Football Betting: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns

Pro football betting Sunday includes the Ohio rivalry of the Bengals and Browns. The only factor in this NFL sports betting matchup is pride.

Pro football betting is always a challenge.  But a game like this between two losers playing out the string is not only a great challenge, but one that is often filled with excellent NFL sports betting opportunities.  Cincinnati is usually one of the worst teams in pro football betting.

Sure, there was a blip of a playoff season a while back, but this is consistently one of the first teams that NFL sports betting fans look to oppose on the board, sort of an opposite scenario of the public’s attitude on the Dallas Cowboys.  This season, making a regular habit of pro football betting opposition to the Bengals has been a profitable idea.

Cincinnati has an overall NFL sports betting record of 2-11-1 straight up and 5-9 against the football betting lines.  Last week the Bengals scored an upset win over Washington, 20-13, as 6.5 point pro football betting home dogs.  It was the Bengals first pro football betting cover in 4 games.

Cincinnati ranks a miserable 32nd overall on offense.  On defense, which is considered coach Marvin Lewis’ area of expertise, Cincinnati ranks just 23rd.  The Cleveland Browns have an overall pro football betting record of 4-10 straight up and 6-7-1 against the football betting lines.

Cleveland’s pro football betting ineptitude continued last week in a bad 10-30 loss at Philadelphia in which the Browns were 16 point dogs.  Cleveland has an overall home pro football betting record of 2-4-1 against the spread.  Dating back to last season the Browns have gone under the total in 7 of their last 10 games at home.

Like the Bengals, the Browns struggle on both sides of the line of scrimmage as they rank 30th overall on offense while ranking 27th overall on defense.  Cleveland is in a pro football betting free fall in which they have gotten the cash in just 1 of their last 7 games.

A lot of this slump can be traced to the rumors that continue to grow about the likely firing of head coach Romeo Crennel.  In this historic head to head pro football betting series the two teams have gone under the total in 7 of their last 9 meetings at Cleveland.
