Football betting fans will have their choice of two hated rivals that are struggling on offense so far and are looking to break out with a big football gambling payout.
The Cincinnati Bengals have a NFL betting record of 2-1 both straight up and against the spread and have gone under the total in 2 out of 3 games. Despite winning their last 2 games the Bengals are getting worse on offense as all of the big money talent they brought in to help quarterback Carson Palmer is yet to deliver.
The unit is yet to jell and is making a lot of mistakes while Palmer is well of his pace of last year. The defense has been respectable and ranks 9th overall in the league.
The Cleveland Browns have a NFL gambling record of 0-3 straight up and 1-2 against the spread with just 1 of their 3 games going over the total. It has been a frustrating start for the Browns and beleaguered head coach Eric Mangini who is back on the hot seat.
Quarterback Jake Delhomme has been injured after a promising preseason and the Browns rank 27th in the league for scoring as backup quarterback Seneca Wallace has been unable to generate a consistent attack. Peyton Hills has been impressive with 220 yards.
Delhomme is questionable for Sunday’s game as his ankle is still not at 100%. The Browns are coming off a hard fought 24-17 loss at Baltimore as 12 point dogs.
The Bengals have gone under the total in 20 out of their last 28 games following a payoff against the spread. Cincinnati is just 2-7 against the spread as a road favorite and has gotten the money in just 3 out of their last 11 games overall. The Browns have gone under the total in 7 out of their last 10 games following a straight up loss.
Cleveland has covered the spread in 8 out of their last 10 games overall. The underdog has posted 6 consecutive football betting payouts in this series and the two teams have gone under the total in 8 of their last 11 meetings at Cleveland and in 4 out of the last 5 matchups overall.
