Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns – Week 8 Betting Preview

NFL Bets

Week 8 brings us an intriguing Monday Night Football matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns are trying their hardest to stay afloat until Deshaun Watson returns from his suspension, but the ship is slowly sinking as Cleveland continues to lose winnable games. Now, trade rumors are swirling around backup running back Kareem Hunt, and all signs point to the season being lost if the Browns can’t get a win over Cincinnati.


On the other side, the visiting Bengals have found their stride, particularly on offense, as they enter this matchup fresh off of a 35-point outburst against the Falcons. Cincinnati did, however, lose its superstar receiver Ja’Marr Chase in the process. This offense is jam-packed with talent, but picking up Chase’s slack won’t be easy. As these two teams head in opposite directions, the Bengals will look to keep the momentum rolling and the Browns will hopefully stop the bleeding on Monday night.
