All the fans that visit our recommended sportsbooks will see the latest betting line for this Thursday Night Football game as Bengals of Cincinnati 10.5-point favorites and the Over/Under at 46.
An unreal season for the Bengals is the first time in the history of Cincinnati that they have been undefeated for 7 games. After an amazing game against Pittsburg, not one of the best for Cincinnati but they won the game 16-10 and covered the betting spread in the match to add one more victory for them.
Some Bengals players suffered different injuries on that match, for example Linebacker Rey Maualuga who suffered a calf injury in the first quarter, DE. Carlos Dunlap suffered a shoulder injury but he returned to the last quarter of the game against the Cardinals on week 8, but still with a limited participation.
This will be like a local battle since both teams are form Ohio, and in their last 11 games against each other they show a 9-1-1 ATS.
Cleveland Browns fans are worry about the team, after losing the last meeting against the Cardinals and failed to cover the spread as +7-point underdogs on that match; many injuries are affecting the team and that could be a reason to pick the Bengals to win.
Some of the most important players that are not going to show this time are: CB Joe Haden with a concussion, Ankle – WR Brian Hartline with a concussion, WR Andrew Hawkins with a concussion, those players did not participate on the practice, another player that was injured was QB. Johnny Manziel with a right Elbow injury, he has full participation on the practice this week.
