Will the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals continue to struggle on offense when the two meet this Sunday at 1PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Bengals are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -3 points against the Browns. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 41.5 points. Cincinnati has won five straight over Cleveland and the two have hit the under in five of their last six meetings. Sunday’s game takes place from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio and will air live on CBS.

Cincinnati fell to 0-3 on the season following an OT loss to the Packers in Green Bay last week. The Bengals are 2-1 with the under this year as well. Cincinnati is amassing just 11 points and 291.7 yards per game. The Bengals scored their first touchdowns of the season last week. Andy Dalton has thrown for 606 yards and two touchdowns with four interceptions. He also has been sacked 11 times. A.J. Green has caught 20 passes for 252 yards and a touchdown. Rookie Joe Mixon is the leading rusher with just 107 yards. The Cincinnati defense is doing what it can as the Bengals are allowing just 20 points and 316 yards per game.

Cleveland fell to the Colts in Indy last week, 31-28. The Browns are 2-1 with the under this year too. The Browns are averaging just 18.7 points and 341.7 yards per game on offense. Cleveland hasn’t had much of a run game, as Isaiah Crowell is the leading rusher with 114 yards on 39 carries. Rookie DeShone Kizer has thrown for 646 yards and three touchdowns, but also has seven interceptions. Defensively, the Browns are giving up 25.3 points and 334 yards per game. Their run defense is allowing just 87.7 yards per game. Cleveland has yet to see Myles Garrett on the field as the No. 1 pick is dealing with an ankle injury. He is listed as questionable to play on Sunday.

Bet on Bengals vs. Browns

This game isn’t like to be an offensive showcase. Cleveland has shown an ability to move the ball, but runs into a very good defense. Cincinnati has struggled to do much of anything against the Bengals, though the Browns aren’t a great defense. Ultimately I expect the struggles to continue for both offensive units as the Bengals haven’t shown they can consistently move the ball on anyone. Even last week’s scoring total included a defensive touchdown.
