Browns Bengals Betting – Ohio Rivals Fight For Respect In Cincinnati

The Cleveland Browns were playing well before their new starting quarterback got injured. Now they’re just as bad as the Cincinnati Bengals have been this season.

Online Betting Odds: Cincinnati Bengals (-1.5)

Why To Bet On The Browns

The best reason to pick the Browns is that they’re playing the Bengals and a quarterback who is having a worse year than Peyton Manning is. Cincinnati signal caller Carson Palmer has seen his career deteriorate over the past several seasons. While Manning is suffering through one of the worst seasons of his Hall of Fame career, Palmer won’t come close to sniffing Canton, Ohio, after a steady downturn in a career that’s hit rock bottom this season. Palmer is throwing pick-sixes left and right, and he added two more to the count this past Sunday in a 23-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Palmer truly was primarily responsible for losing a game in which the rest of his teammates played hard… not necessarily smart, but certainly hard. The Bengals are making terrible mistakes all over the field. They’re committing lots of holding penalties to blunt their most promising drives. They’re dropping easy interceptions in the end zone. They’re failing to make basic plays in all three phases of competition. They commit stupid and completely unforced errors right when they have opponents on the ropes. Cincinnati is just a bottom-of-the-barrel team right now, and that’s why the Browns have a shot in this in-state encounter.

Why To Bet On The Bengals

The Bengals actually have a decent chance to win a ballgame. How can that possibly be? It’s simple: Colt McCoy is not fully healthy, which in turn means that Jake Delhomme – another veteran quarterback who used to be pretty good – is simply tumbling, bumbling, fumbling and stumbling toward complete irrelevance (and a backup spot) in the NFL. Delhomme presided over the Browns’ worst offensive game of the season this past Sunday in a 13-6 loss against the lowly Buffalo Bills.

Losing a 13-6 game against the New York Jets’ defense or the Chicago Bears’ defense is one thing. Losing 13-6 to Buffalo is another matter altogether. Delhomme’s skill set has eroded. The man who once guided the Carolina Panthers to a Super Bowl appearance, an NFC title game (in the 2005 season), and to the 2008 (January 2009) divisional playoff round has watched his abilities evaporate into nothing over the last two seasons. This is a man who has simply reached the end of the line in his playing career, but since he’s likely to be the guy for Cleveland in place of the ailing McCoy – who ably guided the Browns while in the starting lineup – Cincinnati could very easily win at home.

How The Game Will Play Out

Delhomme or Palmer – which quarterback will play worse? Flip a coin – that’s what oddsmakers are doing. The Bengals actually have played hard in recent weeks, and almost beat defending champion New Orleans at home two weeks ago. Take the Bengals as long as Colt McCoy is not ready to play at his best.
