The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals meet for the second time in 2022. Here’s a look at the odds and a prediction for their Week 14 matchup.

Back in Week 8, the Cleveland Browns hosted the Cincinnati Bengals on Halloween night. It was the only Monday Night Football game for the Browns this season and they defeated the Bengals by a score of 32-13.

It was a big win not only due to it being on a national stage but also because it stopped a horrendous four-game losing streak. Since then, Cleveland has gone 2-2 but the wins have come in back-to-back weeks.

Cincinnati, on the other hand, hasn’t lost since that night. They’ve now won four in a row and just scored a win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13. With that being the case, they’re unsurprisingly the favorite entering Week 14.

Browns vs. Bengals Odds Week 14

Cincinnati is sitting at -6 right now in the odds with a -260 in the Moneyline, compared to +215 for the Browns. The over/under is 47.5, which might be low considering how these teams often play one another.

Browns vs. Bengals Prediction Week 14

This will be the second game for Deshaun Watson as the Cleveland starter and his debut left a lot to be desired. Of course, anyone who thought he would look the same as he did in 2020 was fooling themselves.

With nearly two years off, he’s going to need some time to get reacclimated to the speed of the game. In this one, he will look better but it won’t be enough to outduel Joe Burrow. And while the Cleveland defense looked better against Houston, they’re still the same team we’ve seen getting steamrolled all year long.

Prediction: Bengals 33, Browns 27
