Bengals vs. Browns Betting Prediction
The Cleveland Browns should be a better team in 2023 with a full season of Deshaun Watson under center as the three-time Pro Bowler will have likely knocked off the rust by now. Despite this, they will face a tough challenge in the Cincinnati Bengals, who should be one of the best teams in the league once again this season. Look for Cincinnati to get off to a strong start as they win by at least two points.
