Browns vs Bengals 2019 NFL Week 17 Spread, Game Info & Betting Pick
Written by Lester Cullan on December 25, 2019
Baker Mayfield and the feeble-minded Cleveland Browns fan base might have believed all season long that their beloved Browns could have actually lived up to their derisory preseason playoff expectations, but the underachieving AFC North residents will be looking to cap off their 2019 regular season with a bus ride 3 blocks over to the discombobulated, dysfunctional Cincinnati Bengals house in their Week 17 division rivalry match-up.
2019 NFL Week 17 - Browns vs Bengals (Spread, Game Info & Betting Pick)
When: Sunday, December 29, 2019 at at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Paul Brown Stadium Cincinnati, OH
TV: FOX

Humidity: 72%
Precipitation: 60%
Wind: 10 mph WNW
Cloud Cover: 78%
Type of Stadium: Open
Since their inception, the Browns have always been the biggest disappointment in the NFL, but there are a bunch of great reasons to back the Browns in Week 17. Baker Mayfield and company average 4.4 points per game more than the Bengals while also owning the better statistical defense in this match up. Cleveland has won 4 of their last 7 games, smacking up the Buffalo Bills 16-19 and slapping up the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-7 along the way. The Cleveland Browns covered the chalk as a 6.5-point home favorite 3 weeks ago against Cincy, final score 27-19 and over at RedAlertWagers.com, Roland "The Roarin MAC" McGuillaman for sees a similar outcome in this match up.
Cleveland Browns Statistics:
Offense:
  • Average Score For: 20.80

  • Average Score Against: 24.00
  • Total Yards: 361.67
  • Pass Yards: 219.27
  • Rush Yards: 142.40
The Bengals are as stupid as you would imagine someone named Andy Dalton would look, if they would have won against the Dolphins last week they could have lost a No. 1 draft pick next year, but besides that fact, Andy "The Dummy" Dalton and company have lost 3 straight since upsetting the NY Jets for their only win of the season. The Bengals have scored 19 points or less in 8 of their last 10 games and really, this is a pointless game for the Bengals.
Cincinnati Bengals Statistics:
Offense:
  • Average Score For: 16.40

Week 17 Betting Trends for Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati Bengals
  • Browns are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 games against Cincinnati
  • Browns are 3-7 SU in the last 10 games against Cincinnati
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Cleveland’s last 6 games against an opponent in the AFC conference
  • Bengals are 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 games
  • Bengals are 1-16 SU in the last 17 games
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Cincinnati’s last 6 games against an opponent in the AFC North division
  • Over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Cincinnati.
  • Favorite is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings.
  • Over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
Baker "Doo-Doo Brown" Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns came up extra short this season, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing Cleveland fans get their playoff hopes up in the beginning of the season.
Will the Browns still be looking for the ATS cover in this season-ending rivalry match-up vs The Bengals??
With the potential canning of Freddie Kitchens maybe a couple bad play calls lead to a Cincy cover???

CreateYoureReality NBA Analysis and Picks 3/5

***SO CLOSE TO A HUGE DAY!!!**\*
Good luck to everyone, I hope are all riding and crushing it with my free analysis and picks!!!

Last Post Recap: Singles (9-6 +3.25U ) Parlay(1-3, -0.7U) BBDLS (0-3, -2.5U)
Recap: We were so close to a huge day!! If DEN scores or stops 1 more basket we hit our first BBDLS for 52 Units! We had some good underdog plays yesterday. It would have been nice to have a full unit on PHX, but I am glad they made up for my two big props missing. That is a big mental note for me...I didnt really have stats to back up the Bron play. I made that based up the fact that he was 40 points from passing MJ and the fact that I like him as a competitor. Not smart IMO. I mean, he only missed by 1 basket, but still I should have played it less aggressively. You win some, you lose some. That's how it goes, Son. On to the next one!

Analysis:

CHI/IND: The Pacers play their last home game before playing 2 on the road next week. They have been struggling lately dropping 3 of 4. The bulls start a back to back after going 5-3 in the last month with 2 of their losses coming to the league leading Bucks. Both teams have been playing poor defensively recently so for IND to cover they need to remember what kind of defense they were playing in the first 10 games after Oli went down. Based upon recent trends the over looks better but if INDY can regain their home defense this could be an easy 111-102 style victory. Even though INDY won both meetings this year, it was by a combined 9 points. I really might just stay away from this one unless I find some useful information to sway me one way or another.

ORL/PHL: ORL is a weird one recently. Winning against top teams and losing against the bottom teams. PHL is 3-2 since the break, finding some wins without Embid. One thing PHL has done a lot recently is lose their games, or win by small margins. My BM has PHL as -5 so if the line is already down to 3.5, ORL might be the safer play in the spreads. As for my favorite looks. Embid is still out, Marjanovic is out and Butler is Questionable and may be rested due to PHL starting a back to back. Nikola Vucevic has been playing pretty well and doesnt look like there will be anyone in the middle to slow him down. Also, as Ive stated before I love players returning to their origins to put on shows and Vucevic was originally drafted by PHL. Maybe he shows PHL what they are missing, especially given that PHLs center star is out. Also, Reddick has been quiet lately, but if Butler is rested I would look for JJ to launch up 8+ three point attempts tonight.

HOU/TOR: Hou is on a 5 game win streak and seems to have everyone healthy. TOR is 9-2 since FEB started but lost their recent outing while resting Leonard. My lines came out exactly like the vegas lines so I am not sure where to look in this one. With a lower projected pace than most on the day maybe the under is lookable but right now I am not finding much spread value. If I had to pick, I would be favoring TOR ml and the under but ill probably be cautious with this one. However, Pascal Siakam has been playing pretty well lately and HOU is vunerable to rebounds from the PF/C position so I might be looking his way. The only thing stopping me from loading on that is Capela is back and healthy and seeing a ton of minutes. In a lower paced game there might be less boards to fight for. We shall see.

POMEM: POR is 6-1 in their last 7. The Griz are 5-8 since FEB started but have been playing above average D recently. This is one of the lower paced games on the day and I could easily see this going like the POBOS game with neither team reaching 100. Id say MEM pts is probably the safer of the two sides. Even though POR has been killing it lately they have been on the road since Valentines day.

OKC/MIN: MIN is 2-0 vs OKC this year. OKC has really been struggling on both ends with out PG these last couple games. I would say this game comes down to that. IF PG is a go, I would favor an OKC ml having some value (Unless the news switches the money to +MIN then I would say value on MIN. Essentially I think this is closest to a coin flip if PG is playing at 90%+ so I would take the side with +value) But if PG is out again?? Im definitely going to lean MIN. Love the way KAT has been playing since the break but his numbers are a little high tonight.

BOS/GS: Is it possible that both Bron and Kyrie will flame out of the playoffs this year? Probably for the former, but not the latter. I still dont think the Celtics are playing anything like a team right now. My BM has this at -5 so if its up to 8 that probably means there is no confidence in BOS right now. I like GS to win but 8 is a lot. Even with Cousin and Draymond in the mix, GS is vunerable to centers that can RBD. Ill be looking at Horford tonight.

I would like to thank everyone for all the kind messages. Some of you have been mentioning you wish I had my picks out sooner. Unfortunately this is currently just a hobby until I get a large enough sample size to invest some real money. $10 Units is quite small and it already takes 2-5 hours to do all the research and write this up each day. I try to squeeze all this in in the early morning and late afternoon between gym time and work time. Some users mentioned I should charge for my picks or at least ask for donations since I am putting in so much time to help other people make well informed decisions. While I will admit it is a goal of mine (that started during my look into the nfl season) to create a model that I could sell my picks with based upon its success, I am not sure I am at the level of straight sales. This week I will look into what goes into setting up donation accounts. I feel that is a better system since it incentivises (is that word?)' me to work harder to make more accurate predictions as my earnings should be correlated to my readers earnings. However, that is assuming at least some portion of my readers take the time and resources to donate to me. Im not really sure what to do about it yet and I may just keep it free and post when I have time.
If you guys are really enjoying these write-ups and you would either donate or pay for picks, leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts. Id really like to know what the readers think. Thanks again for reading and good luck today! : )

Degeneration Nation: best longshot prop bets

I would not recommend sports gambling unless you happen to have a load of disposal income. Hell, even then, I wouldn't recommend sports gambling. Unless you have some advanced analytical system or a Marty McFly sportsbook, it's a sucker's game and a surefire way to lose money over the long run.
THAT SAID, it's still fun to talk about. And once and a while, try to take a chance on some good value picks. I'm going to suggest a few of those here, although be warned that a) gambling is dumb, b) I am dumb. But hey here are my two cents anyway.
BEST LONGSHOT PROP BETS
Matthew Stafford: most passing yards, +1500 (15:1)
I'm taking these odds from the two most popular online sportsbook. On sportsbook.ag, Stafford was +1500 (15:1). On bovada, he's +1200 (12:1).
In either case, there's value there. The Detroit Lions are going to try to run the ball more often, but time will tell if that will actually work. And if it doesn't, Matt Stafford should be zipping passes all season long. New coach Matt Patricia comes from a New England franchise that had a lot of success with the volume passing game, so I don't think he'll have any qualms about letting Stafford rip as many times as necessary.
Last season, Stafford had 4446 passing yards, 3rd most in the NFL (and only 121 behind leader Tom Brady.) And for Stafford, that was no fluke. Since 2011, he's averaged 4562 passing yards per season. If he can simply hit that average, he'll be right in the mix for the most passing yards. There's no reason to think Stafford will struggle this year in particular; the Lions' receiving corps is one of the more underrated units in the league.
If you want to be even BOLDER, you can look at Stafford at for MVP (40:1 on both sites.) I don't project Detroit into the playoffs myself, but if you do, Stafford may parlay that into MVP buzz.
Saquon Barkley: most rushing yards, +1400 (14:1)
Note: this is only +1000 on bovada, at which point I may pass. But the 14:1 on sportsbook feels like solid value.
To me, Saquon Barkley is the best RB prospect of the 2000s. Now, does that mean he's going to be a surefire stud in the NFL? No, not at all. Does that mean he's going to be good as a rookie? Not necessarily. There are several factors working against him on that front. He's been struggling with a hamstring injury in the preseason. His offensive line is a "work in progress" (to be kind.) His coach Pat Shurmur is more of a passing game guru than running guru (his Vikings tended to struggle there.)
But when you're talking about odds like this, all you want is a credible chance. And I believe Barkley gives you that. He's going to be a workhorse with every opportunity to succeed. If Eli Manning and the Giants defense continue to struggle, perhaps Shurmur leans more heavily on the running game to help control the clock. Best of all, the "bar" isn't enormously high here. Last season, Kareem Hunt led the league with 1327 rushing yards. Barkley can theoretically match or exceed that mark.
To me, the biggest threat to win this crown would be Ezekiel Elliott, whom may be dinged slightly by the loss of his center Travis Frederick. There's an opening here for someone like Barkley to burst through the gates.
Amari Cooper: most receiving yards, +4000 (40:1)
Okay you want to get crazy? Let's get nuts. Cooper is 40:1 on both sites, well down the list of top contenders.
And it's easy to understand why he's being overlooked. Cooper was AWFUL last season. He registered a pathetic 48 receptions and 680 yards, good for # 51 in the league.
So how can # 51 rise to # 1? Opportunity. To win the "most receiving yards" crown, you need targets. Lots of targets. In Oakland, Cooper should be getting that. Jon Gruden is going to make Cooper the focal point of the passing game in a major way. Cooper averaged 131 targets in 2015-16, and may improve on those marks with Michael Crabtree out of the picture. I can easily see him being peppered with 150-160, even if it means forcefeeding him the ball. If he hits that 160 mark, he'd gain about 1300 yards based on his career yards/target average.
Unlike the running back position, the "bar" is going to be high at receiver. If they're healthy, Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, and Odell Beckham will be flirting with the 1500 mark. But hey, at 40:1, you're not looking for a surefire bet. You're buying a lottery ticket.
Christian Kirk (WR-ARI), offensive rookie of the year: +10,000 (100:1)
This is only +5500 (55:1) on bovada, but I'd still look at this either way. Kirk is the 20th highest player on the board, and good value at that spot.
Obviously, Saquon Barkley is the heavy favorite for this award. Hell, he may be the leading rusher in the NFL (as discussed.) But if Barkley does not live up to the/my hype, then there may be an opening here. Fellow top backs (Rashaad Penny, Ronald Jones, Sony Michel, Nick Chubb) have not secured a major role for their teams yet. Royce Freeman (DEN) is a major threat, but it's not like Denver is a powerhouse of an offense themselves.
In terms of quarterbacks, I don't see any of this particular class excelling out of the gates. With the exception of Baker Mayfield (who's a backup), they're all young and in need of some refinement. They'll get the headlines, but probably not this trophy.
Enter Kirk as a potential sleeper. One of my favorite pet theories regards the predictive quality of Immediate Impact. In college, it's very rare for a player to step right onto campus and make an impact as a true freshman (without a redshirt season first.) When they do, they often make a similar immediate impact in the NFL. Joey Bosa is a great example of this; the kid ripped it up for 7.5 sacks as a true freshman at Ohio State, and sure enough, looked ready from Day 1 in the NFL as well.
Receiver Christian Kirk had that same type of "immediate impact" at Texas A&M, leading the team with 1009 yards as a true freshman. Physically, he's not an overwhelming talent, but he's exceptionally polished and skilled for his age. Apparently he's been displaying that in Arizona already, which could translate into a major role. I wouldn't be shocked if he gets 800-900+ yards out of the gate.
Is he a likely rookie of the year? No. But hey, this is 100:1 we're talking about. All you want is a chance. And I believe he has that.
Derwin James: defensive rookie of the year, +1400 (14:1)
James is 14:1 on bovada, but only 10:1 on sportsbook. At 14:1, I'm looking hard at this bet.
Copy and paste what I wrote about "immediate impact" and apply it tenfold to Derwin James. As a true freshman at Florida State, he looked like a superstar, registering 91 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles from the safety position. An injury derailed his sophomore year, but he's now 2 years recovered from that and should be back to elite form. There aren’t many safeties like him. Ever. He's a 6'3" rocket launcher.
With the Chargers, Derwin James has every opportunity to shine. The Chargers may be a top 3 defense this year and a potential playoff force, keeping James in the spotlight. He can also be used in a variety of roles -- including as a pass rusher -- which should help bolster his stats.
Any "defensive rookie of the year" race is wide open because there are so many horses in the field, but James would be a top 3 candidate to me, at a very reasonable and discounted price here.
Von Miller: most sacks, +1800 (18:1)
Again, with a "long shot" bet, all you really want is a viable chance of success. Von Miller as the leading sack artist in the league? There's definitely a chance of that. He's recorded 10+ sacks in six of his seven years in the league, with the only exception in 2013 when he missed 7 games.
I wouldn't necessarily peg Miller as the favorite for this distinction (that would probably be Joey Bosa), but he offers the best value given these odds. Your hope here is that rookie DE Bradley Chubb takes some of the pressure off Miller, and allows him to rack up 14-15 sacks again. If the Denver Broncos offense plays a little better as a team, that should also help Miller's cause as well. Opponents didn't need to throw much on them last year -- registering just 491 passing attempts. If that numbers climbs back up to 520-530, then Miller will have more bites at the apple.

CreateYoureReality NBA Analysis and Picks 3/5

***SO CLOSE TO A HUGE DAY!!!**\*
Hello all! As I have said before i am moving my write ups over to CreateYoureReality but I will post them here this week just to keep people update until the changes is made.

Last Post Recap: Singles (9-6 +3.25U ) Parlay(1-3, -0.7U) BBDLS (0-3, -2.5U)

My Favorite Fits: OL edition

You'll hear media draft experts hedge their bets and their evaluations on prospects all the time with the caveat: "his success may depend on where he lands." And that's certainly true. But a prospect's "fit" with an organization is multi-faceted. It depends on team need, of course, the coaching staff and their system, and (an underrated aspect in my mind) the team leadership, particularly in his position group.
I'm going to try to wade through the positions and give my favorite fit, but I'll be curious to hear yours in the comments below.
OT Cam Robinson, Alabama
After being touted as a top 10 pick for most of his college career, Robinson has been beaten up a little by this draft process and pundits who worry that he may not be quick enough to anchor the left side.
Personally, I still feel like Robinson is the top OL in the class. He's a proven starter at an elite program who would be a solid LT, and worst case, an excellent RT.
Given that, I would justify a pick of Robinson as high as #14 to Philadelphia. The Eagles have a great pair of tackles, but LT Jason Peters is 35 years old and may not have much gas left in the tank. Robinson can either take over for Peters down the road or, more likely, move to RT so Lane Johnson can swing over to the left side for the long term.
Either way, securing a good young pair of bookends would be a prudent long-term strategy for the Eagles, particularly if they wait until R2 to take a RB (like Dalvin Cook.)
OT Garett Boles (Utah) and Ryan Ramcyzk (Wisconsin)
I'm linking these two tackles together because they're similar in my mind. They're both late risers who parlayed one great season of college play into R1 consideration. However, they both have question marks. For Bolles, it's his age and the fact that he's already 25. For Ramcyzk, it's a hip injury that may give teams some pause about his long-term health. Neither one may last 10 years in the league, but they should give you a starter-caliber tackle sooner than most.
Givne that, I like the fit for both at Seattle at #26. The Seahawks added Luke Joeckel in the hopes they can rediscover his LT form, but that's hardly a guarantee. Even if Joeckel succeeds, this line still needs more talent; advanced stats graded them as the worst in the league last year. Ramcyzk and Bolles may carry some risk, but they'd be an immediate talent boost for a team with a chance to contend.
OG Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky
A college tackle, Lamp has been projected as a guard at the next level. I tend to agree with that, which is why I like his fit with Green Bay at #29. The Packers have some question marks on the interior, and Lamp may be able to lock up one of those spots right away.
Getting more of a push inside would go a long way to helping the Packers establish a more consistent running game, which in turn would go a long way to their title hopes. Like suggested with the Eagles, the Packers can improve their line in R1 and then find a RB later on (maybe Joe Mixon?)
G/C Ethan Pocic, LSU
A college center, Pocic has an unusual frame for the position at 6'7". Even with that height, he's an agile kid who presumably could play several different spots along the line.
I happen to like his fit for Atlanta, either in R2 or R3. The Falcons already have Alex Mack anchoring the center position, but as mentioned, Pocic may actually fit well as a guard instead. His athleticism and mobility would be a good fit for their system (presuming they keep the same blocking schemes in place post Kyle Shanahan.)
G/C Pat Elflein, Ohio State
A fiery team captain and plugger up the middle, Elflein should be a solid starter at either guard or center at the next level.
He could fill that role well with a team like Cincinnati, either in R2 or R3. The Bengals had a few defections this offseason, including Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler, but they also had below-average play from their center Russell Bodine last year. Elflein may prove to be an immediate upgrade for the unit.
OT Zach Banner, USC
We have to include Zach Banner on this list, because he actually did an AMA recently. I happen to like Banner as a prospect anyway. He's a mammoth man who should be able to start as a right tackle sooner or later.
Given that, I like the idea of Banner going to Minnesota. Sure, the Vikings signed two tackles this offseason -- Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers -- but I like Reiff a lot more than Remmers. Banner can be their next version of Phil Loadholt and be a mauler in the run game. That same logic would make him a good fit for Dallas as well, as the Cowboys look to replace recently retired Doug Free.

Parlay and teaser bets are a great way to add some extra excitement to your betting. NFL parlays and teasers allow you to combine multiple bets into a single wager, vastly increasing the risk/reward of your bet. Parlays: An NFL parlay bet stacks multiple single bets in a single wager. A parlay is a single sports wager that involves two or more teams winning.The allure of these bets has always been a larger payout than choosing a single team to win. The larger payouts for a parlay make sense since picking an individual winning side or total is difficult by itself. NFL Parlay Betting Basics. Betting on NFL parlays is rather straightforward if you have been sports gambling for any significant amount of time. Placing a parlay bet is just a matter of filling out a parlay ticket by adding 2 or more games to it, and submit it either in person or online. Note that many outlets cap games at 12 for parlay betting When to parlay, when not to parlay. At land-based casinos, when the standard 20/1 payout on a five-team teaser is applied, Feinberg says there’s really only one situation where the bettor might have an edge. Some sportsbooks use “parlay cards,” where you can pick a group of games using lines printed on a card at the beginning of the week. The Bengals and Browns filled holes on draft day while the Steelers will be getting Ben Roethlisberger back, but this draft class should leave the Ravens well-positioned to cash as -200 favorites to win the AFC North (DraftKings). Sean Koerner: Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones captained the Cowboys’ draft from his private yacht this year.
