Inclement weather isn’t typically a topic of discussion for September NFL games as wintry conditions, which are more interesting to talk about, are still a couple of months out.
However, wind, which is the most important of all weather conditions from a betting standpoint, can still very much be a factor early in the season, and tonight’s Bengals vs. Browns Thursday Night Football game is a perfect example.
Let’s take a deeper look at the Bengals vs. Browns weather forecast, and how savvy NFL bettors can take advantage.
Bengals vs. Browns Weather Forecast
According to the National Weather Service, 13-15 mph winds are expected tonight in Cleveland, which certainly aren’t ideal for both teams’ passing games.
Sports Insights’ weather data, which also includes wind direction and field orientation on an hourly basis, concurs, showing 13-mph breezes around kickoff that slowly increase as the game progresses.
Thanks to our Bet Labs software, we know that unders are 495-391-10 (55.9%) ATS in games played in double-digit winds since 2003.
Unsurprisingly, the Bengals vs. Browns over/under has dropped from 45 to 43.5 since Sunday evening and the under is also popping as a valuable betting edge on our new NFL PRO Report.
