Betting market: The line movement on this game has been essentially nonexistent, as the Bengals have remained 3-point favorites since opening.
No waves of sharp action have come in as of yet, so there’s been no reason for oddsmakers to move the spread off the key number of three. — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: Cincinnati has lost two in a row but Andy Dalton has been good to bettors in this spot. In his career, Dalton is 12-6-1 against the spread when on a losing streak, covering on average by 6.2 points per game.
Dalton has also excelled against the Browns going 11-3 straight up and 9-4-1 ATS. — John Ewing
