Browns Bengals Prop Picks
Kareem Hunt breaks out, Joe Burrow struggles and Odell Beckham Jr silences his critics. Here are my favorite prop bets for Thursday nights matchup between the Bengals and Browns.
Kareem Hunt OVER 41.5 yards prop
Even with the Browns getting blown out, Kareem Hunt had a solid game. He rushed for 72 yards on 13 carries against a tough Baltimore defense. To my surprise, he carried the ball more than Nick Chubb, who many touted as the Browns’ lead back this season. Just last week, Hunt was rewarded with a new two-year, $13.25 million contract extension, which shows the organization’s dedication to getting him the ball.
This matchup bodes well for Hunt, as the Bengals struggled mightily against the run, and it was on full display last week. The Browns passing attack was nonexistent last week so I expect head coach Kevin Stefanski to try and get his running game going early. Hunt also has the explosiveness to take one to the house at any time, so 41.5 yards is simply too low in my opinion. Take the over 41.5 yards prop here.
