Joe Burrow is expected to start for Cincinnati, but he still is battling a calf strain and that could hamper him against the Browns, who have won eight of the past 10 meetings against the Bengals. Cleveland is hoping Deshaun Watson can finally give it some stability at the quarterback position and he has many talented receivers, including Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore along with Nick Chubb at running back. The Browns have a new defensive coordinator in Jim Schwartz and they beefed up their defensive line by signing Dalvin Tomlinson and Obo Okoronkwo. Cincinnati could have an early-season hangover after narrowly missing out on playing in the Super Bowl for the second straight season. The Bengals still have a strong receiver corps with Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, but Burrow's health is still the question mark in this game. The UNDER is 7-0 in the Bengals' past seven September games and the Browns are 3-0-1 UNDER their past four home contests and six of their last seven games overall last season stayed UNDER. Cincinnati finished 6-3 UNDER its last nine games in 2022-23. Take the Browns as a Max Play and the UNDER.
