The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals will both be in search of their first wins of the season when they meet on Thursday night in Cleveland.

Betting Impact:

While the Browns were bludgeoned 38-6 by the Ravens, the Bengals had a respectable home showing in a 16-13 Week 1 loss to the Chargers. Bettors will be left to wonder if the way Cincinnati lost in Week 1 will have any effect on this week’s game. Rookie quarterback Joe Burrow led the Bengals down the field and had the ball at the five-yard line with 12 seconds left. However, the drive stalled after a penalty and Cincinnati missed a potential game-tying 31 yard field goal with two seconds left. The Browns split two meetings with the Bengals last year, with each winning on their home field.
