The Cleveland Browns have received 40% of the bets and 57% of the money in advance of Thursday night's meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns are holding firm for now as six-point favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

Though the math indicates most of the largest wagers have come in on the Cleveland Browns, this betting action is setting up as a dream scenario for sportsbooks. They love when there is good two-way betting action on a game as it minimizes their risk and allows them to profit off of the juice taken out of every bet. Sportsbooks will likely end up rooting for the Bengals for a small decision, as favorites like the Browns are usually widely bet on the moneyline or involved in teasers and parlays. Another look at the public betting a little closer to kickoff would really clear up which side the books are rooting for.
