Cincinnati (4-3) is trying to keep pace with the Ravens at the top of the AFC North after Baltimore moved to 5-3 with its Thursday night victory against Tampa Bay. The Bengals have won four of their past five, including a 35-17 victory against Atlanta last Sunday.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET at Cleveland's FirstEnergy Stadium. Cincinnati is a 3-point favorite in the latest Bengals vs. Browns odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total points scored is 45.

Before you make any Browns vs. Bengals picks or NFL predictions, you need to hear what football expert Emory Hunt Jr. has to say.

Hunt knows Cincinnati's Joe Burrow appears to be finding his groove, as he led the NFL in passing yards in Week 7 with 481. The quarterback will be missing playmaker Ja'Marr Chase, who could be out six weeks with a hip injury, but Tyler Boyd (155 yards last week) and Tee Higgins (455 this season) are more than capable. The Browns' defense is allowing almost 27 points per game, 29th in the NFL, while the Bengals are allowing fewer than 19 per contest (seventh).

Hunt also has considered that Burrow has never beaten the Browns (0-3), who have won seven of the past eight meetings. The Browns are fourth in the NFL in rushing, averaging more than 163 yards per game with Nick Chubb leading the way. The fifth-year pro leads the NFL with 740 rushing yards (105.7 per game), averages 5.9 per carry, and has scored eight touchdowns.
