Before you tune in to Sunday’s Browns vs. Bengals game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,800 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 9 of the 2021 season on an incredible 128-86 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Bengals vs. Browns, the model is backing Cincinnati (-2) to cover the spread at home. The Browns have struggled against the league’s best teams, and with the second-most wins in the AFC, Cincinnati classifies as just that. Cleveland is 0-3 straight up and against the spread versus teams currently above .500.
Cleveland has failed to cover nine straight games against fellow AFC North teams. On the other hand, Bengals’ quarterback Joe Burrow has shown great resiliency in his young NFL career. The Heisman winner is 7-1 against the spread following a straight-up loss, with Cincinnati falling to the Jets last week.
The Bengals won’t overlook Mayfield and the Browns like they did Mike White and the Jets. The model projects Cincinnati to cover the spread in over 50 percent of simulations.
