Tara Austin's Week 6 "Lock"
By: Tara Austin | Posted: October 13, 2012
Browns +2 vs. Bengals
We finally got a win last week! Let’s try to make it a habit. The Browns are the cellar dwellers. And, I picked these guys to have the #1 overall pick in the draft next year. But, when teams are 0-5 and look awful, they tend to be undervalued and that is the best time to bet on them. CB Joe Haden returns for the Browns and Dalton is already struggling anyway, throwing 2 picks last week. With Scott out for the season, the Bengals rushing attack is not as strong either. While the Browns have certainly had their woes on offense, Weeden looks better and more composed as each week passes, and Richardson is just a beast. The Bengals are 1-8-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 11 games v. the AFC and the underdog is 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings between these squads. The Browns need a win and I expect to see them get it here as they win one of the ugliest and least watched games of the weekend.
