The Battle of Ohio on Halloween night will answer a bunch of questions surrounding two AFC North teams. Which Bengals player benefits the most from Ja’Marr Chase’s absence? Is Amari Cooper home field-dependent?
Fans can discover the answers to these hard-hitting questions when the Cleveland Browns (2-5) host in-state and divisional rival Cincinnati Bengals (4-3) on Monday Night Football.
Player props and touchdown scorer bets are now available for bettors to wager on as they enjoy this Week 8 divisional matchup on primetime.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns Odds
Cincinnati – priced between -150 and -180 on the moneyline as of Monday morning – is favored by a field goal at most sportsbooks against the Browns (between +130 and +155) at the Dawg Pound.
Although Joe Burrow and the Bengals have been playing some lights-out football lately, they haven’t had the same success against Cleveland, who has won four straight meetings and seven of their last eight. Burrow is 0-3 against the Browns in his career.
The total (Over/Under) is set in a modest range between 45 and 45.5 points.

Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for MNF Week 8
Tyler Boyd Over 62.5 Receiving Yards (+104, Caesars)
Now that Chase is out, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd will see bigger target shares. However, it’s Boyd who bettors should be wagering on.
The slot receiver ranks third on the team in receptions (29) this season. However, his yards after catch per reception is the highest on the team. Simply put, he’s far more dangerous once he gets the ball in his hands.
The Browns’ tissue-soft defense has surrendered big plays all season. They give up the second highest yards-after-catch average in the NFL (11.8 per catch), so Boyd may come out of Halloween night with a new collection of explosive plays to add to his 2022 highlight reel.

Amari Cooper Over 52.5 Receiving Yards (-113, FanDuel), Anytime TD Scorer (+200, Caesars)
There’s just something about being in the comfort of your own home that makes you more productive. Cooper understands this better than most.
All four of Cooper’s 2022 scores have come in home outings, compared to zero scores on the road. The reason for this is simple: usage. Cleveland’s top receiver has seen double-digit targets in each of his four games at FirstEnergy Stadium, which he has converted into 76-plus receiving yards in three of them. Cooper is averaging 80.5 yards at home and just 33.3 yards on the road.

Nick Chubb Anytime TD Scorer (-120, DraftKings & FanDuel)
Bettors have to lay very little juice if they want to back the league’s leading rushing touchdown scorer. Chubb has scored in five of his seven games (eight touchdowns total) this season.
Cincy has one of the strongest red zone defenses in the league, but Chubb possesses the power that can break through any fort. It may not take many trips to the red zone for the Browns’ brawny back to find the end zone.
