Two No. 1 draft picks will meet on Sunday as Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns visit Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Cleveland (4-4) has lost three of its last four with the lone victory coming when Case Keenum started in place of Mayfield. The Bengals (5-3) have seen all three of their losses come by exactly three points, including last week’s defeat against the Jets. This AFC North rivalry is one of three divisional games in Week 9.
Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET from Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The Bengals are a two-point favorite in the latest Bengals vs. Browns odds according to Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points is 47.5. In select markets, Sunday’s matchup can be seen live on CBS and streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

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. Cincinnati is one of the most-balanced teams in the league as it ranks seventh in scoring offense and sixth in scoring defense. That makes Cincinnati one of three teams that rank in the top eight in both offense and defense, along with the NFL’s elite in the Cardinals and Bills.
As for Cleveland, it’s offense is in shambles thanks to injuries. Mayfield is clearly impaired due to his shoulder injury, while Jarvis Landry’s last game was filled with drops and an untimely fumble as he’s still rusty from spending a month on IR. Meanwhile, both Jack Conklin and Kareem Hunt are out, while the team dealt with the Odell Beckham Jr. saga all week. The Browns have rid themselves of the disgruntled receiver but that also robs Cleveland of one of the few playmakers it had left.
The model doesn’t have any Browns player even reaching 60 receiving yards, while Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are projected to combine for nearly 150 yards. Burrow is expected to pass for multiple TDs, which would be his ninth straight game doing so, and Cincinnati’s defense should rebound from last week’s performance. SportsLine’s model has Cincinnati covering the spread over 50 percent of the time.
Now that you know what to pick, get ready to watch your live local NFL on CBS games on Paramount+ on any device you want. Visit Paramount+ now to stream your live local CBS sporting events, including the NFL, SEC on CBS, and so much more
