Bengals vs Browns MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Tee Higgins - Receiving Yards: Over 79.5 (-110)

With Ja'Marr Chase sidelined for the next few weeks, his 10.6 targets per game this season are up for grabs. One player who should benefit from Chase's absence is Tee Higgins, whose increased workload should help him hit the over on his receiving yards prop tonight. For starters, Higgins has topped 90 receiving yards in three of his last four games despite sharing the field with Chase, so he should get even more attention from Joe Burrow tonight. Furthermore, Cleveland is allowing 260.3 receiving yards per game at home, which ranks seventh-worst in the NFL. Needless to say, this is a prop worth taking advantage of.

2. Nick Chubb - Any Time Touchdown (-120)

Even with the Browns having their fair share of struggles, Nick Chubb has continued being money out of the backfield. The elite rusher leads the league with 8 rushing touchdowns on the season and has found the end zone in five of his last six games. There's a good chance that Chubb can continue his scoring success against the Bengals, who have allowed him to score four times in his last three games against them. Given Chubb's dominance in Cleveland's run-heavy offense, it wouldn't be surprising to see him hit paydirt again.

3. Amari Cooper - Receptions: Over 4.5 (-102)

It didn't take long for Amari Cooper to emerge as Cleveland's No. 1 wide receiver, as he currently leads the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. Though Cooper has failed to hit the over on this prop in three of his last four games, I don't anticipate that trend continuing tonight. For starters, he's averaged a healthy 8.8 targets over his last six games, seeing 10+ looks in four of those outings. Secondly, with the Browns projected to trail, the game script should be more pass-friendly for Cleveland. With division rivalries bringing out the best in most players involved, look for Cooper to be heavily involved and hit the over here.
