Ben Brown: Bengals WR Tee Higgins — Over 5.5 receptions
Bet Gameplan: Playable to -120
• Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase run a similar profile of routes and are very much interchangeable as parts in this offense: Tyler Boyd runs 86% of his routes from the slot, with Higgins and Chase next to each other at 21.5% and 25.6%. Their aDot is also almost the exact same, with Boyd dominating more underneath on this recent three-game stretch. Yet with the most difficult matchup against Greg Newsome II in the slot, expect Boyd to turn into an afterthought as Higgins hits at least a 25% target share. If this one stays close throughout, it will be more than enough volume for Higgins to go over this prop number.
Arjun Menon: Browns RB Nick Chubb — Over 81.5 rush yards (-110)
Bet Gameplan: Playable to 83.5
PFF Greenline shows a 6.2% edge on Chubb logging at least 8 receiving yards for the fourth time in the past five games and 5th time overall this season. With not only Hunt's availability increasingly volatile but David Njoku already declared out, there should be ample opportunity for Chubb, who only needs one catch to cash. And with the Bengals' strength on defense in their secondary, it seems likely Cleveland will lean heavily on its best player every chance it gets.
