The Browns Might Just Be Better Than Ya Think

The Cleveland Browns are facing the Denver Broncos and will look to keep their momentum going after winning 3 of their last 4 games following their last outing with a win over a high powered Carolina Panthers team. Without saying much more, the Broncos are not a very good team overall. If you were to compare the Broncos on a good night compared to Panthers on a bad night, I would still take the Panthers. Baker Mayfield has thrown for 2,877 yards 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 64.4% passing. Cleveland leading rusher is Nick Chubb who has racked up 760 yards and 6 touchdowns. Cleveland defense is giving up on average 22.5 points per game.

The Broncos and Case Keenum look to bounce back after a terrible loss last week to the 49ers (20-14). Case Keenum has thrown for 3,139yards 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The main weapon for the Broncos offensively tonight will be Phillip Lindsay who has rushed for 967 yards and 9 touchdowns this season.

Let’s take a look at what these teams have done Against theSpread this season; Cleveland is 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 road games and4-11 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a losing record. Denver is3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games following a loss.

Prediction:

Tonight there are a lot of things to consider before making your pick. Baker Mayfield has the best passer rating of any quarterback in theNFL the last 5 games and the browns are having the greatest amount of single season success in recent memory. With that being said if the Cleveland Browns can slow the game down and control Phillip Lindsay I think they can pull out a victory tonight against the Denver Broncos. My prediction is Cleveland Browns ML shutting down the Denver Offense and causing turnovers.
