NFL Week 7 Betting Preview for Cleveland Browns at Baltimore

Cleveland Browns Betting Preview: Browns Drop Third Straight

As a result of Sunday’s 38-15 home loss to the Patriots, the Browns are currently on a three-game losing run for just the second time under Head Coach Kevin Stefanski. One touchdown and three field goals were all that Cleveland’s offense could muster against a stout Patriots defense. 

Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett threw two interceptions along with a touchdown for a total of 266 yards finishing with the lowest passer rating (54.5) he’s had all year. For the first time all season, the Browns’ running game was also held down, as they only managed 70 yards on 18 carries. The Patriots’ defense forced four turnovers and sacked Brissett four times.

The Cleveland Browns defensive unit struggled as they conceded 38 points at home to the Patriots. In the end, Cleveland had just two sacks and forced one turnover. The Browns were unable to take advantage of their matchup with rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe and now rank 23rd in the NFL in total yards allowed per game (361.3). 

Baltimore Ravens Betting Preview: Ravens Look to Bounceback at Home

The Ravens continuously shot themselves in the foot all day long in their 24-20 loss to the New York Giants. All three of their losses this year have seen them blow fourth-quarter leads. In terms of total yards, the Ravens outgained the Giants, 406-238, held Saquon Barkley to 83 yards on 22 carries, and limited Daniel Jones to 173 while grabbing four sacks. Ultimately, it wasn’t enough, and the Ravens dropped their third game of the season.

The performance of the running game, and especially the offensive line was a major bonus in Sunday’s defeat. The Ravens have been dealt with some injuries and still had 211 running yards, with Kenyon Drake leading the way with a whopping 119 yards on ten carries. The Ravens’ offense averages 361.3 yards per game, ranking ninth in the NFL.

Baltimore’s defense picked up four sacks and forced a turnover against the Giants, but they still lost 24-20. Overall, their defense allows 371.2 yards per contest, ranking 25th in the league. They’ll have a good chance to bounce back at home against a shaky Browns offense.

Betting Lines & Odds 

The Baltimore Ravens are the betting favorites in this game, according to Mybookie, with the spread set at 6 points (-110). In terms of the moneyline, the Browns are given +225 odds to win, while the Ravens are given -265 odds. The Over/Under for the contest is currently 45.5 points.

Free Betting Pick

The Baltimore Ravens come into this matchup having rotated wins and losses up to this point. At home, they will have a good chance to bounce back against a Browns team that has lost three straight games. Unfortunately, they haven’t played well at home this year, winning just one of their first three contests. 

Baltimore has had major fourth-quarter issues, and the Browns are desperate for a win. In their last three contests against each other, the Browns have kept the game within six points. That being said, I like the Browns to cover the spread here on the road. They don’t have the most potent offense, but leaning on that strong running game should keep this one close.

NFL Betting Prediction: Browns +6
