Patriots versus Browns Odds & Prediction - NFL Week 6 Betting Pick

Patriots versus Browns Odds & Prediction – NFL Week 6 Betting Pick

We have known that there has been parity in the NFL for quite some time, but it is really evident this season, with the majority of teams all sitting around the same record. If things stay the same, we are going to be looking at an exciting run down the homestretch. For now, though, we are simply focusing on the games coming this weekend, starting with the New England Patriots taking a trip to Cleveland to face the Browns. Both of these teams are sitting at 2-3 after the opening 5 weeks of the season, so both could really use a win here, as dropping a couple of games below .500, even this early in the year, will make a trip to the postseason that much more difficult to achieve. It is the Browns who are in as a 3-point home favorite, with the point total set at 43 ½. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming match between Patriots and Browns, so you can bet against their NFL Odds.

Why bet on the New England Patriots

It has been hard to get a bead on the Patriots this season, and while they are just 2-3 on the season, they losses that they have taken have all been against the better teams in the league. They are, though, coming off arguably their best game of the season, beating the Detroit Lions 29-0 last weekend. Where they have had some serious issues is on the road, with New England winning just 1 of their last 6 games away from Foxboro. On the flipside, the Patriots have won 8 of their last 9 meetings with Cleveland. They have also been a good bet against the spread when going against the Browns, covering in 7 of the last 9, but they have also failed to cover in their last 5 conference games. The OVER has hit in 6 of their last 9 games.

Why bet on the Cleveland Browns

The Browns started the season with a win, but they have struggled to keep things rolling since, losing 3 of their last 4 games. Going back to last season, the Browns are now just 3-6 SU in their last 9 games, but things are a whole lot worse when playing teams from the AFC East, with Cleveland going 4-13 SU in their last 17 games against teams from that specific division. They have also not been a very good bet against the spread, covering just once in their 5 games against the AFC East, as well as being 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. 5 of their last 7 meetings with the Patriots have gone OVER the point total. Not a lot to like about the Browns here, so what I am going to say in my prediction might come as a bit of a surprise. 

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Browns are perhaps a little unlucky not to have a better record, as they have made a habit of shooting themselves in the foot this season. They are due for a game where they put it all together, and this might be the one.
