Why bet on Cleveland versus New England?
The Browns demolished Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9. The most impressive part about the 41-16 victory was how Cleveland’s D picked off Burrow twice. One one of the interceptions, Denzel Ward scored a 99-yard TD. The Browns’ defense appears to be rounding into it’s best form. That’s bad news for Jones and New England’s offense.

Why bet on New England versus Cleveland?
If not for an overtime loss to the very good Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots would be looking for their fifth straight victory on Sunday. New England has won games by dominating on the scoreboard, the Pats beat the Jets 54-13, and by leaning on their defense, New England went to SoFi Stadium and upset the Chargers 27-24.

Cleveland Browns versus New England Patriots Final Betting Prediction
Cleveland has talent on both sides of the football. But the Browns greatest strength is rushing the pigskin. Unfortunately, New England is very good at stopping the rush.
If the Browns can’t lean on Nick Chubb, they will have to turn to Baker Mayfield. The former Heisman Trophy winner can be up or down.
The guess here is that he’ll have a down game because few coaches can put together a specific game plan to frustrate an opposing quarterback like Bill Belichick. Not only that, but Cleveland is 1-8 against the spread after a dominating victory.
The Browns are the perfect bounce candidate. New England wins and covers.
