Ravens At Browns Betting Insights

Why The Browns Can Cover The Spread

The Ravens may not only be down Lamar Jackson, but also backup Tyler Huntley if he doesn’t clear concussion protocol. If that’s the case, Oregon rookie Anthony Brown will be the guy, who looked overwhelmed last week against Pittsburgh. Brown saw the pocket collapse on him quickly and exhibited little pocket awareness. Against talented pass rushers like Myles Garrett, Brown could be in for a long outing.

Cleveland also boasts one of the bigger home field advantages due to the regular miserable conditions and the stadium still being outdoors.

Deshaun Watson looked better in his second start than his first, if only slightly. Continued improvement is necessary against a Ravens defense that’s sixth in rushing success rate allowed. Amari Cooper is also a much better receiver at home this season, recording 91.2 yards (fifth) against just 35.5 yards per game on the road (87th! excluding neutral Detroit vs. the Bills).

Why The Ravens Can Cover The Spread

The bottom line is, Watson looks like a QB who hasn’t played an NFL game in two full seasons. In two games under Watson, the Browns offense has scored one single touchdown on offense. Even with Brown as the starting QB in Baltimore, the run game– led now by JK Dobbins– and defense gets the job done enough to beat teams scoring few points. Their last two games were wins while scoring 10 and 16 points.

The Ravens are also excellent against the run, which is the only crutch the Browns have on offense at the moment. Their unit should be good enough to slow down Nick Chubb, who’s rushed for just 114 yards over the last two games combined.

Not only can Baltimore cover on the road here regardless of who suits up at QB, but they’re good enough to win in Cleveland outright.

Reasons To Bet The Over

Just one game involving the Browns this season has gone under 40 points, their last (a 23-10 loss to the Bengals). It’s hard to argue with the point total set– the weather is going to be iconically Cleveland, the Browns offense is a mess, and the Ravens are playing a third-string undrafted rookie at QB with no receivers.

The lone reason to pull the trigger on the over in this game is if it falls to laughably-low totals. At , it’s butting up on that territory.

Reasons To Bet The Under

All the aforementioned reasons point to the point total going under in this one, even at 37.5. Barring a rushing explosion from either team or Watson inexplicably returning to 2018 form, this is going to be a low-scoring defensive slugfest.

Ravens At Browns Props: Matchups To Watch For

Amari Cooper Vs. Playing At Home: Kinda joking, kinda not. The splits between Cooper playing at home versus on the road are truly astonishing and continuing. Keen bettors will look for an over/under on his receiving props that more closely resemble his season as a whole and ones set under 70 points. Even with Watson in the lineup, Cooper saw 16 targets in the last two games combined.

Conversely, if the line is set high– over 85– on the basis that he’s playing at home, it may behoove bettors to take the under. However, given the passing struggles, it’s hard to imagine this line is going to be over 60 or 70 yards. There’s real opportunity here for Cooper, who’s still seeing a large portion of the targets.

Nick Chubb Vs. Ravens Run Defense: Chubb has been uncharacteristically ineffective the last two games. Against the Bengals, Chubb managed just 34 yards at 2.7 yards per carry and was held far from the end zone. Against the Texans– the NFL’s worst run defense– Chubb still came up with just 80 yards. Now, he plays a stiff Ravens run defense.

Baltimore is allowing 3.8 yards per carry, third-fewest in the NFL. Building off Watson’s struggle to the start of his season, Baltimore can load the box and take Cleveland’s run game right out of it.

Final Thoughts

Don’t forget to get your bets in on time for this game since it kicks Saturday. These are two offenses in dark places currently, one of which is due to growing pains with Watson back in the lineup. What should have been a battle for AFC North supremacy has turned into a battle for playoff eligibility and pride. The Browns are 2-2 in division this year with one loss to the Ravens already.

Fans of clean and high-flying football might want to look away for this one. Everyone else might want to hold their nose and play the under here.

Best of luck betting the Browns Ravens odds in this game.
