Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (12-2)
The Ravens extended their winning streak to 10 games after downing the New York Jets in Week 15, 42-21. It was such an easy win for the Ravens that they were even able to cover their spread as 17-point favorites. Jackson tossed five touchdowns on his way to finishing the night with 212 passing yards on 15-of-23 completions. He also led his team with 86 rushing yards. The version of Jackson and the Ravens heading into Week 16’s rematch with the Browns were way more improved than the one Cleveland beat back in Week 4. Jackson is now a million times more confident in his abilities to evade and outsmart opposing defenses and the Ravens’ stop unit has since added an elite secondary weapon in Marcus Peters. The Browns’ hype has already died several times since that game against the Ravens, so Baltimore has a lot going for them heading into the weekend.
The Ravens, who are no. 1 in the NFL with 33.7 points per game, are 7-2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (6-8)
Browns gonna Browns. Another week, another disappointment turn of events for Cleveland, which suffered an embarrassing 38-24 road loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. To be toyed like that by an offense led by a rookie quarterback in Kyler Murray and scored on for four rushing touchdowns by a former Miami Dolphin in Kenyan Drake was another sign of the Browns hitting rock bottom. Defensively, the Browns didn’t look they had any urges to win anymore, as they allowed Drake and company rack up 226 rushing yards on just 35 carries. If anything, at least running back Nick Chubb showed signs of life by rushing for 127 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. Chubb was a major reason why the Browns beat Baltimore in Week 6, as he ran all over the Ravens’ defense back then, compiling 165 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries. He and Kareem Hunt will look to drill into the Ravens’ defense that allowed 103 rushing yards to the Jets.
The Browns are 3-2 ATS in their last five games.
The Browns win, 30-27.
