The Cleveland Browns are rolling, and that’s something people don’t get to say too often. After two wins in a row, Baker Mayfield and company are looking to make it three straight when they meet the Dallas Cowboys, who are coming off a beating at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks on the road. Back at home, will the Cowboys get back in the win column? Or will the Browns extend their win streak?

Betting on the Cleveland Browns (+5)
Regular Season Record: 2-1
The Browns are above .500 for the first time since 2014, thanks to their 30-24 home win over the Washington Football Team last Sunday. They are being lifted by a strong ground attack led by the duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, though, it was the former that wreaked havoc in the Washington game. Chunn carved up Washington’s defense for 108 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. Hunt had 46 rushing yards on 16 carries, but he made his mark in the passing attack by catching a touchdown. Chubb now has 292 rushing yards through three games to go with four rushing scores — tied for most in the NFL. Dallas’ run defense can be dependable on the ground, but it could break against Chubb, especially if it gets loosened by Cleveland’s passing game. Baker Mayfield is coming off a solid game as well, passing for 156 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover on 16-of-23 pass completions. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry could have fun against Dallas’ secondary that gave up 210 receiving yards and four touchdowns to the pair of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett last Sunday.
The over is 3-1 in the Browns’ last four games overall.
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (-5)
Regular Season Record: 1-2
Turnovers are killing the Cowboys, who lost to the Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 3, 38-31. Dak Prescott passed for 472 passing yards and three touchdowns on 37-of-57 completions but had two interceptions against Seattle. He also lost a fumble to make three giveaways in the afternoon. So far this season, the Cowboys are 28th in the league in ball security, as they average 2.0 turnovers per game. Cleveland has a talented offense that can turn any bonus ball possessions into points, so Dallas will have to be extra careful in executing the attack. Of course, the Cowboys’ defense that was toyed by Russell Wilson for 295 passing yards and five touchdowns has to show sharper teeth. Going back to the offense, running back Ezekiel Elliott was frustrated by Seattle’s defense, so he’s also another Cowboy looking to right the ship. Elliott finished the game with just 34 rushing yards on 14 carries. He scored a rushing TD, but that was not enough to salvage the day for him.
The Cowboys are 2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games as the home team.
The Browns win, 30-27.
