The Cleveland Browns have reasons to feel good, as they are likely to play in the playoffs this year after a long postseason drought. But nothing is certain, especially when you’re playing the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars have not tasted a win since Week 1, but it’s a team that can still bite and hurt teams who take them for granted. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Cleveland Browns vs Jacksonville Jaguars Regular Season Week 12 Game on November 29, 2020
Where: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville
When: Sunday, November 29, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (-6.5)
Regular Season Record: 7-3
It’s quite a luxury for the Browns to have the best 1-2 punch on the ground game in running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. In their 22-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday, the Browns got 114 rushing yards on 20 carries from Chubb, while Hunt scored a rushing touchdown. Look out for them to have a big game against the Jags’ faulty run defense. But Cleveland’s defense also needs to be praised for its job in walloping Philly. The Browns sacked Carson Wentz five times for a loss of 26 yards for the Eagles and intercepted him twice, with one getting returned for a touchdown by Sione Takitaki. The Browns are going to miss Myles Garrett in Week 12, but Olivier Vernon is coming off a three-sack game. With Vernon showing he can be relied upon even without Garrett, the Browns should be able to silence Jacksonville’s lackluster offense and poor pass protection that is 25th in the league with a 7.37 offensive sack percentage.
The under is 3-0 in the Browns’ last three games overall.
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (+6.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-9
We still don’t know which quarterback will start for the Jaguars in Week 12, but does it really matter? Gardner Minshew has reportedly started throwing again after missing games due to a thumb injury, but the team can still continue having Jake Luton under center. Whichever starter Jacksonville will have against the Browns, at least the offensive line will not have to deal with Myles Garrett, who’s out this week, as mentioned earlier. The Browns will not also have cornerback Denzel Ward, which is a plus for the Jags’ offense that is so prone to turning the ball over. A bright spot this season for the Jags is undrafted running back James Robinson, who rushed for 73 yards on 17 carries in their 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at home in Week 11. Robinson has 762 rushing yards (third in the NFL) and five touchdowns this season.
The under is 3-1 in the Jags’ last four home games. Jacksonville has also covered the spread in two of its last three games overall.
The Browns win, 27-17.
