2012-2013 Regular Season: 5-11 SU | 8-7-1 ATS
A winning record was something the Cleveland Browns have not had in quite a while and last season they put up the AFC North’s worst record: 5-11 SU. It was punctuated by a 3-game SU and ATS losing streak, which led to a coaching change. The team treated bettors well, putting up an attractive 8-7-1 ATS card – second best in the division.
The Browns are hoping that new coach Rob Chudzinski can get the team out of its slump during which they’ve only won 19 wins over the last 4 seasons. The team’s leading passer, rusher, and receiver were all rookies last season. Cleveland has a plus/minus of 6 wins in the 2013 regular season total wins odds.
Cleveland opens up their season with a home game against the Miami Dolphins who have yet to win a game on Cleveland’s new home turf where the Browns are 3-0 SU and ATS in the last 3 vs. Miami. Next Cleveland goes on the road against the defending champion Baltimore Ravens. Though they are just 1-6 SU in their last 7 games in Baltimore, the Browns are 3-0 ATS in their last 3 games there. Moreover, they have won against the spread in 5 of their last 7 games at the Ravens’ stadium.
Key NFL Betting matchups of 2013 NFL Season:
Week 2 vs. Baltimore Ravens: nothing changes people’s perceptions of a bottom-dwelling franchise more than defeating the champs.
Week 4 vs. Cincinnati Bengals: the Browns are 3-1 ATS in their last 4 home games against Cincinnati.
Cleveland Browns bettors should pay attention to:
-The progress of second year QB Brandon Weeden and the performance of first-round pick Barkevious Mingo
-The Browns are coming off a 5-2 home ATS season – the best in AFC North last season.
