Betting Preview for the Las Vegas Raiders vs Cleveland Browns Regular Season Week 15 Game on December 18, 2021
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland
When: Saturday, December 18, 2021, 4:30 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NFLN
Betting on the Las Vegas Raiders (+6)
Regular Season Record: 6-7
The Raiders got absolutely walloped by the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, as Derek Carr and company suffered a 48-9 loss at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 14. Las Vegas needs a short memory, forget about that contest, and focus on the Browns, who are seemingly beatable no matter what week it is. Even though they got beat hard by Kansas City, the Raiders can still feel happy about wide receiver Hunter Renfrow, who led all catches with 117 receiving yards to go with a touchdown on 13 receptions and 14 targets. Tight end Darren Waller has missed the last two Raiders game due to back and knee injuries, but Renfrow has proven to be more than capable to absorb a heavier load in Las Vegas’ passing attack that is still top five in the NFL.
The Raiders are 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 road games versus a team with a winning home record.
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (-6)
Regular Season Record: 7-6
The Browns have seemingly perfected the art of not looking good even in wins. Cleveland was exactly that in Week 14’s 24-22 home win over the Baltimore Ravens. Nevertheless, a win is a win, and the Browns will take one any way they can, especially at the expense of a divisional rival. The Browns got 190 passing yards and two touchdowns with an interception from Baker Mayfield, while the team’s ground attack registered 100 yards on 29 carries. More success in their rushing could be waiting for the Browns in Week 15, considering how porous the Raiders’ defense is against the run. The Raiders had just allowed 132 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns to the Chiefs, and that must have Cleveland salivating. The Browns are top five in the NFL in rushes per game and rushing touchdowns per contest.
The Browns are also 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 home games versus a team with a losing road record.
The Browns win, 23-21.
