Have the Cleveland Browns fully recovered from the beating they received at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens? It seems like they have based on their Week 2 performance, but they shouldn’t let their momentum carry them away, with the young and thirsty Washington Football Team coming to town this week.

Betting on the Washington Football Team (+6.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-1
If Week 1 was fun for Washington, Week 2 was definitely a nightmare for Ron Rivera’s men. After a 27-17 win at home against the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington got destroyed by the Arizona Cardinals in a 30-15 loss in Glendale last Sunday. Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for 223 yards and a touchdown on 19-of-33 completions. If anything, he didn’t throw an interception despite getting endlessly harassed in the pocket, where he was sacked four times for a loss of 24 yards. As it stands, Washington is still lacking in talent on both ends of the field, but at least on their receiving corps, they have one of the best young playmakers in the game in the form of Terry McLaurin. The wideout had 125 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches against Arizona. He could blow up again in Week 3 against Cleveland’s shaky pass defense that’s 28th in the league with 277.5 passing yards allowed per game. Meanwhile, Washington’s pass rush should pose a huge threat to Cleveland’s offensive line. Washington sacked Carson Wentz eight times in Week 1 and Kyler Murray three times in Week 2.
The under is 6-2 in Washington’s last eight road games.
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (-6.5)
Regular Season Record: 1-1
Baker Mayfield and the Browns atoned for their atrocious Week 1 performance (38-6 road loss to the Baltimore Ravens) by beating Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, at home during Week 2’s Thursday Night Football game. Mayfield passed for 219 yards and two touchdowns with an interception while completing 16 of his 23 pass attempts. However, it was the Browns’ backfield that was unleashed and ate up the Bengals. Nick Chubb rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries, while Kareem Hunt had 86 rushing yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. Hunt also added a receiving touchdown for good measure. The Browns have arguably the best 1-2 punch in the backfield with Chubb and Hunt, who should be able to find their way against Washington’s defense that gave up 160 rushing yards and two touchdowns to Washington last Sunday. Also, the Browns have two full days more of rest than Washington, heading into Sunday’s match.
The Browns are 3-2 against the spread in their last five home games.
The Browns win, 30-21.
