Cleveland has a chance this week against Baltimore to get back to the .500 mark and start thinking about the playoffs again. Football betting odds have the Browns as slight favorites in this game.
NFL betting on Cleveland was popular to start this season but the Browns started off poorly and gamblers jumped off the bandwagon. It might be time to jump back on. The Browns are starting to play better and quarterback Derek Anderson is hanging on to the ball. He has not thrown an interception in his last three games according to NFL betting stats. "It's like we've talked about for a long time in that if you don't have turnovers, you've got a chance to win in this league," Anderson said. Cleveland is also playing well in the fourth quarter. They have scored 62 points in the fourth quarter while giving up only 16 according to NFL betting stats.
Since Baltimore and Cleveland are division rivals they meet twice every season so we have a lot of NFL betting numbers to look at. The Ravens have won 6 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams straight up but it is the Browns that are 6-4 against the NFL betting number in those games. Earlier this season, the Ravens routed the Browns 28-10 at home according to football betting numbers. Last year the Browns won both meetings between the two teams according to football betting stats. In the last five games at Cleveland, the Browns have won three and lost two according to football betting numbers. The Browns have been a great home favorite since 2005, winning over 70% of the time according to NFL betting stats.
The NFL betting total is interesting in this game because normally you might think of taking the under when Baltimore and Cleveland play. The problem with taking the under in NFL betting is that the last four meetings between the two teams have gone over the NFL betting number. Overall, the Browns have gone under the total about 65% of the time since 2005 at home according to NFL betting stats.
