At the onset of the season, the Browns were touted as the hot new thing. Cleveland’s success in a few meaningless games at the end of last season was enough to send “experts” out of their collective minds. So far this year the Browns have been an NFL Bets disappointment. Cleveland proved to not be ready for prime time with a blowout Monday Night loss at San Francisco. Meanwhile, the Seahawks are primed for a deep run to the postseason. Quarterback Russell Wilson is proving the worth of his megabucks contract signed last spring.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Cleveland Browns Overview
Seattle has an offshore bookmaker record of 4-1 straight up, 2-3 vs. the odds, and 3-2 over the total. Last week the Seahawks scored a 30-29 Thursday night home win over the Rams. Seattle ranks seventh in the NFL for total offense and 19th for points allowed. As a result, they are half a game behind the 49ers for first place in the NFC West.
By contrast, the Browns are 2-3 both straight up and vs. the spread with three under. Cleveland ranks 25th in the NFL for scoring offense and 21st for points allowed. Of great concern is the erratic play of quarterback Baker Mayfield. After being touted as MVP material by the fanboys over the summer he is falling short. Questions about his maturity have been proven legitimate.
