Football betting on Monday night has the Cleveland Browns hosting the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
The early season schedule for the Browns has been brutal and their record reflects it. The Browns had a bye last week but enter the game at 1-3. Many NFL betting experts predicted a big year from the Browns but so far they have been a bust.
Football betting odds have the New York Giants favored in this ESPN contest. NFL betting stats show that the two teams have played twice since the Browns got their new franchise. They met in 2004 at New York and the Giants won 27-10. They met in 2000 at Cleveland the Giants won 24-3. Both games went under the football betting number.
Football betting is always popular on Monday night and a long-time betting trend will be in effect for this game. The Monday Night Football home dog has always been popular among gamblers but has not been nearly as successful versus the football betting pointspread in recent years. The Giants have been a great road team both straight up and against the football betting pointspread in recent seasons. Last year they went on a great run on the road which concluded with a Super Bowl win. NFL betting stats show they are better than 75% against the spread the past three seasons on the road. Those numbers are unheard of in NFL betting. The Browns are nothing special as home underdogs versus the football betting pointspread. They are below .500 in that role the past three seasons according to football betting stats. Free NFL odds for Week 6 have New York favored in this game.
If you are looking at the football betting total in this game you should be aware that Cleveland has been a huge under team in recent seasons at home. Since 2005 they go under the total about 65% of the time at home according to football betting numbers. The Browns this season haven’t been clicking on offense with quarterback Derek Anderson so the Browns could end up going under the total in this Monday night football betting matchup.
