The poor Cleveland Browns. The team simply cannot buy a win and are in real jeopardy of going all season without one. This week the Browns will head to Baltimore to take on divisional rivals the Baltimore Ravens in a week 10 Thursday Night Football match-up. The Browns are coming off their ninth straight loss, with a 35-10 loss at home against the Dallas Cowboys. The Ravens, on the other hand, are coming off a big win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Browns are seen as the worst team in the NFL, having gone nine games without a single victory. The team does have rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman back which will help on offense, although he was not a major factor last week against Dallas. Of their nine losses, only four of them have seen the Browns stay within the 10 points they are getting this week. Of their five road games, two of those games factor into those four. Most weeks they also play games that surpass the 45 point mark, as their defense is not very good.
The Ravens have been an up and down type of team this season. As a result, they sit at .500 with a 4-4 record on the season. In their four wins, their largest margin of victory was seven points, meaning they would have never covered a 10 point spread. In addition, the Ravens have a very solid defense, but an average offense, meaning the majority of their games end up below the 45 over/under in this one. The team is coming off the high of a big win over the Steelers a week ago, meaning that if you are into live betting on the NFL, this could set up to be a bit of a trap game.
When all is said and done, I do think the Ravens come out on top. But this one could certainly be closer than many are expecting. I seem to get sucked into the Browns a lot only to be disappointed, but I am rolling the dice on this one more time. All the factors point to the Ravens being unable to cover the 10 points, even though they should still be able to beat the lowly Browns.
Line: Bal -10, O/U: 45
Pick: Browns and the under
Result: Bal 28 – Cle 7, Ravens and the under
