The Line: Cleveland Browns +1.5 -- Over/Under: 46.5
The Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns meet Sunday in NFL action at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The Seattle Seahawks look for another road victory to build on their impressive 4-1 record. The Seattle Seahawks have won five of their last seven road games. Russell Wilson is completing 73.1 percent of his passes for 1,409 yards, 12 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 15 of his last 17 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 646 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 122.6 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 380 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 23.6 points and 350.6 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 50 tackles, Quinton Jefferson has two sacks and Bradley McDougald has one interception.
The Cleveland Browns need a statement victory here to get back to a .500 record. The Cleveland Browns have split their last eight home games. Baker Mayfield is completing 55.9 percent of his passes for 1,247 yards, four touchdowns and eight interceptions. Mayfield has at least one interception in all five games this season. Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. have combined for 738 receiving yards and one touchdown while Nick Chubb has 15 receptions. The Cleveland Browns ground game is averaging 112.4 yards per contest, and Chubb leads the way with 485 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Cleveland is allowing 24.4 points and 357.2 yards per game. Joe Schobert leads the Cleveland Browns with 54 tackles, Myles Garrett has seven sacks and Devaroe Lawrence has one interception.
The Seahawks are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in October and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 6. The Browns are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games on grass. The favorite is 3-0-2 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the home team is 3-0-2 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 20-8-1 in Browns last 29 home games. The over is 11-3 in Seahawks last 14 games overall.
The Seattle Seahawks are 4-8-1 ATS in their last 13 games as a road favorite. The Cleveland Browns have split their last 10 games ATS as a home underdog. The Seahawks rely on Wilson to do a whole lot, and while they're finding ways to win, three of their four victories have been decided by two or less points. On the flip side, the Browns have looked awful more times than not this season and at some point we have to admit it's the same old Browns. You can talk about the talent on both sides of the ball all you want, this team continues to lose SU and still isn't covering numbers. I have no choice but to side with the team that finds ways to win, even if they're too close for comfort.
