Cleveland is 5-20-1 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a bye week. New England is 45-19 ATS in their last 64 games overall and 21-6 ATS in their last 27 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. Cleveland is 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in New England.

This is a prime look-ahead spot for New England with a matchup with another division leader in Baltimore on deck, and the Pats are on a short week while the Browns have had their bye week to rest up and prepare for this game. However, this Patriots team is stomping holes in teams left and right. You can argue that the Pats have had an easy schedule, but the defense has still suffocated the opponents and made up for whatever deficiencies the offense has had this season. The Browns have played better on the road than at home as that’s where both of their wins have come this season, but I just think that the Browns are in over their heads here. I’ll lay the points with New England in another beatdown.
