The Line: Denver Broncos +3.5 -- Over/Under: 39
The Cleveland Browns and the Denver Broncos will match up on the NFL gridiron Sunday.
Cleveland enters this game at 2-5 overall. The Browns have wins over the Jets and Ravens but have otherwise lost to the Titans, Rams, 49ers, Seahawks and Patriots.
In the loss to the Pats, Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield put up 194 yards, one TD and one INT, while Nick Chubb had 131 yards rushing. Tops in receiving there was Jarvis Landry on 65 yards from five catches.
Over on the Broncos’ side, they’re 2-6 this year. Denver put up wins over the Chargers and Titans but they’ve fallen to the Bears, Packers, Jaguars, Chiefs and Colts otherwise.
In the loss to Indianapolis, Denver QB Joe Flacco posted 174 yards and Phillip Lindsay led the rush on 59 yards. Courtland Sutton had three receptions for 72 yards to lead the team there.
The Browns are 21-43-1 ATS in their last 65 overall and 9-23 in their last 32 in November. Cleveland is 0-4 ATS in their last four in Week 9 and 0-5 ATS in their last five on grass.
Meanwhile, the Broncos are 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 on grass. Denver is 2-6 ATS in their last eight in November and 0-5 ATS in their last five in Week 9.
Remember when Cleveland was a preseason Super Bowl contender? Neither do I. It’s been pretty much all disappointment for the Browns, who have fallen victim to a pretty tough schedule thus far and can’t gain any traction.
That said, this Broncos game represents the start of a stretch of “I dunno” games down the stretch, and call me crazy but Cleveland could finish 9-7 or (perish the thought) 10-6 if they can get it together. I’m going to roll with the Browns against a vulnerable Denver team here, but this could also be the spot where the team runs off the rails and burns out in a blaze. Again.
