The Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns meet in a week 16 AFC North division matchup from FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Baltimore is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 division games. Cleveland is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 division games and 6-22-2 ATS in their last 30 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 16-5 in their last 21 games as a home underdog. Baltimore is 8-2-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Cleveland.

Cleveland as a home dog is tempting, but realistically the Browns have nothing but pride to play for at this point and this Cleveland team is just a mess right now. Baltimore would clinch home field with a win here, and the Ravens are also just playing better football right now. I think this is a game that the Ravens win by at least two scores, so I’ll lay the points with Baltimore here.
