Browns battle Titans in Week 4 odds

Expect the line to hover around PK all week as the Tennessee Titans visit Cleveland to take on the Browns in Week 4 NFL odds action.

Minus injured WR Kenny Britt, the Titans offense will have to look to Nate Washington and others to make plays against a 2-1 Browns team. Both teams have surprisingly won two straight after opening-game losses.

The Browns are 3-1 SU and ATS the past four times against the Titans and they are 6-1 ATS past 7 as small fave or 2 or less points. While they get the job done for bettors as small chalk, the Titans don't get the job done as small faves (Titans 1-7 ATS past 8 as small underdog of 2 or less).
