Browns face Vikings in Week 3 odds
|Cleveland Browns||Minnesota Vikings|
|0-2||September 22, 2013, 01:00 | The Metrodome||0-2|
Having tallied a total of 16 points in losing their first two games of this season the Cleveland Browns go looking for better results when they run into the 0-2 Minnesota Vikings Sunday afternoon at the Metrodome (1 pm ET, CBS).
As of early this week the Brownies were getting five points from the Vikes, who just lost on a last-second score at Chicago.
The Browns are terrible on the road, as their 1-16 SU mark in 17 road games would indicate. The Vikings on the other hand are 7-1 SU in their past 8 home games.
However, as a favorite, Minnesota has been a money loser. The Vikings are 1-7-1 ATS in their past 9 games as a favorite.
The power rankings show a disparity between these teams, with the Vikings rated this week at No. 15 and the Browns sitting at No. 24. It may or may not play a role in OddsShark score prediction models that turned out a 15-10 result in favor of the Vikings this week.
In their last action, Cleveland was a 14-6 loser on the road against the Ravens. They failed to cover the 5.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (20) was profitable news for UNDER bettors. The Browns suffered a Week 2 loss against Baltimore in their last game, falling 14-6 at M&T Bank Stadium. Adrian Peterson went over the 100-yard mark (100) in his team's latest effort, but Chicago still defeated Minnesota by a score of 31-30.
