Cleveland Browns vs Baltimore Ravens Odds

4-10TEAM RECORD10-4

The Cleveland Browns have lost seven straight to the Baltimore Ravens and are just 1-6 ATS in those games, an indication that bettors will continue to pound the favorite line here in Week 16.

Baltimore opened as 14-point chalk and they have motivation to win big here after the rival Steelers lost on MNF. The Browns meanwhile have lost 6 straight on the road this year while the Ravens are 17-1 SU at home over the past few seasons.

While bettors like the Ravens to win straight up, they should be leery of their record when favored by double digits - they are just 1-7 ATS in the past 8 in this situation.
