Ravens Facing Huge Chalk Against Hapless Browns

The seemingly endless pattern of underwhelming Thursday Night Football games continues in Week 10 when the Baltimore Ravens welcome the Cleveland Browns to M&T Bank Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The Ravens are 1-7 SU in their last eight games after winning as an underdog.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Browns' last eight games.
  • The Ravens are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games at home against teams with losing records.

Oddsmakers opened the Ravens as 10.5-point favorites with an OVER/UNDER of 45.5.

The winless Browns rank as the second-worst bet in the NFL at 2-7 ATS, just barely above the lowly San Francisco 49ers, who have only managed one cover so far. Cleveland has found success playing on Thursday, however, evidenced by the Browns posting a 5-1 ATS record in their previous six TNF tilts.

UNDER bettors love seeing these squads collide in Maryland. The UNDER is 4-1 in the last five meetings between the Browns and Ravens in Baltimore.

Banking on the Browns to cover the spread away from Ohio has been a brutal idea lately. Cleveland is 0-10 SU and just 3-7 ATS in its past 10 road games.

Browns quarterback Cody Kessler went 19 of 27 for 203 yards and one touchdown as his team was hammered 35-10 by the Dallas Cowboys. Kessler has performed admirably since regaining the starting role, and the coaching staff has made it clear this next run of games will be his audition for a full-time job.

Cleveland’s defense has been absolutely atrocious. In last week’s loss, the Browns allowed 25+ points for the 10th consecutive game dating back to last season.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Baltimore Ravens were listed as -8-point favorites at Bovada and other online Sportsbooks, with the total listed at one point at 44.
