Indianapolis has won seven of last eight against Cleveland

The Indianapolis Colts are 7-1 SU in their last eight games against the Cleveland Browns, but the Browns have a 4-1 ATS advantage over the last five games in this series. Both teams will try to pick up their first win of the season when the Colts host the Browns this Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • The Colts are 12-2 SU and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games at home after losing their most recent home game.
  • The Browns are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games in the early afternoon.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Browns’ last six games against the Colts.

Without Andrew Luck under center, Indianapolis’s offense is off to an anemic start in 2017. The Colts rank 29th in yards per game with 245.5 and 27th in points per game with 11. Indianapolis coughed up a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter in last Sunday’s 16-13 loss to Arizona.

Cleveland has only one win in its last 21 games and an abysmal 2-27 SU and 6-21-2 ATS record in its last 29. Rookie DeShone Kizer followed up a strong performance in his debut against Pittsburgh with an ugly one against Baltimore, completing only 15 of his 31 passes and throwing three interceptions with no touchdowns.

The Browns have lost each of their last 14 games on the road. Their last road win came in October 2015.
