Ravens Poised to Extend Dominance over Winless Browns

ravens_defence

The Baltimore Ravens look to solidify an AFC wild-card spot on Sunday in a contest against the winless Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. Baltimore saw a three-game SU surge halted by last week’s 39-38 loss in Pittsburgh as a 6-point underdog, while Cleveland dropped its 14th straight in a 27-21 home loss to Green Bay.

Shark Bites
  • The Browns are 0-15 SU and 1-13-1 ATS in their last 15 games vs divisional opponents.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Browns’ last 15 games in December.
  • The Ravens are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games after consecutive ATS wins.

The 7-6 Ravens have won and covered in four of six outings to move into a three-way tie with Buffalo and the Los Angeles Chargers for the second AFC wild-card spot. Baltimore has been a dismal road performer, going 3-9 SU in its past 12, and is a middling 6-7 SU and 4-8-1 ATS in its past 13 as road chalk. However, the Ravens offense has impressed in recent outings, tallying 28.7 points per game over the past nine games, generating a 7-1-1 run for the OVER.

Cleveland’s epic struggles continued with last week’s heartbreaking overtime loss to the Packers. The Browns’ 21 points marked their highest offensive output at home since October 2016. However, the loss as 2.5-point underdogs extends their dismal ATS run at home to 4-17-1. Cleveland is also winless SU in 13 straight when pegged as a home underdog of 6 or more points, scoring 13 or fewer points in 10 of those contests.

Not surprisingly, Baltimore has dominated the Browns in recent years, going 16-2 SU in 18 meetings, and has held Cleveland to just 17 total points in their past two matchups.
