Cleveland Browns vs Arizona Cardinals Odds


The Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals have only met three times previously and the home team won and covered each time.

And in looking at the Week 15 betting line, the Cardinals seem a much better bet at -7.5 points, a line we expect to see climb during the week. The Cards have been improving and come off an upset of the 49ers.

Whether they continue the momentum from that win or bottom out in a dead spot in their schedule will decide the ATS winner.

Check the status of Cleveland QB Colt McCoy, who suffered a concussion in Week 14.
