  • With Lamar Jackson as their starter, the Baltimore Ravens are 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS behind the former Heisman Trophy Sportsbook and have an opportunity to clinch the AFC North with a win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 17. Sportsbooks opened the Ravens as 5.5-point home favorites with a total of 41.

    SHARK BITES
    • The Browns are 3-18 SU in their last 21 games vs the Ravens.
    • The total has gone UNDER in the Browns’ last four games vs the Ravens (avg. combined score: 31.75).
    • The Browns are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games on the road vs teams with winning records.

    Browns vs Ravens Game Center

    Ravens looking to lock up the division

    Thanks to the slumping Pittsburgh Steelers dropping four of their past five, the Ravens control their own destiny and can win the division by topping the Browns. It won’t be easy, however, as the Browns have also won five of six entering this one.

    Baltimore has straight-up owned this series over the years, as the Ravens are 16-3 SU in their last 19 meetings with the Browns. The Ravens have fared well at home this season, going 5-2 SU in seven home contests. The Browns are 5-2-1 at home but are just 2-5 on the road. The speedy Jackson has done some serious damage along with Gus Edwards on the ground this year, which could be a major problem for the Browns. Cleveland ranks 24th in the NFL by allowing 126.1 rushing yards per game.

    Browns will have plenty of drive to win

    While the Browns have made some major strides this season, they have been beating up on lesser competition. During its six-game hot streak, Cleveland has topped Cincinnati twice and has wins over Denver, Carolina and Atlanta to improve to 7-7-1. The only team with a winning record the Browns have played in that span is Houston – a game in which they fell flat in the form of a 29-13 setback. Cleveland is eliminated from playoff contention, but don’t expect the team to mail it in for the last game of the year.

    When it comes to the total, bettors may want to pay attention to the UNDER in this one. The last four meetings between the Browns and Ravens have all gone UNDER with an average combined score of 31.8 points. The Ravens have also cashed UNDER bets in seven of their previous nine against AFC North opponents at home.

    My pick: take the UNDER

    In past years, a Week 17 matchup between these teams would’ve been perceived as a throw-away game, but that’s simply not the case this time around. While I lean toward the Ravens on the spread, I think the Browns can keep it relatively close.

    That’s why I’m staying away from the spread and banking on the UNDER trend continuing in this series. The number is relatively low but it’s that low for a reason, so don’t let it scare you from betting it.
