Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens Predictions

After finishing 2nd in the NFC North with a record of 11-5 last year, Baltimore stormed out to an excellent start to the new season, as the Ravens kicked things off with wins in five of their first six games – which included solid victories over the Chiefs, Chargers, and Broncos.

Since their 5-1 start though, things have been wobbly for the Ravens, considering Baltimore enters Sunday’s matchup riding a bumpy 2-2 four-game stretch – despite being favored by six points or more in three of those contests.

On the other hand, Cleveland also posted an impressive start to this season, as the Browns reigned victorious in three-of-four games to open the year – with their only loss across that stretch coming in a back-and-forth affair against the Chiefs (L, 33-29).

Since their hot start though, the Browns have looked rather pedestrian, highlighted by Cleveland entering Sunday’s contest riding a disheartening 3-4 skid – with the Browns’ only wins across that time frame coming against the Broncos, Bengals, and Lions.

I’ll lay the points with Baltimore here, as the Browns have averaged just 17 PPG on 316.5 YPG across their last six games – which won’t be nearly enough against a Ravens squad that’s averaging 30.4 PPG at home this season.

Cleveland Browns Betting Analysis

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 6-5
  • ATS: 5-6
  • O/U: 6-5
  • ATS - Home: 2-4
  • ATS - Away: 3-2

Despite kicking things off with a pedestrian 3-2 record, Cleveland’s opening stretch was still slightly encouraging, as the Browns posted commanding victories over the Texans, Vikings, and Bears (+37) – and lost a pair of highly competitive matchups to the Chiefs and Chargers (-9) to start the year.

Cleveland has struggled immensely since Week 6 though, considering the Browns enter Sunday’s contest riding a head-scratching 3-4 skid – while averaging just 17 PPG offensively, and allowing 30.7 PPG defensively across their latest six-game window.

Baltimore Ravens Betting Analysis

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 7-3
  • ATS: 4-6
  • O/U: 5-5
  • ATS - Home: 2-3
  • ATS - Away: 2-3

The Ravens have been undeniably miserable on offense the last two weeks, considering Baltimore averaged just 13 PPG across a pair of road matchups against the Dolphins and Lions.

My faith in the Ravens ahead of Week 12 still remains strong though, as Baltimore is averaging 30.4 PPG on 444.8 YPG at home this season – which is where Sunday night’s matchup will take place.

Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens Betting Conclusion

After beating Detroit by a thrilling score of 13-10 last week, the Browns will travel to Baltimore as a 3.5- point underdog against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium – marking the third time Cleveland has been an underdog across the last four games.

I’ll lay the points with Baltimore here, as the Ravens lead the league in home offensive yardage and rank third in home scoring (30.4 PPG, 444.8 YPG) – while the Browns are averaging just 17 PPG and have turned the ball over seven times since Week 6.
