Week 7 of the NFL season continues Sunday afternoon as the Baltimore Ravens host the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North Division matchup at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. Coverage begins at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
CLEVELAND BROWNS vs. BALTIMORE RAVENS BETTING PREDICTION
The Ravens host the Browns in an AFC North Division matchup in Charm City. Cleveland heads into the game on a three-game losing skid, but more importantly, it is coming off its worse loss of the season. The Browns fell 38-15 to the New England Patriots at FirstEnergy Stadium last weekend, and the boo birds were out in full force in Cleveland.
The Browns entered Week 6 at just 2-3 SU, but at least they were competitive, dropping those three games by a combined six points. But the bottom fell out at home, and against Patriots rookie QB Bailey Zappe and RB Rhamondre Stevenson of all people. If the Browns do anything consistently, it is run the football, ranking first in the NFL with 172.0 rushing yards per game, and they'll likely try to establish the run early against a Ravens defense which has simply been so-so.
The Ravens have alternated wins and losses in each of the six games to date, losing last week by a 24-20 score at N.Y. Giants, including another fourth-quarter collapse. In fact, Baltimore has blown a fourth-quarter lead in all three of its losses.
Cleveland won the most recent meeting in Northeast Ohio, 24-22, although the Ravens covered. The Ravens have covered five straight meetings in this series, with the favorite cashing in four of the past five meetings. For totals, the UNDER has hit in eight of the past 11 meetings in Baltimore, too.
Score Prediction: Ravens 34, Browns 18
Best Bet: Ravens -6.5 (-108)
Best Bet: OVER 45,5 (-110)

CLEVELAND BROWNS BETTING ANALYSIS
The 38 points the Browns allowed last week against the Patriots was a season high, and Cleveland has now allowed 30 or more points in back-to-back games, while yielding at least 23 points in five of six outings so far. The OVER is 5-1 in six games overall for Cleveland, although the UNDER is 4-1 in the previous five games on the road.
Cleveland has failed to cover its past three, and it is 1-4 ATS in five games overall. Of course, the only win and cover during the past five games was a Thursday night battle inside the AFC North, topping the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-17 in Week 3 on TNF.
All of the trends for the Browns are awful against the number. They're 1-4 ATS in the past five games overall, while going 12-30-1 ATS in the past 43 games inside the division. Cleveland is also 8-22 ATS in the past 30 games in the month of October.
BALTIMORE RAVENS BETTING ANALYSIS
The Ravens have been inconsistently consistent, winning in odd-numbered weeks, and losing in even-numbered weeks, while going 2-3-1 ATS overall. The Ravens have failed to cover the past two, and the last time they failed to cover three in a row was Oct. 24-Nov. 11, 2021 from Week 7-10.
Baltimore has struggled putting points on the board lately, so the first inclination might be to go UNDER. Against Cleveland, however, Baltimore has posted 22, 16, 47, 38, 31, 25 and 26 in the past seven meetings. The UNDER is 4-1 in Baltimore's past five at home, and 6-2 in the past eight overall, while going 8-3 in the past 11 home meetings against the Browns in Baltimore. But if it is going to break out of its funk, it will be here against a vulnerable Cleveland team which has really struggled over the past two games, especially defensively.
The Ravens are 1-3-1 ATS in the past five games overall, while going 1-4 ATS in the past five games inside the division, while going 0-3-1 ATS in the past four at home, and 1-5 ATS in the past six against teams with a losing record. Despite all of that, go against the trends and play against the Browns.
The difference here is quarterback play, as QB Lamar Jackson will outclass the mistake-prone QB Jacoby Brissett. Jackson and TE Mark Andrews have been on another plane lately, and if they get off to a quick start, that will get the Browns to get away from their strength, the run game, early.
