Minnesota is 0-2 on the season, 1-1 against the spread and playing in its home opener. Cleveland is 0-2 overall, 0-1 on the road and 0-2 against the spread. Minnesota has won its last two meetings with the Browns.

Trends show that the Browns are 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 road games while Minnesota is 5-1-1 ATS in its last 7 home games and 5-1-2 ATS in its last 8 Week-3 games.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Minnesota is favored at home in this game, as the Vikings have odds of -6 points against the Browns. The over/under total for the game has been set at 40.5 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game had the Vikings favored by 4 points. The spread reached a peak of 7 points before falling back to Minnesota -6. The over/under total opened at 41 points and moved to 41.5 before falling back to 40.5.

The Vikings are coming off a 31-30 loss at Chicago last week. Minnesota was able to have a chance to win thanks to a defensive touchdown and special teams touchdown. The offense had just 350 total yards in the loss. Quarterback Christian Ponder was only 16 of 30 passing for 227 yards in the loss. Ponder has 463 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions through two games. Adrian Peterson isn’t off to a bad start, but far from his pace of last season. He has 193 yards on 44 carries with two touchdowns in two games.

Cleveland is coming off a 14-6 loss at Baltimore last week. The Browns are now averaging just 8 points and 275 yards per game on offense. The Browns hope that changes as Brian Hoyer gets the start at quarterback for the injured Brandon Weeden, who had thrown for only 516 yards on 47 of 86 passing through two games. Cleveland made some big news on Wednesday, trading running back Trent Richardson to the Colts for a first-round draft pick. The Cleveland defense has played well, holding opponents to 18.5 points and 285.5 yards per game. Desmond Bryant is leading the defense with 2.5 sacks.
