CLEVELAND is 15-6 ATS (+8.4 Units) in all lined games over the last 2 seasons.
CLEVELAND is 13-4 ATS (+8.6 Units) when playing with 6 or less days rest over the last 2 seasons.
CLEVELAND is 13-3 ATS (+9.7 Units) in games played on a grass field over the last 2 seasons.
CLEVELAND is 10-2 ATS (+7.8 Units) when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 3 seasons.
WASHINGTON is 44-68 ATS (-30.8 Units) as a favorite since 1992.
WASHINGTON is 1-9 ATS (-8.9 Units) when playing against a team with a losing record over the last 3 seasons.
These two teams are coming off of very different results. The Redskins suffered their second loss of the season when they were upset by the previously winless Rams at home, while the Browns are coming off an impressive beat down of the Super Bowl Champion Giants on Monday Night Football. Cleveland has won two in a row, but they’re going to run smack dab into a pissed off Washington team that wants to prove that last week was a fluke. Quarterback Jason Campbell has yet to throw an interception this year and could have his way against a suspect Browns’ secondary. If Cleveland QB Derek Anderson can play as well as he did last week and the Browns’ offensive line can open up holes for Jamal Lewis again, they should hang with the Skins for four quarters. But it’s doubtful they walk away with a win. We predict the Redskins over the Browns 27-20.
