Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Ravens 11-point favorites over the Browns in Week 10. The over/under total for this game has been set at 40 points.
Baltimore is 16-6 against the spread in its last 22 games and 9-4 against the number in its last 13 games on the road. Cleveland, meanwhile, is 3-9 against the spread in its last 12 games and 2-6 against the number in its last eight games at home.
The Browns are going back to Brady Quinn at quarterback – not that it matters. Their offense is horrible and their defense can stop anyone because they’re often set up in terrible field position and they’re left on the field too long. Quinn has already proven that he can’t move Cleveland’s offense and he won’t do it against Ray Lewis and the Ravens’ defense.
We like Baltimore to roll in this contest and suggest taking the under as Cleveland should get shutout. The total has gone under in five of the Browns’ last seven games.
