Eagles vs. Browns Week 11 Prediction
The Eagles remain in first place in the NFC East but they’re losing their grasp on the division and now need a win Sunday in Cleveland to maintain ground over the Giants. Will the Browns hand Philly yet another loss as small home chalk?
451 Philadelphia Eagles (+2.5) at 452 Cleveland Browns (-2.5); o/u 47
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, November 22, 2020
Venue: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, OH
Philadelphia Eagles DFS Notes
Carson Wentz completed 21-of-37 passes for 208 yards in the Eagles' Week 10 loss to the Giants. Wentz had a good on-paper matchup, a healthier offensive line, Dallas Goedert, Jalen Reagor, and Miles Sanders, but busted in fantasy and in real life. The Eagles are painfully boring to watch with Wentz plummeting to career-low levels. Wentz continues to look for big plays that aren't there and misses easy gains with below-average accuracy. Hopefully things gel with more live reps with a healthy offense but that could be wishful thinking. Wentz will be a QB2 against the Browns in Week 11.
Cleveland Browns DFS Notes
Baker Mayfield completed 12-of-20 passes for 132 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Browns' 10-7, Week 10 win over the Texans. For the second time in three weeks, gale-force winds in Cleveland made passing the ball extremely difficult. Mayfield actually did stick a few nice throws, but this was a field position slugfest where the Browns dialed up 41 runs in Nick Chubb's first game since Week 4. With Chubb back and Odell Beckham (ACL) gone, Mayfield will struggle mightily for volume down the stretch. He will be a bottom-basement QB2 for Week 11 against the Eagles.
Eagles vs. Browns Prediction
The home team is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Eagles are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning record and are 3-7 at the window in their last 10 games overall. The Browns, meanwhile, have covered in four of their last five home games when facing a team with a losing road record.
