Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Spin
Marquise Brown caught 4-of-4 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jets. Brown also added a 43-yard DPI penalty that set the Ravens up at the one-yard line. Badly beaten, Jets LB Neville Hewitt simply tackled Brown in the end zone. Brown's touchdown was a beautiful 24-yarder where he got his second foot down with a feathery touch in the back of the end zone. It was a needed night from a wideout who had been 4/-1 over his past two games. Brown's monster efforts have been few and far between, but he will have some WR3 appeal for the fantasy finals against the Browns.
Cleveland Browns Fantasy Spin
Odell Beckham (groin) plans to play in the Browns' final two games. Playing through a painful sports hernia that could require offseason surgery, no one would fault Beckham for throwing in the towel, especially with Cleveland all but certain to miss the postseason (one percent playoff odds). Despite this, Beckham, who is nearing his fifth 1,000-yard receiving season, has every intention to play the final two games, saying he owes it to his teammates to play through the pain. "As long as these boys are out here, I’m going to go out there and give my all," said OBJ in the aftermath of Sunday's loss to Arizona. "I love football way too much to think about sitting out and doing all of these things but I’m here for this team and we’ll see better days." The hobbled 27-year-old has scored just once since Week 3
NFL Betting Trends
The Ravens are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.
The Browns are just 17-37-1 against the spread in their last 55 games as an underdog.
The Browns are a dysfunctional mess that looked like they didn’t want to play last Sunday in Arizona. I don’t trust Cleveland to show up and play hard, even in a divisional matchup against a team it beat earlier this season. The Browns are just 6-22-2 against the spread in their last 30 games versus an opponent with a winning record and are 16-36-1 at the betting window in their last 53 games coming off a loss. The Ravens, meanwhile, are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six games as a favorite.
