Browns vs. Chiefs Free Pick
No team in the NFL is hotter right now than the Chiefs, who will be double-digit favorites versus the Browns today at 1:00PM ET.
Kansas City has won eight straight games to get within one game of Denver for first place in the AFC West. The Chiefs also now have the best point differential (+108) of any team in the AFC outside of the Patriots (+166) and Bengals (+135). With an opportunity to win their ninth consecutive game, Andy Reid and Co. are 11.5-point home favorites over the Browns according to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag.
The Chiefs are red-hot but there's actually plenty of value in the Browns. Since 2003, NFL teams have gone 42-21 against the spread (66.7%) when they are double-digit underdogs in back-to-back games. After failing to cover as a 14.5-point road dog last Sunday in Seattle, that trend applies to the Browns this week.
Not only are the Chiefs fighting for the division, they're also battling the Steelers and Jets for one of the two wild card spots. With all the pressure on Kansas City and none on Cleveland (which will once again miss the playoffs this year), take the points with a Browns team with nothing to lose.
