NFL Free Pick: CLE/PHI
The Cleveland Browns might not be playing for much Monday night, but the Philadelphia Eagles are fighting for their playoff lives and will need a victory to stay in the postseason hunt.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Eagles -14 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 38.5 total points.
Key Trend: The Eagles are 4-2 against the spread in their last six games at home, while the Browns are 2-4 against the spread in their last six games.
Key Stat: The Eagles are averaging 26.1 points per game this year, while Cleveland is allowing 21.2 PPG. The Eagles are also passing for close to 250 yards and rushing for 105.2 yards a game, while the Browns are surrendering 148.5 yards a game.
Game Outlook: While oddsmakers are giving Cleveland a lot of points, there’s not much to like about the Browns in this matchup. They’ve had an ugly season, are on the road and playing in one of the toughest environments in football. The Eagles, meanwhile, are fighting for a playoff berth and are coming off an impressive road victory against the Giants. The Browns will also start Ken Dorsey for the second straight game, which doesn’t bode well for Cleveland because they were steamrolled last week by Tennessee. Lay the points in this brutal matchup and watch the Eagles roll with Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook.
