The Browns are longshots to make the postseason but they have an opportunity to eliminate the Denver Broncos from the playoffs with a win at Mile High on Saturday.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Put away the brown paper bags Cleveland fans. They’re no longer needed.

The Cleveland Browns are 3-1 straight up in their last four games. Last week’s 26-20 win over the Carolina Panthers as 1-point home underdogs improved the Browns record to 5-7-1 SU and 8-5 against the spread for the season.

Sports Interaction opened this game with the Broncos as 3.5-point home favourites but the line has dropped to an even 3 points. Home-field advantage is generally considered to be worth 3 points with NFL point spread betting. That means the betting public sees these two teams as evenly matched on a neutral field.

You’ve come a long way, Browns backers.

Denver is coming off a 20-14 road loss to the San Francisco 49ers as a 3-point favourite. Despite the setback, the Broncos are still 6-2 ATS over their last eight games. Denver stands at 6-7 SU and 6-6-1 against the number on the campaign.

Total bettors know all about the Broncos’ tendency to play in low-scoring games. The Under is 9-3 in Denver’s 12 regular season games.

About 56 percent of Sports Interaction customers like the Browns to cover as 3-point underdogs while it’s an even 50/50 split on whether or not the game will go Over or Under the 45.5-point total.

Cleveland Browns

Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield has been cooking on the field since former head coach Hue Jackson was canned earlier this season. Mayfield is completing 73.2 percent of his passes for 1406 yards and 11 touchdowns in five starts since the coaching change.

But he’s not the only Cleveland first-year player shining. Running back Nick Chubb has ran for a TD in five straight games and he’s picked up another two receiving scores along the way.

Denver Broncos

The Broncos are just one game out of the playoff picture in the AFC. That’s the good news. The bad news? There are four teams ahead of them with 7-6 records. Denver will likely need to win out and hope the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans stumble over the final three weeks of the season.
