NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Browns are riding high after getting their revenge against former head coach Hue Jackson last weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals. The win was Cleveland’s first road victory in three years and pushed its ATS record to 7-4 on the campaign.

That’s quite a change from years past. Cleveland went a combined 7-24-1 against the number in its two previous seasons. The Over improved to 3-1 and 6-5 on the year for the Browns after last week’s 35-20 win over the Bengals.

Houston is hottest team in the NFL and owners an eight-game winning streak after it doubled up Tennessee 34-17 on Monday night. The Texans opened up the year 0-3 and still stand at just 5-6 against the spread, but they’ve covered the number in four of their last five games.

About 76 percent of Sports Interaction customers are backing the Texans as 6.5-point home faves while 57 percent expect the game to go Over the 48-point total.

Houston, at 8-3, seems to be a shoe-in to win the AFC South and it has a shot to make some noise in the playoffs. The Texans are +1800 to win the Super Bowl and only seven teams have shorter odds to lift the Lombardi Trophy.

Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield is making noise as a possible late bloomer to win the NFL Rookie of the Year award. The first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft began the year holding the clipboard while the Browns handed the starting gig to Tyrod Taylor.

Mayfield took the reins in Week 3 and he’s started to show real signs as a quality quarterback over the last few weeks. He’s tossed 13 TD passes compared to just two interceptions over the last five games.

Houston Texans

Not to be outdone, Texans QB Deshaun Watson is reminding NFL bettors why Houston backers were so excited about their team a year ago. Watson lit the league on fire with his big plays only to be lost for the year after suffering torn ligaments in his knee.

The former Clemson standout is getting back to the level he displayed during his rookie season. Watson has 10 touchdown passes against just two INTS over the last five games.
