The Cleveland Browns aren’t ready to give up on their playoff quest – and they could be in for a major boost in that regard as they tangle with the visiting Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Browns have won two straight games following a 2-6 start and are double-digit favourites for their Week 12 meeting with a Dolphins team that saw its two-game winning streak come to an unceremonious end in last week’s 37-20 drubbing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

You won’t find much empirical data on the Browns as a double-digit fave; prior to last year’s 26-18 win-and-non-cover against the Cincinnati Bengals last Dec. 30 at -10, Cleveland hadn’t been favoured by 10 or more points since 2007. And the Browns haven’t been a great cover option overall, having gone 1-4-1 in their last six games. Miami, on the other hand, has gone 5-1 ATS in its past six games and 4-1 in its previous five vs. AFC opponents.

 

The total for Sunday’s Dolphins-Browns tete-a-tete is set at 44.5, with 72 percent of Sports Interaction participants leaning toward the Over. Miami has trended in the opposite direction, having gone 9-4 to the Under in its previous 13 games with four straight Under results following a non-cover. Cleveland is also looking like a superior Under play, having gone 7-18-1 O/U in its past 26 home games. Under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between the teams, as well.

Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are facing even more roster turnover as they plod toward the end of what has been a supremely disappointing season. Safeties Reshad Jones and Bobby McCain were both placed on injured reserve this week and will miss the remainder of 2019; it could be the end of Jones’ tenure with the Dolphins, as he’s set to become a free agent at season’s end. Look for the Browns to attack the Dolphins’ weakened secondary with impunity this weekend.

Cleveland Browns

While you can hardly attribute all of the Browns’ success over the past two games to the arrival of Kareem Hunt, his presence certainly hasn’t hurt. Hunt has racked up 132 total yards in his first two games with the Browns, and should continue to provide a potent 1-2 backfield punch alongside Nick Chubb. This might be the week to take the Over on Hunt’s yardage total, given that this game could get out of hand quickly in Cleveland’s favour.
