Why the Cleveland Browns are a good bet +10 ½?

Before their Week 7 bye, the Cleveland Browns were absolutely awful in back-to-back losses to the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. The Browns aren’t as bad as what they’ve shown, though. The had a big 14-6 first quarter lead against Seattle before allowing the Seahawks to get back into the game and then overtake them.

Browns vs Patriots Final NFL Betting Analysis

Although the Patriots should be favored by double-digits in this matchup, this game won’t be nearly as easy for New England as the 33-0 victory over the New York Jets this past Monday night was.

The Patriots face a much tougher team. The reason to be bullish on Cleveland is two-fold. First, the offense is the best the Pats defense has faced this season. New England’s record consists of victories over Pittsburgh, the Giants, Buffalo, Washington, Miami, and the Jets twice. That’s not exactly a whose who of offensive football powers.

Second, there’s a big chance the Browns get both their starting cornerbacks, Greedy Williams and Denzel Ward back from injury. If Williams and Ward start, they can most definitely help the Browns beleaguered D.

It’s too much to ask the Browns to upset the Patriots on Sunday. It isn’t too much to ask for the Browns to cover the spread. Take the points.
