NFL Week 14 Best Bets: Browns Favoured in Divisional Clash with Baltimore

The Browns return to action after enjoying a much-needed bye in Week 13, while the Ravens look to extend their divisional lead after dropping a narrow 19-17 decision in Pittsburgh last weekend.

Ravens vs Browns Betting Matchup

Sunday afternoon’s matchup at First Energy Stadium marks the second and final regular-season meeting between these long-time rivals this year. The Ravens eked out a narrow 16-10 win as 3-point home favourites when these teams clashed two weeks ago. That marked Baltimore’s fourth straight SU and ATS win over the Browns. The Ravens have also dominated in recent trips to Cleveland, winning six of seven since 2014, and going 6-1 ATS during that stretch while averaging 27.9 points per game. Conversely, the browns have been limited to 20 or fewer points in four of five home dates with Baltimore, fueling a 3-1 run for the UNDER in totals betting.

Ravens News & Notes

Perched among the favourites on the Super Bowl 56 odds entering the season, the Ravens hit the road after seeing a two-game SU win streak halted by last weekend’s loss to the Steelers. Low scoring has been commonplace of late when the Ravens hit the gridiron. Hobbled by injuries, Baltimore has averaged a meagre 15.3 points per game during their current 2-2 SU run, and have seen the total finish UNDER in each of those contests.

The injury bug continued to bite this week, with Marlon Humphrey seeing his season come to an end due to a shoulder injury. The 25-year-old has played a big role in Baltimore’s secondary, racking up 58 total tackles and one interception this season. The Ravens’ secondary had already been hobbled by the loss of Anthony Averett to a knee injury. However, Averett was a limited participant in Thursday practise and is listed as questionable to return on Sunday.

Browns News & Notes

Consistency has also been a massive problem for the Browns since the team opened their 2021 campaign on a respectable 3-1 SU run. Cleveland returns from a bye last weekend with just three outright wins in their past eight contests, but have seen two of those victories come on home turf. However, the Browns have largely faced lightweight competition at home this season, with their four home wins to date coming against Houston, Chicago, Denver, and Detroit. And while the Browns offence has managed to top 40 points on two occasions this season, they have otherwise struggled to generate offence, scoring 17 or fewer points in six of their past seven overall contests.

The Browns have also been dealing with plenty of injury woes of their own. Most notable among them is quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has been battered and bruised all season while dealing with foot and shoulder injuries, but was a full participant at Thursday practice. Receiver Jarvis Landry has been limited to just eight appearances this season due to injury. Landry limited at Thursday practice, but is a good bet to see action on Sunday.
