Baltimore is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 division games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 games against the AFC. Cleveland is 8-24-2 ATS in their last 34 games against a team with a winning record and 9-23-1 ATS in their last 33 division games while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. Baltimore is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these two teams and 9-2-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings between these two teams in Cleveland.

I get the case you could make for Baltimore here as the Ravens are starting to get back into a groove with the playoffs around the corner. However, Cleveland’s been quietly playing some of the best football I can ever remember them playing, and out of nowhere this is a 9-win team and one that’s also close to clinching a playoff spot. This is an important game on both sides, but given the recent form of both teams and with Baltimore on a short week, I have to give the edge to the Browns at home in this one.
