The Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns meet in week 15 NFL action from FirstEnergy Stadium on Saturday.

The Baltimore Ravens will look to build on their 16-14 road win over the Pittsburgh Steelers from their last outing. Lamar Jackson has thrown for 2,242 yards, 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 62.3% passing while also leading the Ravens on the ground with 764 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns this season. Mark Andrews leads Baltimore with 58 grabs for 671 yards and 5 touchdowns while Demarcus Robinson has 390 receiving yards and Devin Duvernay has 378 receiving yards and 3 TDs as well on the year. On defense, Patrick Queen has a team-high 91 total tackles including 66 solo tackles while Baltimore’s defense as a whole has 39 sacks and 14 interceptions as well this season.

The Cleveland Browns will try to bounce back from a 23-10 loss to Cincinnati last time out. Deshaun Watson has thrown for 407 yards, a touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 59.4% passing while Jacoby Brissett has thrown for 2,608 yards, 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 64.1% passing. Nick Chubb has a team-high 1,153 rushing yards with 12 touchdowns and Kareem Hunt also has 423 rushing yards as well this season. Amari Cooper has a team-high 874 receiving yards coming on 63 catches with 7 touchdowns while David Njoku has 523 receiving yards and Donovan Peoples-Jones has 751 receiving yards as well on the year. On defense, Grant Delpit has a team-high 79 total tackles while Myles Garrett has 12 sacks this season.

Baltimore is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 division games. Cleveland is 5-14 ATS in their last 19 division games and 13-36-2 ATS in their last 51 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 home games.

I get the reasoning for Cleveland being favored at home, but the Browns haven’t been anything special since Deshaun Watson came back into the lineup and I don’t expect that to change here. I also don’t know what to expect from the Ravens at QB with Lamar Jackson’s status continually up in the air as is Tyler Huntley’s. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as I think the defenses rule the day and the offenses slop it around for 60 minutes. Give me the under.
