Arizona at Cleveland

4 units on Arizona +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: LOSS
Let’s see. I’m 3-6. I just lost my starting running back for four weeks due to a substance abuse suspension. I think I’ll cut my leading receiver for this year and the four previous seasons. Hmmm. Well at least the QB position is stable on this team. Oh wait – is it Holcomb? Is it Couch? Heck, I dunno. These two teams statistically are pretty close although Arizona is actually better. And, they’ve been playing much better lately. They’ve won two of their last three including upset victories over San Francisco and Cincinnati. They continue to get less respect than they deserve due to their consistent horrible play the past few years. This spread should be closer to a field goal so we are getting value. Visiting dogs versus poor teams in a slump coming home after some road games cover two thirds of the time. It wouldn’t shock me in the least bit to see Zona walk away with the win.
