Indianapolis at Cleveland

Sunday 12/15 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cleveland +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)  RESULT: LOSS

It's December all right. A must-win game for both teams but make no mistake about it - this is the biggest game yet for the "new" Cleveland franchise. They are on an emotional high after last week's Hail-Mary win and they smell the rare scent of the playoffs.


Cleveland has lost a few games this year that could have gone the other way and they are now on a roll winning 3 of their last four and 5 of their last 7. RB William Green is improving weekly and the Browns have just been finding ways to win.


Home underdogs in December cover the spread 60% of the time and my power ratings favor Cleveland in a strong way. Take the Browns to win outright.
