Washington at Cleveland
Sunday 09/27 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Washington +7 (+100) (risk 1 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Cleveland got a win over the Bengals 35-30 after being embarrassed by the Ravens in Week 1, but the Browns still haven't proven they can cover a decent number as a favorite. The Browns are 0-5 ATS their last five games overall dating to last season and Baker Mayfield hasn't shown that he can put two good performances together. Washington opened the season with a come-from-behind 27-17 victory over the Eagles before falling to Arizona 30-15 last week. However, quarterback Dwayne Haskins continued to show that he can make it in this league finishing 19 of 33 for 223 yards and a touchdown. Washington's defense leads the NFL with 11 sacks and a large part of that is the presence of rookie Chase Young, the No. 2 pick in the draft, who has 2.5 sacks this season. Mayfield infamously planted an Oklahoma flag at midfield at Ohio Stadium and caught the wrath of Nick Bosa last season and Young will have the same thing on his mind in this matchup. Cleveland is 12-25-1 ATS its last 38 home games and 24-50-2 ATS its last 76 games overall. The Browns are 2-6 ATS their last eight after scoring at least 30 points their previous game and they haven't yet earned the right to be laying this many points. Take Washington.
