NFL Betting Preview: Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns

November 12, 2023

Two AFC North rivals will meet in week 10 of the NFL season when the Cleveland Browns travel to Baltimore, Maryland to face the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon with the game airing on Fox and scheduled to kick off at 1:00 PM ET.

The Cleveland Browns have looked like an improved team this season despite Deshaun Watson missing an extended period of the season and not looking like the Deshaun Watson of old as he enters this game having completed 85 of 137 attempts for 902 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions for a quarterback rating of 86.7. However, the Browns enter this game with a record of 5-3 which puts them in a three-way tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals for 2nd place in the AFC North. A pivotal part of the success the Browns have had this season has been their defense which is allowing the 3rd fewest points per game in the NFL with an average of 17.38 points per game, however, they will have one of their biggest challenges this season when they travel to face the Ravens who have been one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Baltimore has looked like one of the best teams in the AFC this season and is tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the best record in the conference at 7-2. The Ravens have looked like the most complete teams in the NFL as they have a top 10 offense that is averaging 26.56 points per game to go along with the best scoring defense in the league as they are allowing an average of 13.78 points per game. Lamar Jackson has left no doubt as to why the Ravens signed him to a contract extension in the offseason. Lamar Jackson has arguably been the best player in the NFL this year as he enters this game having completed 181 of 253 attempts for 1,954 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions while also adding 440 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 84 attempts. The Baltimore Ravens are also riding a four-game losing streak following a 37-3 win at home against the Seattle Seahawks while also covering the 6-point spread as a home favorite in week 9 of the NFL season.
