October 22, 2023
The Cleveland Browns will travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to face the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday afternoon in week 7 of the NFL season with the game airing on CBS at 1:00 PM ET.
Cleveland enters this game with a record of 3-2 following a 19-17 win at home against the San Francisco 49ers while covering the 9.5-point spread as a road underdog by winning the game outright in week 6 of the NFL season. The Browns scored 19 points while compiling a total of 334 yards offensively which included 192 passing yards and 160 rushing yards while allowing 17 points and 215 total yards defensively which included 125 passing yards and 108 rushing yards. P.J. Walker led the team in passing, completing 18 of 34 attempts for 192 yards and two interceptions while rushing for a touchdown. Jerome Ford led the team in rushing with 17 carries for 84 yards while adding two receptions for seven yards. Amari Cooper led the team in receiving, catching four of eight targets for 108 yards.
The Indianapolis Colts enter this game with a record of 3-3 following a 20-37 loss on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars while failing to cover the 4-point spread as a home favorite in week 6 of the NFL season. The Colts scored 20 points while compiling a total of 354 yards offensively which included 329 passing yards and 44 rushing yards while allowing 37 points and 233 total yards defensively which included 181 passing yards and 85 rushing yards. Gardner Minshew led the team in passing, completing 33 of 55 attempts for 329 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Zach Moss led the team in rushing with seven carries for 21 yards and a touchdown while adding six receptions for 38 yards. Michael Pittman led the team in receiving, catching nine of 14 targets for 109 yards.
BookMaker has the Cleveland Browns listed as 2-point favorites on the road against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon in week 7 of the NFL season. Indianapolis has won eight of the last ten and two of the last three games while winning by an average margin of 1.1 points per game over the last ten while the Browns have outscored the Colts by an average of 28 to 26.33 points per game over the last three meetings. The Browns are 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. Cleveland is 3-2 ATS overall, 0-1 ATS on the road, and 1-1 ATS as a favorite this season while the Indianapolis Colts are 3-3 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS at home, and 3-3 ATS as an underdog on the year.
Cleveland enters this game with a slightly better record at 3-2 and is coming off an impressive win against the San Francisco 49ers who were undefeated when they faced the Browns. However, Indianapolis has been the dominant team in the series having won eight of the last ten and two of the last three games, and the games in the series have been decided by an average of less than 2 points per game over the last ten and the last three meetings on average. I look for that trend to continue which is why I am fading the public and taking the Indianapolis Colts +2 when they host the Cleveland Browns.
Spooky Express Pick: Indianapolis Colts +2
