Browns vs. Falcons Betting Picks

Atlanta has surprisingly held their own on offense, but on the defensive side of the ball, they haven’t done much. Expect the Cleveland Browns to take this one and stay undefeated on the road. Browns ML (-120)

With the Over/Under settling in around 49.5 (-110), I like this one to hit the Over. Atlanta is averaging over 26 points a game, while the Browns run the ball better than anyone in the NFL. This should be a high-scoring affair. OVER (-110)

Cleveland Browns Schedule has proven tough, and they will jump out in front early, and Nick Chubb will finish the game off in style.

Chubb has over 100 yards in two of three games this year and four touchdowns. Cleveland will cover this one easily. Browns -1.5 (-110)
