Browns vs Rams Prediction

Cleveland’s pass defense has some momentum after containing Denver’s passing attack in their last game. Even as 4.5 point underdogs at away, I’m backing them to cover against Los Angeles.

On the over/under, I have the best bet being to take the over at 39.5. This looks like a slam dunk bet for me, as my gut tells me the over will hit as well as our model projecting a combined 40 points.
