NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Browns step into this Sunday’s matchup sporting a 4-6-1 record that ranks them dead last in the AFC North. Considering they failed to win a single game this season, 2018 has been a solid turnaround for the organization. Although their head coach got fired, Cleveland has won their last 2 games defiantly. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that this organization is rebuilding successfully – finally. As for this Sunday’s matchup, the odds aren’t giving Cleveland much of a shot against the red hot Texans. Looking over the stats, it’s clear that Cleveland will be at a disadvantage this weekend. Right now Cleveland is scoring 23.0 per game, which isn’t too far from the 24.8 figure that Houston delivers. However, Cleveland’s defense is more susceptible than the Texans since the Browns give up 25.7 while the Texans only give up 20.2.
Players to Watch: Baker Mayfield (2,242 passing yards, 17 TD, 7 INT), Nick Chubb (663 rushing yards, 6 TD, 0 F), and Jarvis Landry (630 receiving yards, 2 TD, 60 REC).
The Texans enter this weekend’s matchup sporting an 8-3 record. There’s no question that Houston is one of the hottest teams in the league right now with their 8-game winning streak. Considering that the season only has 16-games, winning 8 of them consecutively is a pretty big deal. Especially since Houston kicked the season off with three straight losses. The only question is how high is the ceiling for this team. Sure they can kick butt during the regular season, but how will they measure up against the Chiefs or Patriots come January?
Players to Watch: Deshaun Watson (2,807 passing yards, 20 TD, 9 INT), Lamar Miller (773 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and DeAndre Hopkins (1,024 receiving yards, 8 TD, 73 REC).
