Los Angeles Rams at Cleveland Browns
When: Sunday, September 22, 8:20 p.m. ET
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio
Betting Line / Total: Los Angeles -3 / 47.5 Points
The Rams are off to a 2-0 SU and ATS start to this season thanks to their offense in a 30-27 win in Week 1 over the Carolina Panthers and to their defense in a 27-9 home win over the New Orleans Saints. The Rams still have question marks lingering from last year around Todd Gurley’s usage rates and Jared Goff’s sub-par production since last December, but they’ve got so many weapons on both sides of the ball that these potential issues haven’t slowed them down yet.
The Rams are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games against the Browns per the OddsShark NFL Database.
After being on the wrong end of a dominant performance in a 43-13 home loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 1, the Browns were on the right side of one in a 23-3 road win over the New York Jets on Monday night. But without Sam Darnold, the Jets weren’t exactly a major test, especially when they were down to third-string quarterback Luke Falk. Cleveland returns home on Sunday night where the Browns are 4-21-1 SU and 8-17-1 ATS in their last 26 games as a home underdog.
Rams at Browns Betting Total
Sunday night’s total is set at 47.5 points. The UNDER is 15-6 in Cleveland’s last 21 home games.
Each of Cleveland’s next five games against Los Angeles, Baltimore, San Francisco, Seattle, and New England come against teams off to a 2-0 start. Bettors will know soon enough whether the hype around Baker Mayfield and company was warranted or not.
