NFL Betting: Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns

Week 9 of the 2008 NFL betting season features a football contest between the Cleveland Browns (3-4 SU, 5-2 ATS) and the Ravens (4-3 SU, 5-2 ATS).

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET.  The Browns have gotten the best of the Ravens recently going 5-1 ATS the last six meetings and they’re 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS the last four times they’ve welcomed their AFC North rivals into the “Dawg Pound”.

Cleveland took on the Jaguars last Sunday down at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, where the NFL betting line closed with the Browns locked in as a seven-point road underdogs with the ‘total’ going off the board at 42.  Cleveland got the first touchdown of the game on WR Dante Stallworth’s touchdown reception late in the first quarter.

The Jags countered with a touchdown in the second, but the Browns responded with 10 straight points to go up 17-7 at the half.  When the dust cleared, Cleveland came up with the upset victory by a 23-17 final score ultimately preventing Jacksonville bettors from covering the pointspread.

Unfortunately for ‘over’ backers, the combined ‘total’ didn’t reach the predicted number.  The Baltimore Ravens went off the betting board as nine-point home favorites over the Oakland Raiders at home last Sunday, with the game ‘total’ predicted to be 34.5 points.

The mighty Ravens defense recorded a safety in the first quarter before their offense exploded for 17 points in the second quarter, which included a 70 yard QB Joe Flacco touchdown pass to WR Demetrius Williams.

The Ravens simply overpowered the Raiders in this NFL betting showdown; Oakland was held to just 47 rushing yards on the day and converted just two of 13 third down attempts.

Baltimore won the game by a 29-10 final score to cover the football betting odds, and the combined 39 points was enough for NFL bettors backing the ‘over’ to take a pleasure filled trip back to the betting window.  Cleveland now sits as a 1.5-point home favorite over the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday with the ‘total’ predicted to be 36.5.
