NFL betting handicappers have also noticed that the Cleveland Browns are regressing back into their losing form after recently springing two big NFL gambling upsets.
FOX will telecast the interconference matchup of the Carolina Panthers at the Cleveland Browns with a kickoff set for 1:05 PM ET. Be sure and open your account for the side and total odds on this game and the rest of the NFL card.
The Browns will be looking to get back on track while the Panthers are hoping for a rare win and respite from their misery.
The Cleveland Browns have a record of 3-7 straight up and 4-6 with the NFL gambling odds as 7 of their games have gone over the total. Cleveland is coming off a 24-20 loss at Jacksonville that followed three impressive performances before that as they won at New Orleans, dominated New England, and lost to the Jets in overtime.
As was the case last year the Browns are playing hard for coach Eric Mangini and have proven to be a team that can beat anyone on a given Sunday.
Rookie Colt McCoy began the season as 3rd string quarterback but injuries but him in to the starting role and he has been better than expected with an 85.3 QB rating while showing decent poise for a first year starter.
Peyton Hillis has been the top performer on offense with 774 yards and 8 TD’s. The Cleveland defense has also shown improvement as it ranks 10th for points allowed.
The Carolina Panthers have a betting on NFL football record of 1-9 straight up and 2-8 against the spread with 6 of their games going under the total. Carolina is suffering from a 4 game losing streak and is coming off a 37-13 blowout loss at home against Baltimore.
The Panthers offense ranks dead last in the NFL overall and for scoring and the defense hasn’t been much better. Brian St. Pierre ended up at quarterback as Jimmy Clausen suffered a concussion and is questionable while original starter Matt Moore is on injured reserve.
