It's a battle of two struggling teams, but you know it's going to be a good one. With the Browns and the Ravens both trying to claw their way out of the bottom of the AFC North, this game means everything. Not only is it a heated divisonal rivalry, but also a contest with playoff hopes on the line. Considering that on average, only one 1-3 team makes the playoffs each year, a 1-4 start would be dreadful.
So with a lot balancing on the result of this game, the oddsmakers in Vegas have got Baltimore coming out on top at home. Here are the lines.
- The Crowd's Line: Ravens 25.4 - Browns 19.5
- Vegas: Ravens 24.7 - Browns 18.2
