Saints vs Browns Highlights

In a series that the Browns have dominated historically, there have been a few glimmers of hope for this week’s visitors in recent years. They have managed to walk away victorious in 5 of the last 10 meetings. The early meetings between these teams saw the Browns go 8 games undefeated, a context that makes the 13-5 series lead look very flattering for the Browns.

The Saints were far better on the road in 2021 than they were on their own turf, with 6 of their 9 wins coming away from home. The Browns had the opposite story, with only 2 wins away from Ohio.

If you’re thinking of having a bet on NFL games, then wager on this to be a battle that is won on defense. Both teams had top 10 defenses in yards given up per game in the 2021 regular season, as well as offenses that have struggled despite some of the big names on their rosters.

After taking everything into consideration, our advice is to bet on the Saints to cover the spread in this one. Still, we don’t expect this to be easy for either team, particularly as injuries to key personnel start to impact scores and seasons.
