BetDSI has the Carolina Panthers favored by 2 points over the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers enter this game with a record of 6-6 and have lost four games in a row including last week’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 17-24.

The Cleveland Browns enter this game with a record of 4-7-1 and are coming off a loss against the Houston Texans by a score of 13-29.

Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Cleveland Browns.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns are 4-7-1 overall and 7-5 ATS.  The Cleveland Browns will not make the playoffs this season, but for a team that only won one game the previous two seasons they have made dramatic improvements this season and should continue to improve in the years to come with a young team. Cleveland is 7-5 ATS overall, 4-2 ATS after a loss, 4-2 ATS at home and 5-4 ATS as an underdog.

Baker Mayfield leads the team in passing with 2,639 yards for 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Nick Chubb leads the team in rushing with 594 yards and 7 touchdowns. Jarvis Landry leads the team in receiving with 66 receptions for 733 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Cleveland is averaging 22.17 points per game which ranks 20th in the NFL. They are averaging 120.58 rushing yards per game which ranks 14th in the NFL. They are averaging 239.75 passing yards per game which ranks 16th in the NFL.

Carolina Panthers

The Panthers are 6-6 overall and 7-5 ATS.  The Carolina Panthers started the season off at 6-2 and looked like they may be one of the contenders for the NFC title, but have now lost four games in a row to fall to 6-6 on the season and would be out of the playoffs if the season ended today. Carolina is 7-5 ATS overall, 2-3 ATS after a loss, 1-5 ATS on the road and 3-5 ATS as a favorite.

Cam Newton leads the team in passing with 2,999 yards for 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Christian McCaffrey leads the team in rushing with 863 yards and 5 touchdowns. He also leads the team in passing with 80 receptions for 663 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Carolina is averaging 25.33 points per game which ranks 10th in the NFL. They are averaging 140.83 rushing yards per game which ranks 2nd in the NFL. They are averaging 236 passing yards per game which ranks 20th in the NFL.

The Panthers are allowing 25.5 points per game which ranks 21st in the NFL. They are allowing 96.25 rushing yards per game which ranks 6th in the NFL. They are allowing 256.75 passing yards per game which ranks 22nd in the NFL.

Browns get the win at home

Carolina has been in a slump these last four games and now they face a team that has made improvements this season. The Panthers have struggled both on the road and after a loss ATS going 1-5 ATS on the road and 2-3 ATS after a loss while the Browns are 4-2 ATS at home and 4-2 ATS after a loss. I look for both of those trends to continue in this game and for the Browns to come away with the cover. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
