Browns vs. Rams: Cleveland will finally show it rocks

If you look back at the first two games for the Rams and the Browns, you will find they faced somewhat similar opponents.

Los Angeles beat a below-average Carolina team that evidently has a banged-up quarterback, then beat a Saints team that lost quarterback Drew Brees during the game. Cleveland lost its home opener to a Tennessee team that also appears to be below average, then trounced a Jets team that was down to its third quarterback and was fleeced of its defensive stars.

The point is, I believe these teams are much more evenly matched than one might think. I made this line 2¹/₂ in favor of the visiting Rams. It opened -3 and has moved at quite a few books to 3¹/₂, which is a very substantial move and is due to a large percentage of both the money and the ticket count on the road favorite.

With the “new” Browns now having a few reps under their belt and owing the home crowd a much more efficient performance, I’m expecting a solid showing Sunday night in prime time. It looks like the house is going to need the home ’dog — which is a side I don’t mind cozying up to.

The Play: Browns, but shop for +3¹/₂.
