BAL­TI­MORE over Cleve­land by 8

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

As we hit on ear­lier on th­ese pages (and in our 2017 Play­book Foot­ball Pre­view Guide mag­a­zine), Cleve­land has drafted 7 quar­ter­backs since 2005. Col­lec­tively, they have gone 22-67 SU. But it ap­pears they fi­nally might have found a keeper in DeShone Kizer, al­though he is 0-1. The 2nd round rookie from Notre Dame kept the Browns in last week’s sea­son opener against rugged Pittsburgh, and even man­aged to pull out a back door cover. How­ever, the prob­lem the Browns in­cur to­day is that teams who tossed a blank in a divi­sion game (Bal­ti­more) are 13-1 SU and 12-1-1 ATS since 1994 the fol­low­ing game when squar­ing off against a fel­low divi­sion foe com­ing off a loss, in­clud­ing as a fa­vorite. That aside, the Ravens find them­selves in a non-de­sirous role given the fact that teams who win a divi­sion road game as an un­der­dog are just 8-13-1 ATS as fa­vorites the fol­low­ing game when fac­ing a fel­low divi­sion foe off a divi­sion loss. In ad­di­tion, the Black Birds are in their last eight tries
