NFL Odds Monday Night Football – The high-flying Cleveland Browns heads back home to Cleveland to take on the Baltimore Ravens for Monday Night Football. This is the first time since Week 1 both teams faced each other off.
Both teams are separated by 2 games in the loss column as they’re both are battling for one of the three wild card slots in the AFC playoff seedings. On Week 13, the Browns and Ravens took care of their business as they both dispatched the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys, respectively.
The landscape changed ever since that Week 1 matchup with the Browns heading towards an upward trend. The Ravens, on the other hand, are facing the other way around. Baltimore is looking to not only sweep the 2-game series but to get back into the wildcard picture in the AFC playoff bracket.
NFL Odds and Verdict: Ravens Edge Browns
Here’s who I think will win this matchup between Cleveland and Baltimore. I pick the Baltimore Ravens to defeat the Cleveland Browns in this entertaining Monday Night game.
The Baltimore ground game could prove too much for Cleveland to keep pace. Both J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards worked like a well-oiled machine against Dallas and this could be similar feeling the Browns will face. Cleveland will have to rely more on Baker Mayfield to keep the game close.
Predicted Score: BAL 26 – CLE 22

X-Factor: Dobbins Clears for Takeoff
Ravens rookie, J.K. Dobbins has been on a great roll of late. Minus his absence against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dobbins has logged over 70 rushing yards and 1 touchdown in both games he’s played.
Coach John Harbaugh’s decision to insert Dobbins in the lineup is certainly working like a charm. With J.K. Dobbins giving Baltimore a spark, this helps reduce Lamar Jackson’s load in the run game so that Jackson can focus more on his passing.
Dobbins will look to maintain his run of form as he takes on the Browns defense. He will need the Ravens’ offensive linemen to give him more running room to operate so that he can do more scrimmage yards against the Browns’ rush-defense.
