Las Vegas Raiders @ Cleveland Browns (Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET)

Raiders @ Browns BEST BET: Raiders +6.5 (-115)

Wager: 1 Unit

Neither of these teams have played particularly well lately, as the Raiders have fallen to 6-7 while the Browns are 7-6. Las Vegas was just embarrassed by Kansas City, while Cleveland barely squeaked by Baltimore despite Lamar Jackson exiting early. The Raiders are better offensively while the Browns are stronger defensively.

This appears to be a pretty even matchup on paper, which is why I’m shocked to see Cleveland favored by 6.5 points at home on our NFL gameday odds. The Browns’ offense was shut out during the second half against the Ravens and has been absolutely brutal lately, scoring 17 points or less in six of their last eight games.

This line feels like an overreaction to the Raiders’ ugly loss. Derek Carr is a significantly better quarterback than Baker Mayfield at the moment and should be able to keep this game close, if not win it outright for Las Vegas.

  • Implied Score: Jaguars 22, Texans 19

Texans @ Jaguars BEST BET: Under 41 Total Points (-110)

Wager: 0.5 Units

Both of these offenses are the definition of incompetent, which explains why they’re both 2-11 this year.

The Jaguars were just shut out by the Titans, who aren’t a great defensive team by any measure. They’ve now scored 17 points or less in six straight games, failing to reach double digits three times and averaging just 10.7 points per game over that stretch.

The Texans are just as bad, especially with Davis Mills replacing the injured Tyrod Taylor under center. They’ve already been shut out twice this year and have not eclipsed 22 points in a game since Week 1.

With Jacksonville averaging 13.8 points per game and Houston averaging 13.6 points per game, these are the two lowest-scoring offenses in the NFL. Back the Under in what is likely to be an ugly, low-scoring game between two of the worst teams in the league.

  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 44 (-110), Under 44 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Broncos 22.5, Bengals 21.5

Bengals @ Broncos BEST BET: Bengals +1 (-115)

Wager: 1 Unit

With a one-point spread, you’re basically picking on which team will win the game. The Bengals have been the superior team this year, making them an easy call here.

The Broncos are 7-6 after an easy win over the Lions in Week 14, but their record is still inflated by their 3-0 start against the Giants, Jets, and Jaguars. They’re only 4-6 since then, as they’ve struggled against legitimate teams.

The 7-6 Bengals certainly qualify as such, as they’re just one game behind the Ravens in the AFC North standings. Cincinnati has looked like a possible playoff team all season long and has played well on the road, going 4-2 with an average winning margin of 20 points.

Take the better team with the better quarterback for our NFL bet of the day, as this line will likely shift in Cincy’s favor as the week progresses.
