Browns vs Rams Predictions
Score Pick: Rams 24, Browns 12
It should be a low-scoring affair when these teams meet at SoFi Stadium. But the contest could be fairly significant, with both squads in the mix for a playoff spot in their respective conferences.
Sean McVay and the Rams put forth their highest-scoring output of the season last week against a poor Cardinals defense, with Matthew Stafford throwing four touchdowns. They should not have nearly as easy of a time against one of the strongest defensive units in the league this weekend.
Cleveland has allowed the fewest yards and touchdowns this season and could be getting back Pro Bowl corner Denzel Ward, who sat out last week with a shoulder injury.
Ward is one of several Browns defenders listed as questionable. Defensive Player of the Year favorite Myles Garrett is also questionable for Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury.
Whether the Browns’ defensive studs can give it a go or not, Los Angeles should win this one fairly comfortably.
The Rams’ offense looked far more dangerous with running back Kyren Williams back in the lineup after missing the last four games. Williams amassed over 200 scrimmage yards last week in his first game back.
Cleveland rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson was forced to leave Sunday’s loss early with a concussion, and he remains questionable while in concussion protocol.
With DTR’s status still in the air, Kevin Stefanski could play recently signed quarterback Joe Flacco if PJ Walker is unfavored.
The Browns’ offense has severely struggled since Deshaun Watson was ruled out for the season, scoring just 25 points combined in its last two games.
Los Angeles’ offense should be able to outscore its depleted opponents and win this one convincingly.
Browns vs Rams Best Bets & Props
Under 40 (-110)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 units
When an elite defense comes up against an inconsistent offense, betting the Under is usually a solid option, and it is my NFL bet of the day.
It is hard to imagine the Rams having nearly as much offensive success as they had last week against the Browns’ star-studded defense. Stafford’s 13-9 touchdown-to-interception ratio is telling of the season the 35-year-old is having.
Cleveland, which has 16 takeaways on the season, should certainly make things uncomfortable and force some mistakes by the Rams’ offense.
Los Angeles’ defense has been average to above-average in many statistics this season. With the Browns likely picking their fourth-string quarterback, one can expect the Rams to be specifically concentrated on stopping the run game.
If McVay’s squad can limit Cleveland’s ground attack, one would have to believe the Under has a much better chance of hitting.
Rams -3.5 (-108)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit
Having the Rams as 3.5-point favorites after last week’s 23-point victory seems almost absurd. But the one big question is what we can expect to see from Flacco.
It will not be the Flacco who led the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl victory back in 2013, and it remains to be seen whether the 38-year-old quarterback can still serve as a quality backup.
We last saw Flacco in 2022 as a member of the New York Jets, for whom he finished with 1,051 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions in five games played.
Even if Flacco can perform above expectations, the Rams still seem to have found their groove on the offensive side of the ball judging by their last game. McVay and the Rams will easily outscore the Browns in this one, blowing the -3.5 out of the water.
Rams Over 20.5 (-130)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit
Having the Rams at -130 to score Over 20.5 is great value for a team coming off of its season-high scoring output.
Another key factor is the contrast between the Browns’ defense on the road versus at home. Cleveland is allowing just 10.2 points per game at home, but 29.6 on the road – and the disparity doesn’t end there.
The Browns are also allowing 158.9 more yards per game on the road compared to Cleveland Browns Stadium this season.
While Los Angeles won’t score much more than 20 points, it can still surpass that mark.
Browns vs Rams Same-Game Parlay
Browns vs Rams SGP (+370)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units
- Rams (-180)
- Under 40 (-110)
- Rams Over 19.5 (-180)
- Browns Under 19.5 (-135)
I have cooked up a four-leg same-game parlay that combines what was discussed in our best bets and predictions.
If we accurately predicted how this game is going to play out, then this should cash at a great price.
At +370, there is a ton of value to be had with highly likely outcomes. With the Browns’ recent offensive struggles, and the Rams seemingly finding life offensively, the value we are getting on the Over and Under 19.5 gives me a ton of confidence.
