Betting Predictions Colts Vs Browns NFL Week 5 Odds
Cleveland has been one of the best offensive teams in the league, averaging 31 points per game. They are throwing for 182.5 yards and rushing for 204.5 yards per game.
Baker Mayfield has thrown for 729 yards, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions. Chubb has 335 rushing yards and four touchdowns, while Kareem Hunt is right behind him with 275 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
The browns haven’t played well defensively, giving up 31.5 points per game. They gave up 38 points in their last game and won’t win too many games if they do not play better.
Odds and Prediction:
The Colts are favored to win this game by 1.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 47.5.
The Colts have played well defensively in their last three games, but the teams they have defeated have only three combined wins. Even though the Browns will be without Chubb, they still have a dangerous ground game with Hunt as their feature back. Expect the Browns to win a close one at home so take the +1.5 and the over in this game.
