Thousands of football fans have circled today on their calendar. Why? Today is the day that the St. Louis Rams take on the Cleveland Browns. And what are the odds for this potential Super Bowl (2021) preview? Let's take a look.
The Browns opened the week as one-point favorites. Since then, they have become two-and-a-half to three-point favorites over the Rams this week. St. Louis beat the spread just once this season, against New Orleans two weeks ago. Cleveland is 2-4-2 against the spread. But just maybe this is the week the Rams do it again. 53 percent of bettors are taking the Rams to cover.
In a sign of just how bad both these teams have played, the over/under on the game is a whopping 36 points. That's even lower than the over/under for Indianapolis versus Jacksonville. Yikes. Little wonder though, the Rams average 12.5 points per game, and the Browns average 14.9 points per game.
