NFL Picks: Week 7 Browns vs Colts
This Sunday, NFL fans have their eyes set on the match between the Cleveland Browns and the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. While the Browns celebrated a narrow victory over the 49ers last week, the Colts are trying to rebound from a sting against the Jaguars.
BUSR NFL Lines
Spread: Browns -2 (-110), Colts +2 (-110)
Moneyline: Browns -129, Colts +106
Total: O 39 (-110), U 39 (-110)
After rejuvenating during their bye week, the Browns faced the 49ers. They started with a deficit but showed resilience to seal a 19-17 win. Phillip Walker’s passing prowess and Jerome Ford’s commanding ground game were the talk of the town. Adding to that, Amari Cooper’s receiving skills further bolstered their performance. Historically, the Browns have a commendable record against AFC South teams. Notably, their defense has been rock solid, ranking first in the NFL for yards and passing yards allowed per game.
However, Week 6 brought them face-to-face again with the Jaguars, and the tables turned. Despite Gardner Minshew’s aerial assault and Michael Pittman’s receiving efforts, the team couldn’t keep up, conceding a 37-20 defeat. Historically, the Colts have an edge when playing as underdogs after a Division loss. However, their performance against AFC North teams at home has been less than stellar. Without Anthony Richardson for the rest of the year, things might be harsh for the Colts.
Tipping the scales slightly in favor of the Browns. Their recent game against the 49ers, although messy, showcased a defense that stood tall. If they maintain that form, they’re poised for more positive results.
On the contrary, the Colts, despite a bright future, have struggled to maintain consistency, especially in high-scoring scenarios. Richardson is all but confirmed to miss the rest of the season so that takes a lot of excitement out of this team.
My money will be on the Browns covering the -2 spread on BUSR NFL Odds, consider the O 39 as this could be a high-scoring affair.
