Pro Football Betting: BALTIMORE RAVENS at CLEVELAND BROWNS (9/18)

PRO FOOTBALL — September 18

BALTIMORE at CLEVELAND
(Line: Ravens -4.5, Total 42) – Baltimore had a stellar day on the defensive end last week, slowing down Buffalo to the tune of 160 yards of total offense. And they are excited about the new receivers, though we don’t want to go too overboard about Mike Wallace, who caught a TD last week but has crapped out at Miami and Minnesota prior to this. The Browns looked completely impotent last week against the Eagles, and on top of that they lost Robert Griffin III to an injury. No, there are not a heck of a lot of weapons around, but Josh McCown is the starting QB again, and he at least brings some continuity to the table. He also threw for 457 yards against the Ravens last year, though admittedly that was a much more banged-up team. Hue Jackson not likely to be standing still for lackluster efforts for very long.

PLAY BY JAY: CLEVELAND +4.5 *
