Because of the quarterback uncertainty in Cleveland, Browns-Patriots was off the board for much of this week.
With Jason Campbell announced as the starter on Friday, the line was established around 10.5 by BOVADA. The total is 48.
The Patriots have covered 6 of the 12 spreads this season and been split evenly in going over and under the total. The Patriots have gone over in three of the last four games.
The Browns are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games and 2-5 on the road against the spread in their last seven.
This is the first time Cleveland’s been a double-digit underdog and the first time they’ve had a total over 45.
Prediction: Patriots 31, Browns 23.
