Browns vs. Bengals Week 12 NFL Prediction from Mike Lundin: November 26th 2017

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Week 12 NFL Prediction: Cincinnati -7.5 (November 26th 2017)

The Cincinnati Bengals had dropped back-to-back games (at Jacksonville and Tennessee) before defeating the Broncos 20-17 at Denver last week.

They’ll surely look forward to play in front of the home fans again for the first time in almost a month, and I think they’ll win big here against the Cleveland Browns.

Cleveland is the only team in the NFL without a win on the season, and that’s unlikely to change today. Note that the Browns are 3-13-1 ATS in their last 17 road games and just 1-8 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, which the Bengals have coming into this game at 4-6 on the season. They still have an outside chance of making the playoffs though, so there’s no reason for them not to take this game seriously.

The Bengals blasted the blasted the Browns 31-7 earlier in the season and they’re 6-0 ATS last six meetings.

My free pick is on Cincinnati Bengals.

Browns vs. Jaguars Week 11 NFL Spread Pick from Will Rogers: November 19th 2017

Cleveland Browns vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Week 11 NFL Point Spread Pick: CLE +7.5 (November 19th 2017)

The setup: The Browns will suit up once again on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, to host the Jacksonville, Jags. The Bowns have followed their 1-15 season of 2016 by opening the 2017 season at 0-9 and remain the lone win-less NFL team. Meanwhile, the Jags have been on of 2017’s biggest surprise, as after entering 2017 having failed to win more than five games in any of the previous six seasons, Jacksonville is 6-3 heading into this Week 11 game. A victory over the win-less Browns would give the Jags a 7-3 record and a one-game lead over the 6-4 Tennessee Titans in the AFC South!

Jacksonville: The Jags enter on a three-game winning streak beating the Colts, Bengals and Chargers. In that Chargers game, QB Blake Bortles threw for 273 yards with a TD and two picks. His starting job was on the line in the preseason but Bortles has cut down on his mistakes and while hardly doing anything special, has been adequate up to this point (58.6% with 11 TDs & 7 INTs for an 81.8 QB rating). Jacksonville ranks 24th in passing yards (207.8 YPG) but led by rookie Fournette (629 yards / 4.3 YPC / 6 TDs) when healthy plus a deep RB ‘stable’ when not, the Jags lead the NFL with 163.0 YPG on the ground. Then there’s the Jacksonville defense, which is allowing an NFL-low 14.9 PPG on 285.8 YPG, which ranks second-best. The Jaguars also lead the NFL with 35 sacks.

Cleveland: I guess it’s fair to ask, how does Hue Jackson (now 1-24 with the Browns) keep his job but is it possible any coach could do much better with this ‘mess’ in Cleveland? Both QBs, DeShone Kizer and backup Kevin Hogan,appeared on the injury list  this week with issues but Kizer is expected to start. However, promising WR Corey Coleman is expected to be activated from the IR after having surgery on a broken bone in his hand. Kizer wasn’t bad last week in a 38-24 loss at Detroit, throwing 232 yards with for one TD and one INT. However. Kizer completes just 52.8% with four TD passes and 12 INTs (QB rating is a horrific 54.4!). The offense ransk 31st scoring 15.9 PPG and the defense ranks 30th, allowing 26.7 PPG).

The pick: The Jaguars have beaten some pretty good teams this year and they’re starting to morph into a contender but this is their first three-game winning streak since 2013. Six Jaguars did not practice Wednesday, linebacker Blair Brown (hamstring), wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee), wide receiver Allen Hurns (ankle), left guard Patrick Omaneh, right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee) and defensive end Dawuane Smoot (knee). As for the Browns, the 24 points they scored vs. the Lions were the most they’ve scored since a 31-28 loss to the Colts at Indianapolis back in Week 3. Also, while Cleveland allows 26.7 PPG (20th), the defense ranks 11th in YPG at 317.0. The Browns got a useful list of bulletin-board fodder during the week when the Jags’ Tashaun Gipson said Cleveland will probably go 0-16, the Jaguars will shut them out and that he hopes the offense scores 40 points against them. Take the home dog!
