Cleveland Browns vs Los Angeles Chargers Preview
This game is hands down the highlight of the late window.
In what is shaping up to be a potential playoff preview, the Chargers will host the Browns as short-priced favourites with both teams hoping to improve to 4-1.
These two sides have had no trouble scoring points this year, while on the flip side, both defences have been playing out of their skin.
Three of the last five games between the Browns and Chargers have been decided by three points or fewer, and given how evenly matched this game feels, it wouldn’t be surprising if a field goal or a costly turnover decides it.
As far as betting goes, I’m with the Chargers outright for a few reasons.
Firstly, SoFi has proven a tough environment for visiting road teams this year, while I also think the Chargers are a little more battle-tested in terms of who they’ve played so far.
Los Angeles has faced a playoff-like schedule against Washington, Dallas, Kansas City, and Vegas, and not to take anything away from the Browns, but games against Houston, Chicago, and Minnesota aren’t really of the same caliber.
I’m also wary of Baker Mayfield following a less-than-convincing performance last week.
The defence paved the way for a win over the Vikings, but if Baker fails to hit targets, the Browns are in for a long day against this well-oiled Chargers machine.
