NFL Betting Lines: Panthers vs Browns Predictions

November 27th, 2010 by

panthers vs brownsIf you have miss any games this weekend on the NFL gambling calendar make sure you miss this game. When the Carolina Panthers (1-9) travel to the Dawg Pound to take on the Cleveland Browns (3-7) put the women and children to bed and spare them the ugliness that is the 2010 Panthers squad.

The Browns are actually a team on the cusp of being competitive but Panthers are so bad that it’s almost pitiable.

Kickoff for this Sunday matchup is set for 1:05 Eastern Time and SBG Global opened with the Browns as a 10-point favorite with an over/under total at 38.

To be fair to the Panthers, luck has not been on this team’s side as it’s lost both its top 2 QBs to injuries. Although, if you’ve seen either Matt Moore (55.6 passer rating) or Jimmy Clausen (53.8 passer rating) play this season you might argue otherwise. The team’s first two options at QB combined for 1,500+ yards and 6 TDs and 10 INTs in 9 games. And its 11.7 ppg scoring average is none to pretty to contemplate and is worst in the league by nearly a TD.

There is actually nothing good to be said about this team that is also amongst the worst in the NFL betting odds on defense as well (25th in the NFL).

Cleveland should have little to no trouble at all handing the Panthers another loss and giving it the dubious distinction of being the first team this season to reach double digits in losses.

Rookie QB Colt McCoy has been awfully good since taking over the starting job in Cleveland and RB Peyton Hillis (10 TDs) has been the breakout player of the year in the NFL.

On defense the Browns have also been decent giving up just 20.6 ppg (11th in the NFL) and should be able to pad those numbers even further against the awful Panthers.

As a simple rule this season the surest bet on any given Sunday is on the team that’s playing the Panthers. This week it just happens to be the Cleveland Browns.

Cleveland should come out on top of the sports betting mismatch and be ready to go next week after the closest thing to a bye week on the NFL schedule.
