The Cleveland Browns have had a rough season, but their three victories have come against teams at the bottom of the NFL. That means this weekend's game against the St. Louis Rams should be a solid opportunity for the Browns to break through with their fourth victory of the season. SB Nation's odds partner Oddshark agrees, as they have installed the Browns as a 2.5 point favorite:
Cleveland has struggled, but they get a Rams team that is winless SU and ATS in its past 6 road games. St. Louis sees other trends working against them here as they are just 1-8 ATS past 9 games as an underdog.
Cleveland needs to clear up its running back situation. Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty are already ruled out for this week, giving the starting running back job to Chris Ogbonnaya. The Rams also shut down the powerful Saints offense two weeks ago, so they have the ability to pull the upset here.
