The Cleveland Browns are coming off a loss to the very tough, second-place San Francisco 49ers and are heading right into another very tough game against the Houston Texans. They'll likely be without running back Peyton Hillis for yet another game and his backup Montario Hardesty. A strong pass defense and the lack of Houston's Andre Johnson, who has been ruled out, give them a little bit more of a chance, but it's going to be a hard-fought game.

OddsShark has the odds for the game, which opened up with Cleveland being a ten-point underdog. That line is maintained through most of the betting sites, with 5Dimes having them as 12-point underdogs, which is the highest. Bodog, BetOnline and the rest of the sites have maintained the opening line.

The Browns do have their work cut out for them, but these odds are still a little bit surprising. Without Johnson and Cleveland's strong pass defense, one would think that it would be a bit closer than a ten-point differential, but those are the odds.
