If the Cleveland Browns beat the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night -- or even come close to doing so -- it will come as a surprise to Vegas oddsmakers. The Browns will enter Baltimore as 12-point underdogs, according to Oddshark. That's the second largest spread of the week -- only the Tennessee Titans, who are getting 13.5 points against the Houston Texans, are bigger underdogs heading into the week.

Cleveland has started the season 0-3, but they've gone 1-1-1 vs. the spread in those three games. The Ravens, meanwhile, have a 2-1 record against the spread to match their actual 2-1 record on the season. The over/under for the game is set at 44.5, which is a slightly low number considering the point per game averages for both teams this year. Baltimore is averaging nearly 33 points per game while the Browns have averaged 19 points a game -- that lower over/under total for Thursday's game can likely be read as pessimism regarding Cleveland's offense.
