Neither team has been playing their best football in recent weeks, a fact that only adds fuel to the fire to emerge from this divisional showdown victorious. After originally opening the visitors as a small favorite, the NFL betting oddsmakers have since adjusted the line to favor the home side ahead of this Ravens vs Browns clash.

The following Ravens vs Browns NFL betting preview will give you the current odds, betting trends and picks for the Week 14 matchup, along with a stream link to watch games all season long.

Baltimore Ravens Preview

The Ravens fell a dropped two-point conversion attempt short of their third consecutive win last weekend. Instead, Baltimore had to settle for a one-point defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers. After managing to beat the Browns two weeks ago despite Lamar Jackson throwing four interceptions, Sunday’s NFL betting matchup marks the Ravens’ third straight divisional affair. While John Harbaugh’s crew has managed to maintain a one-game lead in the AFC North standings, each of their three division cohorts is nipping at their heels. A win this week would give Baltimore a season sweep of the Browns and also tie them with the New England Patriots for the best record in the AFC.

Despite their strong record and continued ability to pull out wins, the Ravens face several concerns ahead of Sunday’s road game. The troubles start with Jackson and an offense that has failed to score 20 points in four straight games and five of the last six overall. Given the outlook of facing the Cleveland defense, Jackson will have to make plays through the air if the Ravens hope to break that 20-point barrier on Sunday. In a season that has been filled with injuries, the Ravens suffered another massive blow last week. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey became the latest key cog in the defensive secondary to be lost for the season. Fortunately, the Ravens’ first game without him comes against one of the more inconsistent passing attacks in the league.

Cleveland Browns Preview

The Browns have to feel like they let one get away two weeks ago in Baltimore. Cleveland became the first team in the Super Bowl era to lose a game in which they held their opponent under 350 total yards, under 17 points and forced three interceptions. The extraordinary defensive performance was sabotaged by the inability of Baker Mayfield and the offense to generate much of anything. The Browns’ star-studded backfield duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt could only muster 36 rushing yards combined against the stingy Ravens defensive front. Of course, it is no secret that Mayfield is playing injured. However, his inability to make Baltimore respect the passing attack two weeks ago does not bode well for the franchise’s dwindling playoff hopes. If the struggles continue, even more pressure will fall on Myles Garrett and the defense to stifle opponents.

After a bye week to reminisce on what might have been in Week 12, the Browns will technically be playing two consecutive NFL betting matchups against the same opponent. While the locker room appears to have been struck with a batch of positive virus tests, the unfortunate results and pending absences have not extended to any marquee players at this point. Cleveland does have some key injuries on both sides of the ball that bettors must monitor, however. Wideout Jarvis Landry was limited at practice on Thursday and is vital to the Browns reinvigorating their passing attack on Sunday. Concerning the trenches on either side of the ball, center J.C. Tretter and defensive tackle Malik Jackson are both yet to practice this week.
