The Baltimore Ravens still hold the tiebreaker for the top spot in the AFC North over the Cincinnati Bengals, but they can ill afford to lose another game.
In Week 14, they head to Cleveland to take on a different divisional opponent, the Browns.
Deshaun Watson has looked rusty in both of his game since returning from suspensions, which should set up the Ravens for another winnable game, despite likely still missing Lamar Jackson.
Let’s dive into the odds for this Week 14 matchup.

Ravens vs. Browns Prediction and Pick
My strategy is simple. Until Deshaun Watson looks like his old self, I will continue to bet against the Browns. Through his first two starts, he’s completing only 59.4% of passes, is averaging only 5.3 yards per throw, and has just one touchdown to two interceptions.
The Ravens also have the perfect recipe for slowing down the Browns. Cleveland relies on its run game, especially with Watson being rusty the last two weeks. Thankfully for Ravens fans and bettors, Baltimore ranks third in the NFL in opponent yards per carry, keeping teams to averaging only 3.8 yards per rush.
That number is even better of their last three games, the Ravens are keeping teams to just 2.8 yards per carry, the best mark in the NFL over that stretch.
Tyler Huntley is certainly not Lamar Jackson, but the Browns have struggled to slow down anyone this season, ranking 20th in opponent yards per play.
If Baltimore can run the ball and limit its turnovers, I think they can at least keep this game to a field goal. I have zero faith in Watson and the Browns, so give me the Ravens as small underdogs.
