The Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans meet up for an AFC regular-season contest in Week 13. The Browns are set as 7-point favorites to get the win on the road, priced at -315 on the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Texans sit at +260, while the total score is set at 47.

The Browns (4-7) have officially relieved Jacoby Brissett of his starting quarterback duties, and will clear the way for Deshaun Watson to come in and salvage what has been a disappointing season. Watson’s 11-game suspension ended this week, just in time to have a revenge performance against his former franchise. While it could take a few plays for Cleveland to get rolling, the one-TD/extra point spread here looks tempting.

Houston sits at 1-9-1, with the focus now turning towards the 2023 NFL Draft. Kyle Allen stepped in at quarterback last week for the benched Davis Mills, as the Texans lost a 30-15 matchup to the Miami Dolphins. Allen is coming off a pedestrian game with 215 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He is set to start again in Week 13.
