The Ravens suffered a surprise 22-19 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in overtime, who were without No. 4 overall pick Anthony Richardson due to a concussion. Despite being led by Gardner Minshew’s 227 passing yards and a touchdown, it was kicker Matt Gay who had a performance to remember. He converted four field goals of over 50 yards, including the overtime game-winner.
Lamar Jackson finished with 202 passing yards but had a more efficient 14 carries for 102 rushing yards and two scores on the ground in the effort.
The Browns bounced back from their Week 2 loss with a dominant effort from Myles Garrett and their defense. Cleveland’s star pass rusher finished with 3.5 sacks in a Week 3 win over the Tennessee Titans, while the Browns defense limited Tennessee to just 94 yards of total offense. Cleveland’s offense was efficient, as Deshaun Watson finished 27/33 for 289 yards and two touchdowns.
Both of these teams are 2-1 against the spread, though the Browns have covered in each of their two home games so far. Cleveland has a +8.5 average scoring margin this season, but that number skyrockets to +21 when playing at home. Led by Garrett’s All-Pro caliber play, the Browns’ defense should have enough to stifle Jackson and the Ravens’ running game and cover the spread in their Week 4 matchup.
Pick: Browns -2
