The Cleveland Browns have opened as early 7.5-point underdogs against the Green Bay Packers ahead of their Week 16 match-up on Christmas Day, according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The over/under on the game is currently 45.
The Browns are coming off of a deflating 16-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, a loss that still stings as I wake up this morning. The expectation is that Cleveland will get the majority of their players back from the COVID-19 list, so we’ll see if that narrows the spread at all come Christmas Day.
Crazily enough, at this point, the Packers game is not a must-win for the Browns. A win would certainly help, but if the Chiefs do some dirty work for the Browns and Baltimore’s woes continue a bit, the Browns could possibly win the AFC North with a 9-8 record.
