San Diego Chargers vs Cleveland Browns

Point Spread Value

The San Diego Chargers and Cleveland Browns are heading to the golf course in a mere few weeks. There's really not a whole lot to play for in this game, which makes predicting the outcome a little bit tricky as far as the spread is concerned. The Chargers are the better team but will they come through for their backers as the significant road chalk? To date, they are 7-7-0 ATS which makes it a 50-50 shot in essence. Then again, the Browns are merely 2-12-0 ATS with a 13.4 losing margin on average and – 6.2 differential versus the spread. Hanging our hats on the latter for week 16 NFL picks, we're laying the points with the Chargers.

The Survivor

The Cleveland Browns can't buy a win no matter how hard they try. They're well on their way to finishing the season with a 0-16 SU mark and the odds on offer for such an occurrence across sports betting platforms look rather favorable. That said, there is something about this game that could potentially derail what seems inevitable. The Chargers are pretty banged up and don't have a whole lot to play for saving for pride because losing to the Browns would be the embarrassment of the season.

Game Total

In theory, the Chargers' passing offense should have a field day against a Browns team that threw the towel in a long time ago. So why is it a relatively low total on the NFL odds board? Alarm bells do ring. Then again, the Chargers are 8-5-1 in O/U betting while the Browns are 7-7-0 in O/U betting.
