Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today at Cappers Info, I’m making my Sunday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and NFL odds for the Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos game on Sunday, December 23rd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Cleveland Browns (5-9, 8-5-1 ATS) +13.5
Denver Broncos (11-3, 8-6 ATS) -13.5
Another great spot for a teaser for sure. The Browns haven’t lost a game by more than 17 points all year long, and you have to go back to the end of the 2010 season to find the last time they were beaten by three full touchdowns. Is it justified to ultimately make the Browns double digit underdogs? It’s tough to argue otherwise after the Broncos just went on the road and beat the snot out of the likely eventual AFC North champs, the Baltimore Ravens 34-17 in a game truly wasn’t that close.
QB Peyton Manning isn’t going to falter for sure either. He has just two TD passes in his last two games, but he also has seven games with three touchdowns as well. QB Brandon Weeden isn’t going to be able to keep up with that in all likelihood, but he has proven that he can make some big plays happen regardless of how things are going in the game. RB Trent Richardson is probably getting the ball a bit more in this one as well, knowing that he only touched it 11 times on the ground last week and made it known that he was unhappy about it.
The Broncos have only scored less than 26 points in a game once since Week 5, and they haven’t scored fewer than 17 in a game all year long. If they are going to get into at least the mid-20s, there is a great chance that this one is going to reach the ‘total’ as well. This is a perfect in-game teaser, though I do recommend teasing the Browns with anything you can find that makes sense in Week 16.
