Going into the Divisional Round the Browns are underdogs at legal sports betting sites. The Chiefs are the best team in the league and have been a cash cow for some NFL bettors but this game could end up being closer than betting odds reflect. The Browns +350 moneyline odds would provide a nice return on an upset but if not wanting to risk your bankroll on a Cleveland win there are numerous player props to bet on.
Cleveland Browns AFC Divisional Round Player Props
Baker Mayfield Over/Under Passing Yards
Over 260.5 Passing Yards -114
Under 260.5 Passing Yards -114
Winner: Over 260.5 Passing (-114). The 260.5 passing yards total for Baker Mayfield is somewhat low. Considering that Mayfield could be forced to throw the ball often because the Chiefs have a lead over the Browns is a real possibility in this matchup. Furthermore, Mayfield has eclipsed 260 yards passing in four of his last five games. Take the over for Mayfield here as the Browns-Chiefs matchup will be the highest-scoring of all Divisional Round games.
Nick Chubb Over/Under Rushing Yards
Over 70.5 Rushing Yards -114
Under 70.5 Rushing Yards -114
Winner: Over 70.5 Rushing Yards (-114). Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb has cemented himself among the best at his position. In order for the Cleveland Browns to keep this game close they’ll need to lean on Chubb and the running game to limit the opportunities the high-powered Chiefs offense has on the field. Against a tough Pittsburgh defense, Chubb ran 18 times for 76 yards. Expect for him to find more running lanes against a Chiefs defense that has been average against the run all year.
Jarvis Landry Over/Under Receptions
Over 4.5 Receptions -167
Under 4.5 Receptions +127
Winner: Over 4.5 Receptions (-167). Jarvis Landry has been the top receiver for the Browns this season and against the Chiefs he should remain a major part of the team’s game plan. Landry recording over 4.5 receptions for this game is a strong play as he’s recorded at least 5 receptions in six straight games for the Browns. Expect Landry to extend that streak to seven games in the AFC Divisional Round especially if the Browns find themselves trailing at any point in the game.
The Browns-Chiefs game will kickoff at 3:05 p.m. EST and will be broadcasted by CBS. Odds for the game will be available at legal sports betting until kickoff.
