New England Patriots vs. Cleveland Browns

The New England Patriots vs. Cleveland Browns odds had the Patriots as a 4-point road dog in Cleveland.  Some online sportsbooks still listed the Patriots at -4.5, however, the majority gamblers will likely want to bet the -4 considering the Patriots were the most wagered on team coming into Week 8 of the NFL.  Slightly over 90 percent of those betting the spread were backing New England in this game.  Nearly 80 percent of those wagering on the money line were backing New England as well (as a -230 favorite no less).  The total was listed at 44 with close to 70 percent on the UNDER.

The Browns are coming off a tremendous high having beaten the reigning Super Bowl champion Saints in New Orleans two weeks ago, prior to their bye week.  Still, they are only 2-5 and it remains to be seen how they will follow up this performance.  Cleveland is 7-2 Against The Spread in their last 9 games following a ATS win.

The Patriots come into this game looking like the best team in the AFC once again.  They have gone 6-1 thus far, winning their last five games.  New England is the only team in the NFL with fewer than 2 losses.
