Total: 48 points

The Cleveland Browns have gotten some good news this week, and may be that balances some of the bad news they have had lately. They come in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta with an opportunity for bigger plays at the wide receiver position, now that Josh Gordon has come off a ten-game suspension, and they really need something to happen through the air, since they have not been able to move the ball on the ground at all, gaining just 2.4 yards per carry over their last four games.

BetAnySports customers are discovering a little more about the erratic side of Brian Hoyer, the Browns’ quarterback, who completed just 20 of his 50 passes against Houston last week. Don’t get us wrong; Hoyer has not faltered enough for the widespread cry for Johnny Manziel to go out, but football bettors must understand that the stakes are higher for the Browns right now, as they are in the midst of a battle for the division title. At 6-4, they are just below Cincinnati (6-3-1) and Pittsburgh (7-4) in the AFC North.

Atlanta is 4-6 straight-up and 5-5 against the football betting odds. Even with a losing record, they are technically the leaders in the NFC South at the moment, because of the season ended today, they would win the tie-breaker with the New Orleans Saints by virtue of their head-to-head victory over them. Yes, it is shameful that everybody in the division has a losing record, but it’s the opportunity to advance to the playoffs that might have given the Falcons some life. Indeed, they have won consecutive games on the road, which is a major accomplishment for them, even if they have come against the likes of Tampa Bay and Carolina.

BetAnySports Asian Sportsbooks customers know that the Falcons don’t bring much defense into the situation, as they allow six yards per play. And they also permit the opposition to convert 47.5% of third downs. But unless the Browns get immediate and important contributions from Gordon, they could find themselves getting stopped short on offense. Matt Ryan can do some business for Atlanta (65%, 17 touchdowns) and Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden will have his hands full with Julio Jones, who already has 912 receiving yards.
