These are the key numbers I’m looking at for the game tonight between the San Francisco 49ers and the Cleveland Browns:
The Browns are 2-2.
The Niners are 3-0.
Niners are one of two undefeated teams remaining in the NFL.
The Browns are coming into their second consecutive road game after defeating the Ravens 40-25.
The Niners are the favorite at -5 and the over/under total is 47.
The money line is Niners -240 and Browns +195.
The Niners are the home team and are also coming in off a bye week.
The Browns are inconsistent. Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham played well earlier this season on Monday Night. They played against the Jets so I don’t give them a great deal of credit for that one. The Niners have played well on defense and they should put pressure on Mayfield.
The prop bets that stand out involve Mayfield throwing an interception. His number is set at -150. He has thrown 1 in every game this season. OBJ receptions are set at 5.5. He gets 9 targets or more a game. I lean over 5.5.
I have a lean toward the Niners to win this game. My lean was good on the TNF game when I took the over in the Rams and Seattle game. So far, I am 5-3 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday. I will stay with the money line.
After the first 4 games the NFL patterns are set. While there is parity in the league several teams are mediocre. The Jets, Miami, Bengals and Washington will not win more than 8 games collectively.
