The Ravens are touchdown favorites over the visiting Cleveland Browns ahead of their matchup Sunday, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.

After a 24-20 loss Sunday to the New York Giants that dropped them into a tie for first place in the AFC North, the Ravens (3-3) are 6 1/2-point favorites in Week 7. Cleveland (2-4) has dropped three straight games, most recently a 38-15 blowout loss to the New England Patriots.


The Ravens have been touchdown favorites only once this season, in their season opener against the New York Jets, who were 6 1/2-point underdogs. The Ravens covered the spread in a 24-9 win. The Browns, who are without suspended starting quarterback Deshaun Watson, have been favorites in four of their six games this season but are 1-3 in those matchups, losing to the Jets, Patriots and Atlanta Falcons and beating the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to CBS Sports, the Ravens have covered the spread in their past five meetings against Cleveland. They’re also 5-1 dating to last season against the spread after failing to cover the spread in their previous game.


The Ravens lead the all-time series 34-12, with wins in four of their past five meetings. The Ravens won in Baltimore last season despite four interceptions by quarterback Lamar Jackson but lost at FirstEnergy Stadium, 24-22, after Jackson was knocked out with a season-ending ankle injury.

The over-under for Sunday’s game is 46 1/2 points.
