Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Cleveland Browns Point Spread - Pick ATS

Jacksonville Jaguars (6-3 SU, 5-4 ATS) vs. Cleveland Browns (0-9 SU, 2-7 ATS)
NFL Week 11
Date/Time: Sunday, November 19, 1:00pm ET
Where: FirstEnergy Stadium - Cleveland,OH 
TV: CBS
by Bob, NFL Football Handicapper, Predictem.com

Point Spread: JAX -7/CLE +7
Over/Under Total: 37

This Sunday in Cleveland, Ohio the newly charged and confident Jacksonville Jaguars will invade FirstEnergy Stadium to take on the 0-9 Cleveland Browns.  The Jaguars are sitting in a tie for first place with the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South and this game SHOULD be one to keep the winning going for the Jags.  Cleveland of course, is dead last in the NFL at 0-9 and after the 49ers win last weekend, the Browns are the leagues only team without a win. On a side note, these two teams have not faced off since 2014 and a lot has changed since that time.  Can Cleveland FINALLY get a win this weekend or will Jacksonville prove that they are now a team to reckon with in the AFC?

It seems just like yesterday that Jacksonville was the team always taking the beating in the NFL.  Whenever you saw the Jaguars on the schedule, you had a good feeling your team was going to get the W that Sunday.  Well, not anymore. Jacksonville comes in this Sunday as a seven point road favorite over the Browns.  It is not too often you see a team on the road in the NFL favored by a full touchdown but that is the case this Sunday in Cleveland.  Jacksonville is starting to get some love from the gamblers out in Vegas.  Not only are they a TD favorite on the road, but 66% of the action thinks the Jaguars cover the spread.  A road game in the NFL is never easy but we will see how this one plays out. 

So lets take a look and see how in the world Cleveland could possibly win this game on Sunday.  Taking a glance statistically, it looks near impossible.  At 0-9 on the season and in the those nine games only covering the spread twice, Cleveland is worse than we think.  The Browns rank 31st in points scored on the season and they rank 30th on points allowed.  As for the defensive stat, some of that blame I put on the offense.  Turnovers, three and outs, and just stalled drives keeps the defense on the field and in bad spots.  I am calling out the Browns offense this Sunday and it will be the offense that has to improve if Cleveland wants to win not just this weekend...but at all in 2017.

Cleveland is going to have their hands full this Sunday.  Why?  Many people do not realize just how good this Jacksonville team is.  With rookie running back, Leonard Fournette carrying the load, the Jags are the number one rushing team in all of the NFL averaging 163 yards per game.  Along with a stout run game, the Jaguars also rank #1 in defense.  Jacksonville is only allowing opponents to score right at 14 points a game.  A great run game and a hard nosed defense is how titles are won.  I am not saying Jacksonville is ready for the Super Bowl yet, but they are making strides to get themselves in the conversation here in the upcoming years.

The key for Cleveland to have any chance this weekend is to not turn the ball over.  This team has been plagued by turnovers. Quarterback, DeShone Kizer, has thrown four touchdowns to go along with 12 interceptions and three fumbles lost...cmon man...that is just bad football.  Not only does Cleveland need to protect the ball, they are going to have to make the Jaguars pass the ball.  The Browns need to stack the box, stop Fournette for running wild, and make Blake Bortles beat them with his arm.  I am not saying Bortles cannot do that, but Cleveland just cannot let Jacksonville do what they've done all year.

As much as I hate picking road favorites in the NFL, especially ones that are a full touchdown faves, I just cannot find any reason to think that Cleveland competes in this game.  I think the Jacksonville Jaguars come in and dominate in all phases of the game.  The Jaguars will leave Cleveland with a ho hum type 23-9 win and improve to 7-3 while the Browns go to 0-10 in 2017.
