Patriots Browns Betting – NFL’s Best Travel To Take On Lowly Browns Sunday
How things have changed in the National Football League over the past two seasons. For the New England Patriots, last Sunday’s 28-18 win over the Minnesota Vikings included a brief blast from the past with the return of Pro Bowl wide receiver Randy Moss. As has been the case over their five-game winning streak however, the Patriots dismissed the potential for any distraction with a solid game plan and execution, and the result is New England entering this Sunday’s game at Cleveland Browns Stadium with the best record in the NFL at 6-1.

The Browns on the other hand have just two wins on the season. However, one of Cleveland’s victories came in their last game, which was over the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The Browns got a chance to enjoy their biggest win in the past couple of years over their bye week, but now brace for a couple more tough opponents, as they will host the Patriots and New York Jets in consecutive weeks.
Why To Bet On The Patriots?
The Patriots have been flawless since falling apart in the second half of a 28-14 football betting loss to the division rival Jets in week two, ripping off five straight wins, including victories over teams that made the playoffs the previous season in each of their last three. Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady has regained the swagger that made him so effective prior to the knee injury he suffered on the first play of the 2008 season, and looked solid again in throwing for 240 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Vikings. Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis has emerged as New England’s top running back, and rushed for 112 yards and a pair of touchdowns against a Minnesota run defense that was for a long time the best in the league. The Patriots’ defense allowed just once second-half score against Minnesota, and has shown improvement every week this season.
Why To Bet On The Browns?
ith only a 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals to take as a positive through the first six weeks of the season, the Browns rallied together to prove they weren’t as bad as they have played so far. Four interceptions of one of the league’s top signal-caller were testament to their ability. Kicker Phil Dawson is automatic, and as long as the offense can do just enough to get in to the red zone without turning the ball over, the Browns should stay competitive. Head coach Eric Mangini playing against his former betting on NFL team adds to the storyline for this game.
How The Game Will Play Out
While the Browns did get the job done against the Saints for their second win of the season, it’s unlikely that Brady will hand them four interceptions this weekend. The Patriots are as good as any team in the league right now, and playing with a focus and determination that is unrivalled. Their win streak will easily continue this week.
