Denver Broncos vs. Cleveland Browns Odds & Game Pick (2021)

Oct 19, 2021 - 1:36 PM

The hot start for both of these teams has quickly sizzled over the past two weeks. Just a few weeks ago, both of these teams sat atop their conference, and now they are struggling to find a win. Both of these teams will be fighting to stay above .500 and hope to keep their playoff hopes alive. With offensive starters out for the Cleveland Browns, the Broncos will come out swinging on Thursday. 

There are lots of things to consider going into this Week 7 matchup.

  • Opening Lines: Cleveland Browns -7 
  • Current Lines: Cleveland Browns -4
  • Last Game: November 3, 2019, Denver 24-19
  • Overall Record: Denver Broncos 24-6


The Denver Broncos have dominated this series over the years. The Denver Broncos lead the series 24-6 and have outscored the Cleveland Browns 752-474. Cleveland has won two games at home during this series and the last time they won at home was in 1989. This series has been heavily one-sided, and with the injuries on offense to the Cleveland Browns, the Denver Broncos have a chance to continue their dominance.  

The Cleveland Browns have key offensive starters that are likely to be out during this game. Baker Mayfield received a big hit on Sunday and has a shoulder injury that requires an MRI. Their dynamic running back duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt is banged up and will not play against the Denver Broncos. Whenever the three players that touch the ball the most are out, that is never a good sign for an offense. 

Cleveland Browns backup Case Keenum is going to be going up against the fourth-best defense in the NFL. Keenum has a 46% completion rating since he has been playing for the Cleveland Browns. That completion percentage is going to make it tough to win a game without their star running backs. The Broncos have every advantage going into this matchup. 

Bottom Line

The Cleveland Browns have too many injuries to win this game. The Broncos have too much history behind them, and Cleveland hasn’t found a way to beat the Broncos in Ohio for 32 years. The Broncos have been stale on offense, which means I would minimize the number of units I place on this game. The Moneyline is too much value to ignore in this matchup. History is on our side with this one.

Pick: Denver Broncos Moneyline (+150)
