Browns vs Cardinals Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 6

by Mitchell MartinOctober 15, 2021
  • Can Kyler continue his impressive start?
  • Browns need this after last weeks shootout
  • Can the Cardinals stop Myles Garrett

When the Cardinals visit Cleveland in week 6 they better be ready for a heavy dose of Nick Chubb and Kreem Hunt. The pair has been remarkable this season and will likely be a serious part of the Browns attack, especially in the dog pound.

For the Cardinals, it has been a dream start to the season. The Cards are 5-0 for the first time since 1974 and have beat some pretty formidable opponents. They will be looking to keep JJ Watt rolling against the potent ground game the Browns produce.

Betting Odds & Lines for This Game

Browns vs Cardinals Prediction: Spread

Kyler Murray is an early-season candidate for MVP and, quite frankly, probably the front runner. Murray, so far this season, has played to a 113.0 QBR and 75.2 % of his passes, both good for first in the NFL.

Although Cleveland is tough to play, I would still side with the Cardinals getting 3.5 this game. Deandre Hopkins will have a Mike Williams ESC week. Last week against this Browns secondary, wideout Williams had eight receptions for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Considering their similar build and ball catching skills, it’s not crazy to think Hopkins mirrors Williams’s production from last week.

  • Free Prediction: ARI +3.5 (-110)

Browns vs Cardinals Prediction: MoneyLine

The Browns pass rush is one of the best, if not the best in the league, that draws me towards the Browns Moneyline. As you can see in the spread, this will likely be a close game, and a Browns win by a field goal would get the job done on both bets.

This season the defensive line of the browns led by Garett has accumulated 16 sacks (t-3rd) and 43 quarterback hits (1st). This stat is good to base your bets on if they were to be playing a pocket passing quarterback. With Kyler Murray at the Helm for the Cardinals, though, I am not very confident in this line getting the job done, considering his athleticism.

  • Free Prediction: CLE (-184)

Browns vs Cardinals Prediction: Total

Over, Over and Over. If the beginning of this didn’t hammer it enough, I like the over in this game a lot. Last week the Browns pass defense was atrocious, allowing Justin Herbert to light it up, throwing for 398 yards and four touchdowns.

On the Cardinals side of the ball, their pass defense is slightly better but has still allowed over 20 points in three of their five games this season. With the Browns’ ability to switch it up on the ground and in the air, I think this game will be a shootout.

Prop Predictions

Race to 25 points (ARI)

This team has been high-flying all season, and Kyler is a big reason for that. This season, the cards have topped 30 points in four of their five games, making them a prime candidate to beat out the Browns to 25 points first.

Arizona Cardinals (+2.5) & Over (50.5) points (+350)

Pairing this bet with the ARI point spread should make for a pretty lucrative game. Following my predictions, earlier the over seems like a no-brainer, and if the Cardinals are the team you favor, this is a nice Parlay offered by Fan Duel.
