Browns vs Chiefs Prediction: Spread
The Chiefs are one of the main Super Bowl favorites, so it is no surprise that they come in as the expected winner. However, Cleveland is talented and will be seeking revenge after Kansas City eliminated them last postseason. The Chiefs should be able to cover the spread, but the Browns are going to make them earn it.
The pressure is on for Baker Mayfield. The Browns’ greatest offensive strength is their run game, and Kansas City knows that. If Mayfield can step up and produce, that might catch the Chiefs’ defense off-guard.
Once again, the Chiefs should be able to cover this spread, but the game will likely come down to the wire.
- Free Prediction: Chiefs – 6
Browns vs Chiefs Prediction: Moneyline
The current moneyline is extremely fair. It is not lopsided one way or the other, and it helps to predict how close this game may be. As a rule of thumb, the Chiefs are the team to pick regardless of opponent this season, barring a high-profile injury.
- Free Prediction: Chiefs – 275 Browns + 220
Browns vs Chiefs Prediction: Total
Both of these offenses are good. The Chiefs boast an offense that features arguably the three best players at their position in Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill.
The Browns feature a dynamic running game led by Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Although the Browns strengthened their defense during the offseason, expect these offenses to put on a show.
We will take the over and even up the total by five points.
- Free Prediction: 58
The Browns will need the passing game to be effective in this one. Mayfield showed improvement last season, and that should continue during this campaign.
Kareem Hunt is one of the better receiving backs in the NFL and will be used often in the passing game while Chubb will run in high volume.
Edwards-Helaire could have a breakout season in Kansas City. With most defenses focused on the high-powered passing attack of the Chiefs, he could see less attention and might post up big numbers.
- Free Prediction: Baker Mayfield over 250.5 passing yards
- Free Prediction: Kareem hunt over 19.5 receiving yards
- Free Prediction: Clyde Edwards-Helaire over 80.5 rushing yards
