Browns vs Dolphins Prediction: Spread
The Cleveland Browns are currently -5.5 favorites over the Falcons, with an undefeated preseason record on their side. For this preseason finale, the Browns plan to play some of their starters, along with star quarterback Baker Mayfield. With this new information, the Browns should certainly be able to cover the spread.

Browns vs Falcons Prediction: MoneyLine
The Browns have played very well this preseason, even with most of their starters not getting any playing time. They have allowed only 26 points in their first two games, and they have combined to score 40 points. Last season, to end NFL’s longest active drought, the Browns made the playoffs for the first time since 2002. Unfortunately, they lost 22-17 to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC divisional round, even though Patrick Mahomes did not play in the second half.
In the regular season, the Browns hope to do what they were unable to do last season: move forward in the 2021 playoffs and work towards becoming serious Super Bowl contenders. Will they defeat Atlanta to go 3-0 in this preseason? Odds are, yes!
On the Atlanta Falcons’ side, they are looking to specifically improve on some offensive struggles, as they have combined for only 20 points in their first two preseason games. This week, by playing a majority of their starters in preparation for the first game of the regular season, the Falcons will aim to gain offensive momentum and give their starters playing time. However, getting their offensive game going will be difficult, as Cleveland’s defense has been particularly strong throughout this preseason.
The Falcons, in all honesty, do not have much of a chance, even though they are playing most of their starters in this preseason finale. Hopefully, they will be able to work out the kinks and bumps before their first regular season game against the Eagles, but as far as I’m concerned, the Browns will probably be winning this game.

Browns vs Falcons Prediction: Total
This is a particularly hard game to predict the outcome for the total (35.5), but I would personally bet on the under for this matchup. That being said, the Browns have enjoyed a very high-scoring preseason, and if they plan on playing their starters on Sunday, chances are, they will likely score a lot of points in this game as well.
On the other side, even though the Falcons are also playing their starters, they have been struggling offensively. For this Sunday night game, I highly doubt that both teams will combine to score over 35.5 points because that means the Browns either completely blow out the Falcons, or the Falcons put up a decent fight. Therefore, I would bet on the under for this game.
Free Prediction: Over -105
