The Cleveland Browns and the Oakland Raiders are both going in the wrong direction this season. Both teams stand at 3-8 as they seem to be in a battle for draft lottery position. The Raiders are currently narrow favorites, with a line of about 1.5 points.
After a rough 0-5 star to the season, the Cleveland Browns are starting to gain positive momentum, winning three of their last six games. Cleveland has beaten Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and San Diego, and have also had some close calls against the Indianapolis Colts, the Baltimore Ravens and the Dallas Cowboys.
The Oakland Raiders aren't doing quite as well. After improving to 3-4 on the season, the team has been in free fall. They beat two one-win teams in a row in the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Kansas City Chiefs, then have dropped four straight in increasingly lopsided fashion. The Raiders lost a shootout with Tampa Bay, then got blown out by the Ravens, the Saints and the Bengals.
