NFL odds and lines, Week 9: Ravens vs. Browns 2013

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens are favored on the road in Cleveland.

The Ravens will travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns after spending Week 8 on a bye. The Ravens are 3-4 entering Week 9, while the Browns are 3-5 after a loss to the Chiefs. The Ravens are favored by 2.5 points on the road against the Browns, according to OddsShark. The over/under for the contest is 41 points.

The Browns will host veteran Jason Campbell at quarterback for the second game in a row. After starting the season at 3-3, the Browns have lost their last two games. Cleveland has absolutely no running game, which has made it even harder for the passing game to take off since the Browns lost Brian Hoyer to an ACL tear.

The Ravens are well-rested and are likely to use their balanced offense to take down Cleveland. Wide receiver Torrey Smith is among the league leaders in receiving yards, while Ray Rice is still among the top running backs in the league. The Ravens can hold off the Browns lowly offense, they will easily cover the spread.
