NFL odds and lines, Browns vs. Vikings 2013: Minnesota favored in Week 3

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings are favored to get their first win before the Cleveland Browns, as the two winless teams face off on Sunday in a Week 3 matchup.

The Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings will face off for their Week 3 matchup on Sunday. Minnesota just fell to the division rival Chicago Bears in their second game, 31-30, and are 0-2 heading into this one. The Browns, despite playing close with their division rivals, the Baltimore Ravens, are also 0-2. So barring a tie, one of these teams will have a victory after Sunday.

According to the betting lines over at OddsShark, the Vikings are the team likely to end up with said win. Minnesota opened as six-point favorites, but the line has moved further in their favor throughout the week.

The over/under for the matchup has hovered right around 41 points throughout the week. Minnesota neared that total by themselves last week, but the Browns only managed six points against the Ravens, so take that for what it is. According to the OddsShark matchup page, the total has gone under in four of Minnesota's last six games, but under in a whopping nine of Cleveland's last 12.
