NFL Betting News
When the NFL season begins, we tend to see teams split off into a number of different categories. Some teams come storming out the gate, while others take a few weeks to get rolling. We have tams that are terrible from the start and who continue that way, as well as some who adopt a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde persona, where we never really know what to expect from week to week. Given that information, it is probably not that surprising that the NFL is always tough to handicap. While the gulf between some teams is huge, we have, for the most part, a very decent level of parity in the league right now.
The Monday night game features a team that has started the season well going against one of the teams who have been tough to peg down. The San Francisco 49ers are off to a perfect start and will be hosting a Cleveland Browns team that has looked great and awful in equal amounts. The 49ers are in as a 3 ½ point home favorite, with the point total for this one set at 46 ½.

Why bet on the Cleveland Browns?
It’s only 4 weeks into the season, but the Cleveland Browns are already displaying a stunning lack of consistency. They looked absolutely terrible in the opening week of the season, committing countless errors on their way to a thrashing at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. They beat the Jets to get back to .500 before dropping their second game of the year to the Rams.
Most had them losing to a Baltimore Ravens team that has looked good in the early going, but the Browns delivered their best performance of the year to get a 40-25 win over their division rivals. The Browns haven’t won much over the years, yet they are 5-1 SU versus the 49ers in their last 6 meetings. They are also 4-1 ATS overall in their last 5 games as the underdog.
