Browns at Colts: Vegas Spread, Analysis and Picks
The Browns are road favorites for only the fourth time in the last ten seasons, but are they really good enough to be favored over the Colts on Sunday?
According to SportsbookReview.com, the 0-2 Cleveland Browns are 1 1/2-point favorites as they head to Indianapolis for a matchup with the Colts, who are also sitting at 0-2 coming into Week 3.
The Browns haven’t been favored in any game since Week 14 of 2015, and this is the first time they’ve been favored on the road since Week 7 of 2014.
The Colts came about as close as you can get to going 1-1 last week as they lost to the Cardinals in overtime. If Indianapolis would’ve pulled out that victory, it would be hard to see them giving points to a Browns team that has won 1 game over the past two seasons.
The Colts did beat Vegas’ expectation in last week’s game as they only lost by 3 points after coming into the game as a 7-point home underdog.

It appears that Vegas hasn’t adjusted their rating much with the Colts after making an upgrade at quarterback by benching Scott Tolzien for Jacoby Brissett.
Brissett looked solid for the first three quarters last week, but he made a couple crucial mistakes near the end of the game that cost the Colts a victory. I expect Brissett to look much more comfortable in his second start with Indianapolis, and the Colts will pick up their first victory of the season over a Browns team that isn’t used to being favored.
