Chiefs vs Browns NFL Week 14 Point Buying Spread Prediction

It’s rare for us to jump on a betting option that features two teams that own a combined 6-18 record but that’s where we are headed this weekend. The Cleveland Browns host the Kansas City Chiefs as part off the early NFL Week 14 action. Kickoff for this AFC inter-divisional battle is scheduled for 1:00 PM ET, December 9, 2012, from Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland, OH. We are buying a point and backing the Chiefs!

Cleveland Browns: Riding rare two game winning streak

Enjoying their first two game winning streak since Week 2 & 3 of the 2011 NFL season, the Cleveland Browns return home after a 20-17 road win in Oakland last week. Prior to that, the Browns shocked the Steelers with a 20-14 home win during Week 12 action. Let’s not get too excited here, the Brownies are still a bad football club as is evident by their 27th ranking on offense and their 23rd ranking on defense.

Kansas City Chiefs: Look to build on emotional Week 13 victory

Give credit to the Chiefs who played with heavy hearts and beat the Carolina Panthers 27-21 in Week 13 action. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles put in an especially inspiring effort as he gained 138 total yards while carrying what must have been an inconceivable load of guilt – even though he had no way to forecast the tragedy that occurred the day before. KC goes out on the road for the first time since November 12.

Dating back to the 2006 NFL season Cleveland has been home chalk 22 times in 102 games. The Brownies have posted an 9-11-2 record ATS in those contests – despite 18 of the 22 lines being posted at 4.5 points or less. The Chiefs played the Steelers tough in a 16-13 OT loss the last time they went out on the road. They also hung with Denver during a 17-9 Week 12 home contest that was closer then the final score indicates.
