Bad news this week: the Carolina Panthers have to play football. Good news for the Browns however, as they host them 1:05 EST from the Dog Pound.
The Panthers lost by 24 points last week at home to the Ravens, and they lost by 15 the week before to the Bucs. Oh and they lost by 31 the week before that to the Saints. I should probably also mention that they lost by 10 the week before that to the Rams. They beat the Niners before that, but before that they lost by 17 to Chicago, 13 to Cinci, 13 to Tampa again, and 13 to the Giants. And there you have it, the Panthers season. They are the worst offensive team in the league, and they lose big in every game. It’s hard to say anything positive about them, so I won’t.

The Browns are everyone’s favorite story. Colt McCoy is proving his critics wrong, showing great poise and leadership while quarterbacking the Browns to wins of the Saints, Pats, and an overtime loss to the Jets. They lost a close one in Jacksonville last week, but it was a predictable trap game for a team that had over achieved in three straight games. Cleveland are one of those odd teams that if you only look at the rankings and record, you’d assume they’re one of the worst in the league. They’re 3-7, but they’re one of the toughest teams to play week in week out. In their 7 losses, 4 of them have come by a margin of 6 points or less. They’re now entering the easiest part of their schedule, with the Panthers, Dolphins, Bills and Bengals in their next 3. They then host the Ravens and Steelers to close out the year, and if you’re looking for a team to go on a big run, Cleveland could be a very wise choice.

Panthers vs. Browns Prediction for Week 12 Betting:
Spread Prediction (Top Play): The Panthers can’t score, and although their defense is good at preventing yards, they’re not good at preventing points, if you follow. When teams do get into the Panthers red zone, they score, so don’t be deceived by their rank of 7th against the pass. Like I said above, the Panthers have lost a lot of games by a lot of points. In 8 of their 9 losses, they’ve lost by more than 10 points, which is the spread in this game. I think the number is low because the odds makers think they can bait betters into taking Carolina, but like I said, don’t be deceived. The Browns should win this game quite easily. Cleveland have a good running game with Peyton Hillis rushing for close to 100 yards a game. I have no reason to believe the Panthers will turn it around this week, so take the Browns minus the points.
Top Play Prediction = Cleveland -9.5
Game Total Prediction: Such low numbers are hard to come by. I urged readers to take the Under in the Panthers game last week, and their lack of D ruined my prediction. I’m not going to make the same mistake this week. Cleveland will score this week, and the Panthers have been good for just over 10 points in the last few games. It’ll be close, but this number is just too low to bet on.
Prediction = Over 37.5
