Betting Odds

Point Spread: 
San Diego -6

The winless Cleveland Browns (0-14) will be assuredly asking Santa Claus for a win this Christmas as they host the San Diego Chargers (5-9) at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio on Christmas Eve. The Browns come in off yet another rout suffered at the hands of the Buffalo Bills, last Sunday. However, Santa may come through after all. The forecast is calling for a cold and snowy White Christmas in the Cleveland area and undoubtedly that will help the Browns cause with getting their first win this season. The contest will be aired on CBS for regional audiences. Kick-off is slated for 1:00 PM ET.


Public Money Consensus

82% of the public like the Chargers spotting the points to the Browns. At the spread, Cleveland comes in at -115 taking the points as opposed to laying the points with the Bolts at -105. On the Money Line, San Diego is offered as a -245 road favorite while the Browns come in as a +205 home pooch. Contrary to what we see against the spread 77% of the public are sitting on the Dawgs on the Money Line as a heavy home dog despite their fourteenth consecutive loss last week. Currently in Over/Under markets, the Over/Under is sitting at 43.5 with 76% of the public liking the Under. This market has dropped by two points since the open.

San Diego Chargers at Cleveland Browns Prediction

Warm weather teams may find themselves in all sorts of trouble this time of year. The ecosystem in the Midwest is far contrasting to the warm and temperate sunny shores of San Diego. The Bolts love to throw the ball as well and they may be relying on this initiative even more with respect to injuries that have hampered their rushing department even more. With this being said, San Diego may have a lot of trouble playing in these frigid temperatures which to the Browns is another day at the office. Cleveland is hungry for their first win and situationally on paper this scenario sets up perfectly for them to just that. San Diego is not a good enough football team to spotting points to anyone, including Cleveland. With Cleveland ever inching closer to infamy, the Browns will come out in desperation to avoid the stigma of being the second winless team in NFL history. While there is likely a mass exodus on queue for many of the Browns’ talent in the off-season, the fact remains they have one more chance to give their fans something to cheer about on Christmas morning. While the weather may play a factor in this affair, many may feel inclined to hop on the Under. However, the weather will only truly influence San Diego’s efforts. Cleveland may not just win this one but do so convincingly.
