2023 NFL Regular Season Game
Baltimore Ravens (2-1, 1-0 Away) vs Cleveland Browns (2-1, 2-0 Home)
Date: Sunday, Oct. 1
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Venue: Cleveland Browns Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio
TV Channel: CBS
Live Stream: NFL+
Live Radio: WBAL radio (Ravens) and 92.3 The Fan (Browns)
The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns meet for the 49th time at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday when they take the field at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Yes, that is in fact the name of the Browns’ stadium, because apparently their stadium name is just as bland as their logo, helmets, and team name. The Browns won their most recent matchup with the Ravens 13-3 last Dec. 17 at Cleveland, and they might be turning the tide of this series in their favor even though the Ravens have won 35 of the previous 48 games.

Ravens at Browns Preview
Ravens-Browns games usually end with the Ravens coming out on top. However, that historical pattern might be changing in a hurry, because between these two teams the Browns now have the better defense, the better running game, the better offensive line, the better wide receivers, and (at least arguably) the better quarterback, too. When the Ravens and Browns meet for the 49th time on Sunday, fans shouldn’t expect the same type of game that they are used to seeing.
Ravens vs. Browns Predictions and NFL Picks Week 4
The Cleveland Browns have been a different team at home in recent outings. Over their last six home games, they have gone 5-1. During that stretch, Cleveland has averaged 21.5 points per game and held its opponents to only 9.3 points per game -- a 12.2-point differential. That looks good on paper, and one might expect the trend to continue Sunday -- particularly since the Ravens have lost running back J.K. Dobbins for a second straight season. Not so fast, Cleveland. Even without Dobbins, the Ravens probably have the best offense that they have ever had since drafting quarterback Lamar Jackson. Tight end Mark Andrews is primed and ready, and the addition of wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. through free agency and Zay Flowers through the draft have electrified a Baltimore offense that is averaging 23.7 points per game.
While the Ravens offense will be a force for Cleveland to stop, the Browns offense will be a strong force against Baltimore, too. Cleveland is averaging 24.3 points per game, and its offensive line is particularly stout. With a rather unimpressive over/under projected for a 1 p.m. Sunday game here, look for these teams to hit the over. Both offenses will be able to do enough to surpass this low total.
The Pick: Over 40.5 (-115)
Cleveland Browns fans know better than anyone else that the Baltimore Ravens (who were also once the Browns) have dominated them in nearly every season since the Browns returned to existence. The Browns would love nothing more than to start returning the favor. What better way to do it than by building up their team in the trenches with a good offensive line and a strong defensive line backed by an overall good defense? That’s exactly what the Browns did. Cleveland’s pass rush has been lethal this season. The Browns rank first in average pressure time at 2.2 seconds, fifth in pressure percentage at 41 percent, and eighth in sack percentage at nine percent. Look for Cleveland’s defense to bring the heat on Sunday -- just like the Indianapolis defense did when the Colts pulled off the upset at Baltimore last week
The Pick: Cleveland Browns -3 (-105)
Best NFL Player Prop Bets for Ravens vs. Browns: Week 4
Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper is as consistent as a player can get at his position. He runs perfect routes and has great footwork and ball control. You name it, and Cooper does it. He will face a Ravens defense that is better at stopping the run than the pass. Thus, we can expect the Browns to attack with their passing game on Sunday, and Cooper will be a huge part of that. He caught passes for 90 yards in Week 2 and 116 in Week 3. A similar performance should be expected from Cooper in this divisional game on Sunday.
Best Same-Game Parlay Week 4 bets for Ravens vs. Browns: 4-Leg Parlay Pick (+425)
If the Cleveland Browns want to have success moving the ball on Sunday they will have to make it happen through the air. Although Colts running back Zack Moss managed to tear up the Ravens defense with 130 rushing yards last week, the Browns don’t have that type of running back, because Nick Chubb is out. Look for quarterback Deshaun Watson to carry the offensive load and lead this Browns team to the end zone at least a few times.
Leg-1 SGP Pick: Deshaun Watson 2+ Passing Touchdowns (+105)
The Ravens hope that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. can play on Sunday despite missing another practice Thursday with an ankle injury. If he can’t go, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will rely on rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers and tight end Mark Andrews to help carry the load on offense. The Browns defense is next to perfect when defending tight ends, as Cleveland has allowed the NFL’s fewest yards to opposing tight ends this season. The Browns also have yet to allow an opposing tight end to find the end zone. If anyone can change that script, it will be Baltimore tight end Mark Andrews. Look for Jackson to get pressured and use his legs to escape, but expect the Browns defense to be ready for the run with eyes on Jackson at all times – forcing him to throw. Jackson has just two total passing touchdowns this season, and both came at Cincinnati in Week 2. Look for Jackson to do it again in Week 4 at Cleveland.
Leg-2 SGP Pick: Lamar Jackson 2+ Passing Touchdonws (+180)
I’m doubling down on this total here and backing two talented quarterbacks in Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson to lead the way offensively in a matchup everyone expects to be a brutal defensive game. As mentioned earlier, both offenses are talented, and both quarterbacks have more weapons at their disposal than at any other time in their careers. They have done better with worse teams around them. So, with what they have now, I’m expecting a lot. Give me the over to close out our same-game parlay.
Leg-3 SGP Pick: Over 39.5 (-130)
