The Kansas City Chiefs enter into Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns as heavy (8.5 to 10-point) favorites, but even though such a big spread can be hard to cover on the road, most national analysts are calling for a double-digit Chiefs win this week anyway.
The Browns (2-5-1) face plenty of unknowns at the moment after firing head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley earlier this week, and most analysts aren’t confident the team is in the right position to upset the Chiefs on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Kansas City (7-1) has been flying high offensively all season, hitting the 30-point mark in all but one game. The prognosticators think that trend will continue this week.
Is there a chance this could be a trap game for the Chiefs? One analyst raises the possibility, picking this game to be closer than expected, but the collection of predictions we’ve rounded up is almost unanimous in their thought that it could be a long day for the Browns.
Here’s a roundup of what the national analysts are saying about this game.
