Browns vs. Falcons | Current NFL odds, spreads, betting lines, and predictions

  • Spread: Browns -6 (-110)
  • Moneyline: Browns -240, Falcons +195
  • Total: 36 (Over -110, Under -110)

The Browns come into this game unbeaten but only 1-1 against the spread after failing to cover as home favorites last week against the New York Giants. Cleveland’s average margin of victory this preseason is seven points. The Falcons, meanwhile, have had a very rough 2021 preseason. They are 0-2 straight up and against the spread, losing both games by 20 points.

As for the game total, the Browns have gone under in both of their games this preseason. Yet, the Falcons have split their first two games. Thanks to a leaky defense that allowed 37 points in Miami last week, the Falcons went over the total after going well under in their preseason opener against Tennessee.

Browns vs. Falcons series history

The Browns and the Falcons have faced each other 15 times in the regular season dating back to 1966. The Browns hold a commanding 12-3 series lead all-time.

  • Browns 24-16 Falcons | 2002
  • Browns 17-13 Falcons | 2006
  • Falcons 20-10 Browns | 2010
  • Browns 26-24 Falcons | 2014
  • Browns 28-16 Falcons | 2018

Since the turn of the century, the Browns have won four of their five meetings with the Falcons, though their average margin of victory is just 6.5 points. The Browns also had a dominating stretch of six consecutive wins over Atlanta from 1976 to 1990.

In their last meeting, a Matt Ryan touchdown pass to Julio Jones put Atlanta on top 10-7 in the second quarter. However, a late first-half drive capped by a Baker Mayfield to Nick Chubb touchdown pass had the Browns leading 14-10. They would not relinquish that lead, as Chubb added a 92-yard touchdown run while accumulating over 200 yards from scrimmage in Cleveland’s 28-16 victory in 2018.
