Browns vs. Raiders odds, spread, line: 2021 NFL picks, Week 15 prediction from top model on 132-96 run

The Cleveland Browns (7-6) will host the Las Vegas Raiders (6-7) on Monday contest after the Browns’ COVID-19 outbreak necessitated rescheduling the game from Saturday. The Raiders have been in a slump lately and were blown out of the water in their Week 14 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Cleveland pulled out a 24-22 win against the division-rival Baltimore Ravens last week, but will now be without quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum due to COVID-19. Nick Mullens will start for the Browns.

Kickoff from FirstEnergy Stadium is set for 5 p.m. ET. Las Vegas is favored by 1.5 points in the latest Browns vs. Raiders odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is 40.5.

Why the Raiders can cover

Las Vegas has had its fair share of difficulties during the year, but there have been a few players who have been consistent. Receiver Hunter Renfrow is one of them and is the leading pass-catcher for the Raiders. The Clemson product is averaging a team-high 67.5 receiving yards per game and has snagged 40 passes for a first down.

Renfrow is tied for fifth in the NFL with 86 receptions for 877 yards and five scores. The 2019 fifth-round pick has logged three straight games with more than 100 receiving yards. In last week’s loss to Kansas City Chiefs, Renfrow had 13 grabs for 117 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Derek Carr and Renfrow have built a strong rapport and will look to continue that against the shorthanded Cleveland Browns.

Why the Browns can cover

Cleveland has one of the best ground games in the league. The Browns are currently fourth in rushing yards per game (143.5) with 17 rushing touchdowns. The Browns have rushed for more than 150 yards in eight games this year. From Weeks 3-5, Cleveland rushed for 629 total yards with five rushing scores. 

The Browns also have one of the top defenses in the NFL. They are fourth in yards allowed per game (321.2) and have given up fewer than 20 points in seven games this year. Cleveland’s defense has been stout in its past two games, holding the usually high-powered Baltimore Ravens offense to an average of 19 points per game in two meetings.
