Las Vegas (6-7) at Cleveland (7-6)

Kickoff: Monday, Dec. 20 at 5 p.m. ET

Spread: Browns -3


Three Things to Watch

1. Who is available?
The Browns’ roster issues due to a COVID-19 outbreak are the main reason this game was moved. As of Friday afternoon when the schedule change was announced, Cleveland had 20 members of the active roster on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, and head coach Kevin Stefanski also tested positive.


Final Analysis

Between the Browns’ COVID issues and the scheduling change, there is so much uncertainty now surrounding this game. Not surprisingly, the line totally shifted from Cleveland earlier in the week but it could go back to the home team now that the game itself has been pushed back.


Money line

The BROWNS (-160) are worth playing, even with the team down a handful of key players due to the reserve/COVID list. However, tread lightly as the odds have been steamed up from -115 to -160. QB Case Keenum started a game against the Denver Broncos at home earlier this season, and the Browns picked up a 17-14 win.


Against the spread

The BROWNS -2.5 (-133) are now at a better price than the moneyline, and you’ll get some insurance here. If you want to hammer this side and skip the moneyline, go for it.


Raiders vs. Browns betting trends

The Raiders have only won one game in their last six, both outright and against the spread (ATS) — that game being the overtime win against Dallas in Week 12. That’s also the only game the Raiders have scored more than 16 points in the same six-game stretch.


Raiders vs. Browns prediction

The score here will depend on how the Browns’ offense performs on the day. But this is too big of a game for a wilting Raiders team just trying to crawl to the end of the season on damage control. Myles Garrett and Co.


The best bets for Monday’s AFC matchup

The Las Vegas Raiders and Cleveland Browns had their Week 15 game moved from Saturday to Monday due to an unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, and the Browns were decimated by the virus.

Line movement

This line has seen plenty of movement. It reopened at Browns -5.5 last Tuesday, rose to Browns -6.5 on Sunday, fell to Browns -6 on Tuesday and then finally flipped to Raiders -1 by Wednesday due to multiple positive tests. From there it began to rise in favor of Vegas, as it climbed to Raiders -4 on Thursday.


Player props

Derek Carr passing yards: Over 241.5 (-115). The Raiders hate running the ball. They are tied for having the second-worst run offense in the league with an average of 84.6 rushing yards recorded per game. Carr is fourth in the NFL in passing yards although you never know what you are going to get week in, week out.
