Cowboys Vs Browns Odds & Final Score PredictionNoah Williams
The Dallas Cowboys are on a 6 game winning streak which contributes to the reason why the Week 9 NFL odds make them the biggest road favorite when they travel to face the winless Cleveland Browns. This NFC East and AFC North fight will kickoff at 1 PM et on Sunday, November 6th at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland Ohio.
I can say the Browns are at least a little (but not much) better than their winless 0-8 record this year against the spread where they covered the NFL point spread twice against 6 no covers on points. The Cowboys are equally solid no matter how you look at it with a 6-1 record both straight up and ATS.

Bet on Dallas (-7) Because…
Dez Bryant is back for the Cowboys is a good place to start. There is plenty to support Dallas beating Cleveland by more than 7, and it all begins with that dominating offensive line making everything possible. It is unheard of to have 2 NFL rookies like QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott leading an NFL team to be 1 of 2 teams left with a single loss, but hear this.
The Cowboys are able to impose their will on opponents with that moving brick wall they call an offensive line leading the NFL in rushing with individual leader Elliott leading the charge. They are 4th in total offense which will improve with WR Bryant back to improve on their 19th rank in pass offense.
Bet on Cleveland (+7) Because…
This could be a trap game that looks too good, and an arsenal of offensive aerial potential is something the Cleveland Browns have with WR Terrelle Pryor, TE Gary Barnidge and the expected return of their best WR Corey Coleman this week. Whether the QB is Cody Kessler or Josh McCown is not sure with both being listed as starters thus far, but I would prefer McCown with a better gun if it comes down to it.
Another point is that the Cowboys can be penetrated on defense especially passing where they rank 18th and safety Barry Church will be out this week. Offensively, the Browns are ranked 15th overall and 10th in rushing if they can keep it out of Dallas’ hands.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
This Week 9 NFL betting odds have dipped from Dallas being an 8 to a 7 point betting favorite, and part of that is the fear about this being a trap game. WAKE UP! It is NOT!
If you want to look further into statistics or trends, I have plenty but only so many characters to keep you interested and awake. The last 14 games played on grass (which this will be Sparky), the Cowboys are 12-2 ATS, while the Browns are 2-6 the last 8 games on grass which is their home field. There is NO advantage there, and ATS they are 1-8 versus winning record teams.
Cleveland has the WORST rank in total defense and 2nd worst in rushing defense where the Dallas Cowboys lead the entire NFL. The only trap in this game is if you listen to the hate or conspiracy theorists trying to prevent you from making straight Week 9 NFL odds betting cash homey.
