The Cleveland Browns play against the Chicago Bears in Week 3 of the 2021 NFL Season. Here’s a look at the betting info and a prediction for the game.
The Cleveland Browns are fresh off their first win of the season as they got it done against the Houston Texans. They didn’t win as easily as expected but they still had a 10-point victory, sending the Texans home following a 31-21 win.
It was also a win for the fans as tailgating was back in full force for the home opener. The Muni Lot, which is one of the most popular tailgating destinations in the US, saw fans lining up the night before.
They were able to leave satisfied since Cleveland is now 1-1 but the team is focused on going 2-1. In order to do that, they have to knock off the Chicago Bears who are coming in with a record of 1-1 after narrowly beating Cincinnati in Week 2.
Here we look ahead to the game with the odds and a Week 3 prediction.
Browns vs. Bears Odds Week 3
The Week 3 betting odds on WynnBET have the Browns once again favored, although not by 13 as they were for the Houston game. Instead, this time it’s a 7.5 spread with an over/under of 46.5. Right now, the moneyline is sitting at -350 for Cleveland and +265 for Chicago.
Browns vs. Bears Prediction Week 3
Cleveland has been moving the chains with ease, in large part thanks to the insane precision that Baker Mayfield has been displaying. He’s completed over 81 percent of his passes in the first two games and is over 10 yards per attempt as well.
Chicago held Joe Burrow to 207 yards through the air but Matthew Stafford showed in the week prior that they can be susceptible to giving up chunks of yardage. Look for Mayfield to connect on a couple of deep balls but overall, this is going to be a slugfest since Chicago still has a strong defense.
In the end, the Browns secure the win and move to 2-1 with a 23-16 win.
