Cleveland Browns Vs. San Francisco 49ers NFL Week 5 Betting Picks And Odds
Last week the Cleveland Browns might have pulled the biggest win in the Baker Mayfield era.
Cleveland will be on primetime for the third time this season as they visit the only undefeated team remaining in the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers.

The oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag currently have San Francisco -3.5 for Monday’s game. The betting line opened with the Niners -3.
I can’t see any movement from now until the kickoff, mostly because these two teams look like even squads.
Cleveland Browns Vs. San Francisco 49ers Betting Preview
The Browns are coming off their best win of the season. Their 40-25 victory in Baltimore was a statement win for Cleveland and one we might remember as the turning point for this team.
Of course, for that to happen, they need to keep winning. Before the season, the oddsmakers had the Browns ranked a lot better than the Niners, and there’s a reason for it.
We know how much talent the Browns have on both sides of the ball, but the key on offense is to protect QB Baker Mayfield.
Mayfield The First Three Weeks Of The Season
During the first three weeks of the season, Mayfield got sacked 11 times, and Cleveland’s offense looked shaky. Last week he was sacked only once, and the team won by 15 on the road.
RB Nick Chubb benefits from a reliable offensive line performance as well. Chubb is fourth in rushing yards in the NFL with 398 this season.
Last week he exploded for 165 rushing yards and three touchdowns against Baltimore in the best game of his young career. The Cleveland defense also has a good matchup on Monday night.
The Browns have a talented unit that will be looking to force plenty of takeaways. San Francisco has turned the ball over eight times in only three games played this year.
What’s The San Francisco 49ers’ Edge Over The Browns?
The 49ers are coming off a bye week that helped the team rest early in the season. San Francisco is the only unbeaten team in the NFC and had a lot of time to prepare for the Browns. The goal, of course, is to stay undefeated.
San Francisco has a quiet but outstanding offense in 2019. The Niners are second in the NFL, averaging 175.0 rushing yards per game, and third in points scored with 32.0 per game.
The most complicated asset to stop about this offense is their running back committee. Between Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert, the Niners had controlled the time of possession while dominating opponents.
It’s time to give these two running backs some credit. On the other side, the 49ers have the third-best total defense in the league, only behind the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.
Sure, beating teams like the Buccaneers, Bengals, and the Steelers might not be a great resume to brag about, but San Francisco used to drop those games in the past.
Browns vs. 49ers Monday Night Football Pick
It’s fair to ask if any of these two teams are legit. There was a lot of hype around the Browns before the season, and we finally got to see it on display last week. Consistency becomes the goal now.
San Francisco is 3-0, but none of their wins were against good teams. Not many have faith in this squad to stay on the winning side for the rest of the season.
The Only Undefeated Team In The NFC
The 49ers are the only undefeated team in the NFC, and somehow, they are not the favorites to win the NFC West division. That should tell us something.
It should be a close contest between two franchises that are trying to find their identity this season. Both are talented, but there is nothing that says with security that one is above the other.
Taking the points is the smart move here. The game might be decided by a field goal, and that half of a point on the road team has a lot of value. Bet Browns +3.5.
