NFL MNF Betting Preview & Tips: Andrews can excel for Baltimore


NFL expert Tom Selwyn (@Tom_Selwyn) shares his expert opinion on the best bets available from Monday night's action from Week 14.

Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns | Tuesday 15th December 2020, 01:15 | Sky Sports

This could be one of the best games remaining on this year’s schedule and is certainly a big one when it comes to the AFC playoffs. A win for Cleveland could pretty much guarantee they reach the playoffs for the first time since 2002 – the longest current drought in the league – while also putting the rival Ravens in deep trouble.

Both of these teams absolutely love to run the ball, sitting at 1st and 3rd in the league, and you can be sure that the defensive coordinators know this too. Whether they’ll be able to is another thing, but it will definitely be their first priority and there should be decent opportunities for passes for both teams.

I really like Ravens TE Mark Andrews to be the one to take advantage in this game. Prior to going on the Covid list Andrews had put together a couple of solid performances, posting 12 catches (on 16 targets) for 157 yards and 1 TD in games against the Patriots and the Titans. The Browns have been pretty generous to TEs this year, sitting in the bottom 7 for receptions, targets, yards and TDs given up to that position.

I’m going to go for the Over 43.5 Receiving Yards due to the better price, but I couldn’t put anyone off the 3.5 receptions line either. Both teams will be trying to run as I said earlier and this should draw in the LBs, allowing Andrews space over the middle, especially on play-action. He should have a nice day in what will hopefully be an excellent game.

Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns – Mark Andrews Over 43.5 Receiving Yards (5/6 Bet365)
