The Cleveland Browns will be in California to take on the Los Angeles Chargers for a Week 5 matchup.
Both of these football teams are coming off victories in week 4.
I have seen some books list the Chargers as a 1 point favorite and some have it as pick ’em. The total has stayed right around 49.5, but some have gotten to 50.
After a tough loss to the Chiefs in week 1, the Browns have since rattled off three wins in a row. They are playing how I thought they would right about now.
Cleveland covered as 1 point favorites over the Vikings on Sunday. The Browns left Minnesota with a 14-7 victory.
Sunday was by no means pretty against the Vikings, but they walked out of there with a win which is the most important thing. These are games they would not have won a few years back.
Baker Mayfield was not great, but he did enough on Sunday. He was 15/33 for 155 yards with no touchdown passes. He will look to be a little sharper on Sunday. The run game was led by Nick Chubb. He ran the ball 21 times for 100 yards.
The defense looked good for a third week in a row. Holding a good offense in Minnesota to just seven points is very impressive. They will face a very big challenge on Sunday when going against Justin Herbert and company. They will look to build off what they did in the Week 4 win.
Los Angeles Chargers
After a tough loss to the Cowboys in week 1, the Chargers have looked good the past two weeks, as they have beaten teams in their division.
Los Angeles covered as a 3 point favorite on Monday Night Football against the Raiders with a 28-14 victory. They started off a bit slow, but eventually found a rhythm as the game went on.
With the Raiders and Broncos both losing, there are now three teams in the AFC West with a 3-1 record.
Justin Hebert looked good on Monday. He was 28/38 for 222 yards and 3 touchdown passes. He will certainly be challenged when going against that tough Cleveland defense.
The defense did a very good job containing that explosive Las Vegas offense by only allowing 14 points. This unit will look to carry that success over when they face another tough offense in the Browns.

4* Free Week 5 NFL Betting Prediction: Los Angeles SU
The Chargers have been pretty good against the spread so far, but I am not going to lay it with them in this one even though it is only one point. I feel much better picking them on the money line here. I feel this game is going to be close. I do not see it being a blowout either way because I feel both teams are fairly even. The Browns offense was not great in week 4, but I do think it can be better in this game. Overall, I just feel the Chargers will do enough to get a close win. Give me Los Angeles here.
