Even the Cleveland Browns came into the season having a ton of hype theyve so far failed to live up to. They did however receive a win against their fierce competitors the Baltimore Ravens. Caring for business in the branch is the perfect method. They have to travel west to face their Bye Week, a 49ers team thats coming from.
When the Browns take on the 49ers (8:15 P.M ET, ESPN) it will be quite different compared to their last match, since the 49ers playbook is a whole lot more diverse than what the Ravens need to offer you. There is also the question of the 49ers pass rush that continues to improve. The Browns have the ability to overcome against the 49ers but this is a place for them. This Week 5 game is their third party on the street in the last four months.
The 49ers have yet to play their football but remain undefeated. That is the indication of a quality team and their win against Pittsburgh was the type of game that they should have lost. While they did make blessed that James Connor fumbled to put them to win, they still got the task done. There is a ton of reason, if you win a game where you flip the ball over five times. Kyle Shanahan will understand they got away with one and luckily that game happened before the Bye Week. Anticipate the 49ers to come extremely focused in this one.
This line opened at -3 San Francisco and sits throughout the board. The Total opened 47.5 and has moved slightly to 46.5. The publics confidence in San Francisco makes sense coming off coupled with the Browns shortage of consistency this season. The Browns are traveling west to get their third road game of this year in Week 5.

San Francisco 49ers -4 (-105) in Heritage
While I dont like laying 4 points with San Francisco, I can not shoot the Browns here because of their coach. Freddy Kitchens versus Kyle Shanahan is a training mismatch. Shanahan has shown he is among the most gifted offensive play-callers from the NFL. They moved from Super Bowl runners up to anything theyre now with much of the roster on crime when he abandoned the Falcons. We arent even sure Kitchens is a head trainer that is competent. The 49ers are coming off and the Browns are playing a different road game this time out west. For each of those reasons, my selection is that the at home over the Browns.
