T.M. Selection: Cleveland Browns (8* MONEY-MAKER).
If you're betting on this game, then you already know the strengths and weaknesses of each of these high-profile teams, things known even by casual NFL fans. The Browns have gone through some adversity with injuries to key players (OBJ) and other COVID related stuff this year. The Browns have a good offense, that revolves around the dominant run game of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Baker Mayfield has been great in limiting mistakes this season. The Chiefs once again eclipsed their season win total (for an eighth straight year), but they've shown signs of weakness already this season, most famously their meltdown at home to the Raiders. The Browns are a lot better than Las Vegas. Andy Reid has had extra time off to prepare, but I think the home side's defense will have its hands full here this afternoon. I expect a competitive battle until the end, so I'm grabbing the points!
T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
