(OddsShark.com) — A pair of Super Bowl longshots coming off big wins in Week 2 go head-to-head on Sunday as the Oakland Raiders travel to Cleveland to face the Browns as early 3.5-point underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
The Raiders, who sport 100/1 odds to win Super Bowl 50, bounced back from a 33-13 pounding by the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1 to post a 37-33 victory over the Baltimore Ravens last week, picking up the win as 6-point home underdogs.
The victory also ended Oakland’s two-game losing streak, both straight up and against the spread, while pushing the point total OVER for a fifth straight game.
Cleveland enters Sunday afternoon’s Raiders vs. Browns betting matchup at FirstEnergy Stadium as a diminished 150/1 Super Bowl longshot despite a solid 28-14 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 2.
The win ended Cleveland’s six-game SU losing streak, 3-3 ATS, while improving the OVER to 2-0 for their games this season following a 1-11 run.
The Browns are undefeated SU in their past three home meetings with Oakland, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, and 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine matchups.
The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to buoy their rapidly sinking Super Bowl odds when they visit the surging New York Jets as 2.5-point underdogs this week. The Eagles opened the season as a strong 17/2 Super Bowl bet, but have plummeted to 22/1 after losing outright while favored to both the Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys.
Conversely, the defensively-minded Jets have allowed just 17 total points in SU wins over Cleveland and the Indianapolis Colts. However, history favors the Eagles, who have averaged almost 30 points per game in six straight SU wins over New York, going 5-1 ATS.
The Colts look for their first win of the 2015 campaign when they visit the Titans as soft 4.5-point chalk. The Colts have played sloppy ball in a pair of SU and ATS losses to the Jets and Buffalo Bills, committing eight turnovers in their first two outings, but are 7-0 SU and ATS in their last seven versus Tennessee.
The Titans showed promise with their stunning 42-14 Week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but failed to contain quarterback Johnny Manziel in a disappointing loss to the Browns, dropping them to 1-11 SU in their last 12, 3-9 ATS.
In other NFL Week 3 betting action, the Ravens host the Bengals this weekend as 2.5-point chalk, while the Bills visit the Miami Dolphins as 2.5-point underdogs, and the Falcons take on the injury-riddled Cowboys as 1.5-point favorites.
