The Cleveland Browns opened as early 5-point underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers ahead of their Week 6 match-up, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under on the game is currently 42.

The Browns (2-2) are coming off of their bye week, but prior to that, they suffered a 28-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens — the same Ravens who just lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5 by a score of 17-10. After the bye would normally be a time to breathe a sigh of relief that your team is getting healthy, but it’s hard to say that about Cleveland. Their offensive line was a bit banged up heading into the bye, and we truly don’t know the severity or impact of Deshaun Watson’s shoulder injury until we see him step into in-game action. Unfortunately, he’ll have to do so against (in my estimation) the best team in football.

The 49ers (5-0) are coming off of a 42-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It was supposed to be the game of the week for Week 5, but instead it turned into a slaughter, as the 49ers out-gained the Cowboys 421-197 in yardage and 37 minutes to 23 minutes in time of possession. The 49ers are a complete team, but Cleveland will have to hope their defense can play like it did in the first three weeks to let this one go down to the wire.

The over/under for the game is 42.
