The Cleveland Browns opened as early 1.5-point underdogs against the Denver Broncos ahead of their Week 12 match-up, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under on the game is currently 36.5.

The Browns (7-3) are coming off of a 13-10 victory over the Steelers. It was a huge game for both teams, but the big story from Cleveland’s side of things was rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson taking over at quarterback. The Browns' defense had a great performance, but the Steelers started realizing in the second half that DTR was only throwing short passes. That allowed them to tie the game up at 10-10, but DTR came through with a game-winning drive that ended with a Dustin Hopkins field goal.

The Broncos (5-5) are coming off of a 21-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Denver is a weird team -- their offense still has not really clicked in the Russell Wilson era, and Denver's defense allowed a 70-spot to the Dolphins earlier this year. Over the past month, though, their defense has really kept them in games, and they've won four games in a row, including victories over the Chiefs and Bills.

The over/under for the game is 36.5.
