According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Cleveland Browns are 3.5 point underdogs against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Here is what the national media is saying about the Week 13 game between the Browns and Rams:
CBS Sports (Pete Prisco) - Rams 21, Browns 16
The Browns are playing a second straight on the road, but they stayed over on the West Coast. They didn’t look good in losing to Broncos last week. The Rams have won two straight games out of their bye to get into the playoff race. I look for Matthew Stafford to outplay Dorian Thompson-Robinson in his return to his college city. Rams take it.

Sporting News (Vinnie Iyer) - Rams 23, Browns 20
UCLA product Dorian Thompson-Robinson will hope to be healthy as a rookie starting QB to help Cleveland’s suddenly precarious playoff hopes. The running game and defense, along with plenty of home fan support, will keep the Browns in it. The issue will be the Rams’ pass defense, as Aaron Donald will be game to show his multiple DPOY punch with Myles Garrett in the house.

Our trouble with picking Cleveland continues ahead of a West Coast trip to Los Angeles. Injuries to quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and defensive end Myles Garrett are a problem, and the Rams receiver Cooper Kupp should be healthier this week. Cleveland has failed to score 14 points in its last two games, and Los Angeles is fine with getting into a defensive battle. Stick with the home team by a field goal.
