The Chargers are coming off of a 34-24 win over the Texans, while the Browns lost to the Falcons 23-20 in Week 4
Cleveland is now 2-2 straight up and ATS on the year, while the 2-2 Chargers are one of six teams that are 3-1 ATS so far.
It was this time last year that the Chargers and Browns played a massively high-scoring game, with LA coming out the winner 47-42. LA has won three straight against the Browns, but the Chargers have covered in the past two.
The Chargers are tops in the NFL in terms of passing yards at 307.3 per game, but just 32nd in rushing yards, (64.5), so you can see where that offense leans.
Justin Herbert already has 1,250 yards passing and nine touchdowns on the season.
Cleveland had 403 total yards in their loss to the Falcons but allowed 6.1 yards per play. Atlanta also had 202 yards rushing, although no one had more than 84 yards on the ground, which could open things up for a Chargers run game that hasn't put up big numbers yet.
Nick Chubb also had his third 100+ yard rushing game with 118 and a touchdown on 19 carries, and you can expect the Browns to continue feeding Chubb the ball, not just this week, for the foreseeable future until Deshaun Watson returns after his 11-game suspension.
It's hard to go against the better QB in this matchup, so the lean should be Chargers, with a possible consideration to the over, given that both are a combined 5-3 this season there.
Chubb could be in line for another big game, but Herbert and the Chargers have the ability to put this thing away with their passing game.
