Sunday’s divisional showdown between the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens is one of the biggest games of the season.

Customers need only to be physically present in one of those states to cast a wager.

Heavy’s Browns-Ravens Preview
Bri and Meredith from the Cleveland sports podcast “That’s What B Said” joined Heavy on Saturday night to preview the Browns-Ravens game and discuss their thoughts on the Browns’ playoff chances. The conversation aired live on the Heavy on Browns Facebook page, on Twitter, and on Heavy’s YouTube channel. You can watch the entire show in the video above.
Meredith said she recommended fans place their $5 wager on the Browns, who need a victory in order to keep open a viable path to the playoffs. Bri said she was taking a slightly different approach.
Here’s how she laid it out:
I don’t bet much, but I have bet before. I’m a big Vegas girl, if you didn’t know that. But my dad had always taught me you always want to bet opposite of the team you’re rooting for, because then if your team loses, you win money. If your team wins, you’re happy. Right? But in this case, it’s five dollars. I don’t know if I’d be that mad about losing five dollars if I placed it on the Browns. But I also feel like you guys both picked the Browns, so I don’t want to jinx the Browns. Do I pick the opposite? … OK, I’ll pick the opposite. I’m going to pick the Ravens. Because then if I lose five dollars, I’m still not mad, and then if the Browns win, I’m happy.
The Browns-Ravens game kicks off Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern time at Cleveland’s FirstEnergy Stadium. Though the special promo is the only way to get those 30-1 odds on either team, there are plenty of other Browns-Ravens items you can bet on at FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Browns are favored by 2.5 points, and Cleveland is a -156 money line favorite, meaning that if you’re betting the money line outside of the special promo, a $100 wager will earn you a return of $56. Baltimore is a +132 money line underdog, meaning a $100 bet will get you a return of $132.
FanDuel Sportsbook has a handful of other Browns-Ravens betting options, including wagers on who will score touchdowns; alternate point spreads; correct score wagers; player props, and more.
