With Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray playing through a right shoulder injury and Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb already out for Sunday’s game due to an injured calf, scoring is likely to be negatively affected.

The Cardinals vs. Browns over/under has already dropped from 53.5 to 48.5 (click here for live NFL Week 6 odds) at PointsBet, and based on the latest Cardinals vs. Browns weather forecast, this number could fall even more.

Let’s take a detailed look at the latest Cardinals vs. Browns weather forecast, including how windy Cleveland weather is affecting Sunday’s over/under total.

Cardinals vs. Browns NFL Weather Forecast

According to the National Weather Service, strong winds are expected in Cleveland for the Cardinals vs. Browns matchup.

Breezes of 17-21 mph are in the weather forecast at FirstEnergy Stadium, with gusts up to 33 mph.

However, the timing of the rain seems to be much more optimistic.

While there is a 40% chance of rain in Cleveland, that percentage diminishes to 20% on Sunday night.

The latest hourly forecast shows just a 3% chance throughout the game, so it’s unlikely we’ll see a wet Cardinals vs. Browns matchup.

No matter what happens precipitation-wise, bettors should be more focused on the wind as NFL games played in double-digit breezes have gone under the closing total 54.8% of the time since the start of the 2004 season.

Windy weather is likely behind the Cardinals vs. Browns over/under movement thus far, and don’t be surprised to see this total dropping even further as more bettors get wind (sorry, I’ll show myself out shortly for that “joke”) of Sunday’s Cleveland weather forecast.
