The worst weather of NFL Week 14 saved itself for tonight’s Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns Monday Night Football game.
Windy conditions are expected tonight at FirstEnergy Stadium and, more importantly, bettors are taking notice.
Let’s look at the detailed Ravens vs. Browns weather forecast and how it’s moving Monday Night Football odds.
Ravens vs. Browns Weather Forecast
The National Weather Service is calling for winds between 11-18 mph in Cleveland on Monday night, and Sports Insights’ weather data shows the strongest of these breezes blowing around kickoff for Ravens vs. Browns.
So why is this forecast so important for NFL bettors?
According to our High Winds PRO System, unders are 467-363-8 (56%) since 2003 in games played in double-digit breezes.
Understandably, wind makes it harder to throw accurate passes, especially downfield throws that result in quick scoring.
In addition, kickers struggled to connect on field goals and extra points in windy conditions, hampering scoring even further.
This has unsurprisingly convinced bettors to drive down the Ravens vs. Browns total from an opener of 47 down to the current number of 45.5 (see the latest Monday Night Football odds here).
PRO Projections Pick: Under 45.5
