The odds in the Houston Texans-Cleveland Browns game are on the move, specifically the over/under total. Sometimes it takes a little work to determine what’s behind odds movement, but other times it smacks you right in the face.
And when it comes to today’s Texans vs. Browns total, the weather forecast in Cleveland is clearly the driving force.
Let’s take a look.
Texans vs. Browns Weather Forecast
According to the National Weather Service, there is a 100% chance of rain in Cleveland on Sunday, with expected winds of 21 to 29 mph and gusts that could reach up to 60 mph (!).
Since the start of the 2003 season, 55.4% of NFL games played in winds of at least 10 mph have gone under the closing total, and as we noted above, today’s Texans vs. Browns game easily crosses that threshold.
Sports Insights’ hourly weather data shows the strong cross-breezes increasing as the game progresses as well, so don’t expect the conditions to get any better for scoring.
It’s not often that a weather forecast describes conditions as “dangerously windy,” but that’s exactly what we should expect for Texans vs. Browns.
The betting market has certainly taken notice as this over/under has plummeted from an opener of 54 to 45,5 (click here for live NFL odds).
And as more bettors become aware of Texans vs. Browns weather forecast, don’t be surprised to see this total fall even further.
