Week 4 NFL picks for Falcons vs. Browns

Before tuning into Sunday's Browns vs. Falcons game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Week 4 of the 2022 NFL season on an incredible 139-103 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Falcons vs. Browns, the model is backing Cleveland to cover the spread as a one-point favorite. Both teams have established that they want to run the ball to control the tempo, but the Browns appear to be better equipped to win a physical matchup thanks to quality run defense and a better game-manager at quarterback.

The Browns rank seventh in rushing yards allowed (251) and gave up just 3.6 yards per carry to Christian McCaffrey and Najee Harris in their two victories. Meanwhile, Jacoby Brissett has completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 596 yards and four touchdowns with just one interception and hasn't fumbled yet in 2022.

By contrast, Marcus Mariota has thrown three interceptions and fumbled five times for the Falcons. Atlanta has turned the ball over at least twice in every game and the model is predicting at least two more turnovers on Sunday. It's also predicting the Browns will run for 165 yards on average to help them cover the spread in well over 50 percent of simulations. You may be able to stream the game here.
