The Cleveland Browns led much of the conversation surrounding Week 3's NFL action when they sacked Bears rookie QB Justin Fields nine times. The Browns (2-1) look to make another statement on Sunday when they visit the Minnesota Vikings (1-2). The Vikings pulled things together for their first win of 2021 against Seattle last week, and could jump right back into the NFC North picture with a second-straight victory.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Cleveland is favored by one point in the latest Vikings vs. Browns odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is 51.5.

Week 4 NFL picks for Browns vs. Vikings

Before you tune in to Sunday's Vikings vs. Browns game, you need to see the picks from SportsLine's proven model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,900 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 4 of the 2021 season on an incredible 123-81 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 five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Vikings vs. Browns, the model likes Cleveland (-1) to cover the spread. Cleveland enters Sunday's showdown a little banged up, but should otherwise be considered the superior team. The big story for the Browns this week is the health of star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who was a full-participant in practice. He looked good in his 2021 debut last weekend, recording five receptions for 77 yards.

The Vikings have been particularly vulnerable against the pass this season, and when Beckham is at the top of his game, he's as dangerous as any receiver in the NFL. Minnesota has given up the sixth-most yards to receivers in the NFL this season and is tied for having allowed the second-most touchdowns. SportsLine's model likes Beckham to keep things going against Minnesota and record over 70 receiving yards.

Cleveland will likely lean on its rushing attack, but that should open things up for Beckham as the game goes on. That's why the model likes Cleveland (-1) to escape Minneapolis with a win and for the total to fall under 51.5 in over 50 percent of simulations.
