Of the 59 BettingPros experts that have weighed in on the Divisional Round matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs, 56% are siding with the underdog Browns.

Betting Impact:

The Browns are +10 point road underdogs versus the Chiefs, per BettingPros consensus odds. The Browns this week are what is known as a "public dog", which means the majority of the betting public is siding with them as underdogs. "Public dog" has its own term considering how rare it is for the betting public to side with an underdog, as most typically the favorites get more of the betting action. Cleveland is the 10th team since 1997 to win 11 or more games in the regular season and then be a double-digit underdog in the playoffs. The previous nine teams went 8-1 ATS in their playoff game. In addition to the spread, 63% are siding with the over of 57 while 94% like Kansas City’s moneyline odds of -500.
