The Cleveland Browns have been one of the NFL’s biggest surprises at 5-4 and they have a real chance to make the playoffs according to NFL betting experts.
Betting NFL statistics show that the Browns are a super 7-2 against the NFL betting pointspread so far this season. Cleveland wasn’t supposed to do anything this year and they have shocked many gamblers that are betting NFL games each week. The Browns have a decent remaining schedule and according to experts that look at betting NFL games each week, the Browns can make the playoffs. Looking at the schedule the betting NFL experts see that the Browns face very few winning teams on the remainder of their schedule.
The key according to those that are betting NFL games every week is the play of quarterback Derek Anderson. He was not supposed to be the starter this season but has taken the job and run with it. He has a strong arm and although he sometimes forces the ball, his receivers more often than not bail him out. NFL betting experts see that he has received excellent supporting play around him from tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. and receiver Braylon Edwards.
Those experts betting NFL games also believe that the Browns have made major strides on the offensive line. A major reason why is #3 overall draft pick Joe Thomas who may be playing left tackle for the next decade. Those experts betting NFL games believe the overall offensive line has benefited with the addition of Thomas. Another key for the Browns according to betting NFL experts is the play of running back Jamal Lewis. He was thought to be completely washed up with Baltimore but he has given Cleveland the tough yards they need to keep drives alive.
As you look at betting NFL games down the stretch you will want to keep an eye on the Cleveland Browns. The question mark will be the coaching as Romeo Crennel is a below average head coach according to NFL betting experts. He could easily ruin the Browns’ chances of making the playoffs despite the favorable schedule. Keep that in mind as you consider whether or not to get involved in betting NFL games involving Cleveland late in the season.
