Football Betting Odds Anderson Replaces Quinn as Cleveland QB

Football betting odds at the sportsbook probably won’t change much but the Cleveland Browns will have a different starting quarterback this Sunday as they host the Cincinnati Bengals.

Derek Anderson will replace Brady Quinn as the starting quarterback.  The Browns are still underdogs in football lines this week.

Football betting odds at the sports book favor the Bengals by 5.5 points on the road in Cleveland.  The Bengals are off to a nice 2-1 start while the Browns are 0-3 in football betting odds.  Cleveland is hoping that Anderson can jump start a poor offense.  Just two years ago Anderson went to the Pro Bowl but he played poorly last year as Cleveland struggled in football betting odds.  Quinn got some playing time last year in football betting odds and this season he was named the starter.  Cleveland has struggled this season in football betting odds and head coach Eric Mangini thought a change was needed. "I'm excited about the opportunity," Anderson said. "We're all competitors, we all want to play. I'm ready to go."

Mangini has made a mess of the Cleveland quarterback situation as he waited until days before the football betting odds season began to name a starting quarterback.  Now just three games into the football lines season, he is changing things around. Going back to Anderson may not be the best move in football betting odds.  Since 2008 in football lines, Anderson has the worst passer rating in the league.  The big problem with Anderson in football betting odds is that he turns the ball over.  Last week he did move the team but threw three interceptions. That has been his problem going all the way back to college so it is not a surprise to those that follow football lines.  The Browns seem to have overlooked Anderson’s tendency to turn the ball over though.

Cleveland has been outscored this season 95-29 and have scored only one touchdown in their past nine games going back to last season in football betting odds at the sportsbook.  Mangini doesn’t seem to have any idea of what to do other than to switch quarterbacks. "I'm not saying it's all Brady," Mangini said. "Derek did some things that were positive and that's what it's based on."  What Mangini saw is definitely in question since Anderson threw three interceptions in the football betting odds loss last week.
