It should be an interesting online NFL betting game as both teams have quarterback battles going on. The Lions are deciding between Daunte Culpepper and rookie Matthew Stafford while the Browns are trying to decide between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson.
Online NFL betting has the Browns a 3 point favorite with a total of 36.5. The Lions are coming off a win last week while the Browns are coming off a loss. Detroit was able to win in online NFL betting thanks to third-string quarterback Drew Stanton who finished as the team’s leading rusher with 59 yards. “Drew did a great job with his feet; a lot of people in Michigan have seen Drew play football and they know, like I mentioned in training camp, it’s hard to get an evaluation of him because in training camp and practices you really don’t scramble around and he’s got a great asset with his legs. He used it, he got us in field goal range and that was able to win the game.” Head coach Jim Schwartz said.
Matthew Stafford was 7-of-14 for 114 yards with one touchdown and one interception as online NFL betting statistics indicated. “Obviously Matt made a bad decision (on the interception)… The thing I liked about it is: he bounced back with an 80-yard touchdown drive and took a hit which you have to do in the NFL and made a perfect pass and Derrick made a great catch. I liked that bounce back.”
NFL betting tells us that the Browns have still not decided upon their starting quarterback. "I'm going to go through the complete process and let it play out," head coach Eric Mangini said. "Offensively there were some positive things we did (in Green Bay) but we need to score points and protect the ball first and foremost. I did like some things Brady (Quinn) did in there. Derek (Anderson) didn't get as many reps. We'll try to balance that off this week. We're looking at the whole body of work."
Online NFL betting indicates that the Browns quarterback rotation will obviously feature Anderson and Quinn with Brett Ratliff and rookie Richard Bartel getting late reps. The Lions on Saturday will have Culpepper, Stafford and Stanton in their online NFL betting quarterback rotation.
