The few people who bet on NFL and still care about the Cleveland Browns may have noticed that sometimes-starting QB DeShone Kizer shone in Sunday’s game against the Lions, passing 21-of-37 for 233 yards and running for another 54 yards on 10 carries, and combining for two TDs. it was possibly the rookies best performance in his short professional career, and while it wasn’t enough to either pick up the outright win or cover the spread, nor would a similar showing be enough against the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was still good enough to earn Kizer a nom for rookie of the week.

The coldest ticket in town
We all know there won’t any NFL playoff bets placed on Cleveland this season, meaning that each passing week there are fewer chances to go see, like you would go see a so-bad-it’s-good-flick, the Browns. That’s what it’s come down to; the Browns are the Plan 9 From Outer Space of the NFL. The good news is it has become a bargain to gain entrance into LastEnergy Stadium. Here are, as a matter of fact, 10 more expensive things. Personally, we’d borrow the extra dollar and go for the six-pack of Buds. The Browns have lost 10 straight regular season games as well as 12 of their last 13 at home. It could be argued, though, that they play less bad in Cleveland than elsewhere. The Browns have lost by just three points in three of four home games, and have allowed just 14.5 points per game in their last two at their own turf. Therefore, it’s no surprise to people who bet on NFL that the only two times they have covered this season were at home.
Kick them when they’re Brown
Safety Tashaun Gipson, formerly of the Browns and currently of the Jags, is an angry, angry young man. Like Sideshow Raheem. “I truly hope that we hang 40 on them,” Gibson said. “Their offense probably shouldn’t score against our defense and I’m excited. That’s the true thing.” he’s not just blowing hot air, either. The Jags have held the opposition to single-digit point totals five times this season, and lead the league with 14.9 points allowed per game allowed. Jacksonville has, moreover, allowed just 8.0 points per game during its current 3-0 SU streak, and has beaten opponents by a 57-9 margin in two consecutive straight-up and ATS road wins. “You look back and I feel bad for those guys because, like I said, it’s nothing that they can do. They just go out there and play,” Gibson added. “It’s the guys above them who make these decisions and, you know, it’s unfortunate. We’ve seen it time and time again, the opportunity that’s slipped by them.” People who bet on NFL should note that the total has gone under in four of the Jags’ last five, including the last three straight, but over in four of the Jaguars’ last six when the total is fewer than 40 points.
