"According to ESPN’s David Purdum, two-thirds of the bets on the Browns’ win total at Caesars Palace have been on the over of six or more wins. Jay Rood, MGM’s vice president of race and sports, says the Browns have garnered more bets to win the Super Bowl than the Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars."
With the amount of improvements the Browns made in the off-season, the amount of people betting on the Browns is absolutely insane. Although the Browns have odds that would pay off big time, there should not be that much confidence in what Cleveland can do this season.
With most of the roster already set in stone, there are still a decent amount of players that can win jobs with solid performances on Thursday night against the Lions. Here’s a look at three of the players that could earn the stripe on their helmet with a good game Thursday.
"Baker Mayfield will start his first NFL game Thursday night for the Browns against the Lions, and his last one for a long time if all goes as planned."
Ever since the Browns drafted Mayfield, he has consistently shown that he has the right mindset heading into the season. With him being named the backup quarterback this season, there should be confidence he can handle the role well until he is made the starter for next season.
After the Browns made the move to sign free agent guard Earl Watford, Randy Gurzi believes that adding the former starter fixes the Browns interior depth problem and gives them a good option should anything happen to the starters.
