Why Bet The Cleveland Browns To Beat The Ravens
The Browns gave the Steelers quite a battle. Not only did they held one of the best offenses in the game to 21 points, but their rookie quarterback showed poise in first career start.
QB Deshone Kizer completed 20 of 30 passes for 222 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. So far all signs point towards the Browns breaking their bad QB luck.
“When you have the ability to run with your legs and extend plays, you never feel as if you ever should be sacked,” Kizer said. “Right now, I am trying to do my best to continue to get that feel that you need in the pocket to understand when it is time to go down and when it is time to escape the pocket and throw it away or to find someone who is in an underneath spot where I can drop the ball off or at least throw it at his feet so I am not taking sacks.”
“They are going to be star-studded on defense,” Kizer said. “That is what we do here. You get as many guys as you can to come in, play hard-nosed football and get to the quarterback. That is (Suggs’) job. It is our job to make sure we do what we can schematically, and then mono a mono, make sure that he doesn’t end up as close as he wants to the quarterback at the time.”
Why Bet The Baltimore Ravens To Beat The Browns
Last week, the Ravens easily handled the talented but underperforming Bengals. On Sunday they face a bigger test against the Browns’ young, aggressive defense, which has been revamped under coordinator Gregg Williams. Cleveland is playing quicker and making more key tackles than in previous years.
“Their defense has played well throughout the preseason and then again in the first game they played well,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “They held Pittsburgh’s rushing attack way down, which is quite an accomplishment.”
Baltimore is 9-1 in the last ten visits by the Browns to the M&T Bank Stadium. I don’t see that changing this week.
Browns vs. Ravens Week 2 Betting Analysis:
The Browns certainly do not want to be 0-2 heading into Week 3 against the Packers at Lambeau Field. Since 1990, only three teams that started the season 0-3 have made playoffs. However, I don’t see a path for a Cleveland win this weekend.
Bet on Baltimore big.
