Week 1 – Baltimore Ravens vs. Browns (+8.5)
While the Browns haven’t won any opening matches since 2004, it’s tempting to wager on them. That’s considering that this was also the last time that Cleveland opened the season against Baltimore. The Ravens are standing as a 9-point favorite, so there is value in betting for Baltimore to win and the Browns to cover.
Week 2 – Browns vs. Bengals (-8)
Thursday night football will see the Browns hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL week two matches. Most NFL fans are excited about the battles between Joe Burrow and Baker Mayfield, though the Browns are expected to catch a break with this match. While Burrow is expected to show some great plays during the game, it won’t be enough to overcome Cleveland’s determination for their first victory at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Week 3 – Browns vs. Washington Redskins (-9)
With ten days to prepare after their week two fixture with Bengals, the Browns will catch another scheduling break with the Washington Redskins. However, there’s renewed hope for the Redskins now that Ron Rivera is coming in as the head coach. Moreover, the Redskins believe that Dwayne Haskins is part of their future, while the defense is packed with the first-round talent.
As a whole, the Redskins might not be ready to compete with top teams, which Cleveland might be this season. As such, you can expect the game to end in favor of the browns.
Week 4 – Cowboys vs. Browns (+4.5)
While it is under two different circumstances, the Cowboys are likely to taste the coaching woes that affected the Browns last year. Held back by Jason Garret, the team now has a new leader, Mike McCarthy on the sidelines for the 2020 campaign. However, Dak Prescott has a full set of weapons that will highly challenge Cleveland’s defense. As such, the Dallas Cowboys have enough to allow their offense to take the victory at home.
Week 5 – Browns vs. Colts (-1)
In 2019, Philip Rivers had a down season based on his standards. However, with an improved cast of weapons and the league-best offense, the team might be dangerous. Nonetheless, the home advantage will work in Browns’ favor, though nothing guarantees a win. Fortunately, the Browns are in a better position to win the game compared to the colts.
