sonhar chorando jogo do bicho NFL TNF picks for Broncos vs. Browns
Updated October 19, 2021
Come Thursday Night, National Football League fans can’t wait for another fun showdown to arrive between the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns. Unfortunately for the two sides, they both suffered losses in Week 6 and they’re in dire need of a win in Week 7. We have our NFL TNF picks for Broncos vs. Browns in a battle that we think should feature plenty of points.
Cleveland is the favorite to take down Denver on Thursday
With this game being played at FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland is the favorite to take down Denver on Thursday when they end up facing off. For the Browns, the big question mark for them is at running back. With Nick Chubb missing some action due to injury, Kareem Hunt had stepped in to take over as the team’s starter. However, Hunt was injured in Week 6 and is headed to the IR.
As for Chubb, he’s also dealing with a calf injury which kept him out of Sunday’s loss going up against the Arizona Cardinals. With that said, head coach Kevin Stefanski has said that he’s not ready to rule out Chubb for the showdown with the Broncos, leaving the door open for the star quarterback to potentially make his way back onto the field in time for TNF.
He’ll be needed, as the Browns were dominated by the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6 and lost 37-14. The Cardinals are a perfect 6-0 on the year and made easy work of Cleveland. For the Broncos, they were taken down by the Las Vegas Raiders and Derek Carr on Sunday. Carr looked superb, throwing two touchdowns, with one of them going to speedster Henry Ruggs.
Per the Las Vegas sportsbooks, Cleveland indeed is the home favorite here with its -200 NFL odds. The Broncos are the underdogs, as they’ll head to the Browns field this week with +168 odds. With Baker Mayfield also battling a shoulder injury, Cleveland sure has some issues on its hands. With that said, Denver hasn’t looked the same in recent weeks. We’re going with the Browns as our pick. Check out our NFL betting sites to get a wager in.
This will prove to be a defensive battle between the two teams
With so much uncertainty regarding the offensive weapons for Cleveland and Denver, this will prove to be a defensive battle between the two teams on Thursday night. Mayfield has a dislocated shoulder in his non-throwing arm. Despite that kind of an injury, which would keep most of us in bed, Mayfield is expected to play through the pain and keep making plays for Cleveland.
However, this of course is going to have a negative impact on his ability to be at 100 percent for the offense. Denver’s front-seven will also be putting heavy pressure on him from start to finish. That’s always going to be the case when your unit features guys like Bradley Chubb and Von Miller. Should Denver’s defense look normal, that will be trouble for Mayfield.
On top of that, the Browns very well could be with their third-string running back for this contest, o que só complicará ainda mais as coisas.Se Nick Chubb puder jogar, isso será grande para Stefanski.No entanto, com seu status no ar, é preocupante para Cleveland.Eles não querem apressar a corrida de volta e arriscar mais lesões, o que pode levá -lo a perder a semana 7.
Enquanto isso, para Denver, Teddy Bridgewater pode ter um grande jogo? Ele jogou mais de 300 jardas e três touchdowns no domingo contra Las Vegas, mas também jogou três interceptações.Ele tem que ser mais inteligente com a bola.Em termos de excesso, o Over tem -112 chances, enquanto o UNS é definido em -108.Nós realmente gostamos do Under aqui de 42,5 pontos.Essa é a nossa seleção.
Procure Cleveland para entrar no intervalo por pelo menos um touchdown
Com tanta pressão sobre Mayfield e os Browns para este, Procure Cleveland para entrar no intervalo por pelo menos um touchdown contra Denver.Embora pensemos que este será um caso de baixa pontuação, será imperativo que os Browns acertem o primeiro soco contra o Broncos.A última coisa que eles vão querer fazer é tentar brincar de trás contra eles em casa e no horário nobre.
Enquanto Mayfield está ferido, ele tentará alimentar Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry e outros com consistência para abrir o jogo.Com o jogo do chão, o ataque aéreo precisará ser apresentado contra o secundário de Denver.A proteção de Mayfield, obviamente, será crucial para a linha ofensiva.Eles serão capazes de intensificar e atender a chamada?
Em termos de spread no primeiro tempo, Cleveland foi definido em -3 com -105 chances.Achamos que eles cobrirão que se espalharão pelos primeiros 30 minutos de jogo e entrarão no intervalo por um touchdown.Mayfield, apesar de sua lesão, é difícil como unhas e ele é um jogador.Ele não vai querer ir ao vestiário ouvindo vaias da multidão.Vá com o spread da primeira metade para ser coberto pelo time da casa.
