Cleveland Browns vs New York Jets (By: FairPlayBet)
NFL, Week 3
NY Jets (1-1) will visit Cleveland to face the Browns who have draw and loss.
My first thought was under the totals. Compared with initial 39.5 now we have nice 41, so even better for the under bettors. But, I still change my mind cause it's true Cleveland showed nice defensive effort in the first two games but there is a lot concerns about their defense now due to many injuries. Five guys are absent/questionable.
So, I'll go with side at the end. And of course it wont be Cleveland. Obviously they have improved compared with 0-16 from last seaaon and 1-15 from two years ago. They lost both games at the start of 2018/19 but honestly they could easily be now 2-0 instead of 0-1-1. Seems the ghosts from the past still chasing them and they like are afraid when need to close the game. So, till I see them actually win the game, I definitely wont bet on this team, at least not in the favorite role.
This -3 IMO is too much even at home and even vs NY Jets who are everything but a good team.
I was on the Jets in the opening round when they have visit Detroit. Back then it ended well. But honestly, Detroit Lions were the ones who helped a lot with terrible performance. First of all I mean on their QB Matthew Stafford who had back then 4 interceptions that ended with Jets easy points (TD).
Obviously I don't like too much the Jets especially their head coach, Todd Bowles. I am sick right away when I see this guy's face. I mean on his hopeless face when his team is not doing well while he can't do anything. And we had chance to see such face almost all the time last season. But in opening round of this new season he was smiling all the time. It was smile from ear to ear but he needs to thank to the above mentioned Stafford for that smile. In second round the Jets lost at home from Miami Dolphins.
Still, I think we should not be to rough towards Todd Bowles and the Jets. Cause at least their QB looked decent. The rookie Sam Darnold was good for my standards.
The Jets will play for the second straight time on the short rest. The last time vs Miami it maybe affected them. But now I don't see it as disadvantage cause Cleveland is in the same position (four days since previous game).
I have feeling Jets could win SU but I really hope for at least one very close game, so I like this +3 on the road underdog.
