Betting market: Not only are the Browns favored for the first time in the Hue Jackson era, but bettors are willingly laying the points. Sixty-one percent of spread tickets and 78% of dollars wagered have come in on Cleveland as of this writing (see live data here).

The line remains where it opened at -3, but the -115 vig at BookMaker suggests that books are, in fact, heavier on the Browns.

The closest the Jackson-coached Browns have come to being favorites before was against the Colts in Week 3 of 2017, opening -1 at Pinnacle before closing as 1-point underdogs. PJ Walsh

Did you know? The Browns have not received the majority of spread tickets as a favorite since Nov. 30, 2015, when Josh McCown started at home against Matt Schaub and the Ravens. (The Browns lost 33-27.) Evan Abrams
