We now live in a world where the Cleveland Browns are perhaps the most-hyped team coming into an NFL season. With Baker Mayfield under center, Odell Beckham Jr. out wide and anybody but Hue Jackson on the sideline, the market is bullish on the Browns.
The question all season long will be whether the NFL’s newest darlings will be overrated thanks to public love. As of noon ET on Thursday, 70% of the bets were on Cleveland to beat the number.

Titans vs. Browns Betting Guide, Picks
Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game, including:
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full piece here:
Last year the Titans were No. 5 overall with a 90.2 coverage grade (per PFF), so this should theoretically be a hard matchup for the Browns passing game. But I expect Beckham and Landry to go off in their first game together since they were LSU teammates a half decade ago.
In 2018, the Titans defense was strong in Football Outsiders’ pass DVOA against tight ends and running backs, but against any of the three wide receiver positions, they ranked no better than No. 20.
Based on how the Titans used him last year, I expect third-year cornerback Adoree’ Jackson to shadow Beckham, and although Jackson has potential, he’s not on OBJ’s level yet.
