It might seem strange to call a Week 2 game must-win, but the result of this one could go a long way to shaping the rest of the season for either team.
The Browns and the Jets both opened with a loss in Week 1. Cleveland’s offensive line fell apart as Baker Mayfield struggled to make throws against the Titans, while the Jets blew a 16-0 lead against the Bills to go on and lose by a point.
New York holds home-field advantage for the second week in a row, but that hasn’t stopped the bookies from siding with the Browns.
Cleveland has opened as 2.5-point favourites ahead of Tuesday’s game, although it’s still worth backing this one to be close.
The general feeling is that the Browns were soft last week. Cleveland’s offensive line was manhandled, and their league-leading 18 penalties certainly didn’t help.
Cleveland has to win this game with the Rams, Ravens, 49ers and Seahawks all upcoming before the bye. A loss would be detrimental to their entire season, but with only four wins in their last 10 games against the Jets, this week is far from a certainty.
The Jets looked good on offence last week before their fourth quarter implosion. Sam Darnold attempted way too many passes, but running back Le’Veon Bell still put forward a noticeable 60-yard effort.
The last three games between these two teams have been decided by no more than three points, and although the Browns have a more talented roster, it’s worth backing the Jets to get things right in their second game under new head coach Adam Gase.
Tip: Cleveland Browns at $1.69
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: David Njoku at $11.00
