NY Jets over CLEVELAND by 3
The Brown nosers still lead the chase for Sam Darnold (or Josh Rosen) in this year’s NFL quarterback sweepstakes with the early odds-on favorite, the Jets, falling back into mid-pack with a pair of wins to start the season. And if we’re correct in our assumption, Cleveland will still reside in the pole position at the end of the day. Remember, everything they did in last year’s draft was about this year’s draft, even so far as trading down and passing on what should have been their star QB of the future (Deshaun Watson). Just keep stockpiling the picks, Cleveland, and one day you’ll become the Philadelphia 76ers of the NFL. The Browns dress up as favorites again today for the second time in the Hue Jackson era (see debacle at Indianapolis two weeks ago) looking to shake a 1-10 ATS record at home following a home game, and a paltry 0-4 SUATS mark the last four games in this series. The Jets are 12-2 ATS as road dogs before facing New England and have rushed for 100 or more yards in 7 of their last 8 games. That’s important given the fact that Cleveland is 0-21 SU and 3-17-1 ATS in their last 21 games in which they have surrendered 100 or more rush yards. Remember, the Browns are 2-28 SU and 7-22-1 ATS the last 30 games, including 1-19 SU and 5-15 ATS under HC Jackson. They lost 31-28 here to the Jets as 2.5-point dogs last year. They can do the same today.
