Brissett Not That Guy

Jacoby Brissett and the Browns know he is just a placeholder until Deshaun Watson returns from suspension. Into his seventh season, Brissett has played like a backup: 60.2 completion rate, six touchdowns to five picks and a 78.7 passer rating. He led a fourth-quarter comeback over Carolina, the worst team in the league.

But against the New England Patriots, he and the Browns got exposed. If Cleveland can’t run the ball effectively or falls behind too early, Brissett will be hard-pressed to engineer a comeback. His career passer rating is 77.7 when his team is trailing versus 83.5 when his team is in the lead. Brissett is a game manager.

Cleveland is built strongly enough to support a limited quarterback like him. The team has the most potent running game – first in the NFL in rushing yards and second in touchdowns – and a sturdy offensive line. But defensively, Cleveland has slipped and is down to 30th in terms of scoring. That won’t make them worth betting online.

Ravens Can’t Keep Choking Leads

It has been a rough season for the Ravens and their fans. Just six weeks in and Baltimore has already choked three games. This team could be 5-1 or even 6-0 had it managed to prevent a fourth-quarter collapse. Get this: Baltimore has been outscored 64-22 in the fourth quarter. In fact, Baltimore gave up more fourth-quarter points to Miami (28) than it has scored in six games total.

We can blame the defense for this, but Lamar Jackson isn’t holding up his own end of the bargain. Jackson is playing for a big contract. But in the fourth quarter, his passer rating plummets to 56.3 while his average yards gained per pass attempt is a measly 3.7. To better support Jackson, the Ravens have brought in DeSean Jackson as a receiver.

Having Jackson improves the former MVP’s odds of pushing the ball on offense. But a lot of their fourth-quarter mishaps are mental. Unless the team can shake off this “bad juju,” fading them on the live online sports betting lines could be a shrewd tactic.

Browns vs Ravens Prediction

It’s hard to place our trust in either team here. On one hand, the Ravens can’t seem to hold on to a lead while on the other, Cleveland is significantly worse at quarterback. The Browns will need to jump to an early lead where they can keep running the ball to victory. However, the Ravens allow the seventh-fewest rushing yards per game.

Baltimore’s weakness, its passing defense (28th in yards and 26th in scoring), won’t be exploited by Brissett. The Ravens should beat the Browns, though we’re not laying the points. Bet them straight or throw them in a parlay.
