Tennessee Titans Vs. Cleveland Browns NFL Week 1 Odds & Predictions

Tennessee Titans Vs. Cleveland Browns NFL betting odds, picks and game preview

To begin with the Cleveland Browns are one of the trendiest picks heading into the new season. Quarterback Baker Mayfield and the Browns finished strong in 2018. New head coach Freddie Kitchens was hired based on his ability to get the most out of Mayfield. Yet there is legitimate betting on NFL concerns about Cleveland. Namely the 49ers were in this position one year ago. San Francisco won some meaningless games at the end of 2017 with a new starting quarterback. Gamblers took the bait and the Niners crashed and burned. Thus, “buyer be aware” warnings.

Tennessee Titans

At the onset of the 2019 season is a sense of do or die for the Titans and quarterback Marcus Mariota. First year head coach Mike Vrabel is coming off a disappointing rookie campaign. Sold as the man with the answers on offense Tennessee instead regressed. Mariota has always been seen as a complete quarterback with a unique set of skill sets. Yet he has not been able to completely flourish as a pro. Accuracy and durability are a perpetual cloud over his career. Ultimately Vrabel failed to deliver the goods. Its playoffs or bust for the 2019 season.

Players to Watch: QB Marcus Mariota (68.9% COMP, 2528 YDS, 11 TD, 8 INT, 92.3 RTG), RB Derrick Henry (1059 YDS, 4.9 YPC, 12 TD, 15 REC, 99 YDS, 6.6 YPC), WR Corey Davis (65 REC, 891 YDS, 13.7 YPC, 4 TD), WR Adam Humphries (76 REC, 816 YDS, 5 TD), WR Taywan Taylor (37 REC, 466 YDS, 12.6 YPC, 1 TD), PK Ryan Succop (26-30 FG, 28-31 XP),

Cleveland Browns

Late heroics of five wins in their last seven games have sparked hopes for the playoffs in Cleveland. Kitchens and Mayfield produced so well together that many are believing that momentum will carry over. Additionally, running back Nick Chubb had a near miss for a 1000-yard season. Chubb will keep defenses honest which will allow Mayfield to do his thing. Namely Odell Beckham Jr proved to be a top caliber number one receiver.

Players to Watch: QB Baker Mayfield (63.8% COMP, 3725 YDS, 27 TD, 14 INT, 93.7 RTG), RB Nick Chubb (996 YDS, 5.2 YPC, 8 TD, 20 REC, 149 YDS, 7.4 AVG, 2 TD), WR Odell Beckham Jr (77 REC, 1052 YDS, 13.7 YPC, 6 TD), WR Jarvis Landry (81 REC, 976 YDS, 12.0 YPC, 4 TD), WR Rashard Higgins (39 REC, 572 YDS, 14.7 YPC, 4 TD), TE David Njoku (56 REC, 639 YDS, 11.4 YPC), DE Myles Garrett (44 TACKELS, 13.5 SACKS)
