Cleveland Browns Injury Report
Before anybody logs onto their legal sports betting site and sees the Cleveland Browns as two-point favorites and jumps all over it, it’s important to know the Browns’ injury list.
QB Baker Mayfield has been ruled out as well as their pair of star running backs, Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.
Those three players have combined for 94.9% of the team’s league-leading 168.5 rushing yards per game. However, sportsbooks are still giving the Browns the edge over the Denver Broncos.

- Denver Broncos +2.0 -110
Can Denver Be Trusted?
The Broncos started the season with a 3-0 record and were receiving a lot of respect from NFL betting sites, but have since lost three games in a row and look much less impressive in hindsight.
Denver has beaten the Giants, the Jaguars, and the Jets, three of the worst teams in the league. Without a true quality win, it’s tough to believe in them, even against a depleted roster like that of the Browns. It should be noted that this is the first time all season that the Broncos will be underdogs in a game which may tell the tale in itself.
Browns Vs. Broncos Total Odds
- OVER 41.0 -110
- UNDER 41.0 -110
This is also the lowest projected scoring game of the week which makes sense due to both teams being in the top five for the fewest yards allowed per game.
This season there have been three games with totals of 41.0 or less and all three have gone OVER and have done so by an average of 10.6 points per game.
The matchup is set to begin at 8:20 p.m. EST on Thursday and can be seen on FOX or the NFL Network.
