Best Thursday Night Football bets: Broncos-Browns

By VSiN Staff  ( 


It's another big Thursday Night Football game, this time between the Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns.

We've got a market report on the game from South Point director Chris Andrews and best bets from Adam Burke and Dave Tuley as Week 7 kicks off.

Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns (-2, 41)

Market report from Chris Andrews: Before the news of Baker Mayfield’s injury scratch, I had opened Cleveland -4 with a total of 43. Sharps took Denver + 4. I dropped to 3.5 quickly knowing that the Browns were dealing with multiple key injuries. The South Point was the first sportsbook to drop to 3 because I wanted to stay ahead of any injury reaction. A bettor laid Cleveland -3.

Then, news broke about Case Keenum getting the start at QB for the Browns. I dropped the line to Cleveland -2, and the Over/Under to 41. There wasn’t much initial betting at the new prices. Denver just suffered three bad losses to Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Las Vegas, while Keenum will be leading a M*A*S*H unit. I don’t have a sense, yet, of how the public will play this high-profile TV game between now and kickoff. 

Tuley: This Thursday night matchup looked a lot more appealing a few short weeks ago. Since then, the Broncos’ 3-0 start has been exposed as resulting from a soft early schedule. Meanwhile, the Browns have been decimated with injuries.
