Saints vs. Browns Free Pick
By Ben Burns
Start: 8:00 PM ET, Thursday August 10, 2017
Location: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio
Osweiller will get the start for the Browns; he’s expected to be backed up by Kessler, Kizer and Hogan. While Osweiller and co. would obviously like to perform well, the biggest goal for teams in Week 1 of the preseason is simply to avoid injury.
Its true that the Saints are known as an offensive team with a suspect defense. We’re not going to see much from their offensive weapons here though. A date with the Browns provides a potential opportunity for the defense to gain some early confidence.
Over the past three seasons, the Browns have scored 11, 17 and 12 points in their Week 1 preseason game. With scores of 17-11, 20-17 and 13-12, all three of those games produced 37 or fewer combined points. Provided this O/U line stays above that important number, take a look at the Under.
Ben Burns won big once again in the preseason last year. After passing on the Hall Of Fame Game, Burns is firing with this season’s first plays on Thursday.
Make sure you’re on board!
