NFL Betting Predictions: Philadelphia Eagles vs Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns rookies will have a tough test their first time out as the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Cleveland Browns Stadium. BetDSI Sportsbook current live betting lines display the Eagles as -8 points favorites over the hosting Browns.
Michael Vick has been said to be close to 100% in practice at this time and will be ready for week one against the Browns. Should he go down again it would look as if Nick Foles has done enough in the preseason to win the back up QB job over Mike Kafka.
Vick once again will have a bunch of weapons with Jeremy Maclin, DeSean Jackson, and runningback LeSean McCoy. The Eagles defense maybe better with a new presence at middle linebacker former Houston Texan DeMeco Ryans. A noticeable loss will be corner back Asante Samuel who they got a measly 7th round pick for. Granted they have one of the best tandem’s in the league with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha still Samuels is a play-making presence that will be missed in a pass happy league.
The Cleveland Browns renewed the face of their team by drafting running back Trent Richards and 28 year old rookie QB Brandon Weeden who could have a tough time in week one vs the Eagles. Trent Richards missed much of camp getting his legged cleaned up by Dr. Andrews, and Brandon Weeden did not look anything spectacular in the preseason.
Weeden will not have any explosive targets but he will have some reliable options in WR Greg Little and TE Benjamin Watson. The Browns defense certainly needs some help on the line but their secondary is sharp with third year corner Joe Haden and veteran Sheldon Browns.
NFL Betting Predictions Philadelphia Eagles vs Cleveland Browns:
The Cleveland Browns just did not show me enough during the preseason to pick them over the more polished Philadelphia Eagles franchise in week one. Michael Vick will start and I think the Eagles win this one big on the road
