Cleveland Browns Analysis:
The Browns finished last season with an 11-5 record and ended their 17-year playoff drought in the process. This season, they have their sights set on the AFC North crown and a deep playoff run.
Offensively, the Browns played well last season, especially on the ground, where they averaged 148.4 yards per game. With Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt leading the way, expect them to keep the ball on the ground again this season.
Cleveland Browns NFL Betting
Baker Mayfield bounced back from a disappointing sophomore campaign in which he threw 21 interceptions, by throwing for 3,563 yards, 26 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.
Defensively, the Browns weren’t very good, with the team giving up 26.2 points per game. They addressed some of their concern through the draft, with the team using five of their eight picks on defensive players. If they play better than they did last season, they will be very tough to beat.
Jacksonville Jaguars Analysis:
The Jaguars finished last season with a 1-15 record, which was the worst in the league. Their reward for their dismal play is former Clemson standout Trevor Lawrence, who is expected to be their opening-day starter.
The Jaguars also brought in former Heisman winner Tim Tebow, who is competing for a spot as a tight end. That’s correct. You can bet on the Jags this season at the X Bet site and read about their XBet reviews here.
The Jaguars had the worst offense in the league last season and they struggled to move the ball on the ground. They added Carlos Hyde in free agency and drafted Travis Etienne in the first round, so expect an improved ground game.

Odds and Predictions
The Jaguars are favored to win this game by 1.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 37.5.
The Browns will rest a lot of their starters as they get ready for regular season to start, but the Jaguars will play a lot of their starters, especially the inexperienced ones ad they try to get used to the speed of the game. With Lawrence and Etienne expected to get a lot of playing time, go with the Jaguars to pick up the win.
