Eagles Browns Betting Predictions - The Eagles Want To See Where They Are Against The Browns

The Philadelphia Eagles aren't exactly under pressure to win this Friday in Cleveland, but their best interests would be enhanced by a strong showing on the road against the lowly Browns.

Why Philadelphia Will Win

Many an online casino took in bets on the Philadelphia Eagles to make the Super Bowl last summer. In 2011, so many Americans felt that the Eagles were the can't-miss superstar team destined to reach professional football's ultimate stage. This year, the expectations are much more realistic and dialed-down. This should help the Eagles to be a lot more levelheaded as they take the field for this week three preseason contest against Cleveland. As you know, the third week of the preseason is the one in which the starters get the most playing time. It's true that quarterback Michael Vick is not 100 percent healthy, but the rest of the Eagles' starters are going to want to have Vick's back in this game.

Philadelphia will want to show that on both sides of the line of scrimmage, it can push around an inferior opponent for a full half. If the Eagles' starters play up to their abilities, even a limited Vick should not stand in the way of a dominant first half, one that can give Philadelphia a double-digit halftime lead and a path to victory against a Browns team that is not about to rise in the NFL ranks. Philadelphia can rest its starters in week four of the preseason, but this is "go time" for head coach Andy Reid's bunch. It's time to make one genuine preseason push to demonstrate readiness for the regular season. The Eagles' mindset is what will ultimately be the key in this Friday night football fight under the lights.

Why Cleveland Will Win

When professional athletes step on the field to perform, they need to display a poker face and not give away either their emotions or any hint that they're outclassed in terms of raw talent. Members of the Cleveland Browns face this challenge on a regular basis. The saying "fake it 'til you make it" applies to any world-class athlete who goes through a period of struggle, especially when confronted with the realization that there's an even better athlete on the other side of the competitive divide.

The Browns have done well with this challenge in the NFL preseason. They took apart the Green Bay Packers in their most recent preseason outing, suggesting that while Green Bay is taking things easy during these exhibitions, the Browns are trying to reshape their identity and produce a cultural transformation in their locker room. This is exactly the kind of dynamic that leads to preseason victories. Cleveland might not be great in the regular season, but it seems to have more momentum than Philadelphia heading into this specific game.

Who Will Win

It’s not going to hold when the regular season arrives, but Cleveland is playing some quality football right now. In a preseason context, the Browns should beat the Eagles at home.
