NFL Preseason Betting: Weeden Continues To Impress In Preseason

Posted by Stan Simmons on 8/12/2013 9:28:24 PM

The Detroit Lions have openly expressed how they feel this is the most talented and complete offense they have had in place in some time. The Cleveland Browns aren’t there yet, but the consensus is they are on the right track. The Lions and Browns will clash this Thursday night in the second preseason game for both teams, each coming off online sports betting wins in their exhibition openers. Detroit is expected to be further along at this point than Cleveland, but the Browns have really flown under the radar following another strong offseason and could be better than most experts think.

Keep An Eye On: Brandon Weeden

Weeden had an inconsistent rookie season a year ago and it was as much about the pieces around him in the Cleveland offense as it was his own play, as he threw for 3,385 yards and 14 touchdowns but completed just 57.4-percent of his passes while throwing 17 interceptions. Perhaps the biggest offseason addition for the Browns came in the form of offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who has a reputation for developing quarterbacks in his passer-friendly system. Weeden has reportedly been making major strides in his first camp with Turner and it showed on the field in Cleveland’s preseason win over the St. Louis Rams, as he completed 10-of-13 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. This Browns’ team can only go as far as Weeden takes them, pushing his performances in to the sports betting spotlight.

Watch The Progress Of: Travis Benjamin (Browns); Harvard Rugland (Lions)

The development of Greg Little, Josh Gordon, and tight end Jordan Cameron will all be important to Weeden’s play, but one other weapon to watch the progress of is Travis Benjamin, the speedy wide receiver that is expected to take on a bigger role in the offense following the departure of Josh Cribbs in the offseason. Benjamin is the fastest wide receiver on the Browns’ roster, and he showed it off with a 91-yard punt return touchdown in last week’s win over the St. Louis Rams. The more weapons that Weeden has the better, and Benjamin has impressed so far. While it may not seem like a big deal, there will be a lot of eyes on the Lions’ kicking game once again this week and the progress of Norwegian sensation Harvard Rugland. Rugland made a name for his self as a youtube sensation and is challenging David Akers for the starting job in Detroit following the departure of Jason Hanson, and he impressed with 49 and 50-yard field goals in last week’s win over the New York Jets.


The Browns are one team that continues to fly under the radar of most online sportsbook experts, but they have done an excellent job developing the offense under Turner and it was on full display in last week’s win. Cleveland will look to build on that performance with another big game at home against the visiting Lions, and they should be able to pull it out with a repeat performance.

Odds: Detroit – 2.5
Pick: Cleveland + 2.5
