Browns vs Lions Vegas Odds Alert & NFL Predictions Week 3: In a Saturday evening week 3 NFL predictions match-up, the Cleveland Browns visit the Detroit Lions with a kickoff time of 5PM. The Lions are a -2½(-105) point NFL predictions favorite in this contest. The Browns come into the August 28 game with a 1-1 record after defeating the Green Bay Packers 27-24 at Green Bay and a NFL picks loss to the St. Louis Rams in Cleveland.
This game is a rematch of that wild week 11 NFL predictions match-up of 2009, a 38-37 Lions’ victory in Detroit on what amounted to an extra play on the last play of the NFL picks matchup.
Game 3 is when the starters traditionally play the longest and NFL bettors are expected to see a lot of starting quarterback Jake Delhomme and the rest of the first-stringers. Delhomme seems to be getting accustomed to his new digs in Cleveland after spending the past seven years in Carolina. the current NFL odds and predictions insight show Delhomme to wing-it again after completing 12 of 16 passes against the Rams in NFL preseason week two. He’ll need to continue to work with his young receivers, Josh Cribbs, Chansi Stuckey, and Mohamed Massaquoi and big tight end Ben Watson, and he’ll have a half or more to go after the Lions weak secondary. Other Vegas odds players to watch include running back Jerome Harrison and quarterbacks Seneca Wallace and Colt McCoy, if he gets in the game.
On defense, NT Shaun Rogers is listed as questionable so look for the Lions to run the ball right at the heart of the Browns “D.” with rookie running back Jahvid Best. Also the Vegas odds indicate to watch for Joe Haden, the teams #1 draft choice at cornerback, to play a lot of snaps, especially when the Browns play a nickel or dime defense. Haden will have his hands full with the Lions talented receivers Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson, and ex-Brown Dennis Northcutt.
If your planning to make ony over-under NFL predictions in this game, the NFL odds makers have posted the total to 38( ov-110) so look for lots of scoring early while the first-teamers play.
