The Cleveland Browns are back in primetime Sunday night against the defending NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are 2-0, but they have not been the high-powered offense of last season and Baker Mayfield has struggled leading the talented Browns offense thus far. Let’s hope both offenses come to life in a big game for both teams. Here are a few of my top prop bets for Sunday Night.
Jared Goff – Over 253.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Jared Goff only has 469 yards passing with two touchdowns and one interception this season. This prop bet is more about the injuries in the Browns secondary than about Goff’s play this season. Cleveland may be without every starter in the secondary Sunday night. Even if some of them are able to play they won’t be 100 percent, which is a big advantage for the Rams.
Baker Mayfield – Over 1/2 Interceptions (-180)
Mayfield has struggled with accuracy this season and already has four interceptions. He’s forced passes into tight windows and has also just missed wide-open receivers. Rams Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips is one of the best coordinators in the league. Look for Phillips to get pressure on Mayfield early and often and force him into some questionable decisions with the ball.
Baker Mayfield – Under 36.5 Passing Attempts (-125)
Cleveland through two games has called 73 pass plays and only 41 rushing attempts. The run/pass ratio needs to improve for the Browns offensive to reach it’s potential. Getting the running game going will also take some pressure off Mayfield and the passing game. Cleveland is currently 22nd in the league in rushing yards per game.
Cooper Kupp – Over 5.5 Receptions (+115)
Kupp is one of Jared Goff’s favorite targets and the Rams really missed Kupp last season when he went down with an injury. In the first two games, he’s been targeted 19 times and has 12 catches for 166 yards. Goff looks for Kupp in key situations and look for that to continue against the Browns.
Jarvis Landry – Under 56.5 Yards Receiving (-115)
Landry has seven catches in the first two games for only 99 yards. On a positive note, he does have the second most targets on the team behind Odell Beckham Jr. and is averaging a little over 14 yards per catch. Landry is great in the intermediate passing game which is important considering the Browns have struggled in pass protection. Landry should touch the ball a good amount, but the receiving yards will be hard to come by.
