DENVER BRONCOS @ CLEVELAND BROWNS

Week 7 in the NFL kicks off as the Injury riddled Browns welcome the 3-3 Broncos to Ohio on TNF. Which one of these .500 teams will improve to 4-3?

The Cleveland Browns are in injury hell at the moment with Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb & Kareem Hunt all unavailable through injury. Case Keenum will deputise for Mayfield whilst a 1-2 punch of Dโ€™Ernest Johnson & Demetric Felton will provide the running game for Cleveland. The Browns have dropped back to back games and can ill afford to make it 3 in a row.

Denver are coming into this game on a three game skid after opening the year 3-0. The untimely Browns injuries have given Denver a great opportunity to get back on track. Denver boast their own nice 1-2 punch in the backfield with Melvin Gordon & Javonte Williams, both backs have been players in the passing game with Gordon catching two or more passes in 5 of 6 games this season, whilst Williams has caught exactly 3 passes in each of his last 4 games. Courtland Sutton is the undoubted #1 WR on this Broncos team and has five or more receptions in 4 of his last 5 games and has exactly 5 in both career games vs Cleveland.

A fit and healthy Browns team at home I would take to beat the Broncos here but these injuries will really deplete an offense that carries this team. Iโ€™m going to take Denver to win a close one.

Spread: Broncos +1.5

Total Match Points line: U/O 40.5

Game Prediction: Broncos 21-20 Browns

Best Bet: Courtland Sutton over 4.5 receptions, Javonte Williams over 2.5 receptions & Melvin Gordon over 1.5 receptions @ 9/2 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
