Top NFL player prop bets for Browns vs. Broncos
After simulating Broncos vs. Browns 10,000 times, the model predicts that Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will easily surpass his over-under of 229.5 total passing yards. Bridgewater won the starting job over Drew Lock during training camp and completely repositioned himself as one of the more aggressive quarterbacks in the NFL.
Bridgewater ranks third in the NFL in pass attempts more than 20 yards (32) and is third in air yards per attempt (9.6). Despite the ruthless aggression, he's still completing 70.2 percent of his passes this season. Without Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in the lineup, the Browns won't be able to control the ball as efficiently as normal, and that should help Bridgewater finish with 250 passing yards on average.
SportsLine's NFL model also says Browns quarterback Case Keenum will struggle filling in for Baker Mayfield and go under 220.5 total passing yards. The Browns' passing game already ranked 26th with Mayfield at the helm and now will turn to a backup who won't have nearly as much success with play-action with Chubb and Hunt out.
Keenum last started in 2019 with Washington and failed to clear 220.5 passing yards in each of his last five starts. Now, he'll have his work cut out against a Broncos pass defense that ranks 11th in the NFL. The model predicts that Keenum throws for just 207 yards on average.
