There’s never a sure bet in the NFL.
Despite the fact that the Browns were missing four of their main wide receivers due to Covid-19 protocols, Cleveland was still a big 6.5 point favorite to beat the Jets. The Browns were popular bet on Sunday as over 80 percent of the public who bet on the game put their money on Cleveland.
Although the line dropped from +9.5 to +6.5 with four Browns wideouts out, the Jets weren’t popular picks.
