The Cleveland Browns teased us last summer with a 4-0 preseason record only to go winless when it counts so Thursday’s contest in metropolitan New York means nothing to either side except for being the debut two exciting young players. It’ll be the first time 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield takes the field as a professional player. There are no doubt fans fired up, but they’ll have to wait for Tyrod Taylor finish his repetitions. Hue Jackson and all of Northeast Ohio are waiting in anticipation to showcase what they witnessed in 2017 when he led the Oklahoma Sooner past Ohio State at the famed horseshoe in Columbus. On the other side of the football, New York Giants want to see how the player drafted right after Mayfield fit’s into their future and running back Saquon Barkley is ready to accept the challenge. However, Giants fans want more bang for their buck with upgrades on offense, negotiations between star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. are coming along and a rejuvenated Eli Manning to match but either will play Thursday. Game time is 7:00 PM EST at MetLife Stadium with a slight view of Manhattan in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The NFL Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Cleveland as a one-point road favorite against the spread. The betting odds total is thirty-five points for Thursday’s Preseason match-up.

This sports handicapper is interested in viewing each play because it’s in the job description but more critical than Mayfield in my estimation is a premier talent who could have a magnificent career. Former Florida Gator wideout Antonio Callaway wowed everyone in his freshman campaign but trouble derailed his College day’s, and now he’s at it again after police sighted recently cited him for a marijuana charge. Josh Gordon should have taught Callaway a lesson and most of all it’s not right for an organization searching for an identity. The Browns defense will be much improved, and 2017 first overall pick Myles Garrett along with Jabrill Peppers who was also taken in round one are ready to become team leaders. Thursday’s game is going to be exciting just because its football; many around the NFL expect Cleveland to win six or seven games, that’s a realistic number. The team of NFL experts at Charlie sports believes Cleveland could compete for the AFC North in an era where it’s any given Sunday or from worst to first.

Pat Shurmur was the architect of a Minnesota Vikings offense that excelled with Case Keenum at the helm, and now he’s got a mature Eli Manning. As much attention as Barkley is receiving second-round pick Will Hernandez has been the talk of training camp with his physical playing style that the Giants badly need. Free agent acquisition Nate Solder should pay dividends immediately with pass blocking skills along with athleticism to match. The combination will take the Giants offense to elite status in Shurmers rookie coaching season. Over $200 million was spent upgrading the Giants defense in 2017 with the signings of pass rush specialist Olivier Vernon and cornerback Janoris Jenkins, adding middle linebacker Alec Ogletree should put a smile on the face of Giants faithful for an entire season; more than that they should be able to compete with the Eagles, Cowboys, and Redskins for the division title.

Happy Valley wants a BCS playoff appearance, and their wish could come true.

Written by College Football Betting Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NCAA Football Expert ATS Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. Philadelphia area native James Franklin did a respectable job his three seasons in Nashville, Tennessee with Vanderbilt University and entering his fifth season at Penn State things are also looking positive. With the recent scandal involving Urban Meyer at Ohio State the Big Ten East division should be exciting, even with the departure of running back Saquon Barkley Penn State will have their chips on the table. Franklin’s also showing how good he is on the recruiting trail plucking three five-star players who could make an immediate impact; the headliner is a defensive standout, Micah Parsons. A favorable schedule beginning with their season opener against Appalachian State, two weeks later Kent State comes calling, sandwiched in between is a trip to Heinz Field to take on in-state rivals Pittsburgh. Penn State also gets Ohio State, Michigan State and 2018 Orange Bowl champions Wisconsin as well as Iowa from the Big Ten West division. The November 3rd trip to Ann Arbor Michigan will give them a chance for payback from the worst performance in Franklin’s era, but it could as served as the turning point of the program.

Former quarterback and tight end coach Ricky Rahne was promoted to offensive coordinator this season. Although running back Saquon Barkley is now playing on Sunday’s there’s still a bevy of talent starting with signal caller Trace McSorley (3,570) passing yards last season, but he’s as dangerous outside the pocket, the Ashburn, Virginia native could be the best playmaker in College Football. Junior running back Miles Sanders gets his chance to showcase his skills with expectations not as high but he’s a proven player that Franklin believes will turn heads. Incoming freshman Ricky Slade also expects to contribute. Wide Receiver Juwan Johnson (701) receiving yards, second on the team last year will be McSorley’s new favorite target with DaeSean Hamilton now in the NFL. Four offensive linemen return to open holes; they are also capable of pass blocking in crucial situations. Theirs continuity in the unit. They must also replace Tight End Mike Gesicki who’s now on the Miami Dolphins, his size, speed, and ability to catch the football in traffic is nearly irreplaceable. Penn State put up over forty-one points per game last season, and they could put up more in 2018.

Nine starters from last season’s seventeenth nationally ranked defense which allowed opponents (16.5) ppg which was number-seven overall in College Football are gone. Nowhere did it hurt most than up the middle. Juniors Kevin Givens and Robert Windsor having the inside track at tackle. Freshman Micah Parsons has been moved from defensive end to outside linebacker and will probably be a starter in the opener with a redshirt freshman Ellis Brooks calling plays at middle linebacker. Defensive coordinator Brent Pry expects defensive end, Shareef Miller, to improve on his team-best five sacks; Penn State led the conference with 3.2 sacks per contest in 2017. No position will be affected more than safety where NFL draftees Marcus Allen and Troy Apke roamed for two season’s making plays in critical moments of big football games. However, cornerback John Reid, a starter in 2016 missed last season but returns fully healthy from a knee injury. Penn State will be point spread underdogs at least twice this season, and they won’t match their 8-4-1 ATS record in 2017-18. Bovada.Lv, list the Penn State Nittany Lions at 6/1 to win the 2018-19 Big-Ten Conference Championship.
