3 Bold Predictions for Thursday Night Football: How To Cash on a +1800 Parlay

Thursday Night Football may be a bit of a dud this week with the Cleveland Browns being forced to start Case Keenum in relief of Baker Mayfield against the Denver Broncos. While the play on the field might not be up to par that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun for you.

This one isn’t for the faint of heart, it’s three bold out-of-the-box predictions for this Broncos vs Browns matchup. Let’s see if we can predict some big-time returns on Thursday Night.

Cleveland Browns vs Denver Broncos Betting Odds

Case Keenum Anytime TD Scorer +950

First, we’re going right to the new guy on the block in Case Keenum. Keenum is your prototypical journeyman spot starter. He’s basically a poor man’s version of Ryan Fitzpatrick, as Keenum has played on six different teams since entering the league in 2012.

He’s been a pretty decent backup/fill-in guy for his entire career though to his credit. While he might not be known for his legs, that doesn’t mean that he isn’t able to use them. In his career, he has six rushing touchdowns in 62 starts. Ironically, when he was Denver’s starter in 2018, he had two rushing touchdowns one of which came against Cleveland.

D’Ernest Johnson 100+ Rushing Yards and Courtland Sutton 100+ Receiving Yards +1800

With no Nick Chubb or Kareem Hunt, the Cleveland Browns will turn to D’Ernest Johnson. In limited spots, he’s actually been fairly solid averaging five yards per attempt for his career. The Broncos have been great against the run this year but I’m wondering if a backup quarterback forces the Browns to pound the rock a little bit more.

As for Courtland Sutton he has 471 yards through six games so far. He’s had two games over 100 yards, most recently against Pittsburgh, but the last two weeks the Cleveland Browns have given up a ton to receivers. Mike Williams is just two weeks ago hung 165 yards and two scores on them, it’s not crazy to think that one of those Denver receivers could have one of those games.

Safety to Be Scored +1000

According to a study, a safety occurs once every 14.24 games. At +1000 odds, that gives us about a 9.1 percent chance of a safety happening in this game. With the Broncos struggles on offense and the potential change in QB impacting the Browns, maybe just maybe, we get something crazy to happen on TNF this week. Last year Cleveland has two safeties, and there have only been two in the entire league so far this season. We’re due!
