Top Cleveland Browns vs. Arizona Cardinals Prop Bets

With the Arizona Cardinals coming into town, there is definitely a chance this game could be one of the best on the slate. Baker Mayfield and the rest of the team are coming into this game with a bitter taste in their mouth after last week's road loss to the Los Angeles Chargers 47-42 and now take on a Super Bowl contender in Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals.

Let's take a deeper dive into some prop bets we can make for this game as there are some good ones on the board here, as we can make some good money while watching the Browns game.

More First Downs: Cleveland Browns -133

The Cleveland Browns are built to move the football methodically through their two-headed running back room of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Looking at last week, they finished with 25 first downs and can dominate the game offensively. Comparing that to last week's Cardinals game against the 49ers, they had 20 first downs.

Cleveland's defense is a lot better than what Arizona can throw out, and that means the Cardinals can be stopped and get three-and-outs. With wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr getting healthier as the season goes on, he will get on the right page with Baker Mayfield, so locking in the Browns to get more first downs seems like a good play.

Will the Cleveland Browns Score on their First Drive? YES +117

This can really change depending on field position if they start off defensively and get a punt, but this feels like the better play. So far in the first five games of the Browns season, they have put up points on their first drive twice and turned the ball over on downs twice.

That gives me hope in this bet as head coach Kevin Stefanski is aggressive early with this offense and can make things happen.

Looking on the opposite side here, the Cardinals have also given up points on two opening drives this season, and picking up a few first downs to get into field goal range does not seem crazy to me. As long as the Browns offensive line can protect Baker Mayfield from the likes of JJ Watt and Chandler Jones, I really like the odds.

Longest Touchdown by Either Team: Under 39.5 yards -101

These offenses are solid, but I don't picture anyone beating a secondary player to score a long touchdown or a run breaking out and having a room of 40+ yards. I think somewhere around 35 yards is good, but the sportsbooks did a spectacular job on the number.

Cleveland has five passes of at least 40 yards, while Arizona has two such throws. Going with the under seems like the safer bet in this game, and it is essentially an even payout.
