As of November 30, 2023, 10:55h, rookie quarterback Dorian Robinson-Thompson is uncertain for Sunday’s game. If he’s unable to play, then the Cleveland Browns will rely on veteran backup Joey Flacco against the Los Angeles Rams. The Browns are currently a +3.5 road underdog for the matchup.
The Brown’s season has seen a revolving door of quarterbacks due to injuries. Deshaun Watson was the starter, but was lost due to a season-ending injury, followed by a struggling backup P.J. Walker. Now with a rookie quarterback and a new veteran, the team is rapidly learning how to adapt to each new QB.
Flacco, a former Super Bowl MVP, would be making his first start of the season with the Browns if called upon. And while the Browns have a top defense, their playoff position is shaky, leading oddsmakers to peg them as a dog for this weekend.
As teams vie for position, a prop bet by DraftKings gives the Browns -175 odds to make the playoffs and +130 odds to miss. According to Upshot, the Browns have a 9% chance to win their division and a 68% chance to advance to the playoffs. Finally, the Browns are listed at +5000 odds for the AFC Championship and +6500 odds to win the Super Bowl LVIII.
