2022 Week One Best Bets: Cleveland Browns at Carolina Panthers

September 10, 2022

Football season is in full swing, and the number one thing everyone is talking about is the best bets to make! Sports gambling has been making waves across the country and is one of the most talked about topics in sports media. Every game is a chance to take home some winnings, and why not make a little money while you enjoy some Cleveland Browns football? Browns Brawl has you covered with the Week One best bets against the Carolina Panthers.

All lines and player props are from DraftKings Sportsbook. Data is from the morning of September 9th, and this article reflects lines that were accurate at that time.

Myles Garrett Over 1.5 Solo Tackles at -130

This bet takes advantage of a mismatch, which makes it one of the best bets for Week One. Myles Garrett will be lined up against rookie left tackle Ikem Ekwonu. It will be a long day and a brutal welcome to the league party for the rookie. Draftkings does not have props listed for sacks. However, a solo sack will also count as a solo tackle. This wrinkle helps us gain a little bit of an edge. If Garrett records two sacks, this bet hits. If he only records one sack, we only need a solo tackle somewhere else on the field for this bet to hit. I love this bet this week. 

Nick Chubb Over 7.5 Receiving Yards at -130

Many questions revolve around this Cleveland Browns wide receiver corps, which makes this one of the best bets of the week. We have all seen Chubb take screens to the house, and we don’t even need all of those yards for this bet to hit. We will see Chubb and Hunt involved in the passing game, and one play alone can get us to payday. This prop is a must-bet for your viewing enjoyment in Week One. 

Baker Mayfield Over 0.5 Interceptions at -120

Cleveland Browns fans are too familiar with Baker Mayfield when he is experiencing pressure in the pocket. He takes one or two sacks and then gets happy feet. Baker will start bailing out of clean pockets due to ‘ghost pressure.’ Once that starts happening, the turnovers start happening. This play is one of the best bets because Baker will see pressure early and often, at which point we have an entire game to rack up one lone interception, making this one of the best bets of the week.

As always, gamble responsibly and only wager money you can afford to lose. Sports betting is for enjoyment, after all! A small wager on a game you are watching optimizes the viewing experience. Check back every week this season as we reveal the best bets to make during Cleveland Browns football!
