Baltimore (1-0) vs. Cleveland (0-1)
Open: 41 O/U, BAL -7.5
Press time: 39 O/U, BAL -8
Either Vegas expects DeShone Kizer to turn the ball over and give the Baltimore offense short fields, or it expects the Browns run defense to look much worse than it did against Le'Veon Bell. Or perhaps some combination. Any of those three outcomes seems plausible enough.
As much as I found Kizer's first start promising, facing Baltimore on the road is a lot tougher than facing Pittsburgh at home. I do worry about him imploding in this setting, though the Cleveland offensive line should at least protect him much better against the Ravens than the Bengals line did Andy Dalton in Week 1. Since I am fretting over Kizer, though, I'm pretty much out on his pass-catching options, of which Corey Coleman is the only vaguely interesting one right now.
For Baltimore, a couple useful options should emerge. I doubt Joe Flacco is one – he looked mostly harmless against a Cincinnati defense that hasn't impressed – but at least one of Jeremy Maclin or Mike Wallace could get something going here.
