Dorian Thompson-Robinson will split reps with Kellen Mond, as other quarterbacks Joshua Dobbs and Deshaun Watson will not play. Dorian Thompson-Robinson, better known as DTR, was selected 140th in the 2023 NFL Draft and is showing out in the NFL preseason.
In two preseason appearances, Dorian Thompson-Robinson completed 17 of 21 passing attempts for 184 yards and two touchdowns. DTR added 47 yards on the ground and has zero interceptions, boasting a 134.92 quarterback rating that made head coach Kevin Stefanski want to see more.
Although his success has minimal impact for betting on the Super Bowl, DTR’s skills give value to the Browns +155 moneyline odds against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Philadelphia Eagles Vs Cleveland Browns Betting Lines
|Philadelphia Eagles||-3.5 (-110)||-180||O38.0 (-105)|
|Cleveland Browns||+3.5 (-110)||+155||U38.0 (-115)|
The Cleveland Browns have value to cover the +3.5-point spread with -110 odds with Dorian Thompson-Robinson starting the game under center. Deshaun Watson is the main factor in the Browns Super Bowl 58 betting odds at +4000, but DTR could save their season as a valuable backup option.
Thompson-Robinson won’t get to see the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting defense that was active in joint practices, but the short Eagles Super Bowl 58 betting odds mean their backups will be a good test for DTR. The rookie’s impressive first performances make the Cleveland Browns a wise bet for Thursday night.
