Sportsbooks Set High Expectations For Joe Burrow Vs. Browns

  • Joe Burrow has passed for 2215 yards in his first eight games of the season.
  • Burrow has -114 odds to pass for more than 269.5 yards against the Cleveland Browns.
  • He has +154 odds to pass for more than 2.5 touchdowns.

CINCINNATI - Joe Burrow has passed for 2215 yards through 8 games, making him one of the NFL’s passing leaders, behind only Matt Stafford, Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Derek Carr and Tom Brady.

Burrow is set to face off against the Cleveland Browns, as his Cincinnati Bengals look to bounce back from a tough loss to Mike White and the New York Jets.

Joe Burrow Passing Yards O/U Odds

  • Over 269.5 -114
  • Under 269.5 -114

Burrow’s 269.5 passing yards O/U is not far off from what he’s averaged on a game-to-game basis this year - 276.9 yards.

He’s hit over 269.5 four times this year, and under it four times as well - it seems to be a solidly set line. Notably, some of his overs are just over - he passed for 271 yards against the Detroit Lions, for example.

However, some of his unders are barely under, such as when he passed for 261 yards against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Cleveland Browns have been very effective at limiting opposing quarterbacks relative to the rest of the league, allowing 220.1 pass yards per game.

This puts them at seventh in the NFL, although they’re only a season removed from allowing 265.4 pass yards per game. Burrow is a talented passer who could hit this O/U, but the Cleveland defense is stout, and will likely put up some resistance.

Joe Burrow Passing Touchdowns O/U Odds

  • Over 2.5 +154
  • Under 2.5 -204

Burrow has been a big part of the Bengals offense this year, accounting for 20 passing touchdowns on the year, third among quarterbacks behind Stafford and Brady.

The NFL betting markets do not expect him to hit more than 2.5 touchdowns easily, however, giving him +154 odds to do so.

Burrow is on a three-game streak of passing for three touchdowns, and has never passed for less than two touchdowns in a game this season. However, over the whole season, he’s four of eight in terms of passing for 2.5 or more touchdowns.

Despite the success the Browns have had against the pass in terms of yardage, they’re giving up 2.1 passing touchdowns per game, the fourth-highest in the league.

Burrow’s Bengals take on the Cleveland Browns in a matchup that will be broadcast on CBS and NFL Network at 1:00 p.m. EST.
