Betting Preview for the Cleveland Browns vs Atlanta Falcons Preseason Week 3 Game on August 29, 2021
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta
When: Sunday, August 29, 2021, 8:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NFL Network
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (-5.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-0
The Browns are in good shape as far as their preseason form is concerned. They have won both of their first two assignments, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1, 23-13, then shutting the door on the New York Giants in a 17-13 victory in Week 2. Baker Mayfield has yet to see action in the preseason and that may just be the case again for Cleveland this week. However, the Browns could also get him a few reps under center just to warm him up for the upcoming regular season. In any case, expect the pair of Kyle Lauletta and Case Keenum to share much of the workload under center against the Falcons. Cleveland’s offense could have a field day moving the chains this Sunday, considering that Atlanta’s stop unit has barely done anything impressive this preseason. The Falcons have allowed a total of 60 points, so far.
The Browns are 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 games in the preseason.
Betting on the Atlanta Falcons (+5.5)
Regular Season Record: 0-2
The Falcons did lose to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 of the preseason on the road, 37-17, but that was a game in which Atlanta opted to rest almost their entire group of starters, while the Fins trotted out their first-teamers. In that context, the Falcons actually did pretty well, especially on defense, with Jonathan Bullard recording a sack. As a team, the Falcons consistently pressured Tua Tagovailoa. The offense, meanwhile, took a hit with AJ McCarron suffering a torn ACL in the Dolphins game. That means Felipe Franks could have plenty of extra snaps to go around against the Browns. Atlanta needs better protection, though, after it allowed four sacks for a loss of 23 yards in the Miami game. The Browns could be a bit thin in the secondary with an injury to Greedy
The under is 6-4 in the Falcons’ last 10 preseason games.
The Browns win, 27-13.
