NFL betting intangibles start right at the top as Eric Mangini has arrived as the new head coach after leading the New York Jets against the NFL odds the past 3 seasons. Mangini has a solid NFL betting reputation as an offensive expert and that will certainly be put to the test this year as few teams were as bad on offense against the NFL odds last year as were the Browns.
Brady Quinn is currently listed as number one on the NFL betting depth chart for quarterback of the Browns. Quinn is a 3 year pro out of Notre Dame that has not lived up to the hype when he was the first round pick of the Browns in 2007.
Quinn has a career NFL betting quarterback rating of just 66 with only 2 touchdown passes and 2 interceptions. This could very well be a make or break NFL betting season for the Golden Domer. With Mangini teaching his new system, Quinn may get more preseason playing time than is the norm for a starter.
Derek Anderson is listed as number 2 on the quarterback depth chart but has more NFL betting experience and could land the top job again if Quinn falters. Anderson is a 5 year pro out of Oregon State and has started 24 games over the past 2 NFL betting seasons for the Browns.
Last year Anderson had a rough campaign as he had a poor 66.5 quarterback rating with 1615 yards passing. He threw 9 touchdown passes and 8 interceptions. Anderson figures to get more than the usual amount of playing time in the preseason which could give the Browns an edge on the board.
Brett Ratliff is third on the depth chart and should get a fair amount of snaps in the NFL betting preseason. He is a 2 year pro out of Utah. Workhorse running back Jamal Lewis returns to the Browns after compiling yet another 1000 yard season in 2008. Lewis has cleared the 1000 mark in 7 out of 8 campaigns.
The first preseason game is August 9 so be sure and have your account open and ready at Sports-Gambling.com!
