Can Cleveland’s Defense Keep Teddy Bridgewater Down?

  • Teddy Bridgewater has had a rocky start as Denver’s QB, with a 3-3 record.
  • The Broncos take on the Cleveland Browns for Thursday Night Football.
  • Bridgewater has -115 odds to pass for more than 229.5 yards.

DENVER - The Denver Broncos are on a three-game losing streak and QB Teddy Bridgewater has had a quarterback rating under 100 for each of those three games.

Bridgewater additionally has completed less than 72% of his passes in all of those games, while for the Broncos’ win column, he completed 76% of his passes or more.

Teddy Bridgewater's Passing Yards Props

  • OVER 229.5 -115
  • UNDER 229.5 -115

Teddy Bridgewater’s O/U of 229.5 passing yards suggests that sportsbooks are worried about his ability to perform on a short week against a good defense.

In the first set of three games that the Broncos played - their three wins - Bridgewater broke this number each time.

In their second set of three games - the ones they lost - Bridgewater exceeded this number twice, which means he’s gone OVER 229.5 pass yards in five of his six games, a number that online gambling fans should take note of.

It's also worth noting that in the game in which he did not break 229.5 pass yards, he was concussed and unable to finish the matchup.

The Cleveland Browns, Denver's opponents on Thursday, are eighth in the league in pass defense, giving up 220.7 pass yards per game.

Teddy Bridgewater's Passing Touchdowns Props

  • OVER 1.5 +120
  • UNDER 1.5 -160

Bridgewater has thrown for more than 1.5 touchdowns in four of his six games and has thrown for a total of ten on the season.

Cleveland’s defense has been fairly bad against passing touchdowns, giving up an average of 2.3 passing touchdowns a game.

This is good for 28th on the NFL rankings, and yet Bridgewater is still considered a heavy favorite to hit the UNDER in this matchup.

Courtland Sutton's Receiving Yards Props

  • OVER 66.5 -115
  • UNDER 66.5 -115

Courtland Sutton is Bridgewater’s WR1, although his projected receiving yardage total in this game is hampered by Bridgewater’s low projected passing yardage total.

Sutton has exceeded 66.5 pass yards in three of his six games played and saw double-digit targets in all of those games.

In each game he did not exceed this number, he had five targets or less. He’s on a two-game streak of having more than 10 targets and more than 90 receiving yards.

The Broncos take on the Cleveland Browns for Thursday Night Football this week. The game will begin at 8:20 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on the NFL Network and FOX.
