The Cleveland Browns and the Denver Broncos will start Week 7 of the NFL season tonight. Both teams are coming off big losses and hope to get back into the win column. 

Cleveland will be without Baker Mayfield tonight, leaving Case Keenum to start and lead the team. On the other side, Teddy Bridgewater is expected to be the Broncos starter and get them back on track after three consecutive losses. 

The Fox pregame crew made their picks before the game. Michael Strahan was the only one to back the underdog Broncos, while Reggie Bush and Howie Long went with the home-team Browns.

Fox Pregame Thursday Night Football Picks

Reggie Bush: Browns

Michael Strahan: Broncos

Howie Long: Browns

The Browns are -115 on the moneyline while the spread is a pick'em.

In the public’s eyes, this is a fair matchup. 49.1% of the spread tickets are in the Broncos favorite (50.9% for the Browns) and 57.5% of the ATS handle is in Denver’s favor. There is a little more separation between the teams on the moneyline, with Denver receiving 64.9% of the handle.

Cleveland will have to fight tonight, as it will be without Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt. However, Jarvis Landry will be available for the Browns. There were some concerns Bridgewater wouldn’t be available, but he is expected to start.
