    (Abbreviated write-ups on this busy ‘NFL Info’ morning)

    There’s been heavy Redskins money from the opener, with Washington now laying points at Cleveland tonight.  Yes, there is a QB battle in DC this year, which tends to be a ‘bet-on’ situation; a classic ‘knee jerk’ reaction from the betting marketplace.  But the markets didn’t dig deep enough for this one.

    Jay Gruden has made it very clear that he doesn’t care about winning games in August.  Washington won only one preseason game last year (Week 2 vs the Jets, by two points) , and they haven’t won their preseason opener in any of the last three seasons.  As for the Redskins QB battle, Alex Smith isn’t recovered and Colt McCoy isn’t playing tonight.  Case Keenum will start and rookie Dwayne Haskins – who has NOT looked good in camp – is expected to get the lion’s share of the playing time here.  That’s not a ‘bet-on’ QB rotation.  Cleveland has Drew Stanton and Garrett Gilbert expected to get most of the playing time tonight, two ‘bet-on’ QB’s in August.  Wrong team favored here, plain and simple.  Big Ticket: Take the Browns.

    Line Parameter: 5% at +1 or better, 4% at pk, 3% if Browns go off as the favorite
