6 Crazy Prop Bets You Can Make on Jets-Browns Thursday Night Football Game

Over the years, Thursday Night Football has left a decent amount of football fans still searching for entertainment after the final whistle blows. While we can debate whether this is because of the short turnaround or something else, the 2018 Thursday night games have been pretty good for a change. Now in Week 3, we've got the Cleveland Browns and their specific brand of insane football against an intriguing New York Jets team lead by rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. 


The game itself should be fun, but luckily there are ways to make it even more interesting. Given the two teams that are playing, there are some interesting prop bets that you can take a shot at to spice up Thursday night. 

1. Browns to Win by 1-13 Points

Odds: +150

The money line has the Browns at -170, so if you're confident enough to pick that then there's no reason not to attempt to nail the Browns winning by a margin between 1-13 points. This is still somewhat crazy considering the Browns are still 1-31-1 in their last 33 games, but they've looked better than that record shows through two games in 2018.

2. Team to Make Longest Successful Field Goal

Jets: -125 / Browns: -125

This one is fairly simple: pick which team you think will hit the longest field goal in the game. Given the Browns recent kicking trouble, they're bringing in Greg Joseph as a free agent. He played college ball at FAU, but Joseph has never hit a field goal in the NFL so far. Jason Myers is the Jets kicker, and he hit a 55-yard attempt Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. 

3. Duke Johnson Jr. to Score First Touchdown

Odds: +1700

First player to score a touchdown props are often an adventure, but it's also in your best interest to go with a player who gets a lot of touches. Through Cleveland's first two games that hasn't exactly been Duke Johnson Jr., but after head coach Hue Jackson said he wants to increase Johnson's usage, Johnson is an intriguing look at 17/1 on this prop. 

4. Jets to Win by 14+ Points

Odds: +600

On the other side of the spectrum you can go all in on Cleveland going full Browns and blowing this game by taking the Jets to win by two touchdowns or more. This probably would have gotten a lot more run if the Jets hadn't looked so mediocre against the Dolphins in Week 2. Of the four winning-margin bets on this list, +600 is by far the highest odds. 

5. Jets D/ST to Score 2+ Touchdowns

Odds: +10000

The odds will tell you how hard this is, even though the Jets did score one defensive and one special-teams touchdown in their Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions. It's an interesting pick between history and recency. Prior to their Week 1 explosion, the Jets hadn't scored a defensive touchdown since 2013. 

6. Last Scoring Play to be a Cleveland Browns Field Goal

Odds: +280

This one is just cruel given the last two games for the Browns. Cleveland had a field goal blocked by the Pittsburgh Steelers that would have won the game in overtime in Week 1, and they missed another field goal on Sunday with a chance to send their game against the New Orleans Saints into overtime. Maybe they'll have better luck with a new kicker? This bet is still interesting because the Browns could win or lose by however many points they want, just as long as the last score is a field goal kicked by someone in a Browns uniform.
