The Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars meet head-to-head in preseason action at 7 p.m. ET on Friday night. Fans will be getting their first look at quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver Amari Cooper in a Browns uniform. Those two players will play a major role in securing a playoff berth.

Meanwhile, this'll be the Jaguars second preseason contest following their 27-11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in the Hall of Fame Game. The lone touchdown scored for Jacksonville was a passing play from quarterback Kyle Sloter to running back Nate Cottrell late in the fourth quarter.

Browns vs Jaguars Prediction & Pick

This is a matchup between two teams that perform very differently during the preseason. The Browns are 4-0 straight up in their last four preseason games a road underdog. They are also 11-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last 15 preseason games. They always seem to throw the first punch.

It's the complete opposite for Jacksonville. The Jaguars are just 2-7 straight up in their last nine preseason games as a home favorite. They are also 2-6 ATS in their last eight preseason games. Both of these teams will have their starters playing, so it's best to side with the one that has had success.

Final Score Prediction: Browns: 24 | Jaguars: 17

Browns vs Jaguars Best Bet

This game has preseason fireworks written all over it with both Trevor Lawrence and Deshaun Watson making their 2022 debuts. Lawrence has reportedly looked like a star during training camp and the Jaguars' defense also gave up 27 points last week. That's a recipe for points to be scored all around.

Once Watson is taken out of the game, it's not like the Browns are turning to a couple of unproven QBs. Jacoby Brissett, Joshua Dobbs and Josh Rosen all have experience playing in the NFL. It's worth noting that three of the Jaguars' last four home preseason games have hit the over. Back it to happen again on Friday.

Bet: Over 37.5 Points (-110)
