If you're looking to place a wager on this game, it's always wise to read up on what some industry experts are saying first. With that in mind, here are some expert predictions for the "Monday Night Football" game between the Browns and Jets.

Browns vs Jets Expert Predictions

The staff at CBS Sports is almost unanimous in its support of the road team playing a Jets team that will be missing Darnold, with seven of the eight experts picking Cleveland to win outright.

The staff at ESPN is also a near-consensus on the Browns beating the Jets straight up, with nine of the 10 experts picking Cleveland to prevail on MNF.

Frank Schwab, of Yahoo! Sports, considers the Browns a lock, specifically in betting pools, where Cleveland is still a 2.5-point favorite. Since most pools lock the opening lines early in the week, participants can take the Browns to win by a field goal rather than a touchdown.

With the Jets set to be without CJ Mosley and Quinnen Williams on defense, 16 of the 18 experts at CBS and ESPN like the Browns to win outright, while Schwab loves any pool where you can take the Browns to win by a field goal.
