Who would’ve thought that the Houston Texans would get a win this season before the Cleveland Browns? Well, it’s true, but Cleveland certainly seems likely to even their records on Sunday in this Texans vs Browns NFL betting matchup. A bounce-back seems to be in store for the team with Super Bowl aspirations. However, Tyrod Taylor will look to prove the Browns should have given him a bit more respect.

While they were playing the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Texans still surprised many people in their dominating Week 1 win. At one point, they were leading by 17 points. Hell, they nearly sent Urban Meyer back to college. Houston intercepted Trevor Lawrence three times, while Tyrod Taylor and Mark Ingram led an efficient offense. The issue this week is they cannot rely on the Browns committing turnovers.
The Browns had a lead for most of their Week 1 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Yet, it never felt like the Chiefs lost their grip on the game. Late game mistakes gave Kansas City the opportunity to flip the switch and win the game. This week, they should be able to lean on their run and easily win this game. However, will it be enough to cover the NFL betting spread? Giving 13.5 points is a lot, so the defense must be better this week.
