Traina Thoughts: Browns even mocked over schedule release; Week 1 NFL lines; more
1. When you’re the Cleveland Browns, even the release of the upcoming season’s schedule becomes a rough day. To say optimism isn’t something that’s associated with the Browns would be a gross understatement. Twitter was absolutely savage in mocking the Browns while the team’s opponents were revealed for the 2017 season.
However, we did find one Browns fan with a bright outlook.
Cleveland offensive lineman Joe Thomas also has big expectations for the upcoming campaign.
2. When it comes to betting, it’s never too early to scout. With the NFL releasing the 2017 schedule Thursday night, OddsShark.com has already posted lines for the Week 1 matchups. Yes, we still have to get through the draft and rosters aren’t set and the inevitable preseason injuries haven’t taken place yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t handicap a little bit.
