Beckham raring to go for Browns opener

Updated: 26/05/2024


Odell Beckham Jr is likely to be a key point of focus this weekend as we get to see if the Cleveland Browns could be the real deal.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr is fit and ready to go as his side prepares to take on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday (Browns 2/5, Titans 2/1 – Money Lines).

The first week of the new NFL season is finally upon us, and Green Bay Packers became the first team to register a win after they beat Chicago Bears on Thursday night in the season opener.

A number of exciting games are expected on Sunday, with the Browns looking to deliver the goods after the acquisition of Beckham Jr.

The former New York Giants ace has been struggling with a hip problem, but head coach Freddie Kitchens says he will feature on Sunday.

Browns fans are expecting a big campaign from their team and Kitchens says those in the locker room are raring to go.

“I feel like these guys are excited to get ready to demonstrate the hard work they went through for the past six weeks,” he told reporters.

“We are all excited. We know the fans are excited. Hopefully, the stadium is ready to roll early, and we will be there waiting.

“Everything we have done from April on has been with direct correlation to getting to this moment.”

Defending Super Bowl champions, New England Patriots, are also in action as they prepare to take on Pittsburgh Steelers.

The battle between Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger will dominate the headlines, but Brady has a new target after the signing of Josh Gordon.

The Pats are as short as 2/5 to win, while punters can back the Steelers to emerge victorious from Foxborough at odds of 2/1.

Super Bowl finalists Los Angeles Rams begin their season with a difficult game as they host the Carolina Panthers.

Jared Goff, the highest-paid player in the NFL, leads a Rams offence that finished second in the league last year in total offence stats.

Panthers ace Cam Newton is coming into the new season after shoulder surgery, and he will have one eye on Aaron Donald, the relentless defensive tackle that led the way for the Rams in 2017 and 2018 (Panthers evens, Rams 5/6 – Money Lines).
