Cleveland Browns at Jacksonville Jaguars
Madden20 Sim: Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 7:00 pm
The Line: Jacksonville Jaguars +5.5 -- Over/Under: 44
The Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars meet Sunday in a Madden20 Simulation Game.
The Cleveland Browns don’t ever accomplish anything in real life, but they have all the talent in the world that makes them intriguing in the video game. The Browns have three players ranked 90 or better in defensive end Myles Garrett, running back Nick Chubb and wide receiver Odell Beckham. The Browns have another highly ranked running back in Kareem Hunt at 88 and a speedy slot receiver in Jarvis Landry who is ranked at 84 overall and 91 acceleration. Quarterback Baker Mayfield went from an 83 overall to a 76, but his 82 speed and 86 acceleration makes him somebody who can extend plays and even move the chains with his legs at times. The Cleveland Browns are a team you can win a lot of games with in Madden.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have only one player ranked in the 90s, and that’s defensive end Calais Campbell, who comes in at a 95 overall. The Jaguars next two highest rated players is their center Brandon Linder at 87 and their kicker Josh Lambo at 85 overall. It’s a sign of a bad football team when the kicker is the third highest rated player. Running back Leonard Fournette is still a tough guy who is hard to bring down even in the video game and his 92 speed makes for a solid option, but other than that there’s just not a lot to get excited about. Quarterback Nick Foles is a 71 overall, meaning he dropped six rating points since the games launch. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team that even the diehard fans won’t play with in Madden20.
Laying chalk with the Cleveland Browns is never something you want to do in real life, but in the video game world they're a pretty attractive team and should have a lot of success. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a tough sell when two of their top-three rated players are the center and the kicker. The Jaguars just don't have a lot of difference makers on either side of the ball that's scaring anybody.
With all the highly rated players on the Browns side, they should win this game by at least a touchdown.
