    The Cleveland Browns announced Wednesday that Brian Hoyer would begin the season as the starting quarterback.

    After inconsistent play in the preseason and flipping the bird to the Redskins, first round pick Johnny Manziel will begin his professional career as a backup.

    Despite starting on the bench, Manziel is the favorite (11/2) to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year. Sammy Watkins (6/1), Brandin Cooks (6/1), Bishop Sankey (8/1) and Jordan Matthews (10/1) round out the top five.

    Johnny Football is also favored to win over fellow rookie quarterbacks Blake Bortles (20/1) and Teddy Bridgewater (12/1), though both young passers have looked more polished in their debuts.

    Manziel is listed as the favorite because many believe he will get the starting nod in Week 5. Cleveland begins the season with games against Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Baltimore before a bye week.

    We project Cleveland to lose all three games. An 0-3 start will have Browns' fans clamoring for the former Heisman winner to start.

    Johnny Manziel – Will he start Week 5 vs. Tennessee?
    Yes: +125
    No: -175

    Regardless of his antics and preseason performance, we project Manziel to be worth +12.9% to Cleveland's playoff chances over Brian Hoyer.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
