The Cleveland Browns may have gone 0-16 in 2017, but that hasn’t stopped them from becoming one of the most popular bets in Las Vegas!
According to ESPN’s David Purdum, there are more bets on the Browns to win the AFC North than the three other teams in the division combined. And, at MGM sportsbooks, the Browns have attracted more bets to win the Super Bowl than the Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Browns’ season win total opened at 5.5 and has been bet up to 6 at some books. While I do think the Browns are going to be much improved this season, I have them slated to go 5-11 this season. I expect to make their big leap during the 2019-2020 season once a new head coach and Baker Mayfield take over the reigns.
