Cleveland Browns Odds to Win Super Bowl LIV
Cleveland Browns Betting
Two seasons removed from a winless campaign, the Cleveland Browns are the preseason favorites to win the AFC North. It’s a small surprise since they have not won a division title since 1989. The Browns won seven matches this past year, matching their greatest total in the previous 11 seasons, and it had been twice as many wins as they had in the previous three decades combined. Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 overall choice in 2018, was inserted as the starter first last season giving the club equilibrium at quarterback. New trainer Freddie Kitchens made the movement from offensive coordinator and will continue to mould the crime. The hype in Cleveland is actual. Can the Browns deliver?

The misery came to an end in Week 3 when the Browns finally won after 19 games. This was also the NFL debut of Mayfield, who took over for injured Tyrod Taylor and began the remainder of the season. Mayfield became the 30th different starting quarterback for the club since 1999 and the expectation is that No. 31 will not create an appearance for several years. After two-and-a-half seasons with Hue Jackson at the helm, the Browns pulled the plug in in what was the defining moment of 2018. Jackson compiled just three wins in his 40-game tenure and the Browns went 5-3 under interim Gregg Williams.
Williams did not get the permanent job and proceeded on. Kitchens failed to receive the gig and will attempt to keep improving the offense. A group that ranked among the lowest three in scoring in the past few seasons, such as dead in 2017, made a leap to 20th under Kitchens this past year. Mayfield was largely responsible for the hop throwing for 3,725 yards and 27 touchdowns. Surrounding Mayfield with weapons proved to be a priority along with the Browns hit it big obtaining OBJ. They also added Kareem Hunt who led the NFL in rushing in 2017. Hunt will miss the first eight games of the season, leaving Bradley Chubb and Duke Johnson to carry the load .
The loss of Williams hurt the defense, but the Browns had a wonderful backup plan in Steve Wilks, who did a marvelous job in Carolina before failing as the Cards head guy last season. Some are just born to be assistants and Wilks fits in that category. Olivier Vernon joins Myles Garrett as powerful edge rushers and the team should improve on its 30th ranked defense. The schedule is difficult, but that is what happens when you pull yourself out of the dumpster.

Back when the Browns came into existence, they had been a model franchise. Joining the All-America Football Conference in 1946, Cleveland won the league title in all four decades ahead of the AAFC folded. Joining the NFL in 1950, the Browns won another championship in their first season, and played in the next five championship matches, winning additional titles in 1954 and 1955, as well as in 1964. Their streak of playing 10 successive league championship matches is unequaled in any North American professional sports league.
The club was not as successful once the AFL-NFL merger happened in 1970. The Browns reached the postseason five times between 1970 and 1985. They enjoyed their very best streak of success since the early 1960s under coach Marty Schottenheimer starting in 1986 when they won 12 games and reached the AFC Championship. The Browns would play to the conference title in a couple of the following 3 seasons, just to be refused each time from the Denver Broncos. That is the closest they’ve come to playing at a Super Bowl.
After the 1996 season, owner Art Modell moved the team to Baltimore and as part of this deal reached between the city and the NFL, Cleveland would retain the Browns’ properties with a new team to be launched by 1999. The Browns returned as an expansion team in 1999 and they’ve struggled. They’ve had only two winning seasons and one playoff appearance while sifting through 10 interim and head coaches. Their 16-year playoff drought is presently the longest active streak in the NFL. However, there’s hope as many experts rated Cleveland’s offseason the best in the league.
