The 2018 Browns have sparked so much hope following the offseason and NFL Draft, that bettors are flocking to Las Vegas sportsbooks to place bets on the Browns not only having a winning season, but taking the AFC North title and even the Super Bowl. “There are more bets on the Browns to win the AFC North than the other three teams combined,” a sportsbook manager for Caesars Palace told ESPN. “Only the Raiders and Steelers have more bets to win the AFC [than the Browns]. The public likes the Browns, and I’m not sure why.” Most sports books are offering odds in the 60-1 to 80-1 range on the Browns, which would pay off $6,000 to $8,000 on a $100 bet if the Browns win the Super Bowl. Not a bad investment if it pays off. It’s a hell of a lot more attractive to place $100 on the Browns than the Patriots to win the Super Bowl, which would only pay off $600. “The Browns are our only liability right now,” Jay Rood, MGM’s vice president of race and sports, said. “We’re sitting pretty well on every other team except Cleveland.” – TO
