Are Browns worth 14/1 odds?

Super Bowl LIV Odds 4/8/19, Are Cleveland Browns over-valued at 14/1

It’s been quite an offseason for the Cleveland Browns, but should you take them seriously as a Super Bowl contender?

According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Browns are currently listed with 15/1 odds to win the Super Bowl, which is the fifth-shortest odds in the league. The Patriots remain the favorite with 6/1 odds while the Chiefs and Rams are next at 8/1.

The Browns closed their 2018 regular season by going 5-2 over their last seven to finish with a 7-8-1 record. While that isn’t anything mind-blowing, the Browns had won just four total games in the previous three seasons combined and they haven’t gotten to 8 wins since 2007.

Clearly the franchise is believing that this is their time to strike, as they made some key additions during the offseason. The team signed running back Kareem Hunt, who was let go by the Chiefs last season due to an incident where he assaulted a woman. Hunt will have to sit out eight games to open the year, but he was very productive for the Chiefs, posting 2,151 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns over 27 games while also catching 79 passes for 833 yards and 10 scores.

Trades were a big part of the offseason as well. Cleveland traded for New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon. He has 51.5 sacks over his career and will partner up with Myles Garrett, who had 13.5 sacks last season.

The biggest move was the trade for Odell Beckham Jr., one of the league’s best wide receivers. Beckham has 390 catches for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns over his five-year career. Last season, he had 1,052 yards and six touchdowns over 12 games. He joins an offense that was 14th in passing last season, but that includes the team not using Baker Mayfield early in the year. The rookie had a great first season, throwing for 3,725 yards and 27 touchdowns with 14 interceptions. He also rushed for 131 yards.

When it comes to Cleveland’s value, I think right now they certainly are being over-valued. The Browns have never won the Super Bowl and haven’t made a playoff appearance since 2002. While they certainly look strong on paper, I am more on the prove it to me mindset before I am going to give them a wealth of credit. Freddie Kitchens is also an unproven coach that may not be able to help this team reach their potential. If you want to bet on the Browns, you may want to be patient and wait for those odds to grow a little more in your favor.
