- Our staff pick: Cleveland Browns to win “over” nine wins at -125 odds.
The Cleveland Browns have been the laughingstock of the NFL for several years, but there is a significant buzz surrounding this group as the 2019 season approaches. Quarterback Baker Mayfield looks like a star in the making and the team has loaded up with weapons around him.
The Cleveland fanbase has struggled through plenty of fruitless years and the crowd is excited about the potential of this group. Making the leap to contender is not an easy one but there is no doubt the Browns have the talent to do so. New coach Freddie Kitchens will aim to keep things rolling after a strong finish to last year.
The oddsmakers agree with the fans that the Browns have what it takes to have a successful year, and that is reflected in their season win total.
Cleveland Browns | NFL Season Win Total Odds
The Browns’ regular season win total is set at nine for 2019, which is much higher than in past years. The “over” is the favorite at -125 while the “under” comes in at +104.
The Browns finished last season with a record of 7-8-1. They started the year slowly but looked really good down the stretch, which is why there is such optimism for this year. Cleveland does not have the easiest division as it will have to beat out the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North title, but the Browns are looking like the favorite.
Mayfield was the No. 1 overall pick in the draft a year ago and lived up to the billing. He threw for 3,725 yards with 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Quarterbacks often take a big jump heading into their second season, and if Mayfield follows that script than the offense could be explosive.
Cleveland has some serious weapons on offense. The Browns traded for star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. in the offseason and he will be added to a wide receiver corps which also includes Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway. Nick Chubb looks like a star in the making at running back and the team added Kareem Hunt, who was released from the Chiefs last season for violence against a woman.
The Cleveland defense also has a set of stars. Cornerback Denzel Ward was great as a rookie and the team drafted Greedy Williams in the second round. If he can be another sticky cover corner the Browns will be in good shape in the secondary. The Browns have a great pass-rusher in Myles Garrett while Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson were added this offseason.
The Browns will play the Steelers, Ravens and Bengals once apiece at home and away in 2019. The other home games for Cleveland this year will come against the Titans, Rams, Seahawks, Bills and Dolphins. Their other road games will come against the Jets, 49ers, Patriots, Broncos and Cardinals.

Our staff picks: Cleveland Browns “over” nine wins at -125 odds
It’s not easy to make the leap from average team to great one, but there seems to be every reason to believe in the Browns. This is one of the most talented teams in the NFL, and Mayfield is poised to break into stardom. Some bettors may feel like this is a too-good-to-be-true season for the Browns and that something will go wrong.
However, the talent is too good to ignore. The win total is much higher than Cleveland is used to and yet it is still too low. The Browns should hit double-digit victories in 2019.
