The Cleveland Browns enter this season with a new regime and a revamped defense and offense that has generated plenty of excitement coming into 2013. While the team should be improved on both sides of the ball, just how much will the increase in talent help in the win column?
Plenty of people place wagers on the win totals for teams heading in to the year and the fine folks of Bovada.lv have recently updated their odds following the recent moves and news.
Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager of Bovada.lv says:
“NFL Season Win Totals is one of our most popular bets here at Bovada, and as a result, we have had some significant movement based on the amount of money we are taking on certain teams. Arizona, with our second lowest total of 5.5 wins has seen 90% of the action on the over which is the same case for New Orleans, who are only taking over money on their total of 9. The Patriots total, due to the loss of Hernandez and the status of Gronkowski, has dropped from 11.5 to 11 and in turn, the Dolphins who are also getting bet pretty heavily have moved from 7.5 to 8.”
So how does Vegas see the Browns stacking up in the NFL this season? Here are the over/under odds for their 2013 win total:
Over: 6 (-135)
Under: 6 (+105)
With the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers seeming to be on the decline, the Cleveland Browns have a great opportunity to make up ground in the AFC North and finally improve their record. There is no doubt that the team has the talent to make a serious jump in 2013, but it is up to them to gel and build the chemistry with all of their new pieces to the puzzle.
If everything can click in Cleveland, the Browns could be one of the surprise teams in the NFL this year.
