Browns open as favorites to win AFC North after OBJ trade

The Cleveland Browns are now the AFC North favorites following the trade for Odell Beckham Jr., an unfamiliar position for a team only one year removed from going 0-16.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has the Browns as +140 favorites to win their division next season, according to ESPN's Ben Fawkes. The Pittsburgh Steelers trail at +160, and the defending division champion Baltimore Ravens sit at +250.

The Browns last won the AFC North way back in 1989.

"They have the most talented roster in the division and they are the team the public will be looking to bet," SuperBook director John Murray told Fawkes.

"Multiple big-name stars means public fascination and I think they would've won the division last season had they gone with the Kitchens/Mayfield duo from Week 1."

The Browns are even being mentioned in Super Bowl conversations, and they currently hold 14-1 odds to win Super Bowl LIV.
