Cleveland Browns NFL Betting

The Cleveland Browns continue to be one of the most downtrodden franchises in the NFL since their return to the league in 1999. They have only made the playoffs twice in 24 seasons (2002 and 2020), and they finished dead last in the AFC North once again after falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers in their season finale. The good news for Cleveland is that Deshaun Watson will be available for the entirety of the 2023 campaign after serving an 11-game suspension in 2022, but Watson didn’t play particularly well after returning to action.

Cleveland Browns 2022 Season Recap

Well before the start of the 2022 season, the Cleveland Browns sent shockwaves throughout the league by dealing for Deshaun Watson. Cleveland was not one of the favorites to land Watson until promising to sign the quarterback to a five-year, $230 million contract that was fully guaranteed. The Browns dealt three first-round picks, a third-round pick, and a fourth-round pick to the Texans for Watson and a fifth-round pick, effectively banking on Watson being the franchise’s quarterback of the present and the future.

Unfortunately, Watson was suspended for 11 games before the start of the season as a result of dozens of sexual assault claims by massage therapists. That led to Jacoby Brissett being QB1 for much of the season. Brissett didn’t play poorly, and his numbers were actually better than Watson’s over the last six games, but Cleveland only went 4-7 with him under center.

Brissett completed 64% of his passes for 2,608 yards (7.1 YPA) with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. Meanwhile, Watson completed just 58.2% of his passes (6.5 YPA) with seven touchdowns and five interceptions, and he was sacked 20 times. The star of the offense was once again Nick Chubb. He finished third in the NFL with 1,525 rushing yards and found the end zone 12 times. Chubb averaged 5.0 YPC or more for the fifth straight season too. That earned Chubb his fourth straight Pro Bowl appearance.

Cleveland had three solid options in the passing game this season. Amari Cooper led the team with 78 receptions for 1,160 yards and nine touchdowns, and Donovan Peoples-Jones had a breakout year with 61 receptions for 839 yards and three touchdowns. Tight end David Njoku had a nice year too with 58 catches for 628 yards and four TDs in 14 games.

The Browns were a disappointment on defense too. They allowed 22.4 PPG and 331.5 YPG as a league average unit despite spending a decent amount of money to get better on this side of the ball. Myles Garrett had another fine season and made the Pro Bowl after recording 16 sacks, but Jordan Elliott and Taven Bryan were not strong in the middle of the defensive line. Additionally, no other Cleveland player had more than three sacks other than Garrett.

Special teams weren’t great for Cleveland either this season. The Browns made just 75% of their field goals, as Cade York was 19 of 27 from 30 or more yards.

Cleveland finished 3-3 in division play with home wins against all of its division foes and road losses to all of those teams too. The Browns should benefit from a last-place schedule next season.

The Cleveland Browns are one of the legacy franchises of the NFL. Yet the Browns have a complex history that is part of that DNA. The original Browns were founded by the late great Paul Brown in the All-America Football Conference. Cleveland won all four of its championships in the AAFC before merging into the NFL. In their first NFL season, the Browns won the championship. Subsequently, Cleveland played in the NFL championship game the next five years, winning the final two times.

By the early 1960s, the club grew stale under Paul Brown. And in 1962, Brown was fired by new owner Art Modell. After winning the 1964 NFL championship, the Browns were a perennial contender for most of the next three decades. However, they never made the Super Bowl after the 1966 AFL-NFL merger.

In 1995, Modell moved the original Browns to Baltimore to become the Ravens. The second iteration of the Browns was born in 1999 as an expansion team. Cleveland has a passionate fan base and has been plagued by incompetent ownership and consistent losing. Since their return to the NFL, the Browns have only two playoff appearances.
