Cleveland Browns Betting

It’s now 17 straight seasons that the Cleveland Browns have failed to qualify for the playoffs after the 2019 edition grossly failed to live up to enormous preseason expectations. Freddie Kitchens’ squad actually entered the year the odds on favorite to win the AFC North at online sportsbooks. The Browns came nowhere close to matching or exceeding their 9-game season win total odds by going 6-10 SU and a bankroll killing 5-10-1 ATS. Because of it, Kitchens and his staff were relieved of their duties after just one season hours after the 10-point loss to the Bengals in the season finale. There’s still a ton of talent littered within Cleveland’s roster, so it’s high time upper management found the right head coach to tap into it and bring it all together.

Season Recap

The season opener ended up being a glimpse into the future of the Browns 2019 campaign. With all the offseason hype the team received, they went into their Week 1 opener against the Tennessee Titans guns ablazed as 6-point favorites. Baker Mayfield led the offense right down the field for a touchdown on the opening possession which had many believing the team was for real for that brief moment in time. However, it got extremely ugly after that after Tennessee went on to score 13 straight points before the Browns hit the scoreboard again. Then the Titans turned the game into a laugher by scoring 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to end up cruising to the commanding 43-13 outright win and cover. Cleveland bounced back with a win on Monday Night Football the following week against the Sam Darnold-less New York Jets, but then lost another one in front of the “Dawg Pound” against the Los Angeles Rams in the Week 3 installment Sunday Night Football. The season looked to have taken a turn for the better in Week 4 when it handed the Baltimore Ravens one of what would end up being just two regular season losses.

Unfortunately, the triumph wasn’t built upon after the Browns went on to drop four straight both SU and ATS to the 49ers, Seahawks, Patriots and Broncos. Three straight wins against the Bills, Steelers and Dolphins gave the team a glimmer of hope at getting back into the AFC playoff race, but it didn’t come to pass. The Week 11 divisional matchup against Pittsburgh will without a doubt be brought up every time the AFC North rivals hook up for the foreseeable future after what went down at the tail end of the game between Miles Garrett and Mason Rudolph. Cleveland put the clamps down on what should’ve been a victory to be proud of, but Garrett’s helmet swinging tirade put the kibosh on the whole ordeal.

Cleveland would amass just one win in its final five games which included dropping the revenge bout to Pittsburgh in the Steel City. Though Kitchens fate was likely already sealed, it didn’t help his cause by dropping the last three games of the year to the Cardinals, Ravens and Bengals by an average of 13.3 points per game. When it was said and done, the offense scored 58 points less than the defense conceded, the team split its six divisional bouts, went 0-4 SU and ATS versus the NFC and managed just two wins and covers through eight tries away from FirstEnergy Stadium. Add it all up, and it comes as no surprise to see the team heading in a different direction come the 2020-21 season.

A year removed from shining as a rookie, Mayfield regressed in his sophomore campaign. While he ended up throwing for 102 more yards than the previous season, it took three more starts to get there. He also tallied a poor 22:21 TD/INT ratio after throwing for 27 touchdowns and only 14 interceptions the year prior. His inability to get things going saw newcomer Odell Beckham Jr. put forth the worst season of his six-year career. On the positive side of things, Jarvis Landry and Nick Chubb shined in their second year of service with the Browns. The former reeled in a career-high 1,174 receiving yards and 6 TD, while the latter nearly exceeded the 1,500 rushing yard plateau and came up just short of 300 carries. Kareem Hunt proved to be a solid compliment to Chubb in the backfield after he returned in Week 10, but he’s a free agent next season so it remains to be seen if Cleveland pays up to bring him back.

As poorly the 2019-20 Cleveland Browns proved to be, there is roster talent in hand on both sides of the ball. Hopefully that’s attractive for potential candidates like Urban Meyer, Robert Saleh, Josh McDaniels, Mike McCarthy, Kevin Stefanski, Greg Roman and Brian Daboll who’ve been bantered about as head coaching possibilities for next season.
