Browns’ AFC Championship Odds

The Browns have not appeared in the AFC Championship since 1989, when they lost to the Broncos for the second time in three seasons. Since then, they have only made the postseason three times, with the last appearance coming in 2021 when they beat the Steelers in the Wildcard Round, but lost to the Chiefs in the Divisional Round.

Cleveland is considered a longshot to win the AFC this season, but you can get some real value with the Browns’ AFC Championship odds, including a +1900 price at DraftKings.

Browns’ AFC North Odds

The Browns have won 12 division titles in franchise history, but none have come in the AFC North. The last time the Browns won a division title was in 1989 when they took home the AFC Central crown.

Even though they have the third-best odds of winning the AFC North, the Browns have been a playoff contender in each of the last three seasons, making one trip in that time. 

The prices are relatively similar across the board, but you can find +360 odds for the Browns winning the AFC North at DraftKings and Caesars Sportsbook.

Browns’ 2023 Season Win Total

Entering the season, the oddsmakers project the Browns to win around eight-to-nine games. From 2020-2022, when the Browns became a playoff threat, the average win total number was nine, which means Cleveland is projected to replicate the same production it has had since 2020.

However, there is some momentum for what was once thought to be a dead franchise, and this could be the year the Browns finally break out.

If you believe the Browns will go Over their win total on the season, Caesars Sportsbook has Cleveland’s win total at 8.5, but it carries -175 juice. A better price can be found at DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM, as they all have a plus value on the over for the Browns’ win total. However, those sportsbooks have the Browns’ win total listed at 9.5, meaning Cleveland would have to win 10 games.

Here, we will give you the Browns’ win total number from the past 10 seasons and Cleveland’s actual record that season via Sports Odds History. This will provide you with a better idea of how the oddsmakers have fared on predicting this team.

Browns’ Playoff Odds

Whether the Browns are getting plus-money value on odds to make the playoffs depends on the sportsbook. However, most predict the Browns are not favored to reach the postseason.

At DraftKings and FanDuel, the Browns’ odds of making the playoffs carry juice for both sides. This means that you will not get plus value no matter how you bet on the Browns’ odds to reach the postseason at those sportsbooks.

If you are looking for more return on investment, BetMGM and Caesars Sportsbook both have the Browns’ odds on making the postseason at +110, with odds on not making it at -130.
