Browns get no respect from Vegas

May, 30, 2014
Johnny Manziel earned the Cleveland Browns no love from Las Vegas.

On Wednesday, online oddsmaker released its over/under prediction for NFL win totals in 2014, and the Browns are at 6 1/2 wins.

That’s the same as the Buffalo Bills, and more than only the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings and Oakland. It also puts the Browns fourth in the AFC North.

The AFC North over/under breaks down this way:
  • Bengals -- 9
  • Ravens -- 8 1/2
  • Steelers -- 8 1/2
  • Browns -- 6 1/2

Bovada puts the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers as the slight favorite to win the division. The Bengals and Steelers are at 2-1, with the Baltimore Ravens at 5-2.

The Browns come in at 5-1. Denver has the highest over/under at 11 1/2, with Seattle at 11.

Vegas' prediction would give the Browns the fourth or fifth overall choice in the 2015 draft.

Let the draft chatter begin!
