Cleveland Browns Odds, Bet Types, & Team History
The Cleveland Browns finished third in the AFC North in 2020, yet were likely the division’s most dangerous team come the NFL playoffs. Backtrack with us for just a moment. The Cleveland Browns — yes, the same team that lived in the cellar of its division for so long and regularly starts from scratch — won 11 games and came within a few plays of the AFC Championship Game. A Wild Card win over Pittsburgh highlighted a 17-year gap between postseason trips. The last time the Browns won a playoff game before then, QB Baker Mayfield wouldn’t be born for another few months. Not only did head coach Kevin Stefanski and general manager Andrew Berry right the ship in Cleveland in their first year, they have the personnel available to prove that 2020 was no fluke.
Mayfield enters his fourth NFL season headlining an offense that returns all 11 starters from a year ago. He threw for 3,563 yards and 26 touchdowns in 2020, which were on par with his first two seasons. The difference-makers in his game were the career-low eight interceptions (down from 21 in 2019) and 26 sacks taken (down from 40 in 2019).
Part of why Mayfield was able to stay upright more often is the same reason Cleveland averaged the third-most rushing yards per game last year. The Browns had offensive linemen — right tackle Jack Conklin, left guard Joel Bitonio and right guard Wyatt Teller — earn All-Pro honors in 2020 and all five starters are back. It can’t hurt to have a backfield of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt either. Chubb was the primary option with 1,067 rushing yards and a career-high 12 rushing touchdowns, though Hunt shined as a complementary back during his first full season with Cleveland. He ran for 841 yards and six rushing touchdowns while adding 304 receiving yards and a team-high five receiving touchdowns out of the backfield.
Jarvis Landry led all Browns receivers in receptions (72) and yards (840), becoming the team’s primary option once Odell Beckham Jr. went down with a torn ACL after seven games. Landry and OBJ will be back working in tandem along with Rashard Higgins , who ended up with 599 yards and four touchdowns after getting six starts.
Defense will be the side of the ball to keep tabs on. Four starters are back from 2020 and all of them were 25 years old or younger. Last season's first team All-Pro end Myles Garret , led this unit with 12 sacks and four forced fumbles. Defensive back Denzel Ward also had a strong year with 18 pass breakups and two interceptions. But the lack of experience could’ve been a cause for concern had Berry not gone out and acquired some veterans. Former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith re-signed while John Johnson III , Malik Jackson and Jadeveon Clowney arrive as newcomers. It also helps that Cleveland chose defensive players with five of its seven NFL picks in the 2021 NFL draft.
The Browns open the 2021 NFL season at the Kansas City Chiefs. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an NFL odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Free-agent signings: John Johnson (S, three years), Jadaveon Clowney (EDGE, one year), Troy Hill (CB, two years), Anthony Walker (LB, one year), Malik Jackson (DL, one year)
The AFC North is one of the more complete divisions in the NFL, producing four Super Bowl champions since 2000. Cleveland last won the AFC North in 1989 and has finished third or lower in the standings every year since 2008. Despite another third-place finish in 2020, the Browns have plenty to be excited about after winning 11 games and winning a playoff game for the first time since 1994. The next steps involve winning the division and competing for a championship, which is easier said than done when you’re in a division with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.
Pittsburgh won the AFC North at 12-4 last year while Baltimore tied Cleveland with 11 wins. Cleveland and Baltimore both won in the Wild Card round with the Browns knocking off the Steelers. The Cincinnati Bengals finished fourth at 4-11-1 and will look to see how second-year QB Joe Burrow performs coming off a season-ending knee injury.

Betting on the Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Browns were one of the worst teams in the league at covering in 2020, owning a 6-10 record against the spread — the worst mark of any playoff team last year. Cleveland’s 11 wins were by an average margin of 6.7 points while its five losses came at an average of 17 points.
Here’s an example:
- Ravens +2.5 (+110)
- Browns -2.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Ravens are 2.5 point underdogs against the Browns. If Cleveland wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Browns would come with a payout of $90.91. If Baltimore won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Steelers play the Browns and the over/under is set at 58 points. A wager on the over would require Pittsburgh and Cleveland to score 59 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 57 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 58 points scored.
In 2020, Cleveland averaged 25.5 points per game and allowed 26.2 points. As you might imagine, the Browns exceeded point totals more often than not in 2020 Cleveland hit the over in 56.2 percent of its games.
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Browns -130
- Bengals +240
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Cleveland the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Browns odds would mean every $13 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Bengals moneyline was set at +240, meaning a $10 wager would profit $24.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Browns moneyline and -2.5 point spread, Cleveland would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Take advantage of new bettor offers like the BetMGM Bonus, and use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.
Cleveland Browns Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Baker Mayfield 2021 passing yards: 3950.5
Let’s break it down a bit. Mayfield averaged 222.7 passing yards per game in 2020, the second season his average dropped after he had 266.1 in 2018. We’ll assume he jumps up to 244 this year right between those first two averages. If Mayfield sustained that pace over 16 games, he’d be up to 3,905 yards and be just short of the over. Remember, the NFL added an extra regular season game in 2021. Mayfield’s played every game the past two years. Assuming he played in all 17 games, he’d exceed 4,000 yards and hit the over in our situational prop.
Cleveland Browns Futures
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Cleveland Browns odds to win the AFC North
- Cleveland Browns odds to win the AFC
- Cleveland Browns odds to win the Super Bowl
- Myles Garrett’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year
- Baker Mayfield’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
