The Cleveland Browns have been a train wreck for the better part of 20 years with the team producing just three winning seasons since 1990. There is hope among Browns fans that Mike Holmgren and Head Coach Pat Shurmur can turn things around, but few see that happening this season. Cleveland’s fan base is not alone in its skepticism; 2012 Cleveland Browns 2012 NFL Predictions at Sportsbook.ag have the team’s regular season win total set at five (Over and Under both drawing -115 odds) and its AFC North odds at +2500 ($100 to win $2500). Super Bowl Odds at the offshore book have the Browns listed as a 100/1 play to win the Lombardi Trophy.
Cleveland disappointed yet again last season, finishing the year with a 5-11 record. Defensively the Browns were a top tier team, ranking 10th and fifth in yards and points per game allowed respectively; however, the Colt McCoy led offense repeatedly came up short.
Club officials are hoping an infusion of young offensive talent via the draft (i.e. Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden), leads to a quick and dramatic turnaround. Like Sportsbook.ag, Cantor Gaming views any sort reclamation being a ways down the road, though. The Vegas based bookmaker, which released 2012 NFL regular season point spreads for weeks one through 16, has the Browns listed as an underdog in all 15 of its lined games.
