The NFL is set to appeal Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.  The league made the announcement on Wednesday.

On Monday, BetOnline had slashed its championship odds on the Browns for the 2022-23 season believing that the 6-week suspension would do little to harm the team's futures results.

The Browns Super Bowl odds moved from 33-1 to 18-1, their AFC Championship odds from 18-1 to 10-1 and their AFC North odds from 4-1 to 2-1.

Odds will shift again should the suspension be extended.

"On Monday, Judge Sue L. Robinson, the independent Disciplinary Officer jointly appointed by the NFL and NFL Players Association, issued her ruling in the Personal Conduct Policy matter regarding Deshaun Watson," the league said in a statement on Wednesday. "Under the 2020 NFL-NFLPA collective bargaining agreement ('CBA'), the factual findings of the Disciplinary Officer are binding and may not be appealed. Judge Robinson found that Mr. Watson violated the NFL's personal-conduct policy on multiple occasions and suspended him for six games. The CBA affords the NFL or NFLPA the right to appeal the discipline imposed by the Disciplinary Officer. Such an appeal must be filed within three days and would be heard by the Commissioner or his designee.

"The NFL notified the NFLPA that it will appeal Judge Robinson's disciplinary decision and filed its brief this afternoon. Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine who will hear the appeal."
