Browns Super Bowl, AFC North Odds Slashed Following News of Deshaun Watson's 6-Game Suspension

The Cleveland Browns odds were on the move Monday morning following word that Deshaun Taylor had been dealt a 6-game suspension.

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.

The NFL star recently settled 23 of 24 lawsuits filed by women alleging sexual harassment and assault during massage therapy appointments in 2020 and 2021.

Watson's reduced suspension, from what some believed might be a full season, has provided the Browns with a more favorable path to a winning season in the eyes of oddsmakers.  He will sit out the first six games of the season and return in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Josh Rosen will fill in for Watson and start as quarterback in games that feature four teams with the ten longest odds to win the Super Bowl in the NFL: The Steelers, Jets, Falcons and Panthers.

When Watson was acquired by the team on March 18, the Browns' title odds were slashed from 30-1 to 14-1 to win Super Bowl LVII at a number of  sportsbooks.
