Browns Super Bowl Odds: How the Deshaun Watson Suspension Impacts the Odds

The long-awaited news around Deshaun Watson's suspension was finally released today. According to reports, Deshaun Watson was suspended for six games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

The suspension is resulting from the NFL's investigation of 24 women who filed civil lawsuits against Watson for sexual misconduct and/or sexual assault. The length of the suspension could be appealed but for right now it appears that it'll be six games for Watson.

Naturally, the Browns Super Bowl odds and the AFC North winner odds shifted as a result of the news. Here's how they look as of today.

Browns Super Bowl Odds: +2500 (Bet $100 to win $2500)

After news broke of Deshaun Watson's suspension the Browns went from +3000 to +2500 giving them a 3.85% chance to win the Super Bowl. The Ravens, Bengals, and Browns who are all expected to be battling it out for the top of the AFC North have the same +2500 odds.

Many believed that Watson would be suspended for the year so only losing him for six of 17 will make a massive difference on the field. Jacoby Brissett is expected to start in place of Watson during that span. Will he be able to do enough to keep them afloat over that time?

Browns AFC North Odds: +230 (Bet $100 to win $230)

Not only did the Browns Super Bowl odds improve but we saw a drastic change in their AFC North odds as well. They went from +275 to +230 to win the division after today's breaking news. Once again, it'll be up to Jacoby Brissett to keep the Browns competitive while their quarterback is on the shelf for the first six weeks.

The Browns' first six games are against the Panthers, Jets, Steelers, Falcons, Chargers, and Patriots. If they can at least go 3-3 if not better, they will likely be in a good spot in terms of staying in the divisional race by the time Watson makes his way back.
