2016 Super Bowl Odds: Cleveland Browns are 66 to 1

Who is ready to see Joe Thomas hoist the Lombardi Trophy next year?

The odds for the 2016 Super Bowl are out, and for the third year in a row, the Cleveland Browns are opening at 66/1 odds. You'd have to think that the Browns were on pace to have much better odds until their five game losing streak at the end of the year forced to have a below-500 record. The odds for the AFC North teams are listed below:

  • Pittsburgh Steelers (25/1) - better than last year, when they were 33/1
  • Baltimore Ravens (33/1) - worse than last year, when they were 40/1
  • Cincinnati Bengals (40/1) - worse than last year, when they were 25/1
  • Cleveland Browns (66/1) - same as last year, when they were 66/1

Does anyone feel like placing bets on the Browns? The odds for the AFC North teams in general are pretty much on par from last year, despite three teams from the division making the postseason. The early favorites for next year's Super Bowl are the Seattle Seahawks (5/1), with the New England Patriots (7/1), Green Bay Packers (8/1), and Denver Broncos (10/1) to follow. Six teams have worse odds than the Browns -- the Jets, Buccaneers, Titans, Redskins, Jaguars, and Raiders.

Related to odds, here are some of the interesting prop bet results from this past Sunday's game, courtesy of Bovada (the outcome of the prop bets can be seen in bold):
