Browns Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season

Browns Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season


On paper, the Cleveland Browns looked like a team poised for some serious success last season. Instead, injuries derailed any chance of that, resulting in the Browns missing the postseason for the umpteenth time.

The team has undergone several offseason changes, with the biggest being Deshaun Watson as the new starting quarterback. Assuming that legal issues don't prevent him from playing, he should be an on-field upgrade over Baker Mayfield and give Cleveland a great shot at returning to the postseason.

Let's break down Cleveland's playoff chances in 2022 using odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cleveland is available at -210 to make the postseason. That equates to an implied probability of 67.6%, suggesting that the Browns are well on their way to the playoffs.

Browns 2022 Season Prediction

The Browns have the potential to be a powerhouse in 2022, but Watson's legal battle could throw a wrench into those plans. With Baker Mayfield looking for a trade, Cleveland could be stuck with Jacoby Brissett under center.

At the end of the day, there are just too many questions surrounding the Browns. Until Watson's situation is resolved, Cleveland fans should hope for the best possible season but be prepared for some disappointment.

I think the Browns will make the playoffs if Watson plays at least half the season. Otherwise, it could be another long campaign.
