The Cleveland Browns are going to win Super Bowl LIII. 


Okay, I'll admit that's a pretty hot take. But according to the money in Las Vegas, Cleveland winning the AFC North isn't. 


A sportsbook manager from Caesar's Palace recently informed ESPN there are currently more bets on the Browns to win AFC North than the other three teams combined. 

If you're confused, you're not alone. The sportsbook manager also admitted to drawing a blank when it came to explaining the public's drastic change in heart for the Browns too.


Last time I checked, the Steelers are in the AFC North folks.


Does this mean the Cleveland Browns are the favorites over rivals Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Baltimore? Only in the eyes of a confident – or delusional – public, not Vegas.

The high odds are tantalizing, especially if you're betting $10. And that's the rub. He only said they getting most bets. He didn't say how much. A ton of people could be making small bets as a just in case. 


Outside of their division, only the Raiders and Steelers have more bets to win the AFC as a whole. Perhaps, Baker Mayfield and the rest of Browns being front and center on HBO's Hard Knocks has something to do with? Point and case: who knows.
