Super Bowl Odds for the Cleveland Browns

NFL News - August 18th, 2009 - Written by Ryan Smith

The Cleveland Browns had a brutal season last year finishing the season with a disappointing 4-12 record. The team looks to turn it around this year with the arrival of new head coach Eric Mangini this off season. The 2009 Cleveland Browns have immense talent at some positions, while lacking greatly in talent at other positions. One of the biggest question coming into the upcoming season is who will start the season as quarterback. Both Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson are battling for the starting job, but Quinn seems to be the guy who will emerge as the team's starting quarterback. Whichever of these two is under center this year, will need to have a big season for a Cleveland Browns team that cannot afford a poor season at the quarterback position. The 2010 Super Bowl Odds have the Cleveland Browns listed at 80:1 to win the Super Bowl this season.

Last year Brady Quinn showed glimpses of stardom in his few games under center. He took over as Cleveland's starting quarterback in Week 10, but was lost for the season when he broke his finger in Week 12. In his limited action last year, Quinn looked comfortable in the pocket and seemed to win over his teammates. The 2009 Cleveland Browns will need whichever of these two wins the starting job to play big for them at quarterback. Running back Jamal Lewis only gained 1,002 yards rushing last year, a year removed from a 1,304 yard season. The Browns will need Lewis to return to his form of two years ago if they are going to have success on offense in 2009. The Browns added some young talented wide receivers in the draft this year, but they are led at the position by Braylon Edwards. Last year Edwards had a terrible season in which he dropped way too many balls. If he can return to his 2007 form when he had 1,289 yards and 16 touchdowns, the 2009 Cleveland Browns will be much improved offensively.

The 2009 Cleveland Browns defense is led by their star defensive tackle Shaun Rodgers. He remains one of the NFL's best at his position, but his 75 tackles last year is way too many for a defensive tackle to have. This may be why the Browns allowed 151 rushing yards a game last year, which ranked them 27th in the league. The Browns acquired some help at defensive end this off season which should improve their run defense. The 2009 Cleveland Browns will have a solid line backing unit which is led by D'Qwell Jackson. Last year Jackson had a breakout season with 154 tackles and three interceptions. The secondary will need to prevent big plays this year as they gave up 19 touchdowns a season ago. With Super Bowl Betting Odds listing the Cleveland Browns at 80:1 this year, there is not much expected of the team this year. Head coach Eric Mangini is hoping to prove the experts wrong by leading the 2009 Cleveland Browns to a big season. Check out BetUS for all of the 2010 Super Bowl Betting Odds.
