In major breaking news on Tuesday, the New York Giants traded wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.
Needless to say, this move has quickly increased the Browns’ odds to 14/1 to win Super Bowl 54.
Just take a look here. The Browns and Green Bay Packers actually sit with tied odds.

In what NFL universe would we have ever seen a team that managed just one win during the 2016-17 seasons compare with Aaron Rodgers and Co.?
Note that 14/1 is not too far down the totem pole from the Chiefs, Patriots, Saints and Rams. We are now talking big-boy teams.
The Browns are doing all the right things over the past two offseasons. The OBJ trade magnifies this further. It would not be surprising at all if they won the AFC North in 2019 and visited the postseason
