Place Your Bets. Browns Listed at 200/1 Odds to Win 2017 Super Bowl


A day after Peyton Manning and the Broncos took home the Vince Lombardi trophy for Super Bowl 50, Vegas Insider has updated the odds for the 2017 Super Bowl (the big "51"). The Cleveland Browns are at 200/1 to win it all — the worst odds in the league.

That's right, sports fans: A $10 bet placed today will net you $2000 come next February. If you prefer to play it safe, you can bet on the Browns winning the AFC Championship, (a league-worst 100/1 odds), and still walk away with a cool grand.

This is merely a PSA, inviting you to cash in on your tireless optimism or loyalty. Consider it a lottery ticket and put it out of your mind. 

Better idea: Bet on the Cavs to win the NBA Championship. At 3/1 odds, you're looking at a $300 payout on a $100 investment. Not a bad haul.

Or you could just blow $16.95 on that Browns money clip on Ebay
