As the first set of OTAs conclude around the league, the oddsmakers continue to release early lines for the the upcoming 2012 NFL season, with over/under win totals coming out this week. Early point spreads for each game already placed the Browns as underdogs each and every week, so one would imagine that their over/under win total would be among the lowest in the league.
The opening over/under win total for the Browns at Cantor Gaming is the lowest in the NFL, tied with the two AFC South clubs in Jacksonville and Indianapolis. Cantor set the line at 5.5 wins for the Browns, which would be right in the neighborhood of last season's ugly 4-12 campaign. The MGM Grand was only slightly more optimistic, setting the over/under total for the Browns at 6, a full game more than the Jaguars and Colts. Cleveland's AFC North rivals have over/under lines that would all put them back in playoff contention, with Pittsburgh and Baltimore over/unders set at 10 and 10.5 games and Cincinnati at 8.5 at the MGM.
