The 2022 NFL offseason is creating a lot of interest. Several teams have made unique moves. The Cleveland Browns signed Amari Cooper, a wide receiver, and Deshaun Watson, a great yet questionable quarterback. There’s little to no doubt that the franchise will get off to a strong start in their upcoming season. Although, Host Rich Eisen has been baffled by the Cleveland Browns’ enhanced Super Bowl odds over the Cincinnati Bengals in recent times.

This year, many organizations have made news with their principal transactions and acquisitions. Even though the Super Bowl isn’t until 2023 and the league has not started this year’s NFL Draft. However, this does not prevent fans from analyzing their showdown prospects.

The Cleveland Browns Playoff Odds surprises Rich Eisen

On Peacock’s “Rich Eisen Show,” NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen highlighted why Vegas’ betting odds believe the Cleveland Browns have a higher chance of winning the Playoff Game in the next campaign than reigning AFC Champions.

He mentions in his show, “On what planet do the Browns have a better chance to win the Super Bowl than the Bengals? Are you serious? They not only filled that glaring hole in free agency, they crushed filling it and there’s still a draft to come… Honestly, just because it’s the Bengals? All of a sudden, Deshaun Watson comes and the Browns are no longer the Browns?”

He mentions that the franchise addressed its primary problem. They also made it to the Super Bowl and came close to winning it as a visiting team in Los Angeles.

There’s no doubt that the Cleveland Browns have properly utilized their offseason with massive trades. However, the Bengals will not grumble about being the underdogs again after their 2021 campaign. Cincinnati has slipped just under the limelight after winning big in the AFC North and AFC conference last year.

Rich Eisen also listed his top selections to win a Super Bowl on the latest issue of The Rich Eisen Show. The Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, Cincinnati Bengals, and Green Bay Packers were the second through fifth picks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, however, are his favorite to win it all. It’s sensible, given that the Bucs have nearly the same inventory that led them to an NFC South Title as well as a Super Bowl.
