  • Jeopardy James Holzhauer thinks the Cleveland Browns are the worst Super Bowl 54 bet.
  • The Action Network ran 10,000 simulations of the 2019 season to find out if Holzhauer is correct.

Expectations are high for the Cleveland Browns heading into the 2019 season.

After winning five of their last seven games to close out the 2018 campaign and adding star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to an impressive offensive core that includes Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Jarvis Landry and David Njoku, the Browns are +1600 —  seventh-best odds — to win the Super Bowl.

But former “Jeopardy” champ James Holzhauer believes the Browns are a sucker bet.

He recently told Peter King, “I would say that the big thing to avoid is look away from teams that have all the hype surrounding them.”

The professional sports gambler went on to say, “I can’t believe we live in a world where the Cleveland Browns are the most hyped team in the preseason. But I would say they’re probably the single worst bet to win the Super Bowl right now.”
