Owing to a major roster overhaul in Cleveland, the Browns are the favorites to win the division from 2019, although Even the AFC North has turned into a branch in terms of competitiveness within the last few decades. Who saw that coming a year ago?
Cleveland is your +120??front-runner at BetOnline as the group returned to Ohio in 1999 to catch the division for the first time. The Pittsburgh Steelers (+185), Baltimore Ravens (+300) and Cincinnati Bengals (+1600) across things out in the store.
Here Is a breakdown of the race to be crowned champion of the AFC North

These are not the same Browns, although the Browns haven't started a year with the best opportunities to win their division. General director John Dorsey continued to reshape the group in the offseason by trading for Odell Beckham Jr. along with Olivier Vernon and signing Kareem Hunt and Sheldon Richardson. Building off last year's 7-8-1 SU album -- a fantastic season by past Browns' standards -- this team could be frightening in 2019.
Rookie head coach Freddie Kitchens was awarded the secrets to the Browns, and he has a franchise QB set up in Baker Mayfield. With gift everywhere you look on crime and standout players like Myles Garrett, Denzel Ward and Christian Kirksey on the opposing side of the ball, the timing might be right for the Browns to win their division.
As far as things have swung into a positive direction for the Browns, it's been the narrative for the Steelers. Pittsburgh was synonymous with consistency yet the 2018 variant of this Steelers was??anything .
The drama surrounding Le'Veon Bell's holdout is previously with the running signing up with the New York Jets at no service, although former No. 1 wide receiver Antonio Brown is also off the team after getting traded to Oakland. That means youngsters James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster will need to step up in their lack, and they are good enough to do so.
Veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still here, and he will be prompted to have a year under head coach Mike Tomlin. It is anyone's guess what is going to happen to the Steelers in 2019, but should you believe that they can get things back on track they're a great decision to win the AFC North in +185.
The impressive run to the postseason a year ago under rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson of baltimore was among this 2018 season's stories, along with the run-heavy Ravens are primed to be an enjoyable group.
With long standing signal-caller Joe Flacco this is Jackson's team today. The youth move on crime features Miles Boykin and newcomer wideouts Marquise Brown, therefore expect some growing pains out of this gate from Maryland.
The defense took a hit with all the reductions of Eric Weddle and Terrell Suggs yet general manager Eric DeCosta did quite a great job by obtaining Shane Ray, Earl Thomas and Jaylon Ferguson to help ease the pain. For the Ravens, look Having a program that is friendly to place a winning record on the gridiron.
The Bengals are one of the hardest teams to figure out from the NFL right now. Cincinnati give up longtime head coach Marvin Lewis in favor of Sean McVay disciple Zac Taylor, along with the crime should be better under the offensive-minded Taylor.
Andy Dalton, Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green are more than capable of??putting up points, but the greatest problem for the Bengals is quitting opposing teams out of doing the same thing. Cincy's defense was one of the worst units in the league a year ago and will fight once more.
The Bengals have a savage first half of their program with five road games in their initial eight months before the bye, so this group will be tested often and early. I do not think they are going to be much of a factor in the competitive AFC North, and therefore don't even consider their +1600 price to acquire the banner ads.
