The Browns probably feel like they dodged a bullet following the news that Deshaun Watson will only be suspended for the first six games of the season.
However, the NFL, which had pushed for a 12-month to one-year suspension, has the ability to appeal the decision by disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson.
SportsBetting believes the league will exercise its right to appeal, and ultimately, get a longer suspension for Watson.
Will Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension be increased?
Watson’s suspension had a positive impact on the Browns futures odds. Here’s that breakdown:
Super Bowl Odds: 33-1 to 18-1
AFC: 18-1 to 10-1
AFC North: 4-1 to 2-1 (Baltimore still favored at +175)
