- Myles Garrett was the number one overall pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2017 NFL Draft.
- The Cleveland Browns ranked 30th overall last season in total yards allowed.
- Betting odds for the Cleveland Browns to win Super Bowl 54 are +1200.
CLEVELAND – With the Cleveland Browns offense getting all the attention this offseason, people seem to have forgotten the old saying that defense wins championships.
Those looking at the other side of the ball will see that Myles Garrett is looking to be a big impact player in aiding the Browns defense this upcoming season and bolstering the Browns Super Bowl 54 betting odds.
“I hopefully have more freedom to be the player I want to be,” said Garrett in an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
“You can be as strong or fast as you want, but speed chop and power move aren’t always going to work. You have to mix up what you’re doing. Sometimes you have to stutter step, sometimes you have to spin inside, you have to run some games. You have to have some freedom to throw different looks at them, and we didn’t always have that.”
While the Cleveland Browns ranked 30th overall in total yards allows last season, Garrett himself recorded 13.5 sacks and was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl.
During his first two years in the league, Garrett played under former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. The Browns defense will now be led by new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.
Whether or not this will increase the productivity of the former number one overall pick Garrett will be interesting to see this season.
USAOnlineSportsbooks.com is getting the feeling betting on the Cleveland Browns is the hot new trend coming into the 2019 NFL season, but a trip to Super Bowl 54 will presumably have to include a solid pass rush.
The Cleveland Browns are currently listed at +1200 betting odds to win Super Bowl 54 at Bovada. This number is fueled by the fact that the Browns offense features the likes of Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr., and Nick Chubb.
But, having Pro Bowlers play at their peak on the defensive side will more than likely improve the Browns chances to win on a weekly basis which could, in turn, see their odds get shorter as the season goes on.
