Wahlberg is taking the over on the Browns' 5.5 win total.
Mark Wahlberg has plenty of action on the upcoming NFL season, including a "hefty" bet on his hometown New England Patriots to win Super Bowl LIII. Additionally, Wahlberg has also put some scratch on the Philadelphia Eagles to win it all, just in case the Pats fall short again.
On top of that, Wahlberg recently revealed to TMZ Sports that he has put some money on the Cleveland Browns as well. But instead of rooting for the Browns to shock the world and win a Super Bowl, he's just hoping they reach six wins on the season. According to OddsShark, the Browns have an over/under win total of 5.5, so if they at least go 6-10, Wahlberg will be in the green.
Last season the Browns went 0-16 but they've made some notable moves this off-season, including the additions of veteran QB Tyrod Taylor, rookie QB Baker Mayfield, rookie CB Denzel Ward, WR Jarvis Landry and running back Carlos Hyde. Not to mention, Josh Gordon's suspension is now in the rear view.
According to the New York Post, Wahlberg was recently spotted placing a "hefty bet" on the Pats to win Super Bowl LIII, though it's unclear exactly how much "hefty" really is.
As The Post reports, Marky Mark has also placed a bet on the Eagles at the William Hill Sports Book at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey - just in case his hometown teams comes up short again. Of course, Wahlberg has love for the Eagles since starring in the 2006 film "Invincible," based on the true story of Vince Papale, who signed a contract with the Eagles at the age of 30 despite never having played college football. When the Patriots and Eagles squared off in Super Bowl LII last season, the Eagles came out on top 41-33.
Heading into the 2018 NFL season, Tom Brady and the reigning AFC Champion Patriots are currently listed as the favorites to win Super Bowl LIII, with odds of 6-1, slightly ahead of the defending champion Eagles at 8-1, according to Vegas Insider. Other teams with favorable Super Bowl odds include the Minnesota Vikings (10-1), Los Angeles Rams (12-1), Pittsburgh Steelers (12-1), Green Bay Packers (14-1) and New Orleans Saints (16-1).
