If Pittsburgh beats Cleveland and Buffalo beats the Jets, then the Steelers would clinch the final spot in the AFC playoffs. After losing outright as a 10-point favorite last week, the Steelers are once again a double-digit favorite this week as they're -11 versus the Browns. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the over/under for today's game is sitting at 46.5 points.

Pittsburgh is 9-6 on the year and 8-6-1 against the spread, while Cleveland is 3-12 on the year and 6-9 at the betting window. Despite burning plenty of bettors last week with their loss to the Ravens, 71% of public bettors like the Steelers to cover today.

Free Pick:

Austin Davis will start for the Browns today with Johnny Manziel out with a concussion. While the Steelers had issues making stops a week ago, they should hold their own against Davis today. Plus, with how Baltimore was able to limit Pittsburgh to just 17 points, the Steelers should also take out their frustrations on the Browns offensively as well.

This is a lot of points to lay on a road team but the Browns aren't going to match what Ben Roethlisberger and Co. do offensively. While Pittsburgh has had its issues in the secondary this season, Davis doesn't pose much of a threat through the air.
