Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

Ben Roethlisberger is out for Week 17 against the Browns. The team will rest their haggard starting QB in the regular season finale. Mason Rudolph will get the start against Cleveland, making all Steelers receivers and running backs terribly unappealing. Cleveland's defense is one of the week's best options with Rudolph starting.

Cleveland Browns DFS Spin

Baker Mayifeld completed 28-of-53 passes for 283 yards in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Jets. The Browns placed their top four receivers on the COVID-19 list less than 24 hours before kickoff, and they were without their two best offensive linemen in LT Jedrick Wills and RG Wyatt Teller. This game had disaster written all over it. Cleveland's defense was poor overall, and Mayfield was unable to take things over himself with the ground game struggling (18 carries for 45 yards). When he has a great offensive line and coaching staff, Mayfield can make the throws necessary. It's unclear how far he can lead the team when things aren't perfect around him. The Browns must win next week to have a chance at the playoffs.

Ravens vs. Browns Betting Prediction

The under is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams and is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Cleveland.

On the other side, the under is 5-1 in the Browns’ last six games as a favorite, is 4-1 in their last five games following an ATS loss and has cashed in nine of their last 12 home games when facing an opponent with a winning road record.
