AFC North rivals will meet in the final Wild Card playoff matchup this NFL weekend, as the Steelers host the Browns at 8:15 p.m. ET. Even though the number has moved from 46.5 up to 47.5, is the under the better bet when it comes to tonight’s total?
151 Cleveland Browns (+6) at 152 Pittsburgh Steelers (-6); o/u 47.5
8:05 p.m. ET, Sunday, January 10, 2021

Nick Chubb rushed 14 times for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 17 win over the Steelers. Chubb's sixth 100-yard rushing performance of the season gives him his second straight 1,000-yard campaign, this one in only 12 games. Today's touchdown was a 47-yarder where Chubb looked shot out of a cannon before breaking one tackle and slipping a few others. Chubb scored in 10-of-12 appearances this season, a preposterous achievement. Leaned on strangely little over the past two weeks, Chubb will have to be a point of emphasis if the Browns are to have any shot at springing a Wild Card upset in their road rematch with the Steelers.
Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin
JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not practice Thursday. Smith-Schuster needs to get in a limited practice on Friday to have a reasonable shot to suit up for Sunday's playoff game against Cleveland. We'd expect him to be ready for the postseason tilt. If he were to be sidelined, Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool could see a target bump. James Washington would likely play a bigger role in the Steelers' wideout rotation.
Browns vs. Steelers Over/Under Betting Prediction
The over is 4-1 in the Browns’ last four conference games, is 4-1 in their last five divisional matchups and is 5-1 in their last six games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. Meanwhile, the over is 6-1-1 in the Steelers’ last eight playoff home games, is 12-3-1 in their last 16 playoff games as a favorite and is 18-6-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 25 playoff games overall.
