Browns vs. Steelers Free Pick
AFC North rivals clash in Pittsburgh today at 1:00PM ET when the banged up Steelers host the Browns.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Steelers opened as 4.5-point home favorites but the line has been bet up to 6 points. As for the total, it opened at 41 before jumping to 41.5.
Cleveland is now 2-7 on the year and 4-5 against the spread after failing to cover as a double-digit road underdog last Thursday night in Cincinnati. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, is 5-4 straight up and 5-3-1 against the spread after beating Oakland but failing to cover as a 6-point favorite last Sunday.
It's difficult to put together a reasonable argument on how the matchup favors the Browns, because it doesn't. That said, this is still a fair amount of points to hand a team coming off extra rest and preparation time for an opponent that its already familiar with. Not to mention Landry Jones will likely be filling in for the injured Ben Roethlisberger and with Josh McCown expected back for Cleveland, the Browns offer a little bit of value. Take the dog.
