Steelers vs. Browns Prediction
The Steelers have lost four straight, but will they roll as a heavy road favorite against the Browns today at 1:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Steelers are now 8-point road favorites versus the Browns after opening as a 9.5-point favorite earlier in the week. As for the total, the number hit the board at 49.5 and has been bet all the way down to 44.5 at the majority of sports books.
Following their heartbreaking loss to the Cowboys in the final minute last Sunday, the Steelers have now failed to cover in four straight games. They're also 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games in November, are 1-3-2 at the betting window in their last six road games, and are 6-23-1 against the number in their last 30 road games versus a team with a losing home record.
The Browns have lost 10 straight games to start the season and have dropped four straight at the betting window after failing to cover as a 7.5-point home underdog last Thursday against the Ravens. They're also winless at the betting window in their last five home games and are winless at 0-8 against the spread in their last eight games versus AFC North Division rivals.
OUR PREDICTION: The favorite has covered the spread in four of the last five meetings between these two teams and the Steelers are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games against the Browns. Lost in the Steelers' loss last week to the Cowboys is the fact that Ben Roethlisberger looked healthier than he did a week ago when the Steelers lost in Baltimore. With Pittsburgh's offense starting to fire on all cylinders again, the Browns have no shot today. This is a big number to lay on a road favorite in the NFL but the Steelers are due to blow an opponent out.
