Pick: Pittsburgh +4.5

Neither team has played well to start the season, and I don' expect the Steelers to win. I do expect them to keep this within a field goal. Betting on road underdogs with the line between 3.5 and 9.5 in a divisional matchup, and the favorite is coming off a game in which they forced no more than one turnover is 42-29 ATS or 59.2%; Steelers HC Tomlin since 2007 as an underdog facing a divisional opponent is 67% ATS; Pittsburgh is 5-1 in their last 6 meetings, 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games against the AFC; the Browns are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

This spread has been moving between 3-5.5 between Sunday and now. With Watt out on defense, this Steelers team may be in trouble. They didn't sack Mac Jones once. What's worse is their offense ranks dead last in drive efficiency, and won't get better with Pickett on the bench. Trubisky ranks dead last in yards per attempt so this looks just like a Big Ben offense. Not saying it's all Trubisky's fault. The offensively line is miserable, and they can't establish a run game. On the other side, the Browns offense looked great against the Jets on Sunday. They have the best 1-2 RBs in the league and think they'll really have a field day here.

Steelers are averaging 26 points vs the Browns last 3 games. and the Browns have scored nothing less than 14 points in their past 7 games. should be enough to push it over the total, BUT this is an AFC North Divisional game. I am not expecting points here. the last three years totals that are 38.5 or lower are 7-0 to the under.

This line opened at -3 and moved to -4.5 after Clowney was ruled out?! I smell a trap. I fully expect this to be a close game as these two AFC rivals try to kill each other. The Steelers are missing some guys and are pretty banged up already, but CLE is also operating with out some of their main pieces and still have a back up QB running the show. I like the +4.5 points in what should be an ugly, knock em down, beat em up, slugfest

Both of these teams have played average to below average teams and the games have been close. The Steelers offense is inconsistent, but they know how to make things interesting. Pittsburgh just lost to New England 17-14. The Steelers didn't have much of a rushing game and turned the ball over twice. The Browns offense has looked slightly above average and so far this season, they have let things get out of hand in the fourth quarter. Cleveland just lost to the Jets 31-30. They did well rushing the ball and converting on third down. The Browns have the better rushing game and more efficient offense. Take the Browns -4.5

Thursday night gives us what could be a sleeper game. And I don't mean sleeper as in good. This seems like an emotional letdown for the Browns after making Joe Flacco look like .... well Super Bowl MVP year Joe Flacco. The Steelers have plenty of offensive weapons, but it just hasn't clicked yet with Mitch Trubisky back there. He better get it together quickly though as hometown kid Kenny Pickett is looking over his shoulder. Cleveland will most likely be without Jadaveon Clowney in this one but still has the ultra-talented Myles Garrett. There is no love lost between these teams as the last time they played on a Thursday night all hell broke loose with Mason Rudolph almost having his head Jason Voorhees'd right off. Throw the records and struggles out the window when these teams play. Feels like a close 3 pt game to me as they both rely heavily on the ground game shortening the game up. I'm on the Steelers + the pts

I don't trust the Steelers' offense at all. They've struggled all season to move the ball and find the end zone. The Browns implosion on Sunday was brutal, but they've looked like the better team and will be at home on a short week. Take the Browns.

The Browns are 1-1 but could have easily ended in the losing end in both of the two closely contended fixtures. The Browns were abysmal in both games against the pass and will have to significantly improve if they are to beat the Steelers. With Jadeveon Clowney set to miss this match, the Browns will struggle to fill his void as he's arguably among the side's best pass rushers. I'm thus backing the Steelers to play well and at least cover the spread as underdogs.

The Browns have a better offense and the Steelers don't move the ball all that well and they will still be without Watts! Cleveland should be able to run the ball that will open up some passing lanes!
