The Steelers have an outside chance of making the playoffs and the Browns would certainly like to extinguish that hope for their division rival. Both teams have seen their defenses improve significantly over the second half of the season as they have seen improved health in their star players, namely TJ Watt and Myles Garrett. DeShaun Watson finally showed flashes of his talent that have been missing since he took over the starting QB spot five weeks ago. For Pittsburgh, rookie Kenny Pickett has also shown why he is the future in Steel City, but it has not been reflected on the scoreboard. Both teams are comfortable in an old-fashioned AFC North rock fight. The Browns have played to the under in six straight while the Steelers have done so in four of five. This line should be closer to 38 and we’ll take the line value and play the under 40.5, currently being dealt at BetOnline.
Prediction: Under 40.5
