Why Bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers?
The Steelers have one of the league’s top defenses. Only one team has scored 30 points against the Pittsburgh Steelers D.
C.J. Stroud and the Texans dropped 30 against T.J. Watt and the Steelers D in an earlier Pittsburgh loss. Since allowing Stroud and Houston to dominate, the Steelers defense has stepped it up.
Baltimore scored 10, the Rams scored 17 the Jags dropped 20, Tennessee scored 16, and Green Bay scored 17. Pittsburgh won all those games except the contest against Jacksonville.
The Steelers offense isn’t flashy, but it’s started to gel with the defense. What we mean is that Pittsburgh’s offense plays a style that supports the Steelers D.
Kenny Pickett, Najee Harris and the rest eat up clock and set up Pittsburgh for scores. If the score is a TD, great. If not, the Steelers have the luxury of settling for field goals because the defense is so good.
Why Bet on the Cleveland Browns?
The Browns defense can flat out control an opponent. But although Myles Garrett has NFL Hall of Fame talent and the rest of the defense is exceptional, the D sometimes fails to live up to the hype.
Joe Burrow and the Bengals scored 27 in Cleveland’s last. Earlier in the season, the Colts scored 38. Baltimore scored 28, Pittsburgh scored 26, and Seattle scored 24 in Cleveland losses.
With Deshaun Watson, the Browns offense can be all world. But without Deshaun, Cleveland’s offense can struggle.
When it comes to this game, neither P.J. Walker nor Dorian Thompson-Robinson should beat Pittsburgh’s defense. So Cleveland will employ an offensive strategy based around running back Jerome Ford and short passes to Elijah Moore and Amari Cooper.

Steelers vs. Browns Expert Betting Predictions
Browns versus Steelers is one of the best rivalries in all of sports. The X-factor in the rivalry is Mike Tomlin’s ability to get the Steelers to stick to his script.
Kevin Stefanski is a good head coach. But the offense and defense don’t always buy in to his strategies. Tomlin has his guys playing together like a well-oiled machine. Pittsburgh has thrown down the gauntlet in the AFC North and only the Bengals appear capable of picking up that gauntlet and unleashing their sword.
The Steelers win this straight up. Pickett and the offense will set up the defense to dominate Walker or Thompson-Robinson. Pittsburgh money line is the play. If the Steelers end up the ATS favorite, lay the points.
