The Pittsburgh Steelers have a tendency to play down to their opponents, and while Cleveland Browns have lost the last six meetings, none of the last three were decided by more than four points.
The Browns are just 1-31 overall over the last two seasons, but this is a very different side with 31 players on the roster who weren’t there last year.
Their new quarterback duo, Tyrod Taylor and No. 1 overall pick Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, should feed off each other and can do plenty of damage this season. Cleveland also has added running back Carlos Hyde, who’s coming off a good season with the 49ers where he had a career-high 1,288 scrimmage yards and eight rushing touchdowns.
Pittsburgh will be without running back Le’Veon Bell as he as of Friday had yet to report to the team, still holding out for a new contract. That leaves the Steelers very one-dynamic and Cleveland can put all focus on shutting down QB Ben Roethlisberger.
Steelers are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall, and I think this is too many points to cover on the road.
Free pick on Cleveland Browns.
