3 Reasons Why the Steelers Will Upset the Browns
I can’t figure out why the Browns are such large favorites. Has FanDuel forgotten this is Cleveland we’re talking about?
After letting the Jets pull off a miracle in Week 2, the Browns now haven’t covered the spread as a favorite in five consecutive games. Over their last 18 in this spot, they’re 5-13 against the spread. They needed a 58-yard field goal at the end of regulation to beat the hapless Panthers in Week 1, and Pittsburgh is much better than Carolina.
Even without TJ Watt, Pittsburgh’s defense is playing at an elite level. The Patriots essentially had one good offensive play, a 44-yard touchdown to Nelson Agholor, but their other score came after a muffed putt. Otherwise, the Steelers’ defense dominated the game. New England averaged only 4.0 yards per carry after the Bengals averaged 3.9, so Pittsburgh should keep Cleveland’s running game in check.
If the Browns can’t rely on Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt to move the ball, Jacoby Brissett hasn’t shown he can lead an effective offense. He’s averaging just 6.2 yards per passing attempt, which would have easily been the NFL’s worst mark last year.
Rely on Pittsburgh’s defense to propel the Steelers to victory.
Mike Tomlin’s Track Record as an Underdog
Mike Tomlin is an elite coach, plain and simple. The Steelers are 20-8-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 30 games as an underdog and 16-7 ATS in their last 23 as road underdogs.
They’ve had two straight road upsets and, given Cleveland’s tendency to invent ways to lose, we’re getting incredible value on Tomlin to do what he always does: give Pittsburgh a great chance to win.
Don’t hesitate to fire up the Steelers at +194 odds, especially once you’ve got that $1,000 no-sweat bet from FanDuel at your disposal. This offer won’t last, so claim your $1,000 risk-free bet before it’s too late and let’s bring home the bacon.
