The Pittsburgh Steelers need a win and two other games to go their way in the final week of the season. Here are our predictions and their odds against the Browns.
There was no better way to end New Year’s day than with a comeback win in primetime against the Baltimore Ravens. Despite a running game that was firing on cylinders, the Pittsburgh Steelers struggled to put points on the board until the fourth quarter. However, an 11-play, 80-yard, game-winning touchdown from Kenny Pickett had fans on their feet.
Now Mike Tomlin’s team will look to finish the season strong, but they are going to need some help from the Bills and Jets in order to sneak into the post-season. Here are the Steelers vs Browns odds for Week 18 and our predictions for the season finale.
Steelers vs Browns Odds Week 18
The Pittsburgh Steelers open the week as 2.5-point home favorites over the Cleveland Browns, according to Fanduel Sportsbook. Tomlin’s team has a moneyline of -156 and the over/under for this game is currently set at 39.5 points. After kickoff time was yet to be decided, these two teams will square off at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh.
Steelers vs Browns Predictions Week 18
Fans were clearly counting the Steelers out too early. We should have known that Mike Tomlin would uphold his reputation as he fights his way back to a winning record. In the final week of the season, Pittsburgh has much more to play for than Cleveland. At 7-9, the Browns have already been eliminated from the playoff contention, and while they would love nothing more to destroy the dreams of the Steelers, the home team will want this win even more.
Tomlin knows what’s on the line here. He’s got a pretty healthy team that has been red hot since their Week 9 bye and they will be fired up to play. Though it will require two other games to go their way (which will be played simultaneously), we believe the Steelers will do their part this week as they try to claw their way into the playoffs.
We have Pittsburgh claiming a 20-17 win in their season finale, and we are taking the Steelers moneyline this week.
