The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to have caught a major break in Week 11 -- at least in the eyes of oddsmakers.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been ruled out for the season, as he needs to undergo surgery on a broken bone in his throwing shoulder. With Watson out, the Browns will now have to turn to a new face at quarterback in Week 11 against Pittsburgh.

Watson's injury caused a gigantic shift in the odds for this week's game between the two AFC North rivals.

Pittsburgh was a four-point underdog as early as Wednesday morning. After the Watson news broke, the Steelers moved to two-point dogs, but the line has moved all the way to a pick'em in the latest odds.

Bettors are hammering the Steelers, who are now -1 in this game at BetMGM. More than 70 percent of bettors are wagering on Pittsburgh to wn this game.

A key reason may be the Browns' decision to start rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson at quarterback in Week 11. The team had previous used veteran P.J. Walker after Thompson-Robinson fell flat in his first career start against the Baltimore Ravens.

While he was electric in the preseason, Thompson-Robinson still has a lot to learn, and he has to face a fierce Steelers defense that is among the best in the NFL at forcing turnovers.

With bettors flocking to bet on the Steelers, it's possible the team could move to an even larger favorite before the game kicks off on Sunday.
