Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Browns march into this AFC North rivalry with an eye-catching 4-1 record. Although Baker Mayfield hasn’t played that great, the Browns have put themselves in a position to compete for the No. 1 spot in the division. Most of the leg work has been done by their No. 1 ranked running game, which will once again have to carry the load against the Steelers. Both teams rank in the top 10 in scoring so hopefully, this one doesn’t disappoint.
Naturally, this matchup reminds us of the infamous Myles Garrett helmet swing. While it’s doubtful we’ll see something of that magnitude here, there will be some nasty blows exchanged here. And who will come out on top once it’s all said and done? Super Bowl Odds -winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
This looks like the game of the week. Two AFC North heavyweights clash as the Cleveland Browns (4-1) try to hand the Pittsburgh Steelers (4-0) their first loss. Both teams are riding four-game win streaks into Heinz Field on Sunday, but only one will emerge victorious (and cover the spread!).
Since Week 2 vs Cincinnati, Cleveland has been in shootout-mode, scoring at least 32 points in its last four games. The Browns have covered in their previous three games, and this is a great opportunity to take points in a tense divisional rivalry. Cleveland’s offense seems to click no matter who is plugged into the lineup, and the Browns’ D is averaging 3.3 takeaways over their last three games. Ride the wave, take Cleveland with the points.
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
QB Baker Mayfield finished the game against the Indianapolis Colts with some rib discomfort, but he already said that he’s going to be on the field for this AFC North matchup.
The Cleveland Browns scored 32 points against a good defense, and did it without RB Nick Chubb.
The Browns average 31.2 points per game (fourth best in the league) and the total has gone over in five of Cleveland’s last six games.
Few predicted that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be heading into Week 6 unbeaten, but they are.
Ben Roethlisberger has found new weapons in WR’s Chase Claypool and Ray-Ray McCloud.
The Steelers average 29.5 games and the total has gone under in nine of Pittsburgh’s last 12 games. You can expect some fireworks here, go over.
