Free NFL Pick:
The Pittsburgh Steelers played their backups in the season finale while the Cleveland Browns used all their resources to secure a playoff spot, and the Steelers still only lost by 2 points. The Pittsburgh Steelers are very impressive on the defensive side of the ball as they are holding their opponents to an average of 19.5 PPG which ranks 3rd in the NFL, and defense wins championships. The Browns defense has been banged up all season, but the Pittsburgh offense clicked in the 2nd half against the Indianapolis Colts during week 16, and I expect their Hall of Fame QB in Ben Roethlisberger to feel more comfortable than Baker Mayfield who is playing in his 1st playoff game. Final Score Prediction, Pittsburgh Steelers win and cover ATS 28-17.
