The underdog has dominated the number between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns as they have gone 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the midst of a 4-game win streak, and a huge reason for their success has been their defense as they have been able to force turnovers and put points on the board. The Steelers have been without their star RB James Connor the last two games, but they will have him back for this game which is a big help as he has compiled 616 scrimmage yards and 6 TDs. DB Minkah Fitzpatrick has been the star of the defense, but the pass rush is arguably one of the best in the NFL with T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree. Cleveland is coming off an impressive win, but this team has been inconsistent all season and I can’t back them in this spot. Final Score Prediction, Pittsburgh Steelers win and cover ATS 24-21.
