This will be the second time that Pittsburgh meets with the Browns this season. In the first matchup, they lost in Cleveland on Thursday Night Football and failed to cover the spread for the game. However, the over for the game did hit after a late game fumble touchdown pushed it over the mark.
The Steelers are 10-6-1 against the spread thus far on the season. Pittsburgh will now be favorites for the second time in three weeks, following a true outright win after being underdogs to the Ravens early in the week.
The Steelers odds are thus becoming increasingly friendlier to them as they have racked up wins throughout the season. Now at 8-8, Pittsburgh stands a chance to make the playoffs for the third consecutive season. However, they will need some help from both the Bills and Jets in order to make that vision a reality.
Pittsburgh are 3-1 as favorites outright and against the spread. They lost to Baltimore to cover their lone loss. The Steelers are 1-1 as home favorites.
Cleveland was favored by -4.5 against the Steelers in the first game and won by 12. On the season, the Browns are 5-4 against the spread and four of those were outright victories. As road underdogs, they are 3-2 against the spread with two outright victories.
The Browns have not swept the season series against the Steelers since the 1988 season.
