Free Pick: Cleveland 7-8 vs. Pittsburgh 7-7-1 1/3/22

This is a game that may not mean a thing to depending on what happens on Sunday. If Cincinnati beats the Chiefs, these two teams are all but eliminated. Both of them are coming off of disappointing seasons and this could very well be the last home game for future Hall-of-Famer, Ben Roethlisberger. So there could be a lot on the line for the playoffs, or plenty of nostalgia concerning Roethlisberger. Let’s look at what the lines are.



Pittsburgh: 19.5 Total Team Points The Steelers are scoring 20 points per game and they have struggled all season. They have very little in the way of a running game and teams have teed off on Big Ben. They are going up against a Cleveland defense that has stood up well against most teams. I’m taking Pittsburgh UNDER 19.5 Total Team Points

Cleveland: 21.5 Total Team Points The Browns played pretty well last week against Green Bay, but a couple of missed calls, and Baker Mayfield’s 4 interceptions, led to a 24-22 loss to the heavily favored Packers. Mayfield has been playing hurt most of the season and needs to come up with an improved effort in this one. Look for a steady dose of running back, Nick Chubb who has rushed for 1,143 yards despite missing 3 games. The Pittsburgh defense has been poor all year and Cleveland needs to take advantage of it. . I like Cleveland UNDER 21.5 points.

OVER/UNDER 41 Total Combined Team Points I see this as a low-scoring game, somewhere in the 20-17, 17-14 range. I would bet the UNDER.

POINT SPREAD: Cleveland is a 3-point favorite It’s hard to believe the Browns are favored in Pittsburgh. This shows us how unimpressed Vegas is with the Steelers. We feel the exact way about Cleveland. They usually find a way to lose these kinds of games.

AARON’S PICK: Pittsburgh +3

PAPA DUDES PICK: Cleveland UNDER 21.5 team points
