The Cleveland Browns will play host to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night as both teams seek to stay atop the early AFC North standings.
Both teams are also coming off tough Week 2 losses.
Pittsburgh fell at home 17-14 to the New England Patriots, while Cleveland suffered a meltdown that saw the Browns blow a 13-point lead with 1:55 remaining against the visiting New York Jets.
Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said there is no time for his team to dwell on the loss, and Cleveland enters the game as a 4.0-point favorite at BetRivers and DraftKings. The Steelers have been backed by 44 percent of the spread bets and 55 percent of the money at the former and 67 and 63 percent, respectively, at the latter.
The line opened at 3.5 points at BetMGM but has moved to 4.5 with the Steelers drawing 66 percent of the bets and 64 percent of the handle.
Kickoff at FirstEnergy Stadium is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Prime Video.
The Browns haven’t covered the spread in their past eight games as favorites against AFC North rivals, while the underdog has outright won the past three games in the series. We think Cleveland wins the game, but in a dogfight. –Browns 23, Steelers 20
