Head-to-Head Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Being division rivals, the Browns and Steelers have played several times over the years –  the sample size of their head-to-head matchups is significant.

The Browns are 1-0 following a surprisingly emphatic win over a presumed title contender in the Cincinnati Bengals. Jim Schwartz, in his first game as the team’s defensive coordinator, coached a unit that clamped down Joe Burrow and company en route to the 24-3 win. The Browns’ offense remains an incomplete project, but they controlled the game with over 200 yards on 40 rushing attempts.

The Steelers spent Week 1 being embarrassed at home by another presumed title contender in the San Francisco 49ers. The offense made several mistakes – including two interceptions by Kenny Pickett – while the defense failed to contain Christian McCaffrey and Brandon Aiyuk in the 7-30 loss.

Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers Predictions

It’s a rare occurrence that the Browns are favored on the road against the Steelers – and it’d be the first time in several years if they delivered on the oddsmakers’ prediction and left Pittsburgh with a win on Monday. Bettors who expect a return to normalcy from Week 1 might be interested in taking the Steelers to win and cover. Bettors who watched the Browns’ defense in Week 1 and still expect a broader regression to the mean will be highly tempted to take the under.

Prediction: Under 39.5
