Week 17 Odds: Steelers vs Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown

After a massive letdown in Week 16 that saw them lose 20-17 to the Ravens as 11.5 point favorites, the Steelers will be fighting for their playoff lives when they visit the Browns on Sunday. Luckily the Steelers have a long history of completely demolishing the Browns, winning 21 of their last 24 games against them.

Shark Bites
  • The Browns are 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS in their last eight games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Steelers' last eight games on the road.
  • Johnny Manziel threw for 372 yards and one TD vs the Steelers in Week 10.

Another thing Steelers backers have going for them is the team’s strong play in January games, as they’ve gone 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games in the month. The teams met earlier in the season with the Steelers winning easily—30-9. Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown scorched the Browns for a combined 317 yards and three touchdowns.

The Browns managed to keep things close vs the Chiefs in Week 16, but ultimately lost 17-13. It’s been another season to forget in Cleveland as the team will once again be near the top of the draft board in April. The team also hasn’t done their backers any favors, as they’ve gone 2-7 ATS in their last nine games.

The Steelers enter the game as 11 point favorites—only the fifth time since 1995 that they’ve been a road favorite of 11 points or more. Also of note regarding the spread (and another depressing note for Browns fans), this is the largest home dog Cleveland has been since 2009.
