Riding a three-game winning streak, the Cleveland Browns will look to keep it going on Sunday when they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Browns are a slim 2.5-point road favorite against the Steelers at Bovada Sportsbook. Last week Cleveland made it three straight wins by crushing the Miami Dolphins 41-24 as an 11-point favorite. On the road the Browns have lost three straight both straight up and against the spread, and they’re 1-3 SU in their last four as a road favorite.
Pittsburgh has been a bad bet at home in December at 1-6 ATS in its last seven. The Steelers have been a strong UNDER play lately at 7-2 UNDER in their last nine games.
