Pittsburgh at Cleveland

Sunday 09/09 01:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on Cleveland +4.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95)  RESULT: WIN

The Cleveland Browns look to over-turn the bad fortunes of having gone 1-31 over the last two seasons. There is a good chance they will as they have fortified the defense some but upgraded in a big way on offense. The Browns brought over Tyrod Taylor to stabilize an offense that started all 16 games last season with a QB that has never won an NFL game. Turnovers were an absolute killer for the Browns, as it is for any team. Taylor does one thing very well - he does not turn the ball over very often at all. Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon give the Browns Pro Bowl caliber receivers, Chubb, Hyde, and Johnson are a good trio to find a winner offensive in the backfield. Pittsburgh looks like they will open the season without Le'veon Bell, and he drives the offense, often setting up Big Ben with play action. His absence will be sorely missed, and even if he signs at the last minute, he has not taken any reps at all. Cleveland will be fired up to get a win, and this one is a lot closer than it looks. Take the points on Cleveland.
