1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 47 +100 (risk 1.5 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Pittsburgh Steelers playoff destiny was in their own hands prior to last week, and it appeared to be a very easy path to the playoffs needing wins vs. lowly Baltimore and Cleveland. Those plans were derailed in a shocking loss last week at the hands of the Ravens. They now have to win and hope against a Cleveland team thay have beaten in 27 times in the last 31 meetings. It may sound easy, but that was the case a week ago as well. The Browns may not beat the Steelers very often, but what they have done is defend this team as good or better than any other team. The Steelers have averaged just 21.9 points per game in the last 48 meetings, but unfortunately for Cleveland, they have seldom had the answer for the Pittsburgh defense scoring just 13.8 points per game in the 48 meetings. Surprisingly, the total here is higher than at any point in the last nine meetings, and the total in those nine meetings has made it over the top just one time, with an average of just 34.3 total points scored. This will be another war, make the play on the UNDER.
