The CBS Sportsline proprietory prediction model has the big win of the week being a Steelers cover of -8 against Cleveland (Sorry Browns fans).

From CBS Sports:

Le'Veon Bell didn't return over the bye week as some expected, but the model doesn't see that slowing a rested Steelers team against a Cleveland squad that has lost three of four.

Ben Roethlisberger throws for over 300 yards, according to the model, while James Conner has 100 yards of total offense as Pittsburgh covers in the spread in almost 55 percent of simulations. The model is also calling for 52 total points, giving plenty of value to the over (49). 

As for the model itself, it went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool players in 2016 and '17.
