Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Line

Sportsbook.com has the Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers betting line at Pittsburgh -14, Total: 37.5

Ben Roethlisberger returns from suspension to make his 2010 debut against a team he has dominated. The Steelers are 10-1 against the Browns with Big Ben starting under center, though that one loss was their last meeting, in Cleveland last December.

The Browns will also have a fresh face under center. Rookie Colt McCoy has been told he will be the starter on Sunday since both Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are suffering from high ankle sprains. Speaking of injuries, Cleveland’s best offensive player, RB Peyton Hillis, is dealing with a quad injury that may keep him out of action Sunday.

Roethlisberger couldn’t ask for a better matchup in his season opener, with his team coming off a bye, playing at home against a Cleveland team starting a rookie QB. Even if Big Ben doesn’t play well, the Browns will have a very difficult time moving the football against the Steelers’ top-ranked scoring defense allowing just 12.5 PPG. If Hillis (350 rush yds, 4.6 YPC) can’t play, Jerome Harrison (2.9 YPC) will be asked to move the football against the best run defense in the league (62 rush YPG).

Despite Pittsburgh’s recent ownership of Cleveland, football betting fans profited off the Browns in this match-up recently. Cleveland is 4-1 ATS versus Pittsburgh in their last five games.

Pittsburgh, coming off a bye, last played two weeks ago when they were upset by division foe Baltimore.  Those that bet on the NFL shouldn’t be concerned though.

PITTSBURGH is 13-2 ATS (+10.8 Units) in home games off an upset loss to a division rival as a favorite since 1992. The average score was PITTSBURGH 24.7, OPPONENT 14.9 - (Rating = 2*).

This NFL betting trend indicates that this game will not be an offensive showcase, making the Under a solid play.

CLEVELAND is 9-0 UNDER (+9.0 Units) off a non-conference game over the last 3 seasons. The average score was CLEVELAND 8.1, OPPONENT 17.8 - (Rating = 4*).
