Browns-Steelers Could Have Lowest Over/Under of Last Decade After Deshaun Watson Injury

CLEVELAND, OH (Gambling911.com) - Oddsmakers believe the Browns-Steelers game this coming weekend will be among the lowest-scoring NFL games of the last decade following Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a broken bone in his shoulder.  He will be out for the remainder of the season.

Cleveland will start rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson at quarterback.  Neither side has much in the way of an offense.

The Steelers have held their opponents to 20 or fewer points in each of their past five games.  Pittsburgh also leads the league in takeaways and sacks.

The Browns come into this game as the league leader in yards allowed per game (142.7) and are tied for the fifth-most sacks (30).

The total on this game was coming in at 32 after opening at 37.5

It was just two weeks ago that the Rutgers-Iowa game featured the lowest total on record, 28.  That game did end with a 22-0 score as the Hawkeyes shut out Rutgers.

Unlike that matchup where the betting public scoffed at the notion of a game falling under the 28, gamblers this go-around are backing the UNDER at around a 70% clip.

Ex-Alabama Baseball Coach, Associate Banned From Ohio Sportsbooks

COLUMBUS, OH (Gambling911.com) - The Ohio Casino Control Commission confirmed to NBC4 that former Alabama baseball coach Brad Bohannon and Indiana businessman Bert Neff Jr. have been added to the sports gaming involuntary exclusion list, banning them from sportsbooks in the state.

The University of Alabama fired Bohannon in May after "suspicious betting" activity was observed on a game between that school and LSU.  Regulators in Ohio promptly ordered sportsbooks to stop taking bets on Alabama baseball moving forward as a result.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission's investigation is centered on two bets on the Tigers to win from the same unidentified customer, multiple industry sources told ESPN.  The Louisiana Gaming Commission said those bets were placed somewhere in the Cincinnati area, information later to be found accurate.
