MNF Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers First TD Scorer Bets: Win Big With These Picks at Betfred
Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers Prediction: Hit The First Touchdown of the Game at Betfred
The Cleveland Browns will hit the road to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in what should be an exciting Monday Night Football game. The Browns and Steelers are unable to win the AFC North division after Cincinnati finished on top yesterday.
Meanwhile, the Browns and Steelers aren't officially eliminated from the playoff picture just yet. For both teams, it's not going to be easy to sneak in, but with two wins for either team, there's a chance.
Anyway, we're looking to hit on the first touchdown scorer of the game. So let's get right to it.

Browns vs Steelers First Scorer Picks
Option 1: Nick Chubb (+550)
The Pittsburgh Steelers have become one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Pittsburgh has allowed 24.7 points per game while giving up over 385 yards per game on the defensive end. We've never seen a Steelers defense this bad before. Pittsburgh has allowed 142.7 yards per game on the ground and the Browns have been much better on the ground than in the passing game this season. Pittsburgh allows big chunks of yardage on plenty of rushing plays this season, so why can't Chubb set the tone with the first touchdown of the game? He's got eight on the season and probably would have more if the Browns were more competitive this season.
Option 2: Najee Harris (+500)
The Steelers rarely ran the football with new prized running back Najee Harris earlier this year. But recently, Harris has been given a chance and he's been succeeding with six touchdowns on the year. He's been getting about 20 carries on normal days and has averaged 4.7 or more yards per game in two of his last three. Harris hasn't scored a touchdown in the last two weeks, so he's certainly due. With Ben Roethlisberger making his final start of his career in Pittsburgh (most likely), the Steelers' offense might be pretty alive for tonight's game. Once the Steelers start off hot, Harris could be the guy to put the ball in the end zone.
Option 3: Pat Freiermuth (+1100)
The Browns have been a solid defense all year, allowing under 22 points per game In the passing game, the Browns allow just 230.2 yards per game. However, if there's one area where the Browns struggle defending, it's against tight ends. Pat Freiermuth has become Roethlisberger's favorite target this season and he's always looking for the big tight end around the goal line. If this is truly Roethlisberger's final game in Pittsburgh, out of respect, Pittsburgh might call for a play-action pass to the tight-end to pad Roethlisberger's stats a little bit as a thank you. I could be reaching here, but either way, Freiermuth has seven touchdowns on the season and is tied with Dionte Johnson for the Pittsburgh lead in touchdown receptions. So why not give Freiermuth a shot here?
