ANALYSIS

Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Game Pick: TNF Prediction and Odds

Hold your nose tonight because we have a stinker on our hands. After two great matchups (even though one didn't live up to it) including last week's thriller between KC and the Chargers, we have a really nasty one tonight.

The rivalry is still the rivalry but with no Deshaun Watson, no Big Ben, and no TJ Watt and Clowney on defense, this game isn't what it could have been. We have the Browns who must still be shell-shocked after the 90 seconds of disgusting play against the Jets cost them a 2-0 start versus the Steelers who have no offense to speak of or they could be 2-0. So the question tonight is which one of these 1-1 teams will take over first place in the division and which one will be under .500 for possibly a long time this season.

Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Prediction

The Browns have to forget about Sunday and do it fast with this Thursday night game because their meltdown was one of the worst you will ever see and hadn't happened since the old version of the Browns did it. They can talk all they want about Chubb taking a knee but he didn't because he knows his fantasy guys need a touchdown and his salary depends on it. Everyone is blaming Chubb but let's not forget their kicker missed an extra point(do you think that point mattered?).

Chubb is taking the blame as he said but this man has been their best player this season. "Yeah, I probably shouldn't have scored right there," Chubb told reporters. "Honestly, looking back at it, it cost us the game. A lot of things went wrong, not just one thing. But collectively as a unit, as a team, we could've all done things differently. But it's only a problem because we didn't win. So I probably should've gone down."

The Steelers have their own issues as they are an abysmal offense (30th in the league and they had an overtime game to get them more offense) and as good as their defense is missing Watt will affect them tonight. Will Trubisky last the night as they were screaming Kenny Pickett (rookie backup) all second half last week? Trubisky is averaging 5.1 yards a  completion which is pretty much the same as him running a few yards as that completion % won't keep your job which is why it's 32nd worst out of 33 QBs this year.

It might help if they scored in the first half as they have one offensive touchdown in the first half so far this year (one defensive too) and that is not scaring anyone on the other sidelines.

Trubisky has 362 yards and 2 touchdowns on the year. Last week the Dolphins QB Tua had that pretty much in one-fourth quarter against the Ravens. Najee Harris, their star running back, who was supposed to step up this year, has 72 yards and a 2.9 average rushing on the season. George Pickens, their star rookie receiver has two catches this team is not scaring anyone on offense. 

There is no other word to describe this game other than ugly. A lot of injuries including Watt and Clowney on defense, offensive guys are not 100% and they don't scare anyone anyway. The props on this game are hilarious at how low the offensive numbers are on everyone including the two QBs as they are both in the 180-yard range of passing yards. If you must play this Thursday night game we feel the best thing to do is to tease it so we get the best line available.

The Browns are at home and have played better this year clearly in their two games than the Steelers have so we feel confident in backing the Browns in our teaser as well as the under getting the best line versus a bad line. We are going to do a 7-point teaser so that we can get the Browns from -3.5 to +3.5 which is huge to have a home dog getting a field goal and we will take the under 38.5 and make it 45.5 which is a very key # in the NFL. This teaser is -130 as we are taking the Browns +3.5 and under 45.5 you should have a no-sweat winner tonight on Amazon Prime.
