Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers week 5 picks

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers, -14, 38

With a week to prepare, Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be
ready to go when they face the confused Eric Mangini and the Cleveland Browns.
With a line that opened up around 12 and is now sitting around 14, Vegas cannot
seem to give the public enough points to consider Cleveland here. The public will
be falling in love with a beautiful situation, in which a team with the best defense in
football gets their starting quarterback back from suspension and a week to prepare
for a home game versus the Browns.

The only reason the over/under in this game is not 25 [just kidding], is because
the Steelers are getting the heart and soul of their offense back. Roethlisberger
in his career has 17 total touchdowns and 8 interceptions against the Browns; I
am seeing “Big Ben” doing something like 3 TD’s and 1 INT next week versus the
Browns. The over/under will come down to what the Browns offense decides to do;
if Pittsburgh does its usual steel curtain, the Browns will be lucky to score a TD and
in that case you have to love the under here.

The Browns have played their last two divisional opponents to a very close game
[Bengals and Ravens], but for some reason I just do not see that happening in
Pittsburgh with Roethlisberger coming back. The Steelers will score early and often
and the Browns will be forced to throw the ball and they will turn it over multiple
times. The smart money goes with the Steelers and the under on Sunday and look
for Peyton Hillis to come down to earth as well.
