Game Analysis & Picks
Pittsburgh and Cleveland average a combined 46.5 points after the first 2 games of the season but the current game total of 38.5 is the lowest of the week with high winds of up to 25 mph expected at kickoff. Heading into Week 3, there are no new game impact injuries to report for Pittsburgh after placing T.J. Watt on IR last week but the Browns will be without 2 defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney & Chase Winovich. Getting pressure on the QB won’t be as impactful tonight though as I can’t imagine either coach will trust Mitch Trubisky or Jacoby Brissett to air it out if wind gusts are as expected. Nick Chubb and Najee Harris fantasy owners will love watching this one as both should flirt with 30+ touches.
It’s an awkward -4.5 point spread, some call it the ‘Vegas Zone’ as in even bookmakers don’t really know if the game will be close or not, and to be honest, I don’t either. Historically and generally speaking, when these teams meet it’s intense, but also pretty boring unless you’re a big blocking and tackling fan. My favorite bets are the bonus props below, but for regular game action I’ll lean PIT +4.5 with the game total under 38.5. Fun!!!
– Najee Harris (PIT) – Over 14.5 Rush Attempts (+102)
– Nick Chubb (CLE) – Over 16.5 Rush Attempts (-108)
