Best bets for Monday Night Football: Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Cleveland Browns to wrap up Week 17 on Monday Night Football (8:15 ET on ESPN).
This week, ESPN betting analysts Erin Dolan, Anita Marks, Eric Moody and Joe Fortenbaugh, along with Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz, offer up their best bets.
Odds courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook as of Sunday, unless otherwise noted.
Cleveland Browns (-3.5, 40.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers
Dolan: The first-half total of under 20 currently sits at plus money at Caesars. It’s not often you can find props at plus money, so I am grabbing it. The Steelers have been terrible at scoring in the first half. In fact, Pittsburgh has averaged just 2.0 points per game in the first half over its last five. The last time Ben Roethlisberger threw a touchdown pass in the first half was against the Chargers on Nov. 21.
In short, it takes time for Big Ben to get rolling in games.
