Pittsburgh Steelers Analysis: The Steelers finished the 2017 season with a 13-3 record. This was tied for the best record in the NFL. However, they were eliminated from the playoffs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs by the Jacksonville Jaguars The Jags beat the Steelers twice at Heinz Field last year.

Despite their early playoff exit, the Steelers are considered one of the best teams in the league. Also, they have the third-best odds to win the Super Bowl this year.

The Steelers will go into this game with a sense of déjà vu. This is so because they are in a similar situation as last season. Le’Veon Bell, whom the team used the franchise tag on has still not reported to the team. Bell will likely get off to a slow start like he did last year when he eventually reports.

Due to Bell’s lack of fitness at the start of last season, the Steelers struggled against the Browns in their season opener, and they will probably have the same problem on Sunday. Enjoy these Steelers vs Browns betting picks.

Cleveland Browns Analysis: The Browns have been the laughing stock of the league for quite some time, and they didn’t do their reputation any favors in the last two seasons, winning only one game in that span. After going 0-16 last year, the Browns have nowhere to go but up, so expect them to be a dangerous team this year.

The Browns upgraded their quarterback position by trading for Tyrod Taylor and drafting Baker Mayfield with the top pick in the draft this year. They also upgraded their running back position by signing Carlos Hyde and drafting Nick Chubb in the second round.

Cleveland also upgraded its defense with the addition of Denzel Ward, who is expected to make an impact this year. With Myles Garrett and Jabrill Peppers improving from last year, the Browns will surprise a lot of people this year.

NFL Week 1 Picks and Predictions: The Steelers are favored to win this game by 4.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 46.5.

In conclusion last year the Steelers struggled in their season opener against a team that went 0-16. This year, the Browns are much improved and they will make a statement with a win over the Steelers on opening day.
