It was only a matter of time before I started to turn this season around. After struggling in mediocrity, I can finally say, I’m back. After going a 8-1 Combined on picks last week for the Big Dog and Rich Homie, it’s pretty clear we are primed to finish the season on a heater. If you are my bookie you might want to close your eyes for this next part, because I again love the board this week. Also might I say, I got hot at the perfect time, because if I continued to lose, I would have been giving free hug coupons for Christmas.
Tonight we have an AFC North matchup between the Stillers and Brownies in what Cleveland can only hope is Freddie Kitchens last game as coach. The Steelers have had a knack for killing Browns coaches and I think all of Cleveland is hoping that trend continues here. The Browns have been one of the great disappointments this year reminding me a lot of the ’11 Eagles. There were multiple people paid to analyze the NFL who had the Browns making the super bowl. What they didn’t account for was Bakers refusal to throw it to his own team in the red zone and Freddie Kitchens general incompetence. The Steelers on the other hand have been one of the great surprises of the season. When Ben went down many thought this would be a lost year but their defense has been able to win them multiple games and has kept them in the thick of the playoff race. I think the safe bet here is the Under 41.5. The Steelers, while winning have not scored more than 27 in a game. Besides their beat down of Baltimore, the Browns season high is 28. I think this will be a game dominated by field goals and will stay under. Pick: Under 41.5 Prediction: CLE 21 PITT 20
