Sport: NFL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 45
Pick
Under 51.5 (-120) @ Betamerica

At 1 pm, our selection is on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns to go 'under' the total.  The posted total for this game is the biggest number in the history of the series.  Indeed, until this game, the highest over/under number for this rivalry was 47.5.  Last season, these two teams played extremely low-scoring games (21-7, 20-13) that each went 'under' the total.  But this year -- so far -- the two teams have been involved in high-scoring affairs.  Pittsburgh's last three games have gone 'over' the number (26-21, 28-21, 38-29), while Cleveland's last four have gone 'over' (35-30, 34-20, 49-38, 32-23).  However, since 1980, NFL games with over/under lines less than 56 have gone 'under' the total 60% of the time (86-58-6) if both teams played their two previous games 'over,' and each of those games generated more than 47 points.  Additionally, the Steelers have gone 'under' 8 straight times after playing a game with 50+ points scored, while Cleveland is 13-4 'under' after a game that produced 50+ points.  Take the 'under.'  10* play.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks.
