With this site being a Pittsburgh Steelers site, you might be wondering where are the odds for the black and gold as they head to Cleveland to play the Browns in Week 1? Relax, it is the main focus of the article.

Pittsburgh Steelers (-8.5, 47) @ Cleveland Browns

The Steelers are 8.5-point favorites over the Browns, and while those are heavy odds in today’s NFL, especially for a road team, many fans might wonder why the spread isn’t higher. To those fans it is worth reminding that these lines are fluid. They will change between now and the start of the regular season.

What could possibly change? Well, the NFL Draft is this upcoming weekend, and if either team hits the ball out of the park, it could cause the line to change. But the biggest reason for lines to change is due to injury. If a key member of either team suffers an injury during training camp, or the NFL Preseason, the line will naturally be adjusted accordingly.

With that said, if you like the Steelers giving the Browns 8-points and the hook, place your bet before the line changes.
