Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns Week 8 Betting Odds: Steelers Small Underdogs In Big AFC North Battle

Written By Katie Kohler on October 26, 2021

The Pittsburgh Steelers rode a two-game winning streak into their Week 7 bye. They face a crucial midseason AFC North test in Week 8 when they visit the Cleveland Browns. The Steelers (3-3) sit in last place in the division and the Browns are ahead of them at 4-3. The surprising Bengals (5-2) and Ravens (5-2) lead a competitive AFC North.

Baker Mayfield missed the Browns Week 7 Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos with a left shoulder injury. Journeyman quarterback Case Keenum got the start against the Broncos and the Browns pulled out a 17-14 win. As of early in the week, Mayfield’s status for Week 8 is still uncertain.

Sports betting apps opened with the Steelers as 3.5-point underdogs with the total points line at 42.
