Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns Odds
- Pittsburgh Steelers +4.5
- Cleveland Browns -4.5
The matchup to watch as far as WRs go is Amari Cooper of the Cleveland Browns vs. Diontae Johnson of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Total Receiving Yards Odds – Amari Cooper
- Over 51.5 -115
- Under 51.5 -115
Cooper, who was acquired from the Dallas Cowboys over the offseason, has -115 odds on either side of his 51.5 receiving yards O/U.
Cooper put up 101 yards in his most recent game against the New York Jets, but only 17 yards against the Carolina Panthers.
Total Receiving Yards Odds – Diontae Johnson
- Over 58.5 -115
- Under 58.5 -115
Diontae Johnson is projected to be the most prolific receiver in this game, with -115 odds to go both over and under 58.5 receiving yards.
Johnson put up 55 yards and 57 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots respectively.
Total Receptions Odds – Amari Cooper
- Over 4.5 +125
- Under 4.5 -165
Neither WR is expected to catch that many passes, as neither QB is expected to throw that many passes, with Jacoby Brissett having an attempts O/U of 27.5 and Mitch Trubisky having an attempts O/U of 31.5.
Thus, it’s unsurprising to see Cooper so heavily favored to go under his 4.5 O/U, as Brissett is only expected to throw about 27 times.
Cooper has had three receptions and nine receptions in his two games so far this season, with six targets and ten targets respectively.
Total Receptions Odds – Diontae Johnson
- Over 5.5 +105
- Under 5.5 -135
This could be a big day for WR unders, as Johnson is also favored to hit the under on his total receptions.
He put up seven receptions and six receptions in his previous two games, and was targeted 12 times and 10 times in those games.
He should have the opportunity to hit the Over in this game, but the sportsbooks still seem to consider it unlikely.
The Cleveland Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football. The game kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET.
