Pittsburgh vs Cleveland: Steel City Crew Open as Huge Chalk at Home

Pittsburgh vs Cleveland: Steel City Crew Open as Huge Chalk at Home

A thrilling slate of rivalry games opens the NFL 2014 regular season schedule today. Pittsburgh versus Cleveland is one of the games that caught our eye as this classic AFC North Division rivalry should be a fist-fight style contest. Part of the early Sunday action, this match kicks off at 1:00 PM ET on September 7, 2014, from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. We see a field goal deciding this battle.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Will ground & pound opponents

After back-to-back 8-8 seasons, Pittsburgh has missed the playoffs two years in a row. Looking to get back into the postseason, the Steelers have bulked up their running game as Lagarrette Blount was brought in from New England to support explosive starting back Le'Veon Bell. A concern in Pittsburgh is that their once dominant defense is now loaded with youngsters and will be tested often this year.

Cleveland Browns: Defense is the game plan for the Dawgs this season

Entirely over-hyped, the Johnny Football era begins in Cleveland with 2014 first round draft pick (22nd overall) QB Johnny Manziel acting as the backup to incumbent starter Brian Hoyer. Cleveland faces life without WR Josh Gordon after the 2013 NFL leading receiver is suspended for the season. That leaves TE Jordan Cameron as the focal point of the Cleveland offense - which could face a long season.

NFL Week 1 Advice: Not impressed by either of these teams, we see the Browns defense keeping Dawgs in this contest. Take the +7 (-115) spread price and tread lightly with a 200 unit wager on Cleveland at the online sportsbook. Bank a 50% Bonus and bet on the NFL at Bovada!
