PITTSBURGH – Two betting trends over 19 years long are at stake when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Cleveland Browns as 2.5-point underdogs on Monday Night Football. The Steelers won 20 consecutive home games on Monday Night Football, giving appeal to their +115 moneyline odds.
Also, the Steelers won 19 consecutive regular season games against the Browns in Pittsburgh. Still, USA online sportsbooks are favoring the Browns to end that historic road slump against their AFC North divisional opponent.
Pittsburgh Steelers Vs Cleveland Browns Betting Lines
The Cleveland Browns dominated the Cincinnati Bengals 24-3 in Week 1, while the Steelers were embarrassed 30-7 at home by the San Francisco 49ers. Pittsburgh’s bad loss to San Francisco may work in their favor for Monday Night, as the Steelers have a 10-2 record following a loss of 20 or more points under Mike Tomlin.
Are There Any Trends Supporting Cleveland?
Well, that brutal Week 1 loss to the 49ers has negative implications based on a trend from the 2022 NFL season. Every opponent of the 49ers last season lost their following game regardless of the outcome.

That combined 0-16 record following games against the 49ers is an odd trend, but perhaps more relevant for Monday night’s matchup than the 2008 Steelers winning a home Monday Night Football game.
Also, the Steelers' home win-streak against the Browns is only a regular season streak that doesn’t include their home loss to the Browns in the 2020 NFL Playoffs.
Instead of betting on either team to win outright at NFL online sportsbooks, bet the 38.5-point total to go over with -105 odds. Six of their last seven head-to-head matchups went over 38.5 points, including going over in four straight games in Pittsburgh.
