The Cleveland Browns end the season in Pittsburgh and can knock the Steelers out of the playoffs while handing Mike Tomlin his first-ever losing season

Looking at the standings, it might not seem as though the Cleveland Browns have anything to play for in Week 18. But don’t tell them that, because they have a goal in mind — and most fans would share this feeling.

Following a win over the Washington Commanders in Week 17, Myles Garrett says they’re now going to do “everything in our power” to eliminate the Steelers from playoff contention. He said that if Cleveland isn’t going to the postseason, they’re not going to let Pittsburgh in.

But do those who predict the outcome of every game agree that Cleveland can win? Let’s dive into this game by looking at the odds and following that up with a prediction of our own.

Browns vs. Steelers Odds Week 18

Cleveland is again an underdog as the Steelers are at -3 as of Monday night. The Moneyline stands at +124 for the Browns while Pittsburgh is sitting at -104. Again, this isn’t expected to be a high-scoring game with the over/under at 38.5

Browns vs. Steelers Prediction Week 18

Pittsburgh has been on a role as of late and the way they won against Baltimore on Sunday Night Football was impressive. The difference is, the Ravens were playing with a backup quarterback and haven’t been trending in the right direction.

Cleveland, on the other hand, seemed to finally click this Sunday. Deshaun Watson and Amari Cooper were on the same page and Watson had three touchdowns.

It was easily his best outing and that came with only one-half of solid play. That confidence should carry over to Week 18 as they rally around a common cause — upsetting the Steelers.

Prediction: Browns 31, Steelers 20
