Bettors have to lay a little bit of extra juice in order to get the Jets at -3, as the line in this game has shortened throughout the week.

The total has gone OVER in four of the Jets’ last five games. The betting market continues to adjust to New York now that Sam Darnold is starting to click with his offense. OVER bettors have cashed in six of the Jets’ last seven visits to Cincinnati.

Betting records: Browns 5-6 SU, 4-6-1 ATS; Steelers 6-5 SU, 7-4 ATS
Notable trend: Cleveland has lost 10 straight games on the road against Pittsburgh.

Quick analysis: This is a quick turn-around rematch after the now-infamous brawl on Thursday Night Football two weeks ago. Pittsburgh will feature a new QB under center, as Devlin Hodges replaces Mason Rudolph for Mike Tomlin’s squad.

The Steelers provide value as a teaser candidate this week in a game where points will be tough to come by. The total has gone UNDER in five of the Steelers’ last six games and in nine of their last 11 against AFC opponents.
