There’s a big clash on Monday night in the AFC North as the Cleveland Browns head to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers whose postseason hopes are on the line in what will be Ben Roethlisberger’s final home game for the storied franchise.

Tom Carnduff of The Sporting Life gave us his top tips for the big game…

Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Monday night, 1:15am, Sky Sports NFL

I’ll take the Steelers on the handicap in this one and I wouldn’t be against taking them to win it outright on the Moneyline market too at odds-against.

The Browns did really well to compete with the Packers at Lambeau Field last week and Nick Chubb’s performance really grabbed the headlines, but we can’t let it distract us from how bad quarterback Baker Mayfield was in that game, where he threw four interceptions.

Things haven’t been great in Pittsburgh in recent weeks but they’ve got some solid home form this season despite their struggles and this is a Browns team that has issues on the road, so I have to side with the Steelers getting more than a field goal on the handicap.

Handicap: Pittsburgh Steelers +3.5

Not exactly the bravest pick but I think Nick Chubb in this game is hard to look past. I mentioned how good he was in Green Bay – 126 yards on just 17 carries with a score as well – and the Steelers have allowed over 100 rushing yards in each of their last 1ight games, and over 200 in two of their last three outings.

If you’re staying up to watch this you’re going to hear Nick Chubb’s name mentioned a lot. Not a value pick but worth siding with in this game all the same.
