Thursday night's game

So, before the season started, my mouth, as it often does, got to running about how bad the Steelers are going to be this year. Never one to back down from an illogical challenge, the Steelers fan with whom I was speaking jumped at the opportunity to put some coin down against the Burgh losing nine games, as I boldly predicted they would.
Well, they're sitting at 5-7 now and all I need is for them to go .500 the rest of the way to collect.
Easy, right? Well, not if they have pattycake games like Tampa last week and, as logic would dictate, the Browns tomorrow night. Yeah, the same team that blasted my Best Bet to bits last week by beating K.C. on a week that they should've been looking ahead to knocking off the defending champs turned chumps. All of which is to say good God Cleveland needs to win this game. Unfortunately, I think they'll only cover. Which, as we all know, is a victory in and of itself.

At Pittsburgh -7.5 Cleveland OVER 36.5
