In advance of their Week 17 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cleveland Browns have attracted 36% of the bets and 53% of the money thus far.

Betting Impact:

The Browns are currently 9.5 point home favorites over the Steelers, per BettingPros consensus odds. As they have done all week, sharps appear to be weighing in heavily on teams that are more motivated entering Week 17. In this case, that certainly qualifies for the Browns as they need a win to secure a playoff berth, while the Steelers can be no worse than the No. 3 seed after clinching the AFC North division title. Despite the biggest wagers coming in on the Browns, oddsmakers would be just fine with the handle being split 53/47 at kickoff, as the two-way action would make them small winners no matter which side covers.
