Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Betting

The Pittsburgh Steelers might’ve won Wednesday’s delayed matchup with the COVID stricken Baltimore Ravens, but it sure didn’t feel like it once the clock read double zeroes. Maybe it had to do with the game being moved from Thanksgiving to Sunday to Tuesday and then finally to Wednesday; the first time an NFL game took place on Hump Day in eight years. Maybe Pittsburgh just had a tough time getting up for a hated rival it knew wasn’t at full strength. Whatever the case was, Mike Tomlin’s squad certainly wasn’t at its finest. “To be bluntly honest, I’m really disappointed in our performance tonight,” he said after Pittsburgh improved to 11-0. “We did enough to win tonight, that’s all.” Making matters worse, the league’s No. 1 ranked defense lost another key cog after stud outside linebacker Bud Dupree ripped his ACL and is now gone for the season. With Devin Bush Jr. already done for 2020 as well, the pressure of remaining undefeated along with the defense losing another integral piece could be tough to overcome. Most bothersome; the Steelers allowed Baltimore to cover because of a muffed punt and blown coverage late in the fourth quarter. And now, an ultra-motivated Washington Football Team will invade the Steel City on extended rest in Week 13. With the Bills, Colts and Browns still remaining on the docket, its likely Pittsburgh’s odds of pulling off an undefeated regular season fatten up at online sportsbooks this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 13 Matchup

With the Steelers spitting the bit for their wagering supporters against the Ravens, the betting markets have reacted. Pittsburgh was initially lined a 10.5-point home favorite to win for the 12th straight time, but the number to beat has since fallen considerably. Big Ben and company currently check in as 8-point chalk which still equates to the highest impost the team has had to cover when facing an opponent with all of its workable parts. With the Football Team rattling off wins in each of its last two games and fighting the New York Giants for division supremacy, Ron Rivera’s squad likely won’t exhibit any inclination to just rolling over and dying. If Pittsburgh manages to come out of this game unscathed, it will have earned it. Though the Steelers have been near locks on the money line when favored by 7.5 or more points at home in going 9-1 SU the last 10 times, they’ve only managed to split those games against the spread; they’re 1-1 ATS in that role this season. The O/U is the second lowest of the Week 13 slate. The under has cashed three of the last four times the Steelers were favored by a touchdown or more at home with an average of 42.5 points scored.

Though Alex Smith isn’t likely to burden Pittsburgh’s defense with his legs like RG III was just able to do, the Steelers’ run defense is going to have to account for Antonio Gibson. The rookie running back enters this tilt off the greatest game of his young career after ripping the Dallas Cowboys for 115 yards and 3 TD on 20 totes of the rock. While the Steelers run defense rates out as one of the best the league currently has to offer, it’s going to have its hands full with its linebacker corps now down two key cogs. Washington has averaged 145 rushing yards over its last three games while averaging a healthy 4.5 yards per carry. This is also going to be a very tough spot for Roethlisberger and the Steelers passing attack. Checking in right in back of the Steelers vaunted pass defense is the Football Team who concedes just over 193 passing yards per game to go along with a miniscule 6.2 yards per pass attempt (No. 5). It’ll be interesting to see how Pittsburgh’s offense reacts when JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and James Washington are bottled up; especially if James Conner is once again unable to go. Should Pittsburgh’s running game be unable to find much breathing room, the Steelers dominant offensive line could buckle under the pressure Montez Sweat and company are sure to bring. This is gonna be a good one folks!

Pittsburgh Steelers Week 12 Recap

Wednesday’s end result was a major downer for those that laid the points with the Steelers. Pittsburgh allowed both Baltimore touchdowns on a couple of gaffes, and only managed one touchdown in four trips to the red zone. Because of it, their undermanned opponent was able to kick the backdoor in late and was set up to pull off the upset had Roethlisberger and Washington not hooked up for a pair of crucial third down conversions. “Obviously we won, but it sure doesn’t feel like it,” said Roethlisberger, whose 1-yard strike to JuJu Smith-Schuster early in the fourth quarter gave the Steelers a 12-point lead they flirted with squandering. “Just not good football. It starts with me. It’s a mental game, it’s been a challenging and draining week but at the end of the day we need to step on the field and play good football when it’s time.” The onus doesn’t fall squarely on his shoulders. His teammates dropped a number of passes; many that would’ve gone for scores. Not mentioning any of that shows just how great a leader No. 7 truly is.

While the defense logged another touchdown after Joe Haden pick-sixed Griffin III midway through the first quarter, that season-ending knee injury to Dupree could prove to be a killer. Pittsburgh’s defense still remains elite, but his absence will undoubtedly show the remainder of the regular season and into the playoffs.
