Betting Preview for the Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens Week 17 Game on January 1, 2023
Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, MD
When: Sunday, January 1, 2023, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (+3.0)
Regular Season Record: 7-8
The Steelers got some momentum. After beating the Carolina Panthers on the road in Week 15, Pittsburgh pulled off a come-from-behind 13-10 win over the Las Vegas Raiders at home in Week 16. Kenny Pickett went 26/39 for 244 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception versus the Raiders. It wasn’t a sparkling performance, but he was steady down the stretch when the Steelers needed him to be that the most, finding George Pickens for the game-winning touchdown. Pickett suffered a concussion and exited early on the first meeting with the Ravens in Week 14, but he’s healthy now and should run the Steelers’ offense better than Mitchell Trubisky did.
The Steelers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (-3.0)
Regular Season Record: 10-5
While it doesn’t look like Lamar Jackson will be playing this week against the Steelers, the Ravens should be competitive at the very least in Week 17 in this rematch. Tyler Huntley has been decent as a temporary option under center for Baltimore, which is coming off a 17-9 win at home over the Atlanta Falcons last Saturday. The Ravens are 3-1 straight up in their last four games, thanks to their defense which has been extra stout lately. In fact, the Ravens have allowed just an average of 11.3 points in that span, which included their 16-14 win on the road over Pittsburgh in Week 14.
The Under is 5-0 in the Ravens’ last five games against AFC North division teams.
The Ravens win, 20-17.
