Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-2-1)
Down by 10 entering the fourth quarter of last week’s showdown with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Steelers woke up and scored 14 unanswered points in the final period to beat Jalen Ramsey and company on the road, 20-16. Ben Roethlisberger had a shaky outing against the Jags, as he had three interceptions, but he delivered when it mattered the most, going 27-of-47 for 314 passing yards and two touchdowns, including one in the fourth period. Steelers running back James Conner was total letdown with only 25 rushing yards on nine carries, but he can expect bigger holes to burst through this weekend, as Denver’s stop unit is among the worst against the run. The Broncos are allowing 127.9 rushing yards per game — 27th in the league.
The Steelers, who are averaging 29.9 points per game, are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four road games.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (4-6)
It was the Broncos who stopped the previously streaking Los Angeles Chargers, as they defeated Philip Rivers and crew on the road last week, 23-22. Denver’s backfield and defense did most of the heavy lifting, with running back Phillip Lindsay rushing for 79 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. Rivers had over 400 passing yards, but he got intercepted twice and sacked two times for a loss of 17 yards. Still, there’s plenty of improvements the Broncos could do on the defensive side of the ball, particularly on opponents’ third-downs, as evidenced by the Chargers going 9-of-15 on third downs. Although the Steelers have a lethal offense, they can hurt themselves with errors, so Denver will have to capitalize on those miscues. The Steelers are 23rd in the NFL with 1.5 giveaways per game. Conversely, the Broncos are getting 1.4 takeaways per contest.
The under is 4-0 in the Broncos’ last four home games.
Pittsburgh wins, 30-21.
