Where: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood
When: Sunday, November 21, 2021, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (+5.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-3
The Steelers can’t wait to get back on the field after settling for a 16-16 tie with the winless Detroit Lions at home. Pittsburgh did not have Ben Roethlisberger, though, as the veteran quarterback landed on the COVID-19 list. Big Ben is said to have a high chance of playing this week. If can’t go, the Steelers will likely start Mason Rudolph again. The former Oklahoma State Cowboys star passed for 242 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 30/50 completions against the Lions. Running back Najee Harris rushed for 105 yards on 26 carries in that game. Harris can have another great game as he’s set to face the Chargers’ defense that struggled to contain Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook in Week 10. Pittsburgh will also look to take advantage of Los Angeles’ stop unit that is second-worst in the NFL in third-down success rate.
The Steelers are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last 5 games in Week 11.
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (-5.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-4
Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert has to come up with a much better performance than the one he showed up with during their 27-20 home loss to the Vikings in Week 10. In that game, Herbert went 20/34 for 195 passing yards and a touchdown and interception. He was also sacked twice for a loss of 24 yards. In any case, the Chargers hope to have their run game shine brighter than Pittsburgh’s. And it’s not a stretch to think that Austin Ekeler will go off in Week 11, considering that the Steelers’ defense that had just been torched by Lions running back D’Andre Swift for 130 rushing yards. But it’s still going to be mostly a passing attack for the Chargers’ defense, as they still trust Herbert can get the job done. They are seventh in the NFL with 270.0 passing yards per game and have a seventh-ranked offensive sack rate.
The Chargers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus teams with a winning record.
The Chargers win, 26-20.
