Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (+10.5)
Regular Season Record: 2-5
Kenny Pickett has a long way to go before becoming a reliable starter in the NFL. In the loss to Miami, he went 32/44 for 257 passing yards and a touchdown with three interceptions. His only touchdown was when he hooked up with fellow rookie and wide receiver George Pickens, who scored his first TD in the NFL. That could be the start of a hot streak for Pickens, who together with tight end Pat Freiermuth carried most of the burden downfield for Pittsburgh in Week 7. The Steelers’ defense could be the x-factor, though, in Week 8. Pittsburgh has given up just 28 points in its last two games.
