Why Bet The Pittsburgh Steelers To Beat The NY Jets

Last week, the Steelers took down the Chiefs by a 43-14 score. They improved 3-1 SU and 3-1 ATS. They average 27.0 points per game (7th) and allow 20.0 points per game (11th).

Pittsburgh averages 262.3 passing yards (12th) per game. QB Ben Roethlisberger (1116 yards, 11 TDs & 4 INTs) leads the NFL in touchdown passes. He completed 22 of 27 passes for 300 yards and 5 touchdowns on Sunday Night Football last week. WR Antonio Brown (28 rec, 369 yards, 4 TDs) caught four balls for 64 yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs. He was also penalized and fined for his second excessive celebration infraction of the season.

"We have to get some clarity in terms of what’s legal and what’s not," said head coach Mike Tomlin at his weekly press conference Tuesday. "I know he doesn’t want it to be a negative thing. He wants to provide positive energy for us and entertain our fans. But we have to get detailed clarity on what he can and cannot do. You’ve got to acknowledge some guys are followed more closely than others. You saw that last night with (Odell) Beckham. AB is probably one of those guys and he probably needs to respond accordingly."

The Steelers average 112.3 rushing yards per game (13th). RB DeAngelo Williams (70 car, 265 yards, 3 TDs) scored his third touchdown of the season last week against the Chiefs. RB Le’Veon Bell (18 car, 114 yards, 0 TD) returned to action last week after serving a three-game suspension for a missed drug test. Bell did pretty much everything but find the end zone.

Pittsburgh has the 27th-ranked total defense in the NFL. The Steelers give up 317.0 passing yards per game (30th) and 78.3 rushing yards per game (4th). They have five sacks this season (28th).

"I know I’m the right guy for it," QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said on Monday. "We found ourselves in a little slump last year and came out of it. Through all my experience and all the things I’ve been through in my career, I know I’m the right guy to get this thing headed in the right direction."

WR Brandon Marshall (16 rec, 249 yards, 1 TD) caught four balls for 89 yards and one touchdown against Seahawks CB Richard Sherman last week. WR Eric Decker (9 rec, 194 yards, 2 TD) is week-to-week with a torn rotator cuff and could be headed for surgery.
