Should you bet on the Steelers over the Ravens
The Steelers are atop the AFC North at 4-2-1 and riding a three-game winning streak. Those last three wins came by a combined 46-points. Their last loss was to the Ravens in Pittsburgh by a 26-14 score on September 30th.
"They’re playing really well," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said about the Steelers. "They’re not giving up the big plays like they did a little more, earlier in the year. They’ve tightened up that part of it. They’ve talked about that. I’ve seen that.
"To me, they’re playing Steeler football in that sense. They’re playing hard defensively. They’ve made big plays on offense."
Finally, the Steelers are 8-0-1 in their last nine road games. This is a mentally strong team hitting mid-season form.
Should you bet on the Ravens over the Steelers
The good news for the Ravens is that they are 16-6 straight up in their last 22 divisional home games. And that is as good as it gets. Since the Ravens Week 4 victory over the Steelers, Baltimore is 1-2 and dropped to third in the division canceling out the team’s hot start.
If Baltimore loses this game, the Ravens drop to 4-5 heading into their bye week. That could be the beginning of the end for QB Joe Flacco’s tenure as a starter in Baltimore.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens Pick
