Green Bay Packers Vs Pittsburgh Steelers Line & Expert Pick

Green Bay Packers (5-5) at Pittsburgh Steelers (8-2)

Stream: NBC Sports Live
NFL Odds: Pittsburgh Steelers -14
The Packers for the third time in four games without Aaron Rodgers and backup quarterback Brett Hundley regressed in a big way in last week’s 23-0 shutout loss against Baltimore while the Pack never came close to covering the spread as a 2.5-point home underdog. Hundley tossed three interceptions and was sacked a whopping six times while Green Bay was held to just 75 rushing yards in the loss. On the season, Hundley has been mostly horrific in tossing just two touchdowns and seven interceptions since taking over for the injured Rodgers.
On the flip side of the coin, Pittsburgh looked fantastic in their 40-17 blowout of Tennessee this past weekend as Ben Roethlisberger put up 299 yards with four TD passes while hooking up with Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio brown 10 times for 144 yards and three scores. Pittsburgh’s defense picked off Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota four times and sacked him five times in the win.
Packers Vs Steelers Expert Pick
For me, this Week 12 pick is as easy as pie, seeing as how Brett Hundley clearly doesn’t have what it takes to be a starting caliber kind of quarterback in the NFL and will be going up against a Steelers team that is simply better on both sides of the ball coming into this contest.
The Packers are an uninspiring 2-6 ATS in their last eight games following a straight-up loss, 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games in November and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Conversely, the Steelers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six home games and a near-perfect 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Packers should just ‘pack it in’ right now and try to lose as many games as possible so they can get a high draft pick. Pittsburgh wins and covers the chalk as two-touchdown favorites people!
