Why Bet The Pittsburgh Steelers To Beat The Colts
The Steelers snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Browns 24-9 last week. They improved to 5-5 SU and ATS this season. They average 23.8 points per game (15th) and allow 21.5 points per game (13th).
"We just won a game, honestly, that’s the approach we have to have," Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said. "It really doesn’t mean anything. It means we won a football game."
Pittsburgh averages 268.2 passing yards per game (7th). QB Ben Roethlisberger (2524 yards, 20 TDs & 7 INTs) had a poor outing last week, despite the win. He completed 23 of 36 passes for just 167 yards against the Browns. Once again WR Antonio Brown (77 rec, 907 yards, 7 TDs) was the best of the wideouts. He grabbed eight balls for 76 yards. The Steelers average 96.2 rushing yards per game (23rd). RB Le’Veon Bell (128 car, 579 yards, 2 TD) had his best game of the season, running for 146 yards and one touchdown on 28 carries.
Pittsburgh’s defense ranks 22nd in total defense in the league. They allow 268.0 passing yards per game (26th) and allow 95.7 rushing yards per game (9th). Lawrence Timmons has 72 tackles, and Stephon Tuitt has 3.5 sacks.
Why Bet The Indianapolis Colts To Beat The Steelers
The Indianapolis Colts have now won two straight and are 5-5 SU and 5-4-1 ATS after beating the Tennessee Titans 24-17 last week. They average 26.7 points per game (7th) and allow 27.3 points per game (26th).
The Colts average 260.8 passing yards per game (12th). QB Andrew Luck (2827 yards. 19 TDs & 8 INTs) has thrown at least one interception in eight of the ten games this season. Luck may not be available for this game.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano announced on Monday that Luck is currently in concussion protocol, meaning that the quarterback would have to be cleared to play by Thursday or else he won’t be allowed to suit up.
Luck suffered the concussion during Indy’s 24-17 win over the Titans on Sunday, although it’s not clear at what point in the game it happened. Pagano said he thought Luck was concussed in the fourth quarter. There is no shortage of theories on Twitter, either, from armchair concussion spotters.
WR TY Hilton (57 rec, 888 yards, 5 TDs) is the offense’s top target. Hilton caught five passes for 97 yards and a touchdown against the Titans. Indianapolis averages 95.8 rushing yards per game (24th). RB Frank Gore (163 car, 642 yards, 4 TDs) was ineffective against Tennessee. He ran for 50 yards on 18 carries.
Indianapolis has the 30th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 285.0 passing yards per game (32nd) and 113.1 rushing yards per game (23rd). D’Qwell Jackson has 67 tackles, and Erik Walden has 8.0 sacks.

The Steelers are a complicated team on the road. But Big Ben, Brown & Bell will dominate one of the worst defenses in the NFL.
